Return of Sabata / È tornato Sabata... hai chiuso un'altra volta (1971)

3.0 out of 5

Sabata returns with Lee Van Cleef in the lead role and this time there is an attempt to do more with the film. More acrobatics, more comedy. Unfortunately sometimes less is more and the slapstick here feels a little laboured.

That is not to say the film is all bad. Some of the original cast return, and similar themes to the original are revisited. It just could have done with turning things down a notch or two. The film is simply far too hyperactive for it's own good.
