“Gianni Garko is back as Sartana, and this time heu0026#39;s sporting a thick blonde Swedish- style moustache! Iu0026#39;m also beginning to think heu0026#39;s some sort of jinx, as yet again he witnesses the massacre of a bunch of miners by some bad guys and gets mixed up in some sort of land grab treachery involving crooked bank managers weu0026#39;ve all seen a million times by now.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut who cares? Itu0026#39;s Sartana, and it seems the longer the series goes on, the more ridiculous (and therefore enjoyable) the films get! Heu0026#39;s still dressing in goth fashion and he still has his four chambered Derringer, but this time round heu0026#39;s also got a pack of cards with sharpened edges! You tell me if a film is meant to be taken seriously when Sartana flicks a card across a room into a bible, at the exact page he wants the bad guy to read!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe crooked bank manager (and his many crooked employees) is pretty good too, sending wave after wave of hired killers after Sartana, only for Sartana to waste them, then pay for their funeral, only for the bad guys to use that funeral to try and kill Sartana. Sartana also acts like some sort of ghost in this one, seemingly teleporting anywhere he wants to, which just adds to the strangeness. Plus he can light fireworks by firing a gun at them, at night. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNo Mexicans in the one strangely, but we do have George Wang as some mystic casino owner who spends the entire film in a chair only to reveal heu0026#39;s not crippled, heu0026#39;s u0026#39;just very lazyu0026#39;.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI might have to track down Sartana The Gravedigger, Light the Fuse…Sartana is Coming and any other Iu0026#39;ve missed.”
