  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Think it's time to say "Adios" to "Sabata"? Not a chance! The man in black is back (although, this time it's Yul Brynner in them boots), and he's been hired to steal a wagon full of gold. When Sabata discovers that he's been duped and is now the proud owner of bags full of sand, he promises revenge on those who double-crossed him. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
As with the first DVD in this Sabata trilogy, the anamorphically enhanced DVD looks dated. The picture can be quite soft, although details are adequate. The color scheme is pretty dull, with plenty of browns and brownish fleshtones. Still whites are bright and blacks are slightly milky, but generally deep. Sometimes the picture can look quite good. The source element is revealing of some flecks of dirt and minor artifacts. Pixelization is noticed, but edge enhancement is not a problem with this title. (Suzanne Hodges)
