Sabata (Indio Black in the original Italian version) is hired by a group of Mexican revolutionaries to help them rob the occupying Austrian government of a cache of gold dust. When Sabata and his gang steal the wagon they think is loaded with the gold, they find the barrels are filled with sand. Thus begins a game of cat and mouse as the Austrian troops and Sabata's men battle back and forth, each trying to get the gold.


After having successfully created a new type of SW hero with the weapon experts Sartana and Sabata, director Parolini was provided with one of the bigger SW budgets to realise this eventful adventure film with colorful photography and a great Bruno Nicolai score. Instead of just making another Sabata film, Parolini called the basically same character Indio Black and put Yul Brynner in a slightly silly looking fringe costume. But for the international release, the film and Brynner were promptly retitled to Sabata, so that this is now mostly regarded as the middle part of a trilogy. And why not, as it's not difficult to imagine Lee van Cleef reprising his role in this similar narrative structure. And of course Parolini has placed all his trademarks and many of his familiar faces here. Adios Sabata is probably his best directed film.
