Fun Spaghetti Western With Great Actors, 9 October 2006
Author: Bensch

"Sono Sartana, Il Vostro Becchino" aka. "Sartana The Gravedigger" aka, "I Am Sartana Your Angel Of Death" is a quite humorous Spaghetti Western with a Great Cast.

Like in all the original "Sartana" movies he stars in, Gianni Garko is once again very cool as Sartana, the genre's most well-dressed (anti-)hero. This time, bounty hunter Sartana needs to clear his name after someone robbed a bank dressed up as Sartana and he is blamed and hunted by his fellow bounty hunters. Accompanied by a fellow bounty hunter, the not so well-dressed Buddy Ben (Frank Wolff), Sartana is out to seek those who dared to blame him for their crime.

"Sartana The Gravedigger" is not exactly a 'Comedy' Spaghetti Western, but it's certainly a very funny one. Hot Dead, a bounty killer, fast shot and very unlucky gambler, played by the great Klaus Kinski is one of the ironical characters who make this film so funny. Another funny character is villainous and slightly insane bounty killer Deguejo (played by B-Movie star and regular Spaghetti Western actor Gordon Mitchell), who is, as most of the characters played by Mitchell, very exaggerated, but exaggerated in a good, funny way. The great Frank Wolff is funny in his role, and Gianni Garko is great and epitomizes coolness (as in the other Sartana movies).

The movie's score is pretty good, although the composers actually just plagiarized the work of Ennio Morricone (Kinski's theme in this movie is basically a lesser version of Cheyenne's theme in "Once Upon A Time In The West" and the rest of the film's soundtrack also resembles various Morricone compositions). It's okay to learn from the master, however.

All things considered, "Sartana the Gravedigger" is a good Spaghetti Western with great actors (especially Kinski, Wolff and Garko). Highly recommended to every fan of Spaghetti Westerns. 7/10
