I’m a little surprised to see just how well-liked A Fistful of Lead is here, I thought it was the worst Sartana (well, actually I don’t consider it official) of the series, by far. I kind of disliked Light The Fuse… Sartana Is Coming for flirting with parody a little too much, but this one seemed to be a straight-out parody! Plus, I’ve always thought of Sartana as a lovable jerk, but in this one he just came across as a plain jerk (and I got nothing against Hilton). I remember kinda liking the film at the beginning, but by the end I just didn’t care about it anymore. Watching a decent copy of the movie with Italian audio might soften my position, but I really don’t feel like investing any money to find out.
No Gianni Garko, no Franco Pesce, not even the same suit and the fact that it really doesn’t fit in the evolution of the series (Light The Fuse… Sartana Is Coming really feels like an ending, albeit a degenerate one), I can’t consider this an official Sartana.
