Storyline

Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns. As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.

Trivia

Although this film is not a straight remake of The Magnificent Seven (1960) and the characters have different names, parallels can be drawn between them. Chris and Sam are both team leaders and black-clothed guns for hire. Vin and Faraday are both broke gambling drifters. Lee was a sharp shooter suffering from PTSD, similar to Robicheaux. Britt is a lethal knife fighter, as is Billy Rocks. Vasquez and Chico are both Mexican, though Chico was far less experienced. Bernado O'Reilly looks like a Native American, like Red Harvest. Harry is a large imposing man, much like Jack Horne. See more »

Goofs

If Sacramento and Amador City represent actual places in California, the scenery is very different from the real-life counterparts. The film was shot in Arizona and New Mexico. See more »

Quotes

Vasquez: Never trust a people who bury their dead above the ground.
Goodnight Robicheaux: Don't call the alligator "big mouth" till you cross the river.

One Hell of a Ride
19 September 2016 | by allstarrunnerSee all my reviews

Finally another great western movie!

To be sure, all the western clichés are found in this movie; and I don't have a problem with that! One of the things I liked best about this western was the pacing, sometimes I find westerns to be a little too slow (for my personal taste - subjective, I know) but I felt this movie nailed it, even with a run time a little over 2 hours.

The action scenes are great, very well done. The casting and acting was great - Denzel does a great job as the leader of this rag tag group of guys. Pratt, of course, nails the comedic relief role.

The movie carried a surprising amount of "heart" throughout it all the way to the end.

Here is the bottom line: Yes, this movie is worth your hard earned money to go see in the theater.
