Storyline

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

The character name of "Red Harvest" is an homage to the Dashiell Hammett story of the same name, which Akira Kurosawa borrowed for the plot of his other great samurai tale, Yojimbo (1961). Kurosawa wrote the movie Seven Samurai (1954), upon which The Magnificent Seven (1960) is based. The Red Harvest plot was also used as the model for A Fistful of Dollars (1964). See more »

Goofs

Both the Seven and other male characters are a remarkably liberal group for 1879. The seven represent at least five different ethnic groups, and the only overt sign of bigotry in the film is Faraday's "Oh, good! We have a Mexican." The slur "redskin" was also used only once. The racism Billy Rocks faced was implied in a story. Chisolm gets lots of push-back, but apparently not based on his race. All of this not likely in that era. See more »

Quotes

Sam Chisolm: Powder Dan ran with an outlaw name of July Bully, may he rest in peace.
Bartender: He's dead?
Sam Chisolm: Yes, sir.
Bartender: How'd he die.
Sam Chisolm: [whispers] I whispered in his ear.
Bartender: Yeah, what's that?
Sam Chisolm: Come here.
[both lean in]
Sam Chisolm: Bring them in.

Crazy Credits

Part of the closing credits are a montage of the Magnificent Seven and their actor credits, which ends with a big red seven that contains the faces of the seven. The theme from The Magnificent Seven (1960) plays over this montage. See more »

A lot of fun
20 September 2016 | by (Delft, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

After I saw the trailer of the movie I was expecting a fun western with just good action and nice characters because the cast is great on paper, but then the question of course is if it also works for the movie. Well for me it worked. I just had a lot of fun with it.

I have to say that I haven't seen the original movies that this is a remake of so I didn't have that to compare it to, therefore if I compare it to something, I compare it to other movies I have seen.

Because the movie has a lot of things I have already seen in other movies (I won't say what because that may be considered spoiling the movie). Therefore the story isn't what makes this movie and if you're looking for a great story, the movie might not be for you.

What the movie does have first of all is a great cast that delivers. Denzel Washington gives the best performance of the movie by far but also Chris Pratt shows that Guardians wasn't a fluke, Hawke, D'Onofrio and just the entire cast works very well together for this nice team of 7 misfits that has to save the town.

Also the action is great, it's very true to the old westerns. There are some very tense stand-offs and when the shooting starts, the action is fantastically shot, directed and just well executed.

And the movie has a good sense of humor, there are good comedic moments that give good levity to the movie.

Because the movie actually is pretty towards an R-rated movie, it has some harsh and brutal things happening that might not be for kids. It's one of the most mature PG-13 movies I have seen.

All in all, the Magnificent Seven is a fun time in the theater, probably not as good as the original but better than most remakes these days (looking at you Ghostbusters) and I give it an 8.5/10
