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.

Goofs

The one time we see Chisolm reload his Colt Single Action Army revolver, he flips open the loading gate and spins the cylinder upside down which quickly dumps his empty shells to the ground. Spent shells would not be able to loosely fall out of the cylinder like that due to the pressure of firing the bullet causing the mouth of the cartridge to swell and basically get stuck in the cylinder. He would have needed to use the ejector rod to punch the shell out. However, it's Hollywood, and that looked way cooler than having to eject a single shell at a time. See more »

One of, if not the best remake of the last few years. Easily the best western since Open Range. I loved this movie.
20 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Money for blood's a peculiar business." After years of being terrorized by a wealthy barron the citizens of Rose Creek have had enough and want to fight back. When Sam Chisolm (Washington) is recruited for help he decides to look for men to join him. He finds Josh Faraday (Pratt) and 5 others to head to the town and do what is right, or to exact revenge, whatever comes first. I was a little leery of this movie. I am getting burnt out on the constant remakes and 99% of them are terrible and not needed. This, I will admit, is part of the 1%. Most remakes suffer because the original material was so good and they try to change so much that it angers some. Others fail because they try to be the exact same thing and its obvious how much they are not. This movie finds the sweet spot. The feel of the original is here, the spirit of Seventh Samurai is here, and a modern updated twist is here. The one thing this movie had over the original was more back story and character development. You really understand why the town wants and needs help, and you also care and want the seven to succeed. This is a movie I could go on and on about but I will say this is one of the biggest surprises of the year and I could not recommend this more. Overall, one of, if not the best remake of the last few years. Easily the best western since Open Range. I surprisingly give this an A+.
