Story: The classic story of The Magnificent Seven – based on the 1960 movie that was in turn based on Akira Kurosawa's 1954 Japanese-language film Seven Samurai – gets a modern retelling with a cool star cast, all helmed by Fuqua. The town of Rose Creek is under the tyrannical control of Bartholomew Bogue (Sarsgaard) and this leads the townsfolk to seek the help of a ragtag group of seven gunslingers who have their ethics in the right place. They are Sam Chisolm (Washington), Josh Farraday (Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Hawke), Jack Horne ( D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Lee), Vasquez (Rulfo) and Red Harvest (Sensmeier). The dusty town in the Wild West is the backdrop for the showdown between good guys and bad.

Review: Thankfully, this iteration of the classic will not make John Sturges or Kurosawa turn in their respective graves, as while it is in no way comparable to those classics, it delivers the goods admirably well. And by goods, the connotation is volleys and volleys of gunfire, sound and fury.

While Chisholm is the leader of this rat pack, the limelight is clearly stolen by Pratt, who last and most notably excelled in Guardians Of The Galaxy as Peter Quill. But the others among the seven aren’t slouches in the acting department either. Horne quotes Bible verse and relies on brute force; Harvest keeps his mouth shut and is deadly with knives and as for the others, Robicheaux is a deadly marksman. Each will have their role to play in the final showdown with Bogue and his army of rogues and marauders.

The recreation of the Wild West, expansive Prairie and the dusty, rugged locales are quite amazing. You’ll find yourself discounting the fact that the story line is unabashedly barebones. But then again, you don’t go to watch a Wild West film expecting Shakespearean dialogue complexity now do you?

A good mix of gravitas, comic relief and attempts at some deep stuff with lines like “What we’ve lost in the fire, we’ll find in the ashes”. Saddle up for a thrilling ride with this modern-day Western packed with action.

very poor and totally incomparable to the original Yul Brynner movie. The scenes are neither catchy or exciting. A pathetic approach to pathos has also not succeeded.
