The Magnificent Seven 2016

Shoulda been called the Magnificent 7/10

Solid but could have been better. As a massive fan of the original movie I have to say this one did not quite live up to expectations. I am particularly dissapointed in director Antoine Fuqua. This has not been his finest hour. I realize an assembly movie is hard to do because basically 2/3 of the movie consists of the assembly of the team which does not help to drive a plot, but there have been movies where that has been done far better and by less accomplished directors. Avengers did it quite well for example. Here the pacing was off. After establishing the premise in the beginning it loses a lot of steam while collecting the 6 other main characters. That being said the epic gun fight in the end makes up for a lot if not all of it. Still the fact that the movie stumbles in the middle part is somewhat surprising even more so because it was actually done well in 1960. I give it a solid 7/10.

Nothing like the original , but it was entertaining. the cast was interesting I have great respect for their individual body of work so seeing them in this remake was enjoyable. No one can ever replace Brenner, McQueen, Bronson and Co. #ShiftvW8

WOW - a western in this millennium, and a good one, too. I found the action in this movie riveting. The magnificent seven were well chosen and brought a variety of flavour that made this a great meal. Good story, good acting, good action. I thought this movie was thoroughly enjoyable. I give it a 9 (superb) out of 10.

Yes lets make a remake with more diversity so that everyone is happy and its political correct. Drab and stupid.

Nice entertainment with good acting, nothing more nothing less

Good photography, but too many cowboy stereotypes, during the campfire nobody was talking? Some joke, anywa, the village houses too clean, is a movie for a family Sunday only.

Reassuringly old fashioned western, this may not be magnificent but it is an enjoyable remake of the 1960 original.

Good guys never miss and can survive multiple gunshot wounds.

Bad guys never hit and die immediately when shot once.

Here is my dilemma. I like western but I don´t like remakes. But since I like western more than I dislike remakes I gave it a try. And the 1960s version is kind of a remake itself.

Simply seen stand alone this was good. They adapted the story a little bit but they kept the spirit. It´s shortened a bit which takes a lot out of it. But altogether it was entertaining, the shootouts were great. There is one downside for me at that is the characters. I don´t mind the diversity but they are lacking depth. I remember watching the 60s version I really felt for them and I really believed they helped to do some good and in a way redeem themselves for what they did in the past. I totally missed that here. In adition the bad guy was lame too, again lacking depth.

I strongly recommend to check out the 60s version which is one of the best western with one of the most memorable scores ever written. It was nice to here that again in the remake. If only during the end credits.

Fast placed action, with a lot of bullets flying with a mix of the good, the bad, and ugly... you've got a man with no horse that has a few tricks, a bear that wears human clothes, a nervous sharper shooter, a Japanese guy that's good with his knifes, a Mexican, an Indian with a bow... and not forgetting the black man, the leader.. you can't go wrong with this film, it's got a magnificent cast, shoots a great western picture, and lots of laughter!

I enjoyed this one; it was quite entertaining, although it is not really my genre.

pretty good modern Western with a nice diverse cast and some great action sequences

Not too bad as far as remakes go, but I can see why some fans were thoroughly disappointed in the result. It felt more real than the original thanks to good casting and performances, but the story just wasn't compelling and the characters are left undeveloped by the end - perhaps a mini series wild have done it better justice than this effort. Worst of all was the old, dated, cheesy score - not only was there no fresh music the style is still inappropriate for the period - Fail.

You would think it is a great story and there will be a massive climax but no... Just kinda drizzled along. Good acting though.

A Hollywood reboot done right...for once.

I've got a special place in my heart for well-made westerns, and the original The Magnificent Seven from 1960 are among the top of the pile. It's homage to the Seven Samurai as well as the story and action were all done right...so I dreaded watching this for a long while.

The Magnificent Seven surprised me in a good way. Everything about it was just an all out, fun, western action. The cast was excellent, and all of the seven had their moment. The character development of the leads was just so-and-so with a couple of them, but I guess it wasn't time to go "in-depth" with them all. The only character I didn't particularly like was Peter Sarsgaards baddie...waaaaaay over the top, and made a caricature of a typical western crook. Could have been handled better...

This is a must see if you are a fan of the genre, and I believe most people that like their movies with fast-paced wit and action will be entertained as well.

I really enjoyed that movie. What you need on a relaxed Saturday night.

Great movie! Even as a remake. The diversity of the movie only helped. I don't believe there was an agenda with the exception of,"Let's get a bunch of actor's to fill spots that in any casted movie they would play alone in said movie." The entertainment factor is there. The over the top gunfights are there. What more do you want from an up to date western?

It takes more than 7 "bankable" actors to make a great movie. New proof that Hollywood is unable to achieve new goals and renewal...

loading replies

Sure a more cynical mind would write this off as merely a lazy cash-in, simply updating things by shoehorning in diversity, but that doesn't matter to me when the end product is a good time. Which this was.

A remake of a remake. Better watch the original.

I will not give more then 1/10 with forced gay or forced racial equality. Juste hate when it is so forced. Grous!

Had forgotten how fun westerns can be. Awesome movie, way better than expected.

Its actually shocking to see a big budget blockbuster that isn't trying to create a franchise now. The Magnificent Seven is a great and surprisingly funny self contained movie that assembles a great cast with all the fun that you can expect.

Id say it was good to watch a well put together western. They are a rarity anymore.

A great shoutout to both the original western and the Akira Kurosawa film it was based off of. My favorite part? They really mastered that "we're getting the band back together" feel.

this was a great movie the actors played perfect rolls my opinion it was as good as the original and possibly a bit more suspensfull..loved it

I loved this film, one of the best of the year. Fuqua delivers the expanse of the old school western, assembles a team that are interesting and entertaining, and all fight for screen time, never bored when any of them are on screen. The action is great, and the pacing of the movie is spot on. Another winner from Fuqua and Washington. I love how the original score doesn't play until the end credits.....at which point it feels it has earned the right to play it.

I give this movie a 7-magnificent; Denzel; Chris; Ethan; Peter; etc., are all good actors however it lacks the energy of the original..great music of James Horner #ShiftvW8

As historically accurate as Wild Wild West. I almost expected a giant robot spider. However, the cast makes it fun, especially Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy).
While Peter Sarsgard (Flight Plan) could play a great villain in his sleep. Well, just not in Green Lantern. Denzel Washington (Training Day) and Ethan Hawke (Training Day) aren't bad either but Pratt steals the show.
It was also nice to get one final musical score by the late great James Horner (Aliens, Willow).
