The Mag­nif­i­cent Seven

The Sun (Malaysia) - - THE BIG PICTURE -

Horne (Vin­cent D’Onofrio), Mex­i­can out­law Vasquez (Manuel Gar­cia-Rulfo) and lone Co­manche war­rior Red Har­vest (Martin Sens­meier).

The seven then train the lo­cals for the big bat­tle they know is com­ing.

The sto­ry­line is pre­dictable, and di­rec­tor Fuqua could have delved deeper into the back­sto­ries of the seven who have come to save the town­folk from Bogue.

How­ever, this is still a de­cent shoot-em-up west­ern, with plenty of ac­tion that will re­mind you of why this genre was once so pop­u­lar.

The orig­i­nal 1960 The Mag­nif­i­cent Seven (which was based on a Ja­panese film Seven Samu­rai) had an en­dur­ing score writ­ten by Elmer Bern­stein.

The new score by the late James Horner pales in com­par­i­son, but thank­fully, you get to hear the orig­i­nal briefly in the clos­ing cred­its.
