The Magnificent Seven
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.
