Out­laws back in the sad­dle

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - WEEKEND TICKET - The Mag­nif­i­cent Seven (12) ●●●●● The Girl with All the Gifts (15) ●●●●● Ti­tle rat­ing

As re­makes go, this rol­lick­ing ride sad­dles up on the right side of the qual­ity scale.

The charis­matic cast would be fun to share a drink in a sa­loon with and the script hon­ours the beloved orig­i­nal.

But the over­abun­dance of clichés be­comes dis­tract­ing and the 12 cer­tifi­cate re­sults in a lack of truly sear­ing, largely blood­less dan­ger. An in­ter­est­ing spin on the zom­bie genre makes for a tough – but grip­ping – watch.

Young debu­tante Sen­nia Nanua is a rev­e­la­tion as the pos­si­ble saviour of mankind dur­ing an im­pend­ing apoc­a­lypse.

The so­cial com­men­taries bite harder than any flesh-eater and scares and mis­trust align to out­stand­ing ef­fect.
