The Magnificent Seven

Directed by John Sturges

1960

The Magnificent Seven, a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, is a Western about seven gun fighters hired to protect a small Mexican village. It’s not as good as Seven Samurai, and some aspects have aged better than others, but The Magnificent Seven is well-acted and well-paced. It’s a good Western.

Would see.

    1. I don’t think they’re that similar. The Magnificent Seven is pretty much a straight Western. It’s the same plot as Seven Samurai. The Hateful Eight is pretty different; it has some mystery elements, and it’s a revisionist Western.
