Magnificent Seven

The Magnificent Seven is a remake of a 1960 film. The 1960 film is a remake of 1954’s the Seven Samuari. I saw the 1960 film but not the 1954 film.

Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, and Byung Hun Lee star in this movie as gunfighters hired to defend a small western town. This remake is good.

It could have used the original movie score more. I am not saying the new score is bad. The original is a classic.

The original is better but I think this one is worth re-watching. It might not be the remake of the last few years.

It is rated PG-13 and for all the death, it is bloodless. I am not sure if that matters or not. Maybe I wouldn’t have noticed if critics didn’t mention it.
