The Magnificent Seven: Story Plot

The exemplary story of The Magnificent Seven – taking into account the 1960 film that was thus in light of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 Japanese-dialect film Seven Samurai – gets a modern remake with an amazing star cast, all helmed by Fuqua. The town of Rose Creek is under the overbearing control of Bartholomew Bogue (Sarsgaard), and this leads the townsfolk to look for the assistance of a ragtag gathering of seven gunslingers who have their morals in the opportune spot. The dusty town of the Wild West is the background for the confrontation between good people and terrible.

Critics Review

The film got a mixed response from the critics. “The new movie is as moth-eaten as the serapes strewn through the 1960 film, but there’s no denying the appeal of the image of Denzel Washington riding a horse and shooting a Colt, said Manohla Dargis of The NYTimes. “Copying an earlier era’s empty slickness still produces only empty slickness” Said by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of A.V. Club.

“Fuqua is trying for John Ford meets Sergio Leone: a funky classical sweep, with room for delirious shootouts. The trouble is that he mimics the trademarks of those directors without their élan.” Said Owen Gleiberman of Variety.

With “The Magnificent Seven,” Fuqua gives us a great Western story of reclamation and vengeance, pressed with wonderful activity successions, scrumptious exchange, and enough star energy to have justified a flashy summer discharge. Put this remake is quite damn great in its particular right.
