The casting of The Magnificent Seven including Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Vincent D’ Onofrio, Ethan Hawke, and Peter Saarsgaard, is simply amazing. The movie is directed by Antoine Fuqua. Having said that we have to look into the other aspects also. Well, is watching this western remake of the 1960 classic film with the same name (which itself was an adaptation of “The Seven Samurai) worth your money? Read further to know.

Plot

A small town Rose Creek is dominated by Peter Saarsgaard. The natives hence go to a disorganized team of seven gunsmen, who are otherwise reliable. Denzel Washington heads this group. Now watch the fight between the good and the bad.

Star Performances

Denzel Washington is simply outstanding as the leader of a disorganized gang of gunmen, who is doing his best to help a village to be freed from the annoyances given by a robber. Peter Saarsgaard is at his wicked best while others have done what is required of them.

Analysis

Director Antoine Fuqua joins hands with Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke after Training Day. Training Day would have made you expect more from the director and to be honest, the film works in bits and pieces. However, the director has given some outstanding action sequences which gain your attention after the awesome star cast.

What’s there?

  • The positives of the classic are presented in a pretty convincing manner.
  • Mauro Fiore’s cinematography is breath-taking.
  • The time-worn and rugged locales are picturized in an amazing way.
  • There are some moments of comedy in the film that will entertain you.

What’s not there?

  • The movie concentrates too much on violence.
  • The villain’s character is not properly sketched.
  • The plot of The Magnificient Seven is pretty weak. Also the proceedings are chaotic.

Verdict

The terrific star cast along with some positives makes this movie watchable once.
