"The western genre has gradually been making its way back into the cinematic fold. Recent dusty trail ditties such as David McKenzie's modern-day _Hell or High Water_ or Quentin Tarantino's _The Hateful Eight_ have proven to be recent saddle-tested gems that enthusiastically put cowpoke enthusiasts in movie theater seats. Furthermore, what would Hollywood do if it did not predictably invite yet another remake of a classic film into the moviegoers' mindset? Hence, director Antoine Fuqua takes a ch"

Matthew's better half, Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett), and her companion, Teddy Q (Luke Grimes), ride to the closest town looking for somebody who can help them and happen upon abundance seeker Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), who at first decays their proposition until he lear"
"**The new seven, all unique and diversified!** Basically, people watch it for either those actors and the director or for an entertertainment. But we all know the story, how it begins and how it ends, since it was the remake of the 1960 film. Actually, it was a successful remake, but not as magnificent as the original.

"Ditches all the cerebral factors in favour of dumb fun, but hey, it works. Final rating:★★★ - I personally recommend you give it a go."
"This is indeed a very good remake of an old classic. As always I am a bit worried when they make a remake of old classics that I liked. This remake is well worth watching though. Despite having a few minor gripes I went for 5 out of 5 stars on this one. Most of you are probably familiar with the story of The Magnificent Seven. Gunslinger gets hired to protect a village from the evil industrialist, he picks 6 buddies to help him, trains the villagers, digs in and sits down and waits for the ba"
"My only objection with this version is the use of the Gatling gun. Though I know it's only a movie and it creates more excitement, the gun never fired that many rounds per load. That said, I still enjoyed the movie."
