Goofs

The year is 1879 and all of the actors have perfect looking teeth which wasn't characteristic of that time period. People back then in fact had rotted or no teeth. (This is not necessarily true. While dentistry in 1879 was not on par with that of the 21st century, rotting teeth are rarely common in any area as they are a source of illness and pain and are removed when they cause problems. And while many people had missing teeth, very few had no teeth at all. As with today, most people with missing teeth lost their molars first and then later their visible teeth) See more »

The OK 7
23 September 2016 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Come on now. If you're going to re-make "The Magnificent 7" let's do it magnificently. Where was that great music? Where is the superlative cast that include Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, and Vladimir Sokoloff? You might argue that Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt are on a level with Brynner and McQueen, but I wouldn't. Pratt certainly has potential, but he doesn't yet have McQueen's star power. The rest are pale imitations, except perhaps for an unbelievably fat Vincent D'Onofrio who is certainly entertaining.

This is a modern re-telling. You might call it the Diversity 7. The producers threw in just about every minority you can think of – Mexican, Asian, Black, Woman. The only thing missing was a "little" person .

Personally I liked the idea of the woman, played very well by Haley Bennett who has been with Washington before ("The Equalizer").

An action film like this works only when the villain is villainous. Eli Wallach was terrific. Peter Sarsgaard wouldn't scare a fly.

Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed it. It's OK, but it's not magnificent.
