This is Chris Pratt's first western. See more »


The Seven represent at least five different ethnic groups, and the film shows very little overt bigotry. Faraday says "Oh, good! We have a Mexican." The slur "redskin" is used only once. The racism Billy Rocks faced was implied in a story. Chisolm gets lots of push-back, but apparently not based on his race. Vasquez repeatedly calls Faraday "Güero." Faraday asks what it means, and receives no reply. It's a Mexican racial slur meaning "Whitey." The two former Confederates, Faraday and Robicheaux, and African American former Union soldier Chisholm would likely have at least some remaining animosity. A Mountain Man who has taken "300 Comanche scalps" would certainly be not be welcome by a Comanche. Everyone looked down on Asians in 1879. However, their mutual respect for each other as fighting men may go some way to explain the lack of racial tension. See more »

Crazy Credits

Part of the closing credits are a montage of the Magnificent Seven and their actor credits, which ends with a big red seven that contains the faces of the seven. The theme from The Magnificent Seven (1960) plays over this montage. See more »

An energetic and highly entertaining Western.
29 September 2016 | by Troy_CampbellSee all my reviews

The Western has long become a rarity on the big screen, replaced over the last few decades as the dominant action genre first by bulging muscles and explosions, then by spandex and superpowers. So this big-budget remake of the 1960 classic comes as a welcome breath of tobacco-filled air, even if it doesn't quite live up to its predecessor. But as a piece of popcorn entertainment, it fires on all cylinders. Not surprisingly with Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Equalizer, Shooter) calling the shots, subtlety is pushed aside for frenetic set pieces and belief-defying heroics, especially in the wild climactic showdown that demonstrates minimal CGI does not equal minimal fun. Amongst all the balletic gunplay and macho posturing there's a relatively simple story: town is overrun by a dastardly villain (Peter Sarsgaard oozing creepiness), town employs cowboys-for-hire (guess how many) for protection, town fights with said cowboys leading the way. That the plot requires little more explanation then that highlights the focus of the movie, for better and for worse, however the fact it never feels shallow or superficial can be attributed to the exhilarating action and the ultra-cool cast. And what a fantastic cast it is. Denzel Washington is reliably charismatic as the contemplative leader, Chris Pratt is magnetic as the group's joker, Ethan Hawke is intense as the tormented sniper, Byung-hun Lee is enigmatic as the blade-wielding assassin, Vincent D'Onofrio is intriguing as the philosophical killer and Haley Bennett is fierce as the townswoman who stands her ground. Best of all, the eclectic characters – also including Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as the rowdy Mexican and Martin Sensmeier as the Indian warrior – share a wonderful chemistry that makes them utterly watchable from start to finish. An energetic remake with style to spare, The Magnificent Seven is a rip-roaring adventure that'll please long-neglected Western fans to no end.
