What I Think of The Magnificent Seven Movie

Cowboys and Indians movies.

I’m trying to recall movies I’ve seens with the Wild Wild West as the theme.  I could remember some scene from the Back to the Future 3, the Wild Wild West with Will Smith (?) , Indiana Jones, Pocahontas and Toy Story.  The rest are blur, but I do remember seeing some black and white movies that my brother or father used to watch.

Just recently I went to see The Magnificent Seven Movie and I was entertained big time.  As much as I was not a fan of gunfights and such kind of violence you see in cowboy films (you know shooting people like playing in the arcade for stuff toys), I was surprised that I stayed until the end and actually enjoyed the film.

I love the production, the set was applaudable,  I can see the effort in creating an entirely old Wild West feel.    I actually feel like watching an old movie except the humor was somehow relatable and timely plus the actors were from the present.

The Magnificent Seven is actually a remake of a 1960’s film,  this one is directed by Antoine Fuqua for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Columbia Pictures’ .   Plot goes around the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople, led by Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett), employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Faraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier).  As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money, as such they were called magnificent.

Denzel Washington looked really younger in this movie, Ethan Hawke look older here.  I love Chris Pratt character here.  Watch out for the Red Harvest character played by Martin Sensmeier, I think this is his big break, he was one of the eye candies here.  Matt Bomer was one of the eyecandies too, although his role was cut short .  Emma Cullen played by Haley Bennett reminded me a lot of Jennifer Lawrence. Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio) reminded me a lot of Hodor!

I love the diversity of the characters in the movie, American, Mexican, Irish and Native American (Comache) , and Asian, working together , different cultures yet a lot of dynamics!  The characters blend well together.

What made this movie timely is the idea of tyranny, happening in our world today , the Magnificent Seven  is a special group of people who come together to fight tyranny.

I think this is a boys movie, especially though who loves guns and gunfight and war games and stuff.  This movie was action-packed.  Fight scenes were very well executed, well done.  I love the casting.

The Magnificent Seven will be showing in cinemas in the country starting September 21, 2016,

How about you, what Cowboys and Indians movie have you seen before?

Stay gorgeous everyone!
