Not Seven Samurai, but Still Epic

It is hard to review this movie without referring or comparing it to 'The Seven Samurai'. This movie did the best job a Western could do as a remake of the Seven Samurai. In tone and character it matches or even exceeds that of the original. In other aspects it fails to live up to the original. One of my most favorite aspects of the original were the multiple attacks by the bandits. It caused for more of a battle-type movie. I also loved how this allowed for a countdown of the enemies left attacking. One of the most memorable scenes of the original were the nightly crossing-out of enemies. This movie could have kept the same aspect, but it chose not to. I didn't personally favor the way the first battle happened. I would have rather had them keep the surprise attack factor. One thing the ...

The Magnificent Seven

"Learn or die." A bandit raids food at a Mexican village. They get assistance from a skilled gunsman named Chris (Yul Brynner), who hires Chico (Horst Buchholz), Bernardo (Charles Bronson), Britt (James Coburn), Lee (Robert Vaughn) and Vin (Steve McQueen).

Some good quotes from the picture: O'Reilly - "Well, now don't you kids be too disappointed if your plans don't work out." Chris - "Only the farmers won. We lo...

"The Magnificent Seven" by Yojimbo

Based on a story by Akira Kurosawa, starring Yul Brinner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn and Eli Wallach, directed by John (The Gunfight At The OK Corral/The Great Escape) Sturges and accompanied by one of the best musical scores ever written, and you have the ingredients for possibly the perfect old school western. Poor old Horst Buchholz didn't stand much of a chance up against an ensemble cast of this quality, but he makes a decent fist of a character who is essentially an amalgam of two characters from Seven Samurai which makes way for Vaughn's gunslinger who has lost his nerve and slots seamlessly into the action. It does take a more popular culture slant on the original's more arthouse sensibilities, but it works perfectly. Brinner and McQueen make a bri...
