A westen reworking of Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai" that's very entertaining.

A great Western, great actors, great story, great characters...there's a lot to like here. If the film drags a bit from time to time because of lengthy dialogue, well, I'll chalk it up to the times when the film was made. Brynner and McQueen make a great team here, as they are the main draws, but the whole cast is strong. The funny part was I kept looking for parts that was spoofed in The Three Amigos. If you enjoy Westerns, this should be on your list of films to see.

Memorable for: 1-the magnificent score. 2-James Coburn's classic cool Britt 3-Harry Luck's death scene 4-Bernardo's lecturing on courage and 5-Honor. Hign Noon is still the best western though.

This remake of Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai stands up, both in character and tone. I think it shelves some of the subtleties of Kurosawa's much longer film for some traditional Western grit, but the performances and iconic theme stick with you after watching it.

The American version of the Kurosawa classic Seven Samurai. Not as good as the original, but a fine film none-the-less.

This American response to Seven Samurai actually holds its own and is a classic in its own right. A great cast brings this film to life and keeps it interesting throughout. One of my favorite westerns.
