Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns. As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
The year is supposedly 1879. The flag in the mining camp has 37 stars, though. The current flag of that day (starting 1877) had 38 stars. See more »

Pretty. I mean good. Your shooting is good. Do it again.

I had a father, thank you.

Whoo! God dang it, I'm good.

Sadistic and totally devoid of any reality this is an awful film. Full of anachronisms (a settler's wife with decolletage!), ridiculous characters and improbable action sequences. One sequence was even a direct ripoff from Django. Cartoony and predictable this was a waste of money in its creation and a waste of time in my (almost) viewing. I'm glad I didn't pay to see this in a theater and my husband regrets ordering it from Netflix. The people responsible for green lighting this project should be forced to view it and then be banned from Hollywood. Stick with the original and its terrific cast. RIP Robert Vaughn, the last surviving seven.
