'The Magnificent Seven' Movie Review: Time For Hollywood’s 'Sholay' With Merciless Violence!
Star Cast: Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Ruflo, Martin Senmeier, Peter Sarsgaard and Haley Bennett

Director: Antoine Fuqua

Producer: Roger Birnbaum and Todd Black

Claps For: Performances, Cinematography and Background Score

Slaps For: Fails to be a compelling drama

What’s New: Nothing

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Plot: 1870. The greedy industrialist Bartholomew Bogue seizes control of the Old West town of Rose Creek in order to mine for gold. After Bogue kills her husband and a few other villagers who oppose him, Emma Cullen and other desperate residents turn to bounty hunter Sam Chisolm for help. What follows next is how Chisolm recruits six other excellent gunslingers to accomplish this task and how ‘The Magnificent Seven’ save Rose Creek from the hands of Bogue and his men.

Performances: Chris Pratt is at his usual best mouthing cheesy dialogues while throwing around his charm. Denzel Washington has done a fabulous job. Ethan Hawke is the only actor who gets a complex character to play; and needles to say-he nails it!

Rest all lend a good support. Peter Sarsgaard is impressive as the antagonist!

The characterizations at the script level are so poor that it doesn’t allow any character to stand out.

About The Movie: Technically speaking, Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the 1960’s classic is brilliant and in fact, much better than the previous one. Right from moving at its own pleasant pace coupled with fantastic cinematography and apt editing- this one’s a complete delight to watch.

Fuqua makes sure that he brings back the west America of the 1870’s back on the big screen with style and grace, without going overboard at any point. The merciless action sequences are well-choreographed and make this flick worth every penny.

However, the movie fails to be a compelling drama. Neither do you feel anything for any of the characters (maybe you would, but that’s only because of the actor who is playing that character); nor does it properly show how and why the men start feeling compassionate towards the villagers and decide to fight for them till their last breath! Basically, the movie only deals with the surface of the story, and never tries to go down to the depth and explore the unchartered territories and showcase something unique.

And for the Bollywood movie buffs out there, this might come across as the Hollywood version of the Amitabh Bachchan starrer ‘Sholay’ since both the movies share a similar storyline!

Combo-On-Offer: Action +Drama

Verdict: We give ‘The Magnificent Seven’ CLAPS for being a visually awesome remake along with wonderful performances and merciless action sequences!
