Storyline Heading
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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Western - While sharing a title, time period, and some basic plot elements from the 1960 western of the same name, this is not so much a faithful remake of it than a loose, more modern style action film take on the basic premise. While also still an ensemble film, fans of Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt will have the most to enjoy here, for other familiar actors such as Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, and especially Peter Sarsgaard have much smaller roles. Despite the PG-13 rating, this is still a very violent film, so parental discretion is strongly advised.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average If there's a compelling reason to remake The Magnificent Seven, it can't be found in the 2016 version, a loud, cluttered, and generally disappointing production. This The Magnificent Seven has the dour ending without the high points preceding it. With two better versions of this story readily available, why bother with this mediocre re-telling?

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average Rarely have so many charismatic actors been used in a film that feels quite as soulless as Antoine Fuqua's update of "The Magnificent Seven.” It's one of those projects that should work on paper. The cast is perfectly assembled...

USA Today Full Review
Average ...like a long-fused stick of dynamite: It takes forever to get interesting but does at least unleash an explosive finale. Even with more than two hours of screen time, though, character development doesn't get a seat at the saloon.

NY Post Full Review
Good Denzel Washington makes a belated but splendid debut as a Western hero in Antoine Fuqua's action-packed, multicultural re-imagining of John Sturges' 1960 semi-classic,...
