The Hollywood remake machine has churned out another adaptation of a classic film with The Magnificent Seven. This one stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and Ethan Hawke, and is also directed by the acclaimed Antoine Fuqua, so is that enough to make it magnificent? Vic saddles up for a review.
While I agree it doesn’t really break any new ground and feels like homage at times, I do think it was a pretty good film overall. The story, acting, characterization are all pretty good (the characterization is a bit broad but it works well enough to sell the story).
