Magnificent 7

on 9-25-2016 in Action Heroes, Western


This is a classic western with bad guys, heroic & skilled good guys, an Indian, a Mexican, even an Asian. What it is
missing is a plot with heart. Like Reverant, it is based in an elaborate revenge story with a lot of shootem ups, destruction
and ruthless death. It is filmed in the beautiful back country of New Mexico and I mean stunning beauty. I walked away
both sad and entertained. Yes, a true western with high attention to the details of living at that time. For that I give high
aesthetic marks. The story line left me a bit hollow feeling that all of this death and destruction could have hit a bit higher,
aspirational note. Them again, thems were the times, I guess and this be the review, as I seen it

Before 9.5 – After 8.5
