I love me a good western and The Magnificent Seven (2016) doesn’t disappoint. With a male-dominated cast (that I didn’t notice until I started writing this post) the way the different characters butted up against each other and relationships changed throughout the movie was an interesting dynamic. Currently on Netflix, this movie is worth a watch if you haven’t seen it yet.
The Magnificent Seven
Brought together by a vengeful young widow, seven men from wildly different backgrounds fight to protect her town from the private army of gold-mining tycoon Bartholomew Bogue, the man who killed her husband.
Starring Haley Bennett (The Girl on the Train, The Devil All the Time), Denzel Washington (The Equalizer 2, Safe House), Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Kid), Ethan Hawke (The Good Lord Bird, In a Valley of Violence), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil, Ratched), Lee Byung-hun (The Good, The Bad, The Weird, Mr. Sunshine), Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (Murder on the Orient Express, 6 Underground), and Martin Sensmeier (Westworld, Salem).
This was a rewatch -Yup, I have, as you would expect, watched this film several times. But only because it’s so good. I watched it again because they put it on Netflix -and you need to know it’s on Netflix so you can watch it too if you haven’t seen it yet. The characters are brilliant, particularly Ethen Hawke’s Goodnight Robicheaux and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Jack Horne. Not as gritty as the original, it’s still a wild ride.
