Is ‘The Magnificent 7’ really that magnificent? I guess I’ll just have to wait for the weekend in order to find out. But I must confess after watching the trailer the movie looks rather appealing, so I have high hopes for the movie. At the same time I’m having mixed feelings though, why? Because of the reviews online, some describe the movie as an ‘OK’ movie but on the other hand they’re also reviews that describe the movie ‘an immensely entertaining and heartfelt action-western experience’.
Interesting fact: The movie is the remake of the 1960 movie with the same name which was also a remake of the Japanese movie ‘Seven Samurai’.
The movie is about seven gun men in the old west who come together to help a poor village against savage thieves. The movie has a few big names on it like Denzel Washington (Malcolm X, Training Day, and The Equalizer), Chris Pratt (Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy), Ethan Hawke (Training Day, Boyhood) and many more.
I hope Denzel Washington is able to follow up on his breathtaking performance from the movie ‘The Equalizer’ and Chris Pratt also delivers an amazing performance like the one in ‘Jurassic World’.
