A classic that's never been one of my favorite Westerns.
| Original Score: 2/5

Even with some highly fetching Mexican scenery in color, this United Artists release, thrusting Yul Brynner well to the fore, is a pallid, pretentious and overlong reflection of the Japanese original.

What was wonderful in the Kurosawa film -- the recruiting and training of the mercenaries -- is just dead time here.

Sturges' remake of Kurosawa's Seven Samurai is always worth a look, mainly for the performances of McQueen, Bronson, Coburn and Vaughn.

If it's not the greatest Western ever made, it's certainly in the top three. This is the movie that made Steve McQueen a star.

There is a heap of fine acting and some crackling good direction by John Sturges mostly in the early stages, during formation of the central septet.

Overly celebrated, but the gun fights are among the best ever in a Western.

...holds up as a rousing adventure and as a fascinating turning point in the history of movies about the Old West.

An inferior remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 action classic The Seven Samurai, though worth seeing because of the star performances.
