Critic Reviews for Seven Men From Now
Classic Western that is one of the high water marks of the American cinema.
It deserves to be viewed, as one of the greatest Westerns -- possibly one of the greatest films -- ever made.
gets everything right and we indeed feel this movie in our stomachs and hearts
The effect is not one of (pre) post-modern nudging, but a questioning of the conventions through the director's humanizing gaze.
Audience Reviews for Seven Men From Now
He was fixing to cut you down. An aging former sheriff has a significant guilt streak for a string of events in his former town that led to the death of his wife. He is now tracking down the men responsible and is on his way to find them when he comes across some settlers heading the same direction. He agrees to ride with them to keep them safe. As they discover more and more of his story, they try to talk him into being at peace with himself first. Will they convince the sheriff he's a good man either way, whether he gets revenge or not? "Sure is a wild country. I like wild things." Budd Boetticher, director of The Tall T, Ride Lonesome, Comanche Station, A Time for Dying, Decision at Sundown, The Killer is Loose, and City Beneath the Sea, delivers Seven Men from Now. The storyline for this picture is interesting and has a classic western feel to it. The acting is very good and the cast includes Randolph Scott, Gail Russell, Lee Marvin, and Don Barry. "They ever catch up to the fellas that done it?" I came across this a long time ago via Fios recommendations and decided to give it a viewing finally. This is a classic western with interesting characters and well portrayed character development. I really enjoyed how this was put together. I recommend this to fans of the western genre. "I'd feel a whole lot better if you rode along with us." Grade: B-/B
How can you not love Randolph Scott and Lee Marvin???
In "Seven Men from Now," Ben Stride(Randolph Scott) is on the hunt for seven men who robbed a Wells Fargo office in Silver Springs. He has already dispatched two of them by the time he comes across John(Walter Reed) and Annie Greer(Gail Russell) who are stuck in the mud on their way to California. Their voyage has not exactly gone as planned as he has had to take on odd jobs from time to time to earn money but their fortunes look up when Stride not only helps them get out of their predicament but also agrees to ride with them. His protection might come in handy as there are starving Indians on the warpath but not when encountering Masters(Lee Marvin) and Clete(Donald Barry) who are interested in the outlaws for a less charitable reason. "Seven Men from Now" is a very entertaining western that is a notch and a half above the usual fare due to imaginative camerawork, a scene stealing performance from Lee Marvin of barely controlled menace, how well information is dispensed and especially character development. Notice where the characters start out compared to where they finish. At first, Masters looks down on John Greer while staring lustily at his wife. And it would be interesting to think what Stride's path would be if he had not encountered the Greers.
