Over all, The Magnificent Seven is everything it was required to be. I'd say it's exactly as good as the prior incarnation, and takes enough liberties with the details to merit its own existence.

The Magnificent Seven is exactly that. If you're looking for a fun time out at the movies, you'll get that. I'm just not sure you'll remember much afterward.

Ultimately, it's the reinvigorated Denzel Washington that makes this worthwhile, if not essential, viewing.

On the downside, it's an uneven film. Most of the secondary characters lack depth.
September 25, 2019
The Magnificent Seven is an entertaining film with a mix of action, drama, and comedy.
September 16, 2019
Through successive rounds of whitewashing, one of the great works of cinema has been transformed into a bland, brainless multiplex shoot-em-up.
August 26, 2019
Diverting action set-pieces with a mostly great cast with not nearly enough to do collectively delivers a fairly watchable rainy day outing.

The Magnificent Seven barely lives up to the 1960 film, let alone The Seven Samurai before it. But it remains an innocuous way to kill two hours, relishing in the charm of its performers and the adoration of western tropes and trappings.

By jettisoning the nihilism that permeated its predecessors, Mag 7 basically reduced itself to a rote modern Western. That's fine for the most part, so long as no one pairs this by-the-books crowd pleaser with either of its ancestors.

This new take won't be for everyone but I found there was entertainment to be had.
February 19, 2019
It's an orgy of beautifully choreographed death and destruction -- but not without humour.
February 14, 2019
The reality is that while some of the subtlety of the original is lost, the bombastic nature of the story and of the characters goes a long way toward creating an engaging and extremely watchable cinematic energy.
February 2, 2019
As an action movie, it hits all the quotas. It features booms, bullets and breasts. Just don't expect much more than that.

The Magnificent Seven sticks to the cliches of the genre and doesn't disappoint. [Full Review in Spanish]

May not be magnificent, but it is still pretty fun.

...at least deserves to be mentioned in the same paragraph as the original, if not the same breath.
November 5, 2018
There's nothing on the screen to suggest that this remake of The Magnificent Seven actually needed making.
November 4, 2018
The main comparative takeaway I can give is that neither one is precisely as good as Seven Samurai, but you already knew that.
November 1, 2018
If you ever wanted to see a big budget remake of Blazing Saddles played entirely with a straight face, The Magnificent Seven is the movie for you.
November 1, 2018
It captures the spirit of the original whilst not being overly reverent to it and mostly does its own thing, which is exactly what a great remake should do.
