On the downside, it's an uneven film. Most of the secondary characters lack depth.

Through successive rounds of whitewashing, one of the great works of cinema has been transformed into a bland, brainless multiplex shoot-em-up.

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.

There's nothing on the screen to suggest that this remake of The Magnificent Seven actually needed making.

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.

The blandness of story and lack of intensity with action makes Fuqua's "Magnificent Seven" anything but magnificent.
August 22, 2018
This tired old reboot only cares about getting the next kill shot.

This might be an accurate reflection of where we are now, but it's in no way a level up.

A magnificent mess.

Stranger still, in a film this progressive, this woke, that they talk about wanting their land back, without the faintest acknowledgement that they, in turn, have stolen it from Native Americans.

This new take on The Magnificent Seven boasts another A-list cast, but forsakes characters for bloodless, PG-13 action that entertains without resonating.

There was enough potential for his character to have evolved into something truly magnificent but the chance was let slip by the director. And that, sadly, is by and large true for the whole film itself...

There's a fine line, as Sergio Leone once told me, between the operatic and the absurd, and this Seven runs roughshod over it.
September 21, 2017
This Magnificent Seven seems a bit underdeveloped character wise.
August 16, 2017
In the end, Fuqua has made less a magnificent seven than, at best, a slightly better than average one.
February 22, 2017
It has few standout moments and, in addition, doesn't have anything too deep or thought-provoking to say. Yet, if you simply wish to see a gun-slinging Western with some of your favorite actors, it's a least a passable couple hours at the movies.

The magnificence of the titular septet is barely discernible in this unwarranted update of the 1960 Western that was itself a remake of the 1954 Japanese classic Seven Samurai.
December 30, 2016
The end result is a paint-by-numbers Western that will scratch that itch, but should have done a better job of justifying its existence.
December 14, 2016
As things build toward the long, bloody and by-the-numbers (if ably staged) showdown, it's hard not to mourn for the film this could have been, considering the assemblage of talent.
December 11, 2016
It is not, by and large, a very inspired film, though sometimes it gets there in spurts.
