Trivia

The name "Buster Crab" is scrawled on the wall of a prison cell. This is an homage to American actor Buster Crabbe, who made many westerns in the 1940s and 1950s. See more »

Goofs

During the gunfight on the hillside, the two brothers randomly fire off rounds, or at least they cock their pistols and pull the trigger each time, and a pistol shot sound is heard. However, the guns don't kick and there is no smoke from the fired cartridges, so they aren't even firing blanks. They are just pulling the trigger on unloaded chambers. See more »

Pretty lame, even for spaghetti western fans
3 May 2010 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Obviously with the title, the producers were trying to suggest that this movie had elements of the classic films "The Magnificent Seven" and "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers". Unfortunately, the movie ends up short, very short.

To begin with, none of the members of the family are made into unique characters. They are just a mindless mob of people shooting and acting alike. In fact, sometimes it's hard during the action scenes to differentiate them from the bad guys! Another big criticism I have with the movie is that it doesn't take long for things to get very confusing. Not understanding what was going on, it was hard to get involved with what happens. Also, the print that currently plays on cable TV is full-frame, when this was shot in widescreen. This makes some scenes even more confusing.

There is a decent musical score by Ennio Morricone, but that's not enough to save the movie. Even if you are a spaghetti western fanatic, like I am, I strongly suggest you skip this movie.
