Living up to expectations is hard, this movie was the sequel to John Sturges´ classic The Magnificent Seven, it stars the three living part of the original posse; Chris ( Yul Brynner ), Vin ( newly appointed Robert Fuller to original Steve McQueen ), Chico ( new Julian Mateos to original Horst Bucholz ).
Although the story is very similar to the original ( seven guys fighting off a Mexican forajido ) the pacing is awful in comparison. As a stand-alone this movie would have been a decent one, but living in the shadow of its predecessor is devastating. Maybe this isn't fair but the hype of the first one was still buzzing and this sequel was but a poor copy of the original...
