Did You Know?

Trivia:
Although this film revisits the village from the first movie, it was shot in Spain, not Mexico. Among the many reasons were the difficulties that occurred between the American filmmakers and the Mexican crew and government censors during the shooting of the first film.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: Throughout the film, Chris changes from wearing 2 guns to wearing just one at the end.See more »
Quotes:
Vin:I wish I knew for sure.
Chris:Knew what?
Vin:Whether I'm here because Chico is a friend of mine, or if I'm just on the prod for a fight like Frank. Killing can get inside you.
Chris:And you think that's happening to you?
Vin:Why else would I be here? Sure Chico is a friend of mine. But, hell, I don't even know his last name.
Chris:Neither do I.
Vin:Don't it make you wonder?
Chris:No.
Vin:How the hell come, Chris?
Chris:Because in all the years I made my way with a gun, I never once shot a man just to see him fall. If that time ever comes, I'll throw my guns in a water bucket and walk away. So will you.

The rent was due, 9 March 2007
Author: lastliberal from United States

This was really a disappointment after watching The Magnificent Seven. I know sequels are usually disappointing, but this one had nothing going for it compared to the original. The only character returning was Yul Brenner. he looked as if he was going through the motions to collect a check to pay the rent. The outstanding cast that made The Magnificent Seven what it was was not equaled in any measure by the replacements. Even the addition of Steve McQueen couldn't have saved this film. And the bad guy? Give me a break! Eli Wallach was a consummate outlaw and I don't even know the name of the baddie in this film - he is so forgettable.

This film should not have been made. It shames the memory of The Magnificent Seven.
