Underrated
21 October 2001 | by (la) – See all my reviews

I can't believe that people give this movie such a bad rating. Of the three sequels to the original SEVEN, this is far and away the best. Of course it isn't as good as the original and it doesn't have Yul Brenner, but if you can overlook that, it's actually quite entertaining. In fact, this movie would have been better on its own had it just been a bunch of guys with no relation to the original. But people will always question why George Kennedy is playing Chris, despite looking (and acting) nothing like him. But Kennedy is one of the reasons that this movie works so well. Easily one of the great actors of his generation, Kennedy so often played villians in westerns (check out Sons of Katie Elder and a couple other John Wayne films). But as the leader with a conscious in this film, he's great.

I found the script to be really good, a little predictable, but entertaining nonetheless. And one of the things that makes this movie work is that there is chemestry among the seven, unlike the second Magnificent Seven, which was a total bore. The characters are well done and well cast, especially James Whitmore, who was extremely likeable here. Another thing about the film that I love, are the names. Everyone has a cool, western name: Levi, Keno, Cassy, Slater. Beautiful.

If you want to see a good western, and base it on its own merits, Guns is a good choice.
