Good Film But Needed to be a Bit Shorter

Guns of the Magnificent Seven (1969)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Third film in the series has a Mexican rebel leader (Fernando Rey) captured and thrown into a sadistic prison where he's being held until he will release information about the group wanting to overthrow the government. One of his followers hires gunman Chris (George Kennedy) who finds six others to come up with a plan to break into the prison. GUNS OF THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN is certainly a major step up from the previous entry in the series but it's somewhat of a disappointment because with a few changes I think the film could have been even better. I'll get the negative stuff out of the way first and I think the biggest problem is that at 105-minutes the film runs way too long as there are way too many scenes that just drag on to the point where you can't help but feel the movie would have been better with some editing. The big showdown is of course going to take place at the end but it just seemed like there was so much talk leading up to it that you wish they would have cut this and just got down to the action quicker. In all seriousness, the dialogue scenes that drag on really don't add anything. Outside of that we're left with a fairly entertaining picture and I especially liked some of the darker violence. While nothing is too graphic, the suggested violence is still pretty strong including a bit early on where a group of followers are murdered. I'm not going to ruin how they're killed but it's a very memorable sequence. Another memorable one happens inside the prison when the guards are trying to get the leader to talk and they've got some of his followers buried in the group up to their necks. Again, I won't ruin what follows but it's extremely well done. The performances are also pretty good here with Kennedy in fine form playing that lovable brute. Fans can debate on whether this "Chris" was supposed to be the same one Brynner played but to me it really doesn't matter. Rey, his second appearance in the series, is also good here as is James Whitmore, Monte Markham, Bernie Casey and Joe Don Baker. The finale is pretty exciting, although I will admit that the plan seemed a tad bit too easy.
