By now 'The Magnificent seven' movie is totally irrelevant to the first. Lee Van Cleef hardly fits the original Chris's role. However, like the 3rd one with George Kennedy if you look at it like another western, it is watchable. If you didn't like 'The Return of the Seven' or 'Guns of The Magnificent Seven' I would suggest you don't bother. You will once again be disappointed. This movie is equally as good as its sequels. The question is which main actor do you prefer? Yul Brynner, George Kennedy or Lee Van Cleef? I like them all but I prefer Yul the most. The music in this one sounds slightly different than the original because they used some different instruments too. Unless you are interested in another sequel, like Lee Van Cleef or just want to watch a western, please do not bother. I like Lee Can Cleef and the series so I enjoyed it.
By the way, did anyone notice that the village The Magnificent Seven defend is the same set used in 'An Invitation To A Gunfighter' starring Yul Brynner? Yul and Lee seem to steel each others things including the roles in the 'Sabata' trilogy and 'The magnificent Seven'.
