Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns. As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
This was Antoine Fuqua's first feature film to be rated PG-13. His previous ones had been rated MA and R. See more »
In the long shot of Goodnight Robicheaux training the village men how to shoot a rifle, he gets upset at all of them. In that scene, Josh Faraday, who is seen leaning up against a fence along with Chisolm, is seen bringing his right arm over to the left, presumably to be reaching for something on his left side. In that instant, the camera does a close up of Faraday, and at that point Faraday has his back up against the fence again, and is again bringing his right arm over to the left and reaching for a rifle, which he then hands over to Robicheaux.

Hollywood, you do not take a classic film and do a lackluster job and make it worst. You try to transcend. It's lazy Hollywood all over again. The script makes no attempt to develop any of the characters and what we get is a piece of hollow action flick with no substance to it. Hollywood thinks we are all sheep and simply throw away our hard earned money to them. They insult our intelligence over and over again with remakes of great classics promising to be better than the original. Once in a blue moon they succeed but not this time! Don't waste your money. Wait for it to go on DVD or watch it free if you can. Better yet, watch the classic Magnificent 7 with Yul Brynner and you will see how much better that one is to the remake. They don't call it a classic for nothing!
