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.
Chris Pratt's character tells a story of a guy falling off a five-story building. At every floor the people hear him say, "So far, so good." This is an homage to Steve McQueen's character on the original The Magnificent Seven (1960) telling the same tale, except it was a ten-story building. See more »
The one time we see Chisolm (Washington) reload his Colt Single Action Army revolver, he flips open the loading gate and spins the cylinder upside down which quickly dumps his empty shells to the ground. Spent shells would not be able to loosely fall out of the cylinder like that due to the pressure of firing the bullet causing the mouth of the cartridge to swell and basically get stuck in the cylinder. He would have needed to use the ejector rod to punch the shell out. However, it's Hollywood, and that looked way cooler than having to eject a single shell at a time. See more »
Sir... I have a proposition. We're decent people being driven from our homes. Slaughtered in cold blood.

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!
