Trivia

Vasquez repeatedly calls Faraday 'Güero', so much so that Faraday asks what it means but receives no reply. In fact it is a Mexican racial slur meaning 'Whitey' in reference to an Anglo's pale skin. Considering the ethnic make up of the Seven in 1879 the fact that this is the only racial slur directed at any one of the Seven during the entire film is somewhat of an anachronism (the two former Confederates Faraday and Robicheaux and African American former Union man Chisholm would likely have at least some remaining animosity, and a Mountain Man who has taken "300 Comanche scalps" would certainly be an unhelpful presence to the Comanche member of the team and vice versa. As for the Asian, in 1879 every race looked down on them!) however, their mutual respect for each other as fighting men may go some way to explain this lack of racial tension. See more »

Modern approach to a classic.
20 October 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hate to be cliché voting this 7/10 but thought it was appropriate for a film of this nature.

I was sceptical, like I imagine many were, when I first heard they were remaking The Magnificent Seven since the original is such a classic. Being a fan of westerns in particular, I will jump at the chance to see a western in the cinema.

I really don't think this was a bad movie by any stretch of the imagination. It upholds some originality rather than just blindly following the original script and attempts a more modern and socially aware approach. This approach I do not necessarily agree with as it comes across far too forced at times, like they were attempting to recognise as many different races or even 'minorities' as possible.

It was cheesy at times, there is no doubt about this, but classically westerns were styled this way, being melodramatic at times and maybe one too many standoffs with intense close ups of characters staring at each other. In a way I like this though. I thought it paid almost tribute to the classic westerns of the 1950s and 60s. The famous lighting another mans cigar' scene was a pretty neat addition, and instantly reminded me of 'The Good, The Bad & The Ugly'.

The build up was worth it too was an awesome showdown and shootout, lots of well delivered performances and cleverly directed fight scenes. Not a bad film at all but definitely not a masterpiece. Worth your time if you're a fan of the genre.
