Chico, one of the remaining members of The Magnificent Seven, has set down roots in the village that they had defended in the first film. One day, the village is raided by fifty gunmen under the employ of rancher Lorca. Lorca's bandits abduct all of the village's men to be used as slave labor, leaving the women and children behind. Chris, the former leader of the Seven, is sought out by Chico's wife Petra for help, and thus assembles a new Seven to come to the village's rescue once again.Written by

Living up to expectations is hard, this movie was the sequel to John Sturges´ classic The Magnificent Seven, it stars the three living part of the original posse; Chris ( Yul Brynner ), Vin ( newly appointed Robert Fuller to original Steve McQueen ), Chico ( new Julian Mateos to original Horst Bucholz ).
Although the story is very similar to the original ( seven guys fighting off a Mexican forajido ) the pacing is awful in comparison. As a stand-alone this movie would have been a decent one, but living in the shadow of its predecessor is devastating. Maybe this isn't fair but the hype of the first one was still buzzing and this sequel was but a poor copy of the original...
