Storyline

Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in The Magnificent Seven.

Trivia

Jonathan Joss (King of the Hill's John Redcorn for most of its run) plays the silent, golden headband native - most impressively during the Sacramento's "All men have a price." scene. See more »

Goofs

When Faraday tells the townspeople about Robicheaux's history, he says that he had "23 confirmed kills at Antietam." Both men were Confederates, so they would've called it Sharpsburg, not Antietam. See more »

Quotes

Goodnight Robicheaux: What a merry band, we are. Me a Grey, Chisolm a Blue, Billy a mysterious man of the Orient, a drunk Irishman, a Texican, a female and her gentlemen caller. This is not going to end well.
Vasquez: I'm Mexican, cabrón. No such thing as a "Texican."
Goodnight Robicheaux: Try telling that to my granddaddy. He died at the Alamo. New Orleans Greys, long barracks, bayonets. Blood, teeth. Mauled by a horde of teeming brown devils.
Vasquez: My grandfather was one of those devils, you know. Toluca Battalion. Hey, maybe my grandfather killed your ...

Denzel challenges Neeson for the title of World's Oldest Action Figure
2 October 2016 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Don't misunderstand.

Both Liam Neeson and Denzel Washington are in their 60s, both have defied the laws of Physics by starting brand-new careers as Action Heros late in life. and both are charismatic and talented enough to pull it off.

(Neeson with the Taken series plus a few other assorted action roles recently; Denzel with the Equalizer franchise and this strange oater.)

Frankly, I would be happy to buy a ticket buyer for all the action roles they both can dish up. If both these gentlemen want to continue to make these sorts of pictures for the next 20 years, I promise to keep watching.

However, leaving aside the star power of the lead in this production, overall this film is a borderline remake.

The original had a better ensemble cast, better music, and better acting.

This is an "OK" remake (as many other members have opined here) with arguably better pistol-handling skills.

And still a very nice way to spend a rainy afternoon.
