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.

The Magnificent Trash
30 March 2021 | by QueenoftheGoonsSee all my reviews

No stars. This movie like freaking seriously? You're gonna get D'Onofrio or whatever his name is that killed Ermey from full metal and he replaces Steve McQueen? No. Denzel Washington replaces Yul Brynner? Seriously? No. Stars of today like young punk Ethan Hawke will replace Robert Vaughn or Brad Dexter or James Coburn or Bronson? No. There's no replacing those old goons. No. Dad was alive when this was on a commercial on TV. He agreed with me, course i always agreed with Dad on my goons. My goons had more class and sophistication than the punks walking around today. Denzel Washington to replace Yul Brynner? Never.
