'The Magnificent Seven' ranks as one of Hollywood's finest westerns. It succeeds on many levels. The story is simple but powerful. Seven professional gunfighters agree to help a group of poor, mexican peasants defend themselves against the continual ravages of a wicked band of outlaws.The characters are each unique and well defined. Some are brave and virtuous, some opportunistic, some struggling with personal doubts and some just like a good fight. The cinematography is beautiful. The music score ranks as one of finest, setting the mood for each scene. The cast is packed with big names. Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Horst Bucholz, to name a few. As in all good stories, the villain must be memorable. Eli Wallach is classic as the wily bandit leader. The supporting actors and actresses (many unnamed) all add to the realism. This is a morality play set in a rugged, mexican village. Good versus Evil. From the opening scene where Yul Brynnner and Steve McQueen agree to drive a dead indians' corpse to Boot Hill (despite death threats against them) we know that we're in for a wild and entertaining ride. This is a movie not to be missed. It's a definite 'must have' for your home film collection.

Great, Wonderful,...Magnificent!!! You will Love it! I have seen this movie about a gazillion times and STILL love it!!!!! The Magnificent Seven a remake of the 'Seven Samuri'. But it is not about Samuri. It is about seven 'cowboys' who are hired to rid a village of their ever returning terrorizers,who are led by Calvera(Eli Wallach) The Seven are led by Chris(Yul Brynner) who is joined by Vin(Steve McQueen, what a cutie!), Harry(Brad Dexter), O'Rielly(Charles Bronson, another cutie),Britt(James Coborn), Lee(Robert Vaughn), and Chico (Horst Bucholz). I prefer the dvd edition best but the vhs edition is good too. On the dvd you get to see how they made the movie and other interesting facts about the actors. Really Kool!!! I love the music, the story, and absolutly love the actors. If you haven't seen this movie you are missing out on something great! Go out and buy or rent this movie now!!!!

¿The Magnificent Seven' is based on the Japanese movie, 'Seventh Samari.' It stars Yul Brynner as Chris Adams, a retired gunslinger forced to pick up his pistols to free a small Mexican town from its oppressive regiment of banditos fronted by Calvera (Eli Wallach). The updating and transmutation from the original premise - that of seven desperados out to avenge a ruthless cutthroat's stronghold on a poor community - is, for once in the business of remaking movies totally justified and worthy in its own right. Steve McQueen is Vin, one of the six other liberators. The film explores each man¿s motives for signing onto the mission; Bernardo¿s (Charles Bronson) need to belong to something and someone, Lee¿s (Robert Vaughn) desperate attempt to regain his composure in the face of death, Chico¿s (Horst Buchholz) desire to prove himself as a hero to the men he admires. The climactic showdown also points to a revisionist perspective in Hollywood westerns; a cinematic landscape where the good guys don¿t always finish first and sometimes die trying to make good on their honorable intentions. MGM Home Entertainment gives us a tired, worn print of this classic film with faded colors and a barrage of age related blemishes - all this, while calling the disc a 'Special Edition'. Colors can be rich and nicely balanced at times. However, most of the movie's color scheme has suffered from the natural ravages of time. Blacks are weak. Browns, beiges and light grays all appear to have the same muddy texture. Reds are slightly orange and flesh tones are not very natural. There's a considerable amount of edge enhancement and fine detail shimmering throughout. Chips, scratches, dirt and tears in the original print are evident throughout. The audio is stereo but feebly so with a forward sounding characteristic that is not terribly engaging. The music is generally well represented. Extras include a ¿making-of¿ that falls somewhere short of a full fledged documentary but too long to be considered a featurette. There¿s also a theatrical trailer and an audio commentary. Usually I don¿t critique DVD menus but this one is just plain awful. Attempting to showcase a montage of snippets from the film, the clips presented suffer from excessive edge enhancement and aliasing problems that render them impossible to view.

The Magnificent Seven is without doubt the best western not starring John Wayne (sorry Clint). Great plot, great acting, great cinemetography and great score. The first 20 minutes (like Saving Private Ryan) are the best. But the rest is pretty spectacular also. You'll watch it again and again. And by the way, it is a film that has values and that you can watch with your magnificent seven year old (not too much gore...)

This 1960's remake of Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai" leaves a legacy of inspiration for many associated in the film business. The beautiful cinematography and set designs are unique and unmatched by any other in the Western genre. Director John Sturges assembles a gifted cast, including Yul Brynner, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn and others of Hollywood's greatest. Complete with an Oscar-Nominated original score by Elmer Bernstein, this film is a must-see for all who enjoy the classic Westerns of the 20th century.

The cast of Steve McQueen, Yul Brunner, and James Coburn does not disappoint. Anointed as the pre-Vietnam era Western, it still gives American Western the title of our original artistic heritage, besides, of course, jazz. The villains do not disappoint, either, in this traditional, good guy vs. bad guy western. I just love it. Fighting for the farmers and their America's own! For any red-blooded American at heart! The cast includes some men that are seeking redemption, violence, gold , or just adventure.

The score by Elmer Bernstien is the true star of this otherwise highly entertaining and enjoyable western movie classic. The casting is inspired if not always believable (I can never quite buy Yul Brenner as a gunslinger) but Steve McQueen, Eli Wallach, Charles Bronson, James Colburn and the supporting cast are all superb. The story is simple, well told and exciting. Each member of the cast, who does not survive to the end, has his own little death scene interupting a thrilling closing battle between our heroic hired guns and the mexican bandits led by Eli Wallach, and Mr. Brenners ending lines are just a bit too sappy. But I am being far too negative, this is a movie to sit back, watch and enjoy, and please pay attention to the score.

I loved this movie from the start. It has all of the action and cowboys that you would hope for in a movie. Steve McQueen is my all time favorite actor and to have him dressed in chaps is no longer just a dream, but also a reality. The thing I found confusing with this picture was exactly where the magnificent seven presents itself. I watched this film 3 times in the hopes that the magnificent seven would belong to Steve McQueen, but maybe there is a different version that I need to watch. I was also curious as to why seven is so magnificent, I've had way bigger and must say that a magnificent 9 or 11 would be much more appropriate. My partner thinks that we may have gotten hold of the G rated version, because to have this many cowboys not exposing anything magnificent must have been a fluke. All in all I would have to say that this movie is superbly acted and includes a cast that any film buff should have in their collection.
