The Magnificent Seven ain't no Seven Samurai. It ain't no Magnificent Seven of Yul Brenner fame. It's its own movie, a western born in the 21st century. With a diverse cast and its own agenda.

It doesn't make the wild bunch do it for honor. They do it for the money. And for personal reasons. This last fact changes the movie into revenge. No one wins. Even the farmers lose. You the view do as well.

It's a decent action movie, but again, no Seven Samurai.

3 of 5 stars.
