The Magnificent Seven

The Magnificent Seven

Premise: A group of seven outlaws band together to help a small town fight against a corrupt businessman who seeks to take all their gold.  

Review: The movie was really well cast and the plot simple. Denzel and the rest of the magnificent seven did phenomenal jobs at the band of outlaws. In particular, the performances by Ethan Hawke suffering from PTSD, Chris Pratt as the comic relief and Vincent D'Onofrio as the wise old coot were standouts.  The twenty minute scene of gunfights and bombs was choreographed well. The villian played by Peter Sarsgaard was a little overdone. 

Ratings: Two Glasses of Wine 

Director: Antoine Fuqua
