Product Description

The Magnificent Seven ride again in this "fast-moving follow-up" (Variety) to one of the greatest Western sagas in film history. Academy AwardÂ(r) winner* George Kennedy (Cool Hand Luke) and James Whitmore (The Shawshank Redemption) take the reins for a bold, sweeping adventure that delivers nonstop excitement! When notorious desperado Chris Adams (Kennedy) is offered a huge reward to free a young Mexican revolutionary from prison, he must first assemble a cutthroat team of frontier warriors. Together, these daring gunslingers embark on the adventure of their livesand discover a cause worth more than a fortune in gold.

Amazon.com

A capable cast led by George Kennedy helps make this third-go round for the Magnificent Seven franchise a worthwhile adventure for Western fans. Kennedy is a more-than-capable replacement for Yul Brynner as Chris, who must round up a new Seven to help rescue a revolutionary leader (Fernando Rey) held captive by a sadistic military leader (Michael Ansara, adding another notch to his long list of villains). Comparisons to the original Magnificent Seven are inevitable, and while Guns doesn't match up in terms of scope or quality of writing, the solid cast--which includes James Whitmore, Joe Don Baker, and Bernie Casey as members of the new Seven--overcomes any limitations by delivering energetic performances; the Spanish locations and veteran TV director Paul Wendkos's nods to spaghetti Western conventions are also a plus. --Paul Gaita

Customer Reviews

Go ahead and hang the producer too.
L. Phillips
This 1969 release is the second and, by far, the best of the three sequels to THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (1960).
Michael B. Druxman
There is a lot of action, the story features a great cast...I loved this movie!

This third film in the Magnificent Seven series is a very worthy sequel to the previous two movies. The story involves a new group of seven who join together to free a Mexican revolutionary from a prison called the Cave of the Rats. The movie is entertaining throughout as the group is organized and then their efforts in the prison break. Many scenes show the influence of spaghetti westerns whether it be close-ups or camera angles during shoot-outs. Either way, this is still a very good movie.
George Kennedy replaces Yul Brynner as Chris, the leader of the Magnificent Seven. Joining him are James Whitmore in a very good supporting role, Monte Markham as Keno(who seems to be a replacement for Steve McQueen's Vin), Reni Santoni, and Joe Don Baker as the one-armed gunman. This movie tends to focus on the beliefs of the Seven as they prepare for battle and the friendships between them. Also joining the cast is Frank Silvera, Fernando Rey, and Michael Ansara as the sinister Colonel Diego. Kennedy is excellent as the new Chris with the other six also being worthwhile replacements. Another star of the movie has to be Elmer Bernstein's rousing score that almost everyone around the world has heard. This is an entertaining sequel that isn't as good as the first one, but probably more on the level of the second sequel. VHS is of decent quality, but this one deserves to be on DVD.

To some this was an inferior sequel to the original MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, but it is actually a splendid follow-up with a sensational cast, thus making the characters more believable, and in a way, giving them more of a personality.
The noted "seven" are as follows, and as stated from the advertising compaign from the original theatrical trailer, "They Are Not Aiming to Please!". George Kennedy replaces Yul Brynner as Chris Adams, making him a more pleasant character who is one to assist his comrades in need. One would almost expect a hard-headed character in the Lone Ranger tradition who is merely out for a bounty. Monte Markham is Keno, Chris' main partner of the piece and fleeing from the Law had it not been more Chris' help. James Whitmore is Levi Morgan, the knife-wielding family man. Bernie Casey is Cassie, dynamite expert and one unable to make decent profits through it. Joe Don Baker is Slater, almost literally refrained to the use of one arm and a Colt 45 weapon his trademark. Scott Thomas is P.J., rope and rifle his weapons of choice. Reni Santoni is Max, the young Mexican who heists[some] of Frank Silvera's dollars to help Chris in the manner.
Enter Michael Ansara as Colonel Diego. A truly sensational actor who made a niche for himself portraying Indians or evil mercenaries. Thus he makes Colonel Diego a nasty character who takes great enjoyment out of watching his slaves suffer torture. Whether it's being whipped until they beg to die, stuck with their heads in the sand while horses trample over them, or leaving them out to dry in the sunlight, he is thoroughly relishing it. He is the leader of the band of marauders, and all throughout makes the character intimidating, and at the same time, believable in the sense that he plays him with such conviction.

Format: DVD
After the very disappointing sequel to The Magnificent Seven, called Return of . . . , I kind of hoped they were going to end the series. With McQueen, Sturges, and the original screenwriters gone, the film just didn't work. The film was sadly filled with one western cliche after another and annoying platitudes. Then Guns of the Magnificent Seven comes out and I reluctantly go see it with a friend. I loved this film! Ten minutes into the movie and you stop worrying about how little George Kennedy resembles Yul Bryner. He fills the role of Chris as though he'd created him. Witness a great scene where Kennedy first meets Monte Markham's character, Keno, and in fact ends up saving him from being hanged as a horse thief using a humorously ingenious ploy. Since both Keno and one of his pursuers claim to be the horse's owner, they must come up with a way to prove it one way or another. Kennedy says drolly (pointing his cigar) "let's ask the horse." What follows is quite humorous and serves to introduce Seven fans to the easy chemistry between Kennedy and Markham from the get-go. Markham is one of those guys who was always good in films but never caught on like say, McQueen or Coburn, even though he bears a slight resemblance and demeanor to both. He even has that uncanny ability to deliver very short lines of dialog with either humor or poignancy.

Anyway, the script is quite good and each member of the Seven is richly drawn, albeit quickly, through striking visual introductions and terse, natural dialog. You get an explosives expert, a one-armed Confederate sharp-shooter, a family man forced to join to support his family (the always excellent James Whitmore), a horse thief and presumed outlaw, a tuberculor gunfighter, an again one of the villagers who's ready to take up the fight.

Although it's neither as classic as John Sturges' "The Magnificent Seven" (1960) nor as striking as Burt Kennedy's "Return of the Seven" (1966), director Paul Wendkos' "Guns of the Magnificent Seven" qualifies as a solidly-made, beautifully-lensed horse opera that takes our heroes south of the border again. However, this time the seven are fighting with the peasants in a greater cause to topple a draconian political regime. "Cool Hand Luke" Oscar winner George Kennedy steps into Yul Brynner's boots as Chris who heads-up the septet in all four theatrical features. Mind you, Kennedy's a fine dramatic actor, but he looks miscast. He looks like he had a tough time getting around on-screen. His dialogue deliveries are letter-perfect and he looks rugged enough, but he lacks the charisma of a Saturday Matinée hero. He fared a lot better as the villain in "The Sons of Katie Elder." Meanwhile, this "Seven" differs in several respects from the first two. First, the end of the frontier and the decline of the gunfighter as a theme is never mentioned in Wendkos' "Seven." In "The Magnificent Seven," Chris tells Vin that they lost and the farmers won, while in "Return of the Seven," Chris refers to himself as 'damned.' Second, the heroes don't take time out to bitch about the tragic life of a gunfighter. They don't dissuade young Max from leading his people into the hills to continue the revolutionary struggle. Third, George Kennedy's Chris isn't as dark or as remorseful as Yul Brynner's Chris. Fourth, the inventive Herman Hoffman screenplay emphasizes elements usually found in the Spaghetti westerns of the day. This time around Chris and company dynamite a Mexican political prison and liberate a crusading leader of the revolution.Read more ›
