Editorial Reviews

Academy Awardr Winner Yul Brynner stars in the landmark Western that launched the film careers of Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and James Coburn. Tired of being ravaged by an army of marauding bandits, the residents of a small Mexican village seek help from seven American gunfighters. The only problem? It's seven against 50! Also featuring Eli Wallach and Robert Vaughn, and set against Elmer Bernstein's Oscarr-Nominated score.

5.0 out of 5 stars KUROSAWA IN CHAPS October 3, 2002
Format:DVD
Yul Brynner, back in the late 1950's, wanted to direct an American version of the SEVEN SAMURAI, as an western. So he bought up the movie rights. He wanted to cast Anthony Quinn in the lead, as Chris. Brynner had been directed by Quinn in the remake of THE BUCCANEER. Quinn would have been great as Chris, the leader of the Seven; and what a different film it would have been. But, alas, Brynner himself took the part, and put his own stamp of individuality on it. He walked like a cross between a panther and a ballet dancer; light on the balls of his feet. Ironically, as an actor, he was slow on the draw, and not used to Westerns. But artistically, this was never apparent in the finished film.
Many of the Seven's actors had seen the Kurosawa film, and they were very excited about transferring it to the American West. Eli Wallach, as Calvera, in just a few short scenes, found both the humor and the cruelty in the bandit chieftan. His accent and speech pattern were fairly authentic; more so certainly than the young German actor, Horst Buchholz, endeavoring to find a southwestern/Texan/Mexican drawl. Director, John Sturges, had great hopes for Horst; the camera loved him. But it was the trio of studs, Steve McQueen as Vin, Charles Bronson as O'Reilly, and James Coburn as Britt, that dominated the frame.
Steve McQueen, wearing skin-tight leather stovepipe chaps, spent a lot of time finding ways to upstage Yul Brynner. There was a rumor that he would have preferred playing Chico, the Buchholz character. McQueen's manic physical performance, lightning fast with a pistol and a quip, seemed to work well for him, and it gave him more than his share of focus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strap on your six-shooter! August 8, 2001
Format:DVD
MGM has just released the DVD of "The Magnificent Seven", perhaps the very last of an epoch of classic westerns. Poignant and sad, yet thrilling and action-filled, this cinema classic became a model for 100 action flicks to come. It's an early peek at the emerging movie anti-hero of the 60's and the 70's. An embattled farming village in Northern Mexico hires an unemployed gunslinger from Dodge City. Chris, played by Yul Brynner, recruits six more guns and takes a bloody stand against forty invading banditos. The film opened in 1960 to mild reviews. It was sent off to Europe, where it exploded with positive response. "The Seven" returned to the U.S. to wide acclaim, and as co-star James Coburn says in the documentary, "It's been playing ever since..." John Sturges filmed "Bad Day at Black Rock", "Gunfight at the OK Corral", and "The Great Escape", but history confirms that the meticulous out-door director achieved his artistic peak with this star-studded spectacle, featuring Elmer Bernstein's now classic theme. The film was followed by 3 sequels and a TV show that ran for 2 years. The DVD sound dialogue is a bit muted. The anamorphic 16:9 picture is perhaps the clearest ever, though you'll see some grain fallout during the lap dissolves. An audio commentary track with producer Walter Mirisch and several actors comes with 2 trailers and photos from the actual shoot and cast party. The real jewel of this new DVD is a brand new 46-minute documentary featuring interviews with all the major surviving stars, except Charles Bronson, who just turned 80. Charles Coburn, Eli Wallach, and Robert Vaughn re-live the adventures of filming this epic on location in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Read more ›

Format:VHS Tape
In my opinion, The Magnificent Seven is among the best movies of all time. It is made in the classic Western style, but perhaps due to the adaptation from the Seven Samaurai, it has a lot of the elements of modern movie characters: morally ambiguous anti-heroes who face a personal crossroads but ultimately choose the right path.
This movie adds new angles to the conventional Western plot. A group of 40 bandits led by a robust but ruthless leader named Calvera (Eli Wallach)continously raids a poor farming village for food and other provisions. A group of villagers go north of the border to enlist hired guns to protect them. Eventually, a cool gunslinger by the name of Chris (Yul Brynner) organizes a team of seven able mercenaries to defend the village for a meager fee. The group works well together and inspires the villagers to join the fight to drive Calvera out. After some success, the group suffers some adversity against considerable odds. In the end, both the visitors and the villagers learn about the price -- and payoff -- of resisting injustice.
This movie is truly driven by its great characters. Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen, who plays Brynner's de facto lieutenant Vin, could have likely done this movie by themselves. Their chemistry reminds me of Newman and Redford in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, but with a drier humor. I would have loved to have seen them in more movies together.
I liked all of the Seven, but two others really stood out. Charles Bronson was impressive as the hard-edged O'Reilly, and played the role with a sense of humor and warmth without losing his stoic demeanor.
