Spectacular gun battles, epic-sized heroes and an all-star cast that includes Academy AwardÂ(r) winners Yul Brynner* and James Coburn**, together with Steve McQueen, Eli Wallach and Charles Bronson, make The Magnificent Seven a legend among westerns. Spawning three sequels and a successful television series, and featuring Elmer Bernstein's OscarÂ(r)-nominated*** score, thisstunning remake of The Seven Samurai is "a hard-pounding adventure" (Newsweek) and "an enduringly popular" (Leonard Maltin) cinematic classic. Merciless Calvera (Wallach) and his band of ruthless outlaws are terrorizing a poor Mexican village, and even the bravest lawmen can't stop them. Desperate, the locals hire Chris Adams (Brynner) and six other gunfighters to defend them. With time running out before Calvera's next raid, the heroic seven must prepare the villagers for battle and help them find the courage to take back their town or die trying!

Compliments to the Director.
I wanted to watch again the old one. It is an amazing movie and a very modern story.
I enjoyed both.
-Poor character development. With so many unique and significant characters, you wish you could learn about all of their back stories. However, it seems like most of the main characters would need their own movies in order to give the viewers a true understanding of who they are. Instead, they provide subtle hints of their history throughout the movie, giving the viewers a general idea of who they are.
-Fast-paced action. Although there are breaks from the action to focus on the storyline, it always picks back up at the right moments and never disappoints.
-Likeable characters. As mentioned, there is a very brief character development for the main characters, but the dialog and action provide just enough for the viewers to appreciate each character,
-Humorous. On top of all of the action, this movie is also a comedy, and it lives up to its genre very well.
It's not going to be an all-time classic, but it is still a very entertaining movie. I would recommend this movie to anybody who enjoys action-comedies.
Not much in the way of character development, cinematography is average at best (which is sad given the beautiful scenery where the film was made), acting is average. It aspires to be a serious, realistic, gritty western, but is unable to get out of its own way and falls back into being a bad spaghetti western (just listen to the sound track).
(spoiler alert): What really sunk the movie was the introduction of the Gatling gun, which was just ludicrous as it was too far from the town to be effective, yet was able to level the town and turn the tide away from "our heroes".
