Seven gun men from the old west must work together to protect a helpless village from being taken by a group of thieves.
Good for one-time viewing purposes as its noisy environment is not enough to make a mark but is indeed a watchable old west style action piece by Fuqua and notably the likes of Denzel Washington and the crew being these badass cowboys.
The dawn of the story seems to be so promising with Peter Sarsgaard’s terrifying presence but it all got thrown out into a mash of bullet waste. Don’t get me wrong, the climactic battle is awesome and well organized however its not that sufficient enough to stick in our minds and it ends up being forgotten minutes after you see it.
I’m actually looking forward to see a bloody duel between the Red Harvest and the other native but the bout turned out to be a comedy with a slash of cliched line.
The end accolades even brought some awkwardness in the ending which tried to insinuate the magnificence of the seven when nothing appears to be magnificent but nevertheless it is indeed an enjoyable and worth the time entertainment.
