It’s a classic western, but Magnificent Seven pales in comparison to the film that inspired it, Seven Samauri. It’s a veneer riding on top of the emotional depth, humanity, and visceral impact of the original. And of course it succumbs to a Hollywood happy love story ending. However, on its own Magnificent Seven is entertaining and well-made, and treats native Mexicans with dignity.
