I am not a fan of Hollywood's cheesy resurrection of old classic movies in an age of sleazy trash reality shows polluting minds and the airwaves, but this western was well done despite, once again, a black actor changes the original lead role. Maybe the next Spider-Man should be a Chinese lead actor, Iron Man done by an Arab. Come on guys, stick to the script and this has nothing to do with intolerance. Should we make a movie about Jesus Christ and give it to a Mexican actor, get my drift? How about El Chapo (should be hung from a tree) played by a Jewish actor, makes sense to you?

If you're a person who likes really bad remakes, that should never have been actually produced; this is one of the movies you would watch.

Not generally a Western person, but watched as a recommendation and nice intro to the genre, being a modern remake of a classic. I tend to align very soundly with what I checked up on Rotten Tomatoes on this one: I think they gave this like a 63%. That percentile suggests this is a decent flick, chances are pretty watchable and not terrible, but also not a beauty of a film or a homerun. Seems to me it could have been awesome, but it was a solid bit shy of the mark. But still plenty of fun moments and a decent story. I like the many religious tones with the preacher, Vincent D'Onofrio's big ol' character, etc. too. I think what is also a lasting contribution is just the weight of the film's portrayal of a fairly timeless motif of just our home, or are security, being threatened; the raw emotion of this, how to deal with it, a sense of justice, togetherness, the human spirit, etc. which came together sort of nicely in the end and the "final stand" and battle that are the climax of this Magnificent tale.

A cartoon version of the 1960s film with lots of adolescent violence and CGI. But without the great music

Given that the original was a remake of a Kurosawa film, I'm not sure this needed to be remade again. While the original is remember fondly for its iconic score and great cast (McQueen, Yul Brynner, Bronson, James Coburn), it's actually a bit pokey and uneven. The new version is more action-orientated and the final shoot out is good, if predictable. The one nice thing about it is that it adds some color to what is a notoriously white genre (Discounting the Native characters who are almost always faceless bad guys.). Denzel heads the gang, which also includes an Asian character, a Native American character, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio (my favorite), and Chris Pratt, whose laid back dude vibe doesn't really fit. Directed by Antoine Fuqua, who also did "Training Day" and "The Equalizer" with Denzel.

I enjoyed this film! I'm not a big Western/Cowboy movie fan, but I really thought this was an entertaining movie! It was like the Avengers, but with Cowboys!

I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie. I was expecting it to be dull and it wasn't. I was expecting it to be gory and it wasn't (as gory as it could have been). All the best movies have good villains and this one is no exception. They help the hero rise higher. Worth the watch!

A fun movie. Some of the 7 were more interesting than others and how Sam was able to convince each to join his cause could have been fleshed out. I found the most interesting characters was Ethan Hawke portrayal of a PTSD hero was excellent and the mountain man was cool too.

Good actors acting badly. Good story rewritten so it's really dumb. Badly directed. Stupid props. Such a disappointment considering the original film. Needless to say, I don't recommend it.
