The Magnificent Seven (2016) | Ratings & Reviews

"The Magnificent Seven is an agreeable remake, not bad for an Antoine Fuqua flick, if ultimately an unmemorable movie. Written by Nic Pizzolatto (of True Detective infamy) and Richard Wenk (of The Expendables 2 infamy), this update of the iconic 1960 John Sturges western - itself a redo of Akira Kurosawa’s classic Seven Samurai - is evidently informed by a surface-level “wokeness” that’s attuned to our sociopolitical zeitgeist."

Flicks, Aaron YapFlicks

"Hits all the right buttons but misses the fun of the original."


"Not quite magnificent but certainly Fuqua's best since Training Day and a rare remake that actually delivers. Yee-haw!"

Total FilmTotal Film

"A vehicle for wall-to-wall action, and an unambiguously fond farewell to the Obama years."

Time OutTime Out

"The new movie is as moth-eaten as the serapes strewn through the 1960 film, but there's no denying the appeal of the image of Mr. Washington riding a horse, shooting a Colt and leading a posse of vigilantes to save a mostly white Western town."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"There's a fine line between a slowburn and dull, and this Magnificent Seven frequently finds itself on the wrong side."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"You don't "remake" a film like The Magnificent Seven by simply recreating some of the original's action scenes and adding a couple of new characters. That's just imitation."


"It does, however, earn its spurs with an entertaining ensemble led by Washington, whose black bounty hunter never gets called out because of his race because clearly he's just way too cool."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"Nothing particularly original or fresh has been injected into this competently made, violent but uningratiating remake of the star-studded John Sturges Western, which itself was a redo of Akira Kurosawa's imperishable 1954 classic, Seven Samurai."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Slick but forgettable, Fuqua's suicide squad is a macho posse movie that could use a jab of fun. It's The Magnificent Seven, but the "magnificent" is silent."
