Consensus: The Magnificent Seven never really lives up to the superlative in its title -- or the classics from which it draws inspiration -- but remains a moderately diverting action thriller on its own merits.

The Magnificent Seven is an awkward milestone in Hollywood's ongoing and urgent conversation about representation.

If body count is what you go to Westerns for, by all means drift into this one's corral.

The big problem with the film is that it has no real reason to exist...The characters are lifeless, the pace is slow, the villain is a wimp.

The most rousing moment in The Magnificent Seven comes after the action has already concluded, when the credits roll to the emphatic accompaniment of Elmer Bernstein's iconic 1960 score.

Fuqua's made two clean piles separating good and evil, and in doing so, he's thrown away the film's point.

Not nearly as magnificent as the originals it is based on, this Denzel Washington western vehicle still has its moments even if there is too much gunplay and not enough character development.

Traces of real history are hard to spot in Fuqua's Western, but there isn't much evidence of a real Western, either. You sense that an entire genre, far from being revitalized, is being plundered for handy tips.

"Magnificent" is pushing it, but "The Magnificent Seven" - the latest spin on the classic outlaw tale - comes in guns blazing, sweeps the town and gets the job done.

As Gene Wilder tributes go, it's not bad.

If there is an issue I had with this remake is that these mercenaries become heroes fighting for justice so fast, but all that is compensated by how thrilling… More

Obviously the new Magnificent Seven remake was never going to be as good a Western as the 1960 original, or as good an action movie as its source material,… More

Most remakes these days seem to be made for one reason, and one reason alone. An object that is released and expected to make tons of cash, just based on name… More

The charismatic ensemble is the most compelling argument to see The Magnificent Seven. Every film has the right to be judged on its own merits, but it's… More

An amusingly average take on the western genre. Everything about this movie is simply mediocre.
Paul Fuchs
It's been a while since I've seen one of these: a movie that's a hell of a fun time to watch that's also a movie that isn't half-bad.… More
