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.

As things build toward the long, bloody and by-the-numbers (if ably staged) showdown, it's hard not to mourn for the film this could have been, considering the assemblage of talent.

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.

In the end, Fuqua has made less a magnificent seven than, at best, a slightly better than average one.

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.

Abby Olcese

Though it's an unremarkable action movie in many respects, the film has an interesting eye for symbolism that elevates it above whatever lack of freshness it may suffer from (including a lackluster script).

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.

Amy Nicholson

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

Ernesto Zelaya

Isn't very different from others of its kind, but manages to entertain without complications with a typical western story. [Full review in Spanish]

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

An amusingly average take on the western genre. Everything about this movie is simply mediocre.

So surely everyone knows this is a modern remake of the old 1960's classic western, which itself was a remake of the old 1954 Japanese classic 'The… 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
