It is tough to remake the classics, even though we deserved a more stellar cast here. The best part of this film is how realistic it is, not everyone is going to survive. We’ve all become accustomed to a happy ending over a real one. The characters are the story, yet they also take away from the actual story. The bad guy was ruthless, which fits the time period, but Magnificent Seven is not going to top my list of favorite westerns.
