The Magnificent Seven (2016)

I also wanted to see how the remake of The Magnificent Seven stacked up against the Original classic 1960, old school spaghetti western directed by John Sturges which featured a bunch of hired guns, led by Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen, defending a small Mexican village against marauding bandits.

It begins in 1879, when robber baron Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard) besieges the mining town of Rose Creek and slaughters a group of locals led by Matthew Cullen (Matt Bomer) when they attempt to stand up to him. Matthew’s wife, Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett), and her friend Teddy Q. (Luke Grimes) ride to the nearest town in search of someone who can help them. They meet warrant officer Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington) of Wichita, Kansas. He Recruits a group of gunslingers including gambler Josh Faraday (Chris Pratt), sharpshooter Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), knife-wielding Billy Rocks (Lee Byung-hun), notorious Mexican outlaw Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), skilled tracker Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), and Comanche warrior Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). Arriving in Rose Creek, the seven engage in a gunfight with Bogue’s enforcer McCann (Cam Gigandet) and his men, and drive the corrupt sheriff away with a warning to leave Rose Creek alone.

However Bogue arrives with an army of mercenaries and attacks the city, which has been rigged with multiple bombs and traps. A massive and rather exciting shootout ensues, between Chisolm, Robicheaux, Rocke, McCann, Faraday, Vasquez, Horne, Red Harvest, Bogue and Bogue’s Comanche assassin Denali (Jonathan Joss) during which Faraday pays the ultimate price. meanwhile Chisolm, confronts Bogue Who had raped and murdered his mother and sisters during a raid several years earlier intent on getting revenge.
