The Magnificent Seven Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Spectacular gun battles, epic-sized heroes and an all-star cast that includes Academy Award winners Yul Brynner and James Coburn, together with Steve McQueen, Eli Wallach and Charles Bronson, make The Magnificent Seven a legend among westerns. Spawning three sequels and a successful television series, and featuring Elmer Bernstein's Oscar-nominated score, this stunning remake of The Seven Samurai is "a hard-pounding adventure" (Newsweek) and "an enduringly popular" (Leonard Maltin) cinematic classic. Merciless Calvera (Wallach) and his band of ruthless outlaws are terrorizing a poor Mexican village, and even the bravest lawmen can't stop them. Desperate, the locals hire Chris Adams (Brynner) and six other gunfighters to defend them. With time running out before Calvera's next raid, the heroic seven must prepare the villagers for battle and help them find the courage to take back their town or die trying! Presented in hi-def Blu-ray!

Review: The Magnificent Seven was one of the coolest westerns ever made.  Its been released on DVD, but never on blu-ray!  This is the first chance fans of this epic film get to see it in high-definition!  The cast was soon to be all-star, including Charles Bronson and Steve McQueen.  The action was solid and the plot was fantastic.  There were later sequels, but they never lived up to this one!  If you've never seen this film, but you're into westerns, then this is a must-have.  Fans of the film will be happy with the lack of grain and great color and skin tones in this blu-ray transfer!  Its definately worth an upgrade.

Interest Range: Western
