Product Description

Amazon.ca

Akira Kurosawa's rousing Seven Samurai was a natural for an American remake--after all, the codes and conventions of ancient Japan and the Wild West (at least the mythical movie West) are not so very far apart. Thus The Magnificent Seven effortlessly turns samurai into cowboys (the same trick worked more than once: Kurosawa's Yojimbo became Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars). The beleaguered denizens of a Mexican village, weary of attacks by banditos, hire seven gunslingers to repel the invaders once and for all. The gunmen are cool and capable, with most of the actors playing them just on the cusp of '60s stardom: Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn. The man who brings these warriors together is Yul Brynner, the baddest bald man in the West. There's nothing especially stylish about the approach of veteran director John Sturges (The Great Escape), but the storytelling is clear and strong, and the charisma of the young guns fairly flies off the screen. If that isn't enough to awaken the 12-year-old kid inside anyone, the unforgettable Elmer Bernstein music will do it: bum-bum-ba-bum, bum-ba-bum-ba-bum.... Followed by three inferior sequels, Return of the Seven, Guns of the Magnificent Seven, and The Magnificent Seven Ride! --Robert Horton

Product Description

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, thisstunning 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! *1956: Actor, The King and I **1998: Supporting Actor, Affliction ***1960

3.0 out of 5 stars The Magnificent Seven a classic now on DVD April 1 2004
By Chris
Format:VHS Tape
on Akira Kurosawa "The Seven Samurai"
the "Magnificent Seven" a Mirish production and
released through United Artists and Director
by Oscar nominated John Sturges is one
of the best American Westerns ever made.
It stars Yul Brenner and Steve McQueen, Charles
Bronson, James Coburn and Robert Vaughn as
a couple of hired gunslingers asked to help
a couple of Mexican farmers get their village
back from the control of an evil and bloodthirsty
bandit named Calvera. (Eli Wallach).
The movie is just brilliant. It starts of, telling
us the story of how the village is terrorized by
this evil bandit, and from their it just the
great exploits of the 7 gunslingers who are brought
together to fight for the justice of the
Mexican people.
Yul Brenner, and Steve McQueen play Chris and Vin, a couple of honorable but tough gunmen who don't
take any crap from anyone.
Their first intro in the movie is great.
They are riding their horse carriage through
a western town full of goons that want to kill
the.
As they ride across this town, they from all angles
kill the bad guys who try to get them from
windows, horses and other places.
Eventually their great exploits get the exploits
of the Mexican farmers.
The Mexican farmers tell their tale of the bandits
who are destroying their village and leaving their
families hungry.
So Chris goes on his quest to gather more
skilled gunslingers to get these bandits.
This other great gunslingers consists of Charles Bronson and Robert Vaughn.
What I love about this movie, besides the great
musical score is that their is a story about all
the gunslingers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Timeless Classic, part of Western History... Feb. 13 2002
Format:DVD
The Movie: The Magnificent Seven is truly the most timeless of any Western ever made. I won't go into too much detail about the film's plot, except to say that it was a unique work amoung westerns, and very entertaining. Not only did this movie make its mark on other filmmakers at the time, but it collected and cataloged many standard movie items you see in movies made 20 years before AND after it. You got the innocence and clarity of older westerns - the perfectly clean costumes and sweeping music, and that obvious contrast between outdoor and stage shots. Action scenes were quick and unfocused (typical western stuff), and we are treated with that strange Hollywood way of shooting guns, where the actors don't aim at all. Yul Brynner gives a very traditional, stoic performance, hardly moving a muscle for any of his scenes. Many of the actors gave old-style, John Wayne-inspired performances, in which they stand perfectly still and read their lines with a straight face and dead earnesty. When they finally move, they seem to explode into action.
Contrast this with the fidgetting and fussing of Steve McQueen's much more human performance, and you can almost see how movies will change entirely in the next 15 years. Eli Wallach's bandit villian is a perfectly likeable fellow, while some of the heroes are hunted and greedy. The first scenes show the heroes confronting racism - in 1960! The Magnificent Seven was one of the first movies made outside of the studio system, and it shows. The entire supporting cast is played by Mexican actors who are willing -and allowed- to portray their characters in a realistic, human light.

5.0 out of 5 stars A review of the DVD in specific May 31 2004
Format:DVD
This is a superbly remastered and restored film, It comes with some brilliant extras including original trailers and more interestingly a documentary on the film named "Guns For Hire".
If you are a fan of the actors in this classic you'll love the doco which shows what they went on to do and includes some interviews showing the actors today and telling how Yul Brynner brought this tale to life.
For Steve McQueen fans you get a little insight into how he tries to steal every scene he appears in.
The film is a great telling of an adventurous story based on the Toho studios film "The Seven Samurai".
The commentary features actors James Coburn, Eli Wallach, producer Walter Mirisch & Ass Director Rob Reylea. It covers many interesting stories from a set which saw several stars of the time and even the wedding of Yul Brynner.
Worth a viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Film May 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I can't believe some of the low reviews this film has gotten! I think it is because so many people who have seen THE SEVEN SAMURAI, have a hard time separating this film from that film. I like to think of them as two different films, based on the same story and judge each on their own merits. This film gives me chills down my spine everytime I see it. I honestly am compelled throughout. Two things I will mentioned, as I could just repeat what all the other favorable reviews said. Charles Bronson's relationship with the young Mexican boys is very endearing. One of his best performances, and a precursor to his later efforts. Plus, everyone else seems to over look the actor, Horst Buchholz, who plays Chico. He is so good in this and deserves some credit as well. One of his earliest performances that was seen by American audiences. This man was often referred to as the German James Dean. One of his last seen by American film goers, was as the kind German Officer in Life Is Beautiful (He passed away in 2003). Just thought with all the talk about those really cool dudes in this film, Brenner, McQueen, Bronson, etc. Horst deserved a mention.

Great old flick. Nice to see all the western classics and the actors of old. I'm sure todays youth would think these type films are a bit cheesy though.
