The Magnificent Seven (2016)

IO-pinion

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a western. (Oh forgot about West World but that wasn’t a movie). The last one has been The Hateful Eight (2015) because of the Quentin Tarantino hype but the one before that has several years ago.

It’s a western, how not to expect cowboys & indians, colt and dynamite and gold.

  • Indians – √
  • Escape from jail – ×

The movie is over 2 hours but that didn’t bother me at all. Scenery is very nice throughout the whole movie. It felt like the script rushed the part where the seven gunslingers are brought together. It would be nice to know a little bit more about some of them but the movie is already lasting over two hours so I guess you can’t really blame someone for that.

If it would have been a Marvel movie we would have 16 origin movies, 4 origin reboots and 9 movies with all the people together to tell the same story.

Being a remake you might know how the plot will unveil itself but I haven’t seen the original and was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t an all good, hero gets the girl, everybody happy movie in the end.

Ethan Hawke and Byung-hun Lee played their parts very good and were given an interesting character.

I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes the western setting or just a good action movie in up-to-date traditional style.

Westworld

About

The one-hour drama series Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the re-imagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.

Storyline

Westworld isn’t your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park allows its visitors to live out their most primal fantasies with the robotic “hosts.” However, the robotic hosts have evolved an artificial consciousness that is similar to, yet diverges from, human consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park’s guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged; but there is a price to be paid.
