The Magnificent Seven Review

Synopsis

The Magnificent Seven” is a valid example. The first, made in 1960, is an affectionately recalled Western — itself a rawhide revamp of Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai” — that is a “exemplary” more by dint of wistfulness than significance.

It’s graced with one of the most happy melodic topics in Hollywood history (Dun! Dun de dun! Dun! de dun-dun!), however the actual film is what Variety, in the days of yore, would have called a happy, activity weighty oater.

It gave seven entertainers, drove by the jewel sharp glare of Yul Brynner, an opportunity to swagger their hambone stuff. The rationale of changes says: Why not gather together another cavalry of stars to venture into their spikes? It’s not disrespect.

Now that the Summer of Rehashes is north of, a many individuals abruptly appear to concur that redoing films, particularly when they’re dearest and permanent works of art, is a horrible thought for Hollywood to seek after.

It’s proof of innovative insolvency — a dependence on non-inventiveness. All things considered, on the grounds that a film is a duplicate doesn’t mean it’s terrible.

(There are great revamps, similar to “Sea’s Eleven” or “Cape Fear,” and great spin-offs, similar to the “Bourne” films.) The brazen yet square, obediently fabricated, at last deadened change of “The Magnificent Seven,” which starts off the 41st Toronto Intl.

Film Festival, focuses to a more profound justification for why revamps frequently don’t work out: The allure of the first will in general be established in the manner it communicates something of its period, so attempting to recover what made it dominating is a bonehead’s match.

You can reassemble similar plot and characters; what’s interesting is reigniting the material’s inward flash.
