‘The Magnificent 7’

magnificent7_intl_1sht_englishAction-packed thrills with a perfunctory storyline and little in terms of character development. Yet, surprisingly, it doesn’t matter one jot.

Director Antoine Fuqua (Southpaw, Training Day) reunites with Denzel Washington (Training Day, The Equalizer) in an engrossing and exciting (second) remake of Kurosawa’s Japanese classic. Lots of shoot outs and macho strutting – but then, it is a western.

And I love the political statement at the end (of the seven, check out who survives!)
