With a reemerging interest of Hollywood in productions reminiscent of old time westerns, Magnificent Seven explodes into theaters. If you grew up watching Bonanza or like me, watched it with my grandfather, you will love this film.

With modern film technology, Magnificent Seven brings the feel of westerns to life with louder and more realistic explosions and gun fights, and a nod to modern humor.

Starring Denzel Washington as a bounty hunting cowboy on a mission is joined by six other outlaws to help restore peace to a small town taken over by a money hungry man. Chris Pratt, an upcoming Hollywood heartthrob, plays a charismatic sharp shooting, gambling thief. These two men are also joined by a Mexican outlaw, a lone ranger type from the Comanche tribe, a bulldozing brute tracker of a man, a legendary shot with demons that overcome him, and a knife toting assassin. The men gather to help a young woman seek revenge and attempt to regain her community’s town.

Already grossing $35 million on its first weekend in theaters, Magnificent Seven has already impressed and entertained thousands. I strongly recommend this movie. Prepare to be impressed and entertained!
