Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Magnificent Seven

Mostly solid, but Byung Hun-Lee Hun's largely dialog-free performance shows what this film should've been in some respect. Making the titular band of outlaws more of a presence and a force to be reckoned with than a gaggle of wisecracking, generic cowboy archetypes. It's not really a problem when that strong finale rolls around because then the larger problem comes to light - this should've been rated R.
