msmichel's rating of the film The Magnificent Seven

Rousing and often action packed if unnecessary remake (of a remake). Washington equates himself well to the world of westerns often compensating for a smug Chris Pratt. The characters this time around are no more than a cypher simply hitting their marks as they go around. The camera work of Fiore is quite good and perhaps with a stronger director there could have been a little more substance.
