Three sentence movie reviews: The Magnificent Seven


This was homework watching due to the upcoming release of the remake, but I was happy to find it was enjoyable homework.  I enjoyed Brynner & McQueen’s chemistry and the gradual change of both the townspeople and the hired guns was a pleasure to watch.  It’s rare to find a movie this old that kept me interested for the entire run time* but this was one!

Cost: free from library
