Talk about diversity in a group I would love to be a part of!
Not a western person, but you beat your sweet hiney a western that has Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt is one I would watch!
You know the story because it’s been done before time and time again but this one definitely had me hooked from the start. You have the bad guy played by Peter Sarsgaard, who has pretty much control over this small town. When the people finally take their stand Bogue, Sarsgaard’s character, doesn’t hesitate to start killing people.
Emma Cullen (Hailey Bennett) finds Sam Chisolm, played by the bad ass Denzel Washington, and begs him for help. Emma’s husband was killed by Bogue in front of the town. With people leaving their homes or people forced to stay under Bogue’s order, Emma seeks Chisolm’s expertise in fighting.
Chisolm goes on a mission to recruit the best of the best. Here we have our squad goals! Faraday, Chris Pratt, the gambler. Goodnight, Ethan Hawk, the sharpshooter. Horne, Vincent D’Onofrio, the hunter. Billy, Byung-hun Lee, the assassin. Vasquez, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, the outlaw. Red Harvest, Martin Sensmeier, the warrior.
In Hollywood it’s difficult to have a pair have good chemistry, romantic or otherwise. This movie did well was have a great cast and showcase that very chemistry! You have this seven characters, and some are more focused than others, but you still see than as a group. Each of them brought something but ultimately it came to Denzel and Chris that carried the movie.
One that surprised me and I know we’ll be seeing more of, is Hailey Bennett. This chick is badass! She was no dimsel in distress and was willing to fight and die for her people and justice for her husband. To keep up with seven men, eight really with Luke Grimes’s character, Teddy, and manage to put them in their place, she’s my idol!
The Magnificent Seven was action packed, beginning to end, hilarious, amazing and talented cast, great chemistry, a story we’ve all heard time and time again but this one made it style! I had a great time with this movie and I left feeling energized and ready for a stallion, pistol, and cowboy hat!
