Personally, I would never call these 7 saddle-tramps "magnificent". On the contrary, they were far from being that. But, of course, if the viewer was clued into this, then, you can be sure that this 1960 Western would've inevitably flopped at the box-office.

Considering that The Magnificent 7 was made at the very pinnacle in popularity of movie Westerns, I was really surprised to see how severely lacking in the action department that this cowboy movie was. There was just far too many critical lapses in the action to hold this viewer's undivided attention for this film's full 130-minute running time.

Out of all the big-name actors starring in this picture there wasn't even one, single stand-out performance in the entire lot. The attitude of sheer laziness that prevailed amongst this lot of actors was annoying beyond belief.

In between frequently senseless bursts of triumphant music, it really killed me that these 7 rough & rugged dudes in the story all chose to risk their very lives for a lousy $20 (payable to each, if they lived, after the job was done).

The biggest bit of nonsense in this story was when big, bad bandito, Calvera, with his mighty force of 40 thieves, actually captured the 7 and, then, inexplicably set them free. Naturally, these dudes gallantly returned in order to finish all of the bad guys off.

All-in-all - This over-rated Western was nothing but a major disappointment on all counts.

I WANTED TO SEE ELI WALLACH
AGAIN SINCE HIS RECENT PASSING. WAS GREAT TO SEE THE 7 GUN SLINGERS AGAIN IN A 1960'S MOVIE CLASSIC. GREAT STORY LINE AND MUSIC SCORE. BE SURE AND WATCH SPECIAL FEATURES, MAKING OF THE MOVIE.

One of the classic films of all time -- and you're officially a film buff if you can name all seven actors who make up the team!

Western version of the 7 samurai.

One of the greatest westerns ever made, where actor Steve McQueen shows why he's the stuff of legend.

A nice film about the old west and the brutalities which occurred there.

Great film for the interaction between men. I know some women who
get it but they also understand men.

Good film but it can't beat Seven Samurai.

Awful seven times over.
Makes you wish they would never make a Western film again.
Gag.
