OUR RATING: ★★★☆☆

Story: Action western remake directed by Antoine Fuqua, the story is set in the town of Rose Creek which is under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard). The desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns, Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier).

As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.

Verdict: This is one of those films which has a great cast which suffers from a generic plot, but it’s servicable. The bad guys are a bit two dimensional but this is still a fun western escapism with great performances.
