The Magnificent Seven (12A)
Antoine Fuqua, USA, 2016, 133’
In this modern version of the classic story, the town of Rose Creek is under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard). The desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws – 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.
