Lesson 29: The Magnificent Seven – Review
The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva and Chad Riley, take a trip down a dirt country road and review Antoine Fuqua’s interpretation of a Western classic, The Magnificent Seven. Starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Haley Bennett, and many others, the film takes moviegoers on an action-packed adventure, as seven gun men in the old west gradually come together to help a poor village against savage thieves. Do The Filmlosophers succumb to the nostalgia the film brings to the table, or do they take a hard nosed look at Fuqua’s representation of one of the best Western films in cinema history?
