Seven gun men in the old west gradually come together to help a poor village against savage thieves.

Two weeks ago, I went and saw this movie with a friend. I knew nothing about it when I walked into the theater. I just wanted to see it because I love Chris Pratt and I’ll watch anything with him in it. ย That being said, I didn’t expect this movie to have so much killing. The movie is PG-13, not R.

To give you a more descriptive summary of this movie, a man named Bartholomew Bouge has taken over a small town and murdered some of the townspeople in cold blood. An angry woman by the name of Emma Cullen seeks out Denzel’s character to help take back the town and get revenge on Bouge. I was interested in the movie for maybe 30 minutes and then I got bored.

Because it is Hollywood, this movie is not original. It is a remake of the original movie released in 1960. I didn’t really like the movie. I feel like they only brought Chris Pratt into the movie to be the comic relief. ย There’s not a lot of depth in this movie. I feel like it was made to make Denzel look like a bad-ass cowboy. That’s it. The movie was very predictable and about 60% of it is of them shooting at either things or people and a hell of a lot of killing.

Is this movie worth seeing? No. It’s not. My rating is 2.5 out of 5 stars. If you want a percentage, I would say 20% -30%. Save your money and wait for the movie to come onto RedBox. I’m sick of Hollywood remakes. How hard is it to make something that’s original?
