GUNS OF THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (Theatrical Releease USA 1969)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.3|5.0 Starsììì

Guns of the Magnificent Seven teams with George Kennedy to play the part of this story’s main character, Chris. George Kennedy lends a rougher interpretation for the leading character which is welcomed as it adds more realism to this film, but the film seems more run-of-the-mill than its predecessor even though the action scenes show improvement. This movie serves the western fan and will be enjoyed within its genre.

Storyline

A Mexican revolutionary travels to hire an American gunslinger to help the revolutionary cause.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. A bona fide western fan will want to watch the film as it is part of the series, but the first film, The Magnificent Seven tops all the sequels to date.
