Don’t go see The Magnificent Seven in theaters.
It is pretty ridiculous and not always in a good way.
Denzel is hands-down the best part. And while none of the rest of the Magnificent crew are bad, per se, the sum is less than the parts. Peter Saarsgard’s “Bartholomew Bogue” is so two-dimensionally evil I’m shocked he didn’t literally tie a woman to the train tracks.
You should totally rent it as a dumbed-down, shoot-em-out Western in a few months, though. There’s a cast full of attractive men in chaps and Haley Bennett, or as I call her, “Discount Jennifer Lawrence”(no offense Ms. Bennett, you were good both here and in Kristy, which I randomly watched a few months back, and your IMDB is filling up fast!)
This has been today’s edition of “Save Your Money” by NomNom83.
