The original Magnificent Seven was not the original Magnificent Seven. The 1960 Hollywood movie was based on Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 epic Seven Samurai — to the point where Kurosawa received uncredited credit for the screenplay (go figure). Both the 60’s version and this year’s re-make ditch samurai swords for firearms.
Which is strange given the Hollywood elite’s advocacy of civilian disarmament. Or not. I mean, the well-armed Magnificent Seven are defending a disarmed populace, no? Then again, they’re not cops. Anyway, plenty of gunplay on screen and hidden hypocrisy behind the scenes. Literally.
