Comments

A Classic Western This one has it all:great characters, great music, great plot.Yes, it's an adaptation of The Seven Samurai, but it's more of a homage than anything, and puts a unique, Old West/American spin on the whole thing.Each of the Seven is well-drawn, and given enough character time that you care for those who live and those who die.The concept of a "team" of specialists has contributed to dozens of movies since M7's release:there are any number of western TV shows (Wildside, Outlaws, Brisco County, and the eventual TV series M7 itself) who owe their existence to the concepts introduced here. Although Yul Brynner is the "star," it is also an interesting predecessor of the "ensemble" movies of later years, and lays the groundwork for much of those as well.
