The Magnificent Seven ★★★

Good set-up with a clearly motivated villain and plot-driving story line. Likeable but underdeveloped cast of characters. Some really slick small action sequences to start things off and introduce the seven. But it's real failure for me is staging - right from the start the geography of the town and mine wasn't totally clear and it never improved. To the point where the choreography of the final battle was incomprehensible at times. "Where's he?" "Where are they now?" "Which way are they going?" "How far are they?" Etc., etc. More attention to the plan and a little more time with the heroes and townsfolk would've really worked for me.
