The Magnificent Seven ★★★★

A rarity, a big commercial Hollywood blockbuster that gets the blood pumping without dumbing it down nor compromising its violence. Denzel leads the other six guys against Sarsgaard's army and they're all treated equally in every aspect. Action wise, dialogue wise, everything! Fuqua directs with style to burn and the action is powerful, big, potent, I can't believe it's a PG 13 film. I had a blast watching it. The tepid and mixed reviews are a mystery to me. A worthy remake of a remake of a remake of a...how many is that?
