Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, and Charles Bronson star in the western remake of The Seventh Samurai. While this sounds like a rather strange idea, but just like the name with The Man With No Name Trilogy this is a great film. The plot if you’ve seen the original is verbatim. The most interesting part of this film is that the dynamic between all of the characters and actors. They bring this remake to life and I have to say it has one of the best scenes I’ve seen in a film. I definitely recommend seeing this film and seeing it.
Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)
This is one of my favorite Westerns ever made. First of it’s based of Seven Samurais which makes it an instant classic then you throw in Yule Brenner, Steve McQueen, and Charles Bronson it. I love watching this movie but I also hate it because I loved James Colburn as Britt in the final battle he dies and it is probably one of the saddest scenes in Westerns. His character development is wonderful from his opening scene where he kills a man in a dual with just his knife. Several others die during the fight but none as important as Britt. I think this film is a must own and must watch. It is an interesting take on the Japanese classic that will stand the test of time.
