I didn't know that the above was re made , starring Denzel Washington .

Watched bits of it the other night , in between falling asleep and waking up ,on the settee
( as usual )

Anyway from the bits I saw , it looked good

Unusual seeing Washington in a Western

I will look out for it when it comes on again

Anyone seen it ?

I stayed awake through out it Bazile, but in my opinion no one will match Clint Eastward.
Or Edward Wardwood.
He wasn't in it, Zacs. He wood have been if they'd asked him.
Someone said, 'Yes, Denzel makes for one very cool bad-ass with his shiny Colt .45 strapped to his hip with the butt forward, but that's about it.

There is almost nothing in this picture that is a surprise or unpredictable. Dialog between actors is awkward and stilted (and sometimes completely unintelligible). Very little background on any of the characters is presented and offers no development what-so-ever.'

That sums it up for me. Unless of course you are 10 years old and never saw the original.

It's folly to try to remake a film that was as near to dammit a perfect western.
I'd agree entirely withy Khandro's assessment - the film lacked character and decent dialogue, it was really quite poor, whether you have seen the original, or just knew this as a stand-alone film.

You two are taking this too seriously

It's a Western with people a shootin and blowing this up
Even the original was the same

If you want anything else then perhaps a Western is not for you ?
The only good western's a dead western.

Please go and wash out your mouth. :0)
Have watched it twice though it was excellent..I will never read or listen to film or music critics just because they don't like it doesn't mean everyone else won't like it

So true BS

Critics opinions
are just that - an opinion

Just like her indoors loves sprouts , whereas I think it's the devil's food :-)
Sprouts I love em she hates em lol
Brussels continues to divide opinion.

You're wrong to love them - lol
really an eastern, not a western - a remake of a film that was a remake of Seven Samurai (made by a Japanese who loved westerns).
I enjoyed it and was as expected from a Western a rootin' tootin' shoot 'em hoot.

Westerns are very much for me - High Noon, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Pale Rider, Unforgiven, Hang 'Em High, Django Unchained - all westerns or set in that era, and some of my favourite films ever.
I love the original and so was a bit skeptical when the remake was announced. However, I think it is a great movie for what it is. Ok, so some of the acting is a little bit wooden but it is a good movie if you want to escape for a few hours. Is it going to win any awards? No, but it is an enjoyable watch.
Question Author
Was there many black people, in the Old Wild West ?
Surprised Soldier Blue wasn't on your list, Andy. One of the very rare westerns that told it as it actually was.
about 1 in 4 cowboys were black
so were there 1 or 2 in the magnificent 7 ?
