From Amazon.co.uk

Akira Kurosawa's rousing Seven Samurai was a natural for an American remake--after all, the codes and conventions of ancient Japan and the Wild West (at least the mythical movie West) are not so very far apart. Thus The Magnificent Seven effortlessly turns samurai into cowboys (the same trick worked more than once: Kurosawa's Yojimbo became Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars). The beleaguered denizens of a Mexican village, weary of attacks by banditos, hire seven gunslingers to repel the invaders once and for all. The gunmen are cool and capable, with most of the actors playing them just on the cusp of '60s stardom: Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn. The man who brings these warriors together is Yul Brynner, the baddest bald man in the West. There's nothing especially stylish about the approach of veteran director John Sturges (The Great Escape), but the storytelling is clear and strong, and the charisma of the young guns fairly flies off the screen. If that isn't enough to awaken the 12-year-old kid inside anyone, the unforgettable Elmer Bernstein music will do it: bum-bum-ba-bum, bum-ba-bum-ba-bum... Followed by three inferior sequels, Return of the Seven, Guns of the Magnificent Seven, and The Magnificent Seven Ride! --Robert Horton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
If, like me, you grew up in the UK between, say, 1975-1990, you will be well aware of a certain number of films which made up the bulk of family TV during public holidays. The Magnificent Seven is undoubtedly chief among these. No bank holiday Monday was ever complete without the heroics of Yul Bryner & Co. enlivening our living rooms and the sound of Elmer Bernstein's fabulous score ringing in our ears.
And this lovely memory of days gone by suggests to me the strength and weakness of this tremendously popular film. On the one hand, Seven is a blast from start to finish - great fun! But on the other hand, in order to rattle along at a suitably action-packed pace the film lacks sufficent characterisation and plot development to lift it out of the best of the rest category and into the all time greats (of the genre, that is). Sure, there are characters and there is a plot but they are, let's be honest, pretty thin on the ground.
Nevertheless, the film is highly enjoyable and definitely worth repeated viewing. The DVD extras are nice, particularly the feature on the making of the film. There are interviews with some of the cast, crew and folk behind the film and a few nuggets of info which make watching the film a little more fun.
For example, a lot is made of the young Steve McQueen's attempts to be the star of the film and the little acting tricks he employed to capture the camera's, and hence the viewers' attention. Several anecdotes relating to this are told and are great fun to hear!
At its heart, Seven was a vehicle for six rising Hollywood stars and the established star, Yul Bryner. The chemistry between them and the friction on and off the screen adds to the dramatic effect of the film and the results are...dare I say it, magnificent!

Yes this Blu ray release of The Magnificent Seven is the best the film has looked. There is so much more sharpness to the original film, and makes the old video tape releases look rather sub standard compared to this. You can tell that the soundtrack in the movie has been cleaned up and the dialogue too, creating a whole new experience of the movie with the capabilities of this superior format. Tremendous service from Amazon yet again, arrived in lovely time, it is also a considerable upgrade from the normal DVD release, I personally could tell straight away, it's all more vivid and audiable.

I have not seen “The Magnificent Seven” in widescreen since I first saw it in the theatre in 1960. I have been watching it in pan & scan for about 40 years now. It is my favorite motion picture. Seeing it in widescreen opened new vistas for me. It finally seems like the large scale yet personal drama that it always deserved to be. I can greater appreciate the composition of the different camera frames by noticing facial expressions and the like that have gone unnoticed for years. There is more character development here than I even imagined. There is more beauty and detail to the landscape unto which the story unfolds. The film has now at last taken on legendary proportions thanks to this format. Yul Brynner as Chris, Steve McQueen as Vin, Charles Bronson as O'Reilly, Robert Vaughn as Lee, Brad Dexter as Harry Luck, James Coburn as Britt and Horst Buchholz as Chico are all imbedded into the psyche of anyone who ever saw this movie and felt its emotional impact. These are real screen heroes.
There is something very magical about this film. This is different from every other Western that came before it. I believe it is the nature of the seven gunfighters, their motives for that one chance at gallantry and redemption. That combined with the way the story is visually told makes for its greatness. It teaches us something about nobility, dignity and devotion. The hearse-ride taken up to Boot Hill with Yul Brynner driving and Steve McQueen riding shotgun sets the stage and tone for the entire film. Images such as Charles Bronson, bent over from a bullet and the three little Mexican boys clutching him crying out his name while in his death throes bring a tear to the eye.

If you are a western fan you will enjoy this film. If you haven't already seen it do so now. It was one of the earliest westerns to feature a modern more natural dialogue, with many witty one-liners which were just as entertaining as the stock shooting and fighting scenes. It set the scene for many westerns that followed. I have also seen the Seven Samurai (on which it is based) and did not enjoy its subtitles and dark and brooding atmosphere in which it was sometimes difficult to distinguish who was fighting whom. The Magnificent Seven is a light, bright, full of action western movie. The actors are all superb - most of them were unknown and went on to carve out major careers after this film. The direction is first class, the dialogue is snappy, the music memorable and the photography excellent. The Blu-ray reproduction is out of this world and well worth having in your collection.

Great Film Blu-Ray is far better than the DVD release,
lots of extras inc the audio commentary, which is not listed on the back of the box.
A must buy from Amazon at this really low price.
