Return of the Magnificent Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Spectacular gun battles, epic-sized heroes and an all-star cast that includes Academy AwardÂ(r) winners Yul Brynner* and James Coburn**, together with Steve McQueen, Eli Wallach and Charles Bronson, make The Magnificent Seven a legend among westerns. Spawning three sequels and a successful television series, and featuring Elmer Bernstein's OscarÂ(r)-nominated*** score, thisstunning remake of The Seven Samurai is "a hard-pounding adventure" (Newsweek) and "an enduringly popular" (Leonard Maltin) cinematic classic. Merciless Calvera (Wallach) and his band of ruthless outlaws are terrorizing a poor Mexican village, and even the bravest lawmen can't stop them. Desperate, the locals hire Chris Adams (Brynner) and six other gunfighters to defend them. With time running out before Calvera's next raid, the heroic seven must prepare the villagers for battle and help them find the courage to take back their town or die trying!

Review: We just reviewed the original Magnificent Seven on blu-ray.  Now, they're also releasing the first sequel...Return of the Magificent Seven!  While its not as good as the original, this one is definately the best of the sequels.  This is the first time you can get it in high-definition and it looks just as good as the original does on blu-ray!  Fantastic.  The film features all of the cast returning...still headed by the late, great Yul Brynner.  This one is a great buy for any fan of these films.

Interest Range: Western
