Reel Talk: The Magnificent Seven

Director:  Antoine Fuqua

Release Date: September 23rd, 2016

Synopsis:  In the old west, seven gun men gradually come together to help a poor village against  savage thieves

Review: Trappings of typical western affairs are on full display in the remake of the 1960's film  The Magnificent Seven. With no shortage of extended shootouts, wry quips, and reactionary shots,Washington's and Fuqua's  latest team up  doesn't break any molds, as it relates to the genre, but the eclectic consortium of characters and the tried and true revenge plot does its' due diligence in being the type of action flick that you would watch alongside your grandfather while donning some drug store cowboy apparel, thus making the two gun kid  quite proud. Not to mention, that it's been a long time coming for  an African American cowboy to take center stage without it being a complete mockery! (I'm looking at you Boss N*****!!) (B-) 

Join me Friday as we talk in detail about the latest senseless shooting of an unarmed African American male in the entry entitled  "That Looks Like a Bad Dude" - CgN
