The Magnificent Seven came out back in 2016 in the American theatres and made a permanent place in the hearts of all the audience. The main genre of this story is action as well as drama. Antoine Fuqua has directed the story while it is written by Nic Pizzolatto as well as Richard Wenk. The movie has been remade, taking its inspiration from the 1960 film of the same name. All these reboots have come across from the original Japanese film called Seven Samurai, which came out in 1954. The main role in this tale was bagged by Denzel Washington as well as Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke. You guys should know that this was the last film that James Horner has ever made who died the previous year after composing the part of the score.
The plot was set in 1879, and the story starts with a river baron as well as a gold mining tycoon named Bartholomew Bogue. They have with them an army of hired guns and have even seized the control of the American frontier town of Rose Creek by their immense force and power. The residents of the town are slaved by him for cheap labor at his mine. When the villagers stand against him at the church and denounce his rule, he ignites the church on fire and even kills a few men along with a farmer named Matthew Cullen so as to establish his dominance over the people. As for Emma, the widow of Matthew, along with their friend Teddy, they leave in order to hire some bounty hunters to help liberate the entire town.
They first add Sam Chrisholm to their team, who used to be a US Marshal, and get involved with the team after hearing of Bogue’s involvement. Later in the film, we see them getting more men involved against Bogue. These total of seven men enter Rose Creek and kill twenty-two detectives from Blackstone who was hired in order to guard the entire town. Later, we see that Chrisholm apprehends the corrupt sheriff and sends him away to inform Bogue that it is them who control his holdings in Rose Creek. He then tells the people of the town that they mostly have seven days before the men of Bogue arrive. Upon hearing this, most of them flee from the place, but a lot of them are determined to fight for their rights in the town and their home.
The seven takedowns Bogue’s explosive and free the men stuck in mine. They then trained the people and built a protective fort and strategy for the next week. Later, Bogue demands his force to take Rose Creek back. Most of these men, when they attack the place, get killed because of the traps and explosives which was already set by Chrisholm for them. As the battle is still going on among the men, the defensive line collapses, and much of the chaos follows after. Bogue’s men manage to outgun the Seven, and thus, they decide to flee with the remaining people to the burnt church and build their one last shot at a stand.
After a lot of gunshots and killing, Chrisholm is finally standing against two mercenaries and Bogue. He easily kills the two men and disarms Bogue by blasting the gun out of his hand. Bogue then escapes to the burnt Church, where Chrisholm reveals his personal revenge upon Bogue, who hired men to kill his family. As Bogue is trying to pull a hidden derringer on him, Emma shoots him dead.
