It takes well-planned actions to have an optimum revenge. Otherwise, the undertaking is sort of joke instead of heroic and decent deeds. That’s the moral and lesson learned from the latest Chris Pratt’s movie entitled The Magnificent Seven.
The movie is opened by tragic incident in which Bart Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard) launches brutal murder towards those who oppose the operation of his gold mining company in Rose Creek. Refusing to move away from the small city, Matthew Cullen (Matt Bomer) leads the people and killed in front of his loving wife Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett). Not long afterwards, in order to find justice to what Bogue did to her city and her husband) Emma, accompanied by Teddy Q (Luke Grimes), moves to nearby city. There both meet Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), a warrant officer from Wichita, Kansas. He is doing his job; making the law works for the society. What he does captivates Emma and Teddy, and both propose him to be willing to accept the mission with minor financial rewards since they have nothing left.
To their surprise, Sam accepts the proposal, and then sends Faraday (Chris Pratt), a gambler with superb shooting skill to get Sam’s fellows, i.e. Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke) and Billy Rocks (Byuun-Hyung Lee) while Sam himself pursues Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), a Mexican outlaw. Together they go to Rose Creek, and encounters Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio) whose skill in tracking is second to none and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). The seven persons is led by Sam, and seeks justice following their own belief and value. At the end of the movie audience will discover Sam’s main reason accepting Emma’s offer, which describes Sam’s well-managed personality and character.
As a remake, The Magnificent Seven manages to win the attention of its viewers. It’s rich in components of good movie. Driven by dramatic causes, the movie contains superb action encapsulated by human values of friendship, sacrifice, brotherhood and noble principles. We can see this in Red Harvest’s words when he kills Denali (Jonathan Joss), to whom he considers the latter as a disgrace to Indian people. The young warrior of native America also has tender brotherhood with Jack Horne who is said to make fortune from killing Indian people. After fierce battle with Bogue’s men, it is Red Harvest who has Jack Horne’s body on his horse; a touching scene which will evoke emotion of audience of the movie and makes it more interesting to see.
