Video Analyses The Action Of 2016's THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN

A new video essay looks at director Antoine Fuqua's staging of action in the western remake.







The notion of remaking the 1960 western classic The Magnificent Seven (itself a remake of The Seven Samurai of course) was met with general disdain, but Antoine Fuqua's 2016 reboot turned out to be a generally satisfying popcorn actioner, if not a great western.

This video essay from Rossatron looks at Fuqua's staging of the film's action scenes, and how the commercial need for a PG rating affected its portrayal of violence.
