    Synopsis


    The Magnificent Seven Ride!
    This is the final sequel to The Magnificent Seven. In this chapter, the lead gunslinger has settled down with a new wife, and has become the marshal of a little town. His peaceful existence is disrupted when a psychotic outlaw rides in, robs the bank, wounds the marshal with his gun, and then rapes and kills his new wife. The marshal is then assigned to save some widowed women from ruthless banditos. To help him, he rallies an eastern journalist and five hardened convicts to ride in and stop them. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    Return of the Magnificent Seven
    The first of two sequels to The Magnificent Seven (1960), this bloody western featured only Yul Brynner from the original picture's all-star cast. Once again, the residents of a pastoral Mexican village become enslaved by a maniacal brute, this time the insane rancher Lorca (Emilio Fernandez), who has corralled a small army of 50 gunmen to intimidate the citizenry into building a church in memory of his son. Chico (now played by Julian Mateos), an original member of the seven gunslingers from the first film, hears of the villagers' plight and sends for Chris Adams (Brynner), who rounds up another lucky seven shootists from various places of ill-repute (including prison). The new bunch, which now includes Warren Oates and Claude Akins, storms the storm, intending to restore order. This film was, in turn, followed by a pair of further sequels, Guns of the Magnificent Seven (1969) and The Magnificent Seven Ride! (1972). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    The Magnificent Seven
    Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai (1954) is westernized as The Magnificent Seven. Yul Brynner plays Chris, a mercenary hired to protect a Mexican farming village from its annual invasion by bandit Calvera (Eli Wallach). As Elmer Bernstein's unforgettable theme music (later immortalized as the "Marlboro Man" leitmotif) blasts away in the background, Chris rounds up six fellow soldiers of fortune to help him form a united front against the bandits. The remaining "magnificent six" are played by Charles Bronson, Steve McQueen, Horst Buchholz, Robert Vaughn, James Coburn, and (the one that everybody forgets) Brad Dexter. Though jam-packed with action, William Roberts's screenplay pauses long enough to flesh out each of its characters, allowing the audience to pick their own favorites. The Magnificent Seven was followed by three sequels, not to mention dozens of imitations. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Guns of the Magnificent Seven
    Chris (George Kennedy) is the lone survivor of the original seven gunmen who is recruited to help in a peasant struggle in Mexico. Colonel Diego (Michael Ansara)is the ruthless military commandant of a Mexican prison holding the leader of the revolt. With knife expert Levi Morgon (James Whitmore) and firearms experts Keno (Monte Markham), P.J. (Scott Thomas) and Slater (Joe Don Baker), they enlist the help of the giant black man Cassie (Bernie Casey) and two others to rescue the leader of the proposed revolt. The evil Diego employs his torturous and inhuman practices on both sides of the prison walls in a effort to stop the heroes from rescuing the prisoner in this action packed western saga. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

      If you need a break from today's comic book hero and modern day action hero movies replete with their obligatory car chases and nanosecond scene cuts so that you can't follow the action then try something different. Here is the original classic action heroes movie in a classic Western setting - The Magnificent Seven! Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and James Coburn are the original classic action heroes who inspired countless stars even today. Now out on Blu-ray is the entire collection of the Magnificent Seven movies. Although the original is undoubtedly the best, the three credible sequels are enjoyable to see other Western/Action Heroes from this era. Great package and value will provide you countless hours of enjoyment.

      A Classic Series for Western Fans

      I saw all four of these movies in a theater when they originally came out but it's been a long time since then. I just watched this collection in sequence and it was a pleasure to view them again, after so long. The movies looked great and with the enhanced sound it was like being in a theater again. If you like westerns, you would be very happy with this collection. Back at the time, and still today, I feel the first two titles are the best - once Yul Brynner left the last two films just weren't as good, in my opinion. Still an enjoyable set - I miss westerns but heartily recommend this collection and "Open Range" as great examples of the genre!

      It was good to see some of the years past actors in their prime (or coming into their prime). Now we can see why Yul Brynner was so popular back then,, because he has this stage presence that takes over the scenes. Good to be reminded of the young actors that were coming into their own, such as Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, and James Colburn who was so cool in his role as the quiet knife throwing gunman. Also, have to give credit to Eli Wallach as the lead bandit who played a good role. Good to watch when in between other recent movies.

      The 1960 original is great - the sequels? Hmmm.

      After the 2016 remake came out, many people were wondering what the original was like. This collection answers that question: The original was well scripted and well acted and had a great musical score. In my opinion, the 1960 version is superior to 2016's effort. Based solely on getting the original, this is worth it. This collection, however, goes further and provides three sequels from 1966, 1969 and 1972. These sequels are fun to watch, but they are a pale imitation of either of the "Magnificent Seven"s.

      The price of this set is worth it for the first movie alone, which is an absolute classic. That's the long and short of it. The fact that you get the sequels is just gravy. None of them can match the original, but if you're just a completionist, or just have an unexplainable affinity for inferior sequels like I do, you'll be happy to have the full Magnificent Seven collection for just a couple dollars more than the cost of the first film alone.

      Four movies for $15, it's hard to go wrong. The first film is a classic, it's what the Denzel/Pratt remake is based loosely on and in its own right has some great performances by some great actors in it. A well-above-average western, for this period in cinema. Three sequels too. Even though only Yul Brenner returns once and nobody else comes back at all, they're still fairly watchable.

      Bargain for four westerns

      All the movies are worth watching even though the original is still the best. The video and audio for the films are very good. All four have trailers as bonus features and the first film is loaded with other features. The only thing missing from the Collector's Edition DVD is the Christopher Frayling commentary but everything else is there.

      This collection of Magnificent Seven movies are one of the best westerns ever produced. The actors are some of the best in their roles in each of the collection-set movies. At least six times a year we love to watch The Magnificent Seven. In addition, the music score is so enjoyable to hear when the movie starts to get one ready to view one of the best western ever.
