It looks like direct Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington like working together, because they are back for another gun-toting adventure. Seriously – every time Fuqua directs Washington the bullets really fly!
Fans might protest that The Magnificent Seven is just another remake, but it’s been quite a while since the original, with Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and the gang, was released. Is 56 years too soon?
