( - I received an invite to an action, Western entitled "The Magnificent Seven" and immediately realized this was a remake of an old classic Western.  I saw that Denzel Washington was the main character, so I knew I wanted to see it.  The synopsis given as as follows:

Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns. As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.

Antoine Fuqua has worked with Denzel Washington before, in "Training Day," so I know they have good chemistry.  The trailer for the film was as follows:

That trailer was good enough for me.

Cutting straight to the point:  Magnificent Seven is a decent film.  It is not magnificent, but will hold your attention.  This movie is kind of long, but is truly engaging throughout.  Each individual of the "Seven" had a unique movie story line, so just trying to see that back story was cool enough and engaging enough to see this film. The IMAX showing added real pop to the film (you should see at least one Western in this format), and this film will potentially get you hooked on seeing  Western style films in IMAX format.  The theater clapped at the end of the show!

I did read that they will only have this film in IMAX format for 7 days, so if you plan on seeing it in that format, rush to the theaters!

My full thoughts here:

That's enough of what I thought.  Listen to what others had to say about this below.
