A small town is being victimized and stripped of its resources by profiteers and villains. With what little they have they hire a small band of mercenaries to help fight off the evil plaguing them. Based on the screenplay and film by the acclaimed Akira Kurosawa, Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven takes that classic story from feudal Japan to the American old west.
Director John (The Great Escape) Sturges put an all-star cast together for the original 1960 version with Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach, Horst Buchholz, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and James Coburn. That filmed spawned three sequels, a television remake and television series. Director Antoine (Training Day) Fuqua would bring the Seven back to the silver screen with Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Senmeier, Haley Bennett, and Peter Sarsgaard.
Invasion of the Remake puts on their dusters and travels back to a time where seven men dared to take on an army. Are both movies magnificent or will one be a misfire? Join Jason, Sam and Trish on a ride only Invasion of the Remake can take you on this week's episode.
