A group of seven gunmen assemble to protect a terrorized Mexican village.

You might consider it blasphemy, but we find this 1960 remake of Kurosawa's epic masterpiece, "Seven Samurai," much more entertaining than the original. Perhaps that's because it stars the familiar faces of Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, Steve McQueen and James Coburn, and it’s a delight to see these fine actors at such a young age playing virtuous archetypal heroes. The story: The elders of a terrorized Mexican village send three residents to the north to get help. A group of seven gunmen assemble to protect the town.
