Top 10 Westerns

The seven cowboys of The Magnificent Seven

The Magnificent Seven features some of the most popular action stars in cinema history
Plot: The elders of a terrorized Mexican village send three residents to the north to get help from gunmen. A group of seven assemble to protect the town.

Perks: You might consider it blasphemy, but we find this remake of Kurosawa's epic masterpiece, "The 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.
