It's good, but it's no Seven Samurai.
most people don't realize Kurosawa based films such as Seven Samurai and Yojimbo on inspiration he got from viewing the American westerns of John Ford. The samurai genre directly imitated and was influenced by the western.
Of course, the western genre is the perfect place for any American remake of a samurai film, and this goes to prove it. But while this had nothing on its predecessor (which was almost an hour and a half longer and far more entertaining), "Seven" did have its moments; The photography and craftsmanship were top notch. The acting though seemed a little stiff with certain characters (while others like Brynner and Wallach were great). Overall, I give the film one star for each star. 7/10
