I was expecting to enjoy The Magnificent Seven; I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the 2016 version of The Magnificent Seven, based on the screenplay of the same name by Akira Kurosawa. Kurosawaâ€™s film, The Seven Samurai had a great influence on this film. In this legend, seven rough, fighting men volunteer to defend a small town against a dark enemy. Remarkably the warriorsâ€™ back stories are well developed, making the saga fascinating. The calamities that occur in the evolving story show how raw things could get in the â€śgood old daysâ€ť during the post-Civil War era. The action flows smoothly along as the story rushes to the climactic ending. Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and Vincent Dâ€™Onofrio star in this Western. Overall Rating A+
Linguistic professor Louise Banks (Amy Adams) is a mysterious figure who is called by the government to solve a puzzle involving a mysterious aircraft. Colonel Weber (Forest Whitaker) and scientist Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner) accompany Banks on her mission. The story's timelines move rapidly between the future and the present, accompanied by Banksâ€™s increasingly eerie, erratic visions. Circumstances surrounding the unnatural aircraft and principal characters are not what they seem. Soon, dangerous events pressure the central characters to crack the mystery of the aircraft before disaster occurs. Overall Rating: A+
Operative Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and CIA agent August Walker (Henry Cavill) are assigned to find three plutonium cores, after Hunt failed to make a successful trade for the cores.
