Any of you seen the 2016 remake of The Magnificent Seven? Lol. I just saw it and man..... Theres some scenes in the end that will absolutely KILL you if you care about logic at all! It goes way beyond insulting your intelligence. Ive never been mocked by an ending like that in a western film before! Lol
Anyway most of the film was entertaining, fun and brainless. But the long battle scene at the end between hundreds of people leaves open so much room for criticism......
First of all, the hundreds of men and women shooting each other in the town on both sides are all wearing the same type of clothes. How the hell can everyone tell who is on which side? They were all riding around in circles during the mass gunfight too. It'd be easy to get everyone mixed up. Theres no way to tell who to shoot and whos on which side. It was a total mess.
Second, the scene at the end with chris pratt, one of the magnificent seven good guys, will totally kill you! Lol. The guy gets shot at least five times. He takes five bullets in his torso as hes approaching the bad guys shooting the gatling gun!
You think he must be dead after five bullets go into him. Yet he gets up and manages to smoke a cigar as though it were funny! Then you wonder "why wont the f***er die? Geez!"
Then as the bad guys are about to finish him off with another shot, he finally collapses as hes smoking the cigar. Then you think, finally the bastard dies. Then...... Get this........ He suddenly GETS UP again! This time hes holding a stick of dynamite too!
The bad guys just stand there and say "uh oh hes got dynamite" before he throws it at the gatling gun and blows them all up! Lol. No f***ing way! Lol. Get outta here! That wouldnt even happen in a cartoon! Its the most insulting scene i ever seen in a film!!!!!!
Whats more, when he got up again with the dynamite, there was several seconds in which the bad guys could have quickly shot him again so that the dynamite would only blow up chris pratt and not them. Thats what the bad guys should have done. There was plenty of time to shoot him again. But instead they just stand there and say "uh oh" before getting blown up. Stupid cliche.
Third, why is it that when the bad guys get shot once, they die immediately. But the good guys can take 4 or 5 gunshots or arrows each before they slowly die? Whats the logic behind that? How does being a good guy allow one to take 4 or 5 bullets before one dies a very slow death? Lol. Bizarre. But I've seen that in many action movies before. Many action films have the good guys taking many bullets before they die. Its a cliche pretty much.
What i dont get is why they cant make an action flick, even a brainless one, without so many bad logic flaws, impossibilities and cliches. I mean i expect there to be some exaggerations and impossibilities in any action movie. But why make them so bad and extreme as this? To insult our intelligence? Lol.
This one really takes the cake. Its entertaining but the scenes above are just too much. Way over the top. I thought id seen the worst insults to my intelligence from movies already, until this one. This is the worst and takes the cake. Lol. It will kill you if you like to analyze films in the slightest. Lol.
The Magnificent Seven (2016)
How can a guy get shot five times and then get up and smoke a cigarette? Lol. That really takes the cake. Why doesnt the bastard die? Lol
Also why does the surviving protagonist who finishes off the main villain need to be black? Denzel Washington. To be politically correct? Lol
