Guns of the Magnificent Seven is a handy follow-up to the 1960 original Magnificent Seven and Return of the Seven. It rises above a routine story line via rugged treatment and action builds to a blazing gunplay climax.
George Kennedy takes on role played by Yul Brynner in two previous films, the only remaining character of the original seven.
Filmed entirely in Spain, as was Return, director Paul Wendkos makes interesting use of backgrounds.
Period is Mexico in the late 1890s, the narrative setting an attempt by Kennedy and his men to rescue a patriot who is attempting to assist helpless and downtrodden peasants.
Cast is well-chosen and Kennedy is a good choice for the Brynner role.
