BLOGGERS REVIEW

ARUL FITTRON (Arul’s Movie Review)

The Magnificent Seven tak pernah menyinggung sama sekali siapa itu karakter-karakternya dengan durasi yang cukup panjang. sehingga, The Magnificent Seven minus akan simpati penonton dan terkesan malas dalam bertutur. Diperparah dengan ending yang menyebalkan. Rating: ★★1/2

DANIEL IRAWAN (Dan at the Movies)

The Magnificent Seven was built well with enough respect to the original until the reckless ending ruined everything. Rating: ★★★

ERLITA PUTRANTI (It Caught My Eyes)

The Magnificent Seven is a surprisingly lengthy entertainment. Had it cut down its duration, it would have been more packed with a tighter pace, and it’d be more enjoyable. Would probably end up as spectacle without substance, but it’ll be better than being bland on both. But hey, at least I got to see assorted eye candies getting dusty and showing how good they are as gunslinger. Or knife thrower. Or archer. Rating: ★★1/2

PASKALIS DAMAR (Sinekdoks)

The Magnificent Seven might have all the advantages of likable cast and characters as well as dynamic action sequences–in which Antoine Fuqua excels–, however, its decision to appear lite as a popcorn entertainment makes it fall short in comparison with grandiosity the original The Magnificent Seven and the Japanese epic it remade, Seven Samurai, been knowing for. Rating: ★★★

RASYID HARRY (Movfreak)

Adegan aksi sejatinya well-made, tapi Fuqua bak kekeringan imajinasi, hanya asal melontarkan ledakan dinamit atau desing peluru di sana sini. Tengok saja klimaks yang diniati sebagai penebus pasca buildup selama kurang lebih 90 menit. Ketegangan sudah barang tentu urung hadir akibat nihilnya kepedulian penonton akan para tokoh, dan makin tak tertolong ketika Fuqua terlampau malas mengkreasi deretan sequence supaya tampak menarik, tak tahu cara memaksimalkan daya pikat tiap aktor kala tengah beraksi–Pratt with extreme coolness cocking his guns or Byung-hun expertly swinging his kinives. Final showdown yang semestinya merupakan puncak segalanya berakhir datar. Jangankan menyamai film klasiknya, untuk menghibur saja The Magnificent Seven gagal. Memang tidak semua hal butuh modernisasi. Rating: ★★1/2

TAUFIQUR RIZAL (CineTariz)

Dengan gersangnya emosi, The Magnificent Seven beruntung memiliki barisan pemain bagus dan klimaks seru yang membuatnya masih bisa dinikmati. Rating: ★★★

TEGUH RASPATI (UlasanPilem)

Seperti kebanyakan film blockbuster ringan, tak ada hal yang benar-benar berkesan atau menggugah dari The Magnificent Seven ini. One-liners yang cukup sporadis dilempar, terkadang terkesan garing. Namun filmnya cukup mengikat perhatian penonton berkat karisma dari para pemain serta kompetensi penyutradaraan sekuens aksi dari Fuqua. Mungkinkah film ini akan menjadi klasik? Kalau ini sih, saya ragu. Rating: ★★★

TEGUH SANTOSO (Reviewsiana)

NA. Rating: ★★1/2
