Guns of the Magnificent Seven (1969)
They’re assembled to help rescue a man from a Mexican prison, a man held under lock and key by a tyrannical military leader. The enemy is many. The odds are heavily stacked against the Seven. They go anyhow. Hell, yeah!
The action is mostly reserved for the finale, but there's a well-paced feeding of excellent dialogue and characterisation prior to that.
It’s perhaps the second best entry in the series. Even if you disagree and all else fails you there’s still Elmer’s amazing score to keep you smiling.
