Review

Our Score
Well, not really. This is the fourth and last outing for the famous title (until the original was remade in 2016), and, as in the previous sequel, no members of the original cast are to be found. Still, Lee Van Cleef makes a perfectly acceptable substitute for Yul Brynner and the theme remains true to the original's concept. Here the bandits kidnap Van Cleef's wife and the seven are rounded up to seek vengeance. Mariette Hartley and Stefanie Powers provide stronger-than-usual support, but the real star is still Elmer Bernstein's pulsating score.

Summary

The one-time leader of the gunslinging band, now a marshal, turns down an old ally's call for help in dealing with a gang of Mexican bandits. However, when the desperados kill his friend and his own wife, the lawman puts together a new team and sets out to take revenge. Western sequel, with Lee Van Cleef, Stefanie Powers, Mariette Hartley and Michael Callan.
