Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

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.
