Summary

The fourth of the Magnificent Seven westerns, starring Lee Van Cleef and Stefanie Powers. Chris, now ageing and married, is on the right side of the law and he wants to stay that way. So when an old friend asks for his help in defending a small Mexican town threatened by the bandit de Toro, he refuses. Then Chris's wife is kidnapped and it looks as though history is going to repeat itself.

Review

A star rating of 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.
