7 gunmen, for approximately 2.5 reasons, fight on behalf of a town they don't actually care about.

Fair. I mean.. it's just fair. Why bother with a remake if it's not going to even attempt to be better? It's a knockoff of the 1960 version set in California United States. Recommended for fans of westerns, but only so you can say that you saw it..

As a commentary on Edward Snowden or WikiLeaks or some such, a list, that somehow exists, is out in the clear and being hunted by various spies.

It would have made a huge difference had this not been portrayed as a flashback/debriefing. Because of this complete failure in storytelling, there was no sense of risk at all; an important part of a spy movie like this.

The Trade Federation blockades a peaceful planet, and decisive action is required to bring political and military strength to bear.

An astonishing improvement on the original. Even though it's lower visual quality than it's original can be, it's worth a watch. Very highly recommended especially to fans of the original trilogy who were disappointed by this new trilogy.
