Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai (1954) is westernized as The Magnificent Seven. As its unforgettable theme music plays, in the back ground there are gun slinging shadows that are depicted over a red background which tells you what the movie is going to depict. though jam-packed with action, the magnificent seven's screenplay pauses long enough to flesh out each of its characters, allowing the audience to pick their own favorites.the different settings show the life of a gun slinging cowboy. the sounds of gun shots and the sound of exaggeration when people die brings a different affect to this movie. although at the end of the movie when the vilin dies his blood is really red and favors ketchup which brings a cheesy affect to the movie.during the movie each character has a certain style about them wich comes out in there fighting style or shooting style. the character that specializes with knifes dresses has a different attitude than the rest. also the state of the mexican ton shows how helpless the mexicans are.
