The Magnificent Seven (1960)
#46 on my Top 100 List
Westerns are probably my least favorite genre, so it makes sense that the one western on my Top 100 list is a retelling of a Japanese action movie. I really love this movie for the cast as opposed to the story. Yul Brynner would never have been my first choice to play a cowboy, but damn he plays it well. Then you add Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and James Coburn plus a couple others who are less well-known and you have a really kickass group of gunfighters. Action abounds, but be warned - not everyone makes it to the end.
My Netflix rating: 5 stars
