Revolutionary Quintero has been captured by the Federale. He gets $600 to Max to continue the cause. Bandit and revolutionary Lobero wants him to use the money for guns and ammo, but instead he hires Chris Adams. They put together a new Seven to free Quintero.
The film attempts to ground itself in a sense of social awareness (in part with characters like Bernie Casey’s ex-slave Cassie and the treatment of the peasants they encounter). But the story is less than engaging.
Without Yul Brynner, this film feels like it could be any western. I like George Kennedy, but Chris does not feel like Chris here. The Guns of the Magnificent Seven is just not the return fans needed.
