I just saw 2016’s The Magnificent Seven, probably the most politically correct Western of all time… (Spoilers!)
The Seven consist of…
1. An African American.
2. A Native American.
3. A Mexican.
4. An Asian.
5-7. Three Whites.
In the end only the No. 1-3 representing minority groups of America are left standing.
The character Jack Horne who once made a living out of hunting and scalping Native Americans is killed by a Native American and Horne’s death is avenged by his Native American gang member.
It shows Goodnight Robicheaux, a Confederate veteran and the “Angel of Death” realize the horrors of war and refusing to kill at the beginning of the movie.
For gender equality, the Seven are hired by a woman who also becomes the one who shoots the main villain in the end, which none of the Seven can achieve.
The director is African American, the music is done by a Jew, while those with screenplay and cinematography are of Italian descent.
