The Glorious Seven・Reloaded

UCM.ONE is releasing the film “The Glorious Seven – Reloaded” by Harald Franklin on the film label “M-Square Pictures” in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Franklin already made a name for himself with the film “Heroes and Cowards“. Inspired by the classic “The Seven Samurai” (1954) by Akira Kurosawa and the resulting US western remake “The Glorious Seven” by John Sturges, this modern mercenary actor brings back memories of the glorious action movies of the 80s, in which “The Bold Seven” stood side by side with e.g. numerous “The Wild Geese Coming” adaptations.

The film was shot at locations in Costa Rica, in Spain, in Italy (Rome) and in the Ukraine.

Synopsis:

Former military commander David Guerra (Jerry Kwarteng) is hired by shady millionaire Anthony Levin (Fernando Carrera) to rescue his wife Valentina, kidnapped by Javier Martinez, the leader of a guerrilla group. Guerra, who knows Martinez from previous military encounters, recruits six men from his former special unit to help him do the impossible: seven against 700 guerrilleros who are well entrenched in their headquarters. Driven only by their courage and unrestrained will, the Seven start the hopeless and bloody quest, in which they finally learn the true reasons for their mission…
