The Magnificent Eleven, released in 2013, is a British comedy-drama film directed by Jeremy Wooding, starring Sean Pertwee, Robert Vaughn, Josh O'Connor, and many others. It is a modern adaptation of the classic Western film The Magnificent Seven. The story follows a group of misfits who come together to save a struggling community center in the heart of East London, owned by a former professional football player, Tramplayne (played by Robert Vaughn).

The group of misfits includes a debt collector, a former football player, and a conman, who come together under the guidance of Tramplayne to form a football team to represent the local community. However, they soon realize that in order to keep the community center open, they need to raise a significant amount of money.

The solution comes in the form of an invitation to a local football tournament with a £10,000 prize money, which the team sees as their opportunity to save the community center. But, there's a catch – the tournament is for a five-a-side football tournament and the boys have never played together, nor do they possess the skills to compete at this level.

To make matters worse, the tournament is being organized by a group of criminals who have their own plans for the prize money. In order to come out on top, the Magnificent Eleven will have to face off against some fierce competition and some old rivals, who will stop at nothing to win the prize money and to see the community center shut down.

The Magnificent Eleven is a story of friendship, camaraderie, and the importance of coming together to make a difference. Throughout the film, the characters are faced with challenges and setbacks, but they never give up hope. Instead, they come together to find solutions and support one another through thick and thin.

The film is a tribute to the timeless Western classic, The Magnificent Seven, with nods to its characters, themes, and motifs. The film also draws inspiration from classic British comedies, like The Full Monty and Bend It Like Beckham, to deliver a unique blend of humor, drama, and action.

The performances in The Magnificent Eleven are exceptional, with each actor bringing their A-game to the table. Sean Pertwee delivers a magnetic performance as the debt collector, Dean, who is struggling to make ends meet while juggling a troubled relationship with his daughter. Robert Vaughn, who starred in the original Magnificent Seven, lends his legendary acting chops to the role of Tramplayne, the wise and lovable former football player.

The newcomers in the cast, including Josh O'Connor, who plays the conman, and Arinze Kene, who plays the former football player, also deliver standout performances. Their chemistry and camaraderie on screen are heartwarming and bring a lot of humor to the film.

The film also features an excellent soundtrack, composed by Richard Hawley, which perfectly captures the working-class spirit of East London.

Overall, The Magnificent Eleven is a fun, heartwarming, and inspiring film that celebrates the power of community and the importance of coming together. It's a film that will make you laugh, cry, and root for the underdog, all while delivering a timely message about the importance of standing up for what's right.

The Magnificent Eleven is a 2016 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.4.
