Perhaps I'm too predisposed to team-based stories because of all my time following the X-Men comics, TV shows and films in my youth. The Magnificent Seven is one of the finest examples of a team-based adventure, exceeded only by the film on which it is based, The Seven Samurai. The characters were more compelling to me and the story a bit more glamorous than the story of two unlikable cads trying to execute and get away with the perfect crime. I'm probably dazzled by the scenery and flash with The Magnificent Seven, but I'll put entertainment over artistic creativity and strong performances more often than not.

I'm also picking the more compelling and glamorous one, although normally I pick artistic creativity and strong performances over entertainment :)
