    Synopsis


    Wild Wild West
    Yet another TV series is revived for the big screen, as Will Smith and Kevin Kline join forces as James T. West and Artemus Gordon, the most sophisticated government agents of the 1860's, in the film adaptation of The Wild Wild West. West and Gordon represent two opposite ends of the personality scale: West is a smooth-talking charmer and man of action who prefers to shoot first and ask questions much, much later; while Gordon is intensely methodical and cerebral, with a genius for gadgets and mechanical innovations. They're brought together by no less an authority than the President of the United States to track down an evil genius named Dr. Arliss Loveless (Kenneth Branagh). Loveless was once an honored military leader and inventor until one of his schemes went awry and left him paralyzed from the waist down. Driven mad by the experience, Loveless is determined to get revenge on the United States by assassinating the President, using a 60-foot tall mechanical spider. Assisting Loveless is a team of beautiful female criminals, Miss East (Bai Ling), Amazonia (Frederique Van Der Wal), Munitia (Musetta Vander) and Miss Lippenreider (Sofia Eng). As the initially suspicious West and Gordon learn to work together, they also find themselves helped by an attractive woman, Rita Escobar (Salma Hayek), who has her own bone to pick with Loveless. Wild Wild West reunites star Will Smith with director Barry Sonnenfeld, who previously worked together on the hit Men In Black (1997). Wild Wild West features a hip-hop theme song from one-time Fresh Prince Smith, along with a more traditional Western score from composer Elmer Bernstein. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      What was that

      Posted

      There are so many things wrong with this movie, so lets start at plot. So this movie is a funny way in telling the discovery of the secret service, but its in the 1860s with no electricity. No electricity, which means that all those CGI machines that was in movie were not only ridiculous, but also a waste of time. Since we are talking about the 1860s, last time I checked the history books most (if not all) black men were still trying to fight off slavery and not trying to be an agents for the government. I could be wrong, though. This movie was boring from the first frame until the end. Too many different things trying to work out at an age were the U.S. was more forcused on a war than fighting off one crazy handicaped villian.

      Not Bad Considering

      Critics absolutely despised this film, often referring to it as 'Wild, Wild, Worst.' However, I have to disagree wholeheartedly with them, as I found it to be rather humorous. This movie isn't supposed to take itself too seriously, and for those who are expecting the same kind of material that was seen on the old tv show, you may be disappointed. Nevertheless, I still recommend this movie and always laugh when thinking of my favorite quote of the film by Dr. Arliss Loveless, when he's talking about his plan for the new United States under his command, and refers to it as 'The United Divided.'
