    The script by S.S. Wilson and Brent Maddock (Ghost Dad) is so jumbled and the direction so chaotic that it's often hard to tell what's going on -- where, when, and why.
  2. 25
    All concept and no content.
  3. The fusion of cheekiness and deliberately overscaled fantasy never jells.

    Aside from the pesky problems of tone and lazy writing, the whole move is a little choppy.

    The humor is, at best, thudding. At its worst, it's breathtakingly stupid and offensive.
  6. From the look of this film, its prime appreciators will be heavy-metal futurist dweebs.

    Wild Wild West isn't just a bad adaptation of a TV series; it's a bad film.
  8. 10
    The movie is exhausting, utterly without feeling, and pointless -- though Smith looks great in his Western outfit.
  9. 10
    So extremely stupid and incompetent, I doubt that even the most impartial critic could find much to praise.
  10. Wild Wild Waste is more like it. Waste of time, waste of money and colossal waste of talent.
  11. A rambling wreck from computer tech and a helluva souvenir –- that is, for those interested in artifacts representing the American movie at its worst.
