    Despite great talents and $170 million at Sonnefield's disposal, this film fall flat at being a new kind of western. OK, the tarantula's nice, and some gadgets are cool, and the film does show some creative moments. However, the horrid script and dialogue, ill-defined characters, lack of chemistry, and absolutely lame comedy (with very few exceptions) ultimately kill this film.

Overall, Wild Wild West shows what happens when you get the flash (action, special FX, etc.) right but screw up on the basics (script, dialogue). Ultimately, it's a sore missed opportunity to modernize the western, flushing a good production design down the toilet. Expand

    Didn't seem so bad on my TV. Luckily I had given my brain the evening off. I liked the Jules Verne touches. This is obviously the finest giant mechanized spider movie ever made.

    All concept and no content.

    The humor is, at best, thudding. At its worst, it's breathtakingly stupid and offensive.

    Lots of laughs, lots of fisticuffs, lots of cool toys, lots of stuff getting blown up: Who could ask for anything more from a summer movie?
