Wild Wild West Review
by Ross Anthony
The opening sequence brings back memories of the TV series it recreates on the big screen. Not only is Jim West back, but now he's black! I absolutely love that! Others may criticize feature film remakes of 50/60/70's TV shows for changing character...more

Will Smith, what were you thinking when you signed on to do Barry Sonnenfeld's WILD WILD WEST? After reading the script by the writing committee of S. S. Wilson, Brent Maddock, Jeffrey Price and Peter S. Seaman, why did you go ahead? Surely someone as...more

Summer movies are, by nature, dumb affairs that are usually made for some quick enjoyment and to make money. Wild Wild West, the latest Will Smith affair, follows much the same formula, except that it is dumber and less enjoying than most summer movies....more

Last summer, a feature-length version of The Avengers hit theaters to the tune of a unanimous critical panning. Based on the famous 60ís television show, the film was an enormous box-office flop and a huge disappointment for Warner Bros. A year later,...more

A lot of people had it in for Wild Wild West the minute they saw the first trailer. They didn't like the western meets Jules Verne gimmickry. They assumed the horrible Will Smith-ization of the Stevie Wonder classic "I Wish" was representative of the...more

Imagine putting both Addams family movies together, adding a heap of sexual innuendo, and placing the effects of Men in Black on top of it. Now imagine taking the dry wit out of all these movies, adding an extreme amount of violence, ethnical slurs, and...more

If you haven't plunked down your hard-earned money yet for "Wild Wild West," the latest summer holiday offering from Will Smith, let me say right now that your money will be better spent on a Starbuck's Frappacino or on a Ben & Jerry's Sundae. These...more

I am continually amazed at movies like this. That some producer would waste an abundance of talent and money on a script as abysmal as this one is mind-boggeling, but it seems to happen a lot nowadays. "Wild Wild West" is a beautifully filmed, well...more

Warner Bros., in an attempt to get their own Men In Black style of movie, had managed to lasso in some big names (actor Will Smith and director Barry Sonnenfeld, the duo behind MIB's success) in order to get their own Fourth of July blockbuster, a...more

'Wild Wild West' saturates the screen with intense silliness and deliberately attempts to be the ultimate summer movie. Noisy, filled with special effects, and full of in jokes from other aspects of pop culture, the film begins rather poorly but picks...more

And, of course, the writers six are credited, two for the story and four for the screenplay, a bad sign have, in their infinite wisdom, sought to "improve" on the concept of the '60s TV series. more
