As impressive as the industrial-style special effects may be, they're both too much and not enough for this mild mild West.

It cares far more about herding audiences into theaters than about what they hear or see.

``Wild Wild West'' is a comedy dead zone. You stare in disbelief as scenes flop and die. The movie is all concept and no content; the elaborate special effects are like watching money burn on the screen. You know something has gone wrong when a story is about two heroes in the Old West, and the last shot is of a mechanical spider riding off into the sunset.

The film sacrifices playfulness and humor to concentrate on a relentless display of elaborate but ho-hum gadgets and gizmos.

Very funny film based on a 60s Tv show with Will Smith a very talented actor more orientated I say to teenagers than anyone else
