    It`s a whole new west. July `99
    Certificate: PG-13
    Running Time: 105 mins

    Release Date:

    If you think special government agent James West is fast with a six-shooter, wait`ll he lays a quip on you!

    Megahit star Will Smith plays West, reuniting with Men in Black director Barry Sonnenfeld in an effects-loaded, shoot-from-the-lip spectacular. Kevin Kline plays fellow agent and crackerjack inventor Artemus Gordon, teamed with West on a daring assignment: Stop legless Dr. Arliss Loveless (Kenneth Branagh) and his diabolical plot for a Disunited States of America. Salma Hayek is mysterious adventuress Rita Escobar. And all manner of geared-up 1860s gadgets - from belt-buckle derringers to surprise-packed billiard balls to a walking, eight-story, steam-and-steel tarantula - help make Wild Wild West a Wow Wow West!

    9 / 10
    The Sickly Sweet Wil Smith again being Wil Smith this time he has more attitude and is slightly cooler than he was in ID4 or MIB.
    Great ideas, great stunts, great gunplay great dialog. especially between wil and kevin kline and between will and kenneth brannagh they are let down by a weak script that runs out oif steam,
    This jules Verne version of a comedy western promises alot but just falls short!

    The sound is great especially that 80ft hydrolic tarantula teaming over your head.
    And the video is on point... the extras are ok
    but the commentry???? is Barry Sonnenfeld serious with that voice? the commentry is usually my favorite extra but he droned me to sleep!
    Having said that, the film is like nothing I`ve seen before and I`d still reccomend it!
