I felt entertained by this.
It is a very bonkers film, though it actually works stupidly well in my opinion – the steampunk theme helps it of course. Will Smith and Kevin Kline are a good pairing as West and Gordon. Kenneth Branagh (Arliss) is amusing, I rate his character’s design too.
I will say the effects around Smith and Kline haven’t aged gracefully, but for everything else around them it still looks quite nice. I enjoyed the train shenanigans in particular. Salma Hayek (Rita) is kinda pointless in this, she’s basically just there for gratuitous sexual reasons.
The film does also try to cram in an (obviously positive) message regarding racists and the such, which doesn’t really fit and isn’t as developed as could’ve been. ‘Wild Wild West’ is at its best when it’s being amusing.
A brainless watch. I’d, personally, recommend it – though a lot of people would evidently disagree with me.
Barry Sonnenfeld’s Wild Wild West is a film that I have avoided for over 15 years. I have no frame of reference with the source materials, but even though I’m a big Westerns fan, it wasn’t this, or the critical pounding it got on release, that kept me away. It was the original trailers for it, it just looked like a garbled over budgeted mess – which it kinda is.
However, that’s not to say there isn’t fun to be had, because for all its many failings (poor effects, poor script, waste of a strong cast, superficiality), there is some verve and swagger, excitement, Will Smith’s likability and some splendid gadgets. Having very low expectations no doubt helped me out, but I would hardly call this a 1/10 type of film. I say chill out with a beer, turn the home cinema speakers up and just roll with it, because thinking about it too deeply could possibly make you angry… 5/10
Not Bad At All, If You Don’t Have A Stiff Upper Lip!
According to all the bad reviews I had read on the Internet, I had to check this movie out for myself. Well, I have a sense of humor and I found this movie to be OK. Indeed, I agree with those Internet critics who gave this movie a favorable review.
Some Internet critics complained about the technological sophistication; but according to more in depth reviews of history I found the tech’ portrayals in the movie to be thoroughly accurate. For example, our mechanical knowledge as a society has not dramatically improved since then, and the flying bicycle! Well, the plane “as we know it took form shortly there after. As well, there were no complaints about the gadgetry of the original ‘Wild, Wild West’
On the other hand, I do believe some people may have gotten offended by some of the blunt language that people in America used publicly at that time, as well the portrayal of prostitution.
I do think Will Smith gave a more comedic and mature performance in this movie than in ‘Men in Black’ and ‘Enemy of the State.’
