But somehow, Wild Wild West is dull and leaves you wondering what went wrong.

There is a good scene where Smith fights off a number of bizarre, zombie-like henchmen, but the action is poorly-lit and, like other sections of the film, somewhat confusing.

Wild Wild West is lively adventure that is completely enjoyable!

I went into this movie hoping that it would at least be entertaining and maybe find a few laughs along the way.

Kline is engaging when he finally gets fed up with West.

Boring action-comedy .

boring .

Kenneth Branagh must be the worse thing in this movie, he does so much overacting that it was unbearable.

That part works but the movie doesn't it is stupid, boring, predictable and not all that funny.

I wouldn't waste your time and hard earned cash to watch this film.

I amazed that so many people disliked "Wild Wild West", and even compared it unfavorably with such formula movies as "Enemy of the State", the ultra-predictable "Independence Day", and the long-winded and tedious "Ali".

Don't waste your time with this irrelevant little movie.

His poor acting and basic boredom he brings the viewer ruins any chance of the film being remotely interesting.

Do expect a predictable movie about a mad scientist who wants to conquer the US and has to be stopped by to other madmen, being a black cowboy who 'first shoots, shoots again, shoots some more and then tries to ask some questions' and another mad scientist who wants to plan everything.

It's considered to be almost universally bad, and many people would probably put it up there with Batman & Robin as one of the worst movies ever.

There seems to be an intense, even unreasoning, dislike for this movie among many people.

But those movies were exciting and had somewhat of a plot and were funny.

I liked Wild Wild West, yes that's right I liked it & it has problems but is a fun ride that I found more entertaining I had any right to expect considering Wild Wild West has a really bad reputation.

The mix of futuristic technology and a western background was nightmarish to behold,the plot was BORING, the jokes weren't funny,and the whole concept just seems stupid.

Predictable yet worth watching once .

Hayek's character was completely pointless, and had less than no reason to be there.

) lines and the pointless violence, that they'd manage to squeeze some kind of a plot in there.

WWW is mostly offensive, dull and poorly written.

Arliss is an entertaining villain and I gravitated towards him simply because he sought out to do what I wanted to do, kill Jim West.

It's a surprisingly pretentious performance coming into an extremely stupid movie.

Both movies are too long and too slow to be entertaining.

The gorgeous Salma Hayek is underplayed, and her character is pretty much pointless except to have a good-looking girl in the movie.

6/10 worth watching.

I'm going to get to my likes and dislikes about this film: My likes: I liked how this movie was action packed the fight's were nicely done although most of the action in this movie is done by will smith not kevin kline.

The fun factor was a little slow, a few things were too corny.

Do not try to compare it to the old TV series (I love them) its a completly different style and look, see it as a new movie, just a fun movie, entertaining.

The action is fairly fast paced and doesn't get too bogged down anywhere.

Kevin Kline, even though his funny in every movie I seen him in, I didn't think he that good in this, he was to predictable.

I'll spare the predictable spots for you.

An oxymoron: boring action film.

The action scenes are very exciting and original.

The idea of seeing all those well orchestrated, and at times visually stunning effects against an Old West backdrop was the only refreshing and original element in the film ...

One of the worst movies that I've ever seen, and that's saying a lot!

The idea that the old west could be so futuristic seemed very trite and weak.

It was actually entertaining in a good way.

Action: I can sum up most of the action in four words: Too hard to follow!

This movie had no story, no character developement, and meaningless special effects.

"Charlie's Angels" was also a parody, and it was very entertaining.

"Wild Wild West" is an awkward, odd, and pointless movie.

But the film is incoherent, very confusing at times, and it just appears that the makers just want as many visually stunning set pieces they can in its duration and hope that will cover the ridiculous narrative.

Okay, I liked the RCA dog / megaphone scene but 98% of the audience will miss that because they either have a) fallen asleep b) walked out, or c) have their eyes closed because they can't stand to see a very good TV show made into a very bad 170 million dollar BOMB!

This is one hell of a exciting and fun movie!

Bland characters in a bland story make for a bland experience.

I went to see will smith on the big screen for the first time ever with Men in Black (1997) & it blew my mind i loved his role & the now classic sci-fi action buddy movie & i became a huge Men In Black fan so a couple of years later i was so excited to see this AWESOME sci-fi action take on the western starring my childhood Hero Will Smith & teamed with the same director from Men in Black again, it was so exciting.

Okay, the story is hokey, the acting is occasionally great but mostly ho-hum, and the overall effect is kinda cheesy...

Very Entertaining .

This movie is borderline psychotic, but that's what makes it enjoyable.

to be entertaining.

So I you want be bored to the nth,then you MUST SEE THIS FILM!

The worst movie I have seen in some time.

The jokes are so predictable, particularly with how we know the woman will be real and not Kline in disguise.

All in all, it was an incredible waste of talent (and money).

Most of the jokes are anachronistic in a bad way (unlike the high concept of the series) and the plot is just plain boring.

for the past two summers, we have seen two films take their premise from a popular 60s television show, cast fine actors, throw in intriguing special effects and set designs, and fizzle like an open can of 7-up.

The back story that the sextet of scribes drummed up for James West is equally as contrived.

The music in the film is traditional TV western fare which is bland and inappropriate.

This was a very entertaining movie.

A rambling, boring shambles of a film that's only saving grace is that all involved in making it are truly apologetic for it.

Underrated and Enjoyable .

I know that not all people share my view of this film, but I enjoyed it, so there.

Not here, in WWW, most of the jokes fall flat and the plot is mainly a series of boring action sequences.

Along for the ride is a giant mechanical tarantula, President Grant, and the stunning, gorgeous, lovely, and just plain old hot Salma Hayek.

I mean, some laws of physics are violated, some laws of good taste are violated, but I don't mind, but what really makes this movie a bad one is the weak plot, most of the scenes seem just plain pointless, humorless and/or just plain boring.

" and it got slower and slower until Artemus Gordon's invention showed the professor's last image of General McGrath.

This has to be all of the main actors very worst movie.

Wild Wild West is fun, exciting, and funny.

Slow, derivative, and boring.

Smith was his usual enjoyable self.

The action's too sparse to ever be thrilling, the editing is incompetent (anybody else wonder how that one "indestructible" henchman suddenly met his demise at the end?

Great actors produce zero chemistry and a dead, boring clunker .

And so, I say this was entertaining.

If you ask me, "Wild Wild West" does have some reasonable action sequences, and I definitely did occasionally find myself in mild suspense, but overall, it fails as an action movie, as most of it doesn't work, and is just plain boring.

This movie was so boring I registered just so I could comment.

The is Slow but Some What entertaining .

After an hour into the film, I was bored and slightly mad at myself for wasting $9.50 after ALL my friends had told me to stay away from the film.

It really is a fun, exciting comedy .

Just enjoyable, easy going.

But then - right at the end, while our sore asses were being painfully dragged up from the cinema-seats; One of those delicious gay puns that only Hollywood can pull: Salma Hayek to Smith and Kline (right arm safely tucked under hussie's ditto): "Well, at least you two boys still have each other!

And it was infinitely more enjoyable than that over-hyped pile of trash, The Phantom Menace.

Fun, exciting and humorous .

The TV series wasn't all that great either, and yes, I watched it and enjoyed it regularly.

WWW has a good on-running plot and even when the jokes aren't coming, it is enjoyable.

Overall acceptable, though a bit flat and often far too slow.

Nevertheless, this disastrous, $100-million plus dust raiser ends up as empty-headed as a sun-scorched steer skull in the sand.

The action scenes (or what was supposed to be action) were dull, the dialogue was taken right out of Toy Story, and the story was, well let's just say, YAWN....

In reality the struggle for tone is exacerbated by confusion as to which audience it is intended for.

It is entertaining and funny, with superb acting from Kline and Smith.

However, the music is brilliant, and, being a music fan myself, I enjoyed all of the score from start to finish, and the special effects are particularly enjoyable, culminating in Loveless' giant mechanical spider, which is animated very competently.

`Wild Wild West' uses that lame cliché and just about every other in this over-blown, over-budgeted, over-produced cinematic hemorrhoid.

The acting was great and some of the action was enjoyable alsoBad parts: The story is boring as hell and also most of the movie was just so cheesy that it made me sick.

On the whole Wild Wild West never set out to redefine cinema, it did totally the opposite, a very superficial effort from the Men in Black team, but still very enjoyable.

This film is boring.

A Wild, Wild, Waste of Time .

In the end we could blame the writers, two of whom gave us the very enjoyable action comedy "Tremors" incidentally also set in the dusty west.


Without a doubt, this was the worst movie I have ever seen.

The Actors were Bored.

If you're looking for a fun, exciting, good movie, this is not it.

I'm a fan of the original W3 and found that the differences weren't upsetting; they were refreshing, exciting.

I found the movie to be very unentertaining and boring.

Aside from the giant spider, I honestly can't remember anything that happened in this movie, that's how dull it is.

The plot went nowhere and the characterization hardly subtle or clever.

I was the only one who enjoyed it at the time of its release.

The story starts off slowly and builds to a predictable, boring end.

I stuck it out and this movie is now the worst movie I have ever seen.

Arliss Loveless is a very boring and sometimes irritating villain.

It would seem to be impossible to make a boring movie when your stars are Will Smith and Kevin Kline.

It is worth watching.

I thought the context of the movie was terrible, but the action sequences were entertaining.

Don't waste your time watching this one.

Race is the tiresome focus of too many scenes.

This is the worst movie I have ever seen and I have seen alot of movies.

When you go to see a Will Smith movie, you expect it to be entertaining and fast-paced.

A lifeless, humourless, heartless, crassly exploitive waste of perfectly good celluloid and workstation rendering time.

Not great, but entertaining .

Instead it is one long bore.

Save your money, you'll get more excitement from watching a Brady Bunch rerun.

I was expecting some big climax with explosions but it was instead boring.

It is not "The Ladykillers" (the Alec Guiness version) nor "Kind Hearts and Coronets", but I found it highly enjoyable, and certainly laughed out loud.

Waste of time .

When i seen the mechanic spider, i wonder, how can they do it, it so real and exciting.

The strong qualities in the movie are the special effects (some things were cool, others were banal)and as always Salma Hayak looks great and as always gives it her all performance-wise.

Casting Kenneth Branagh as a legless villain must have seemed comical on paper, but the special effects buffoonery grows as tiresome and tedious as gibes about handicapped people and blacks.

All in all, my wife and I quite enjoyed it, even if it didn't provoke a lengthy discussion on it's cinema-graphic merits at the end.

Wild Wild West is funny and entertaining, and both Will Smith and Kevin Kline are superb in their roles.

For those who saw this film probably really enjoyed it thats why they watched it.

The musical score was also a complete failure; it was flat, unimaginative, boring and unengaging.

However, it is predictable and typical.

The problem is the meandering and confusing script that completely shuts down several times, and gives us some REALLY embarrassing moments (the "touch my breast" scene, poor Wil Smith in drag, the endless "wandering in the desert" sequence) and in the end goes nowhere.

A highly entertaining movie, and one of the years best!

The effects (not just the mechanical spider, but also the removal of Kenneth Branagh's lower half) were very well done, and the film was well-paced, witty and entertaining.

If you waste your money, too, be prepared to watch one disconnected scene after another, a spectrum of improbable (and unfunny) gadgetry, and some rather nasty zero-humor scenes.

A very enjoyable movie .

On the other hand, if you approach this as just an entertaining movie with no expectations for it to be like something else, you will likely enjoy this very much.

I guess the best way to describe this movie is: boring.

It's just a great bit of fun and I'd recommend it for someone looking for an entertaining evening.

I think its funny and its a good movie if you just want a laugh on a boring evening :)

Incredible lightness --- boring.

Save your money and do something productive with 2 hours of your time.

Kevin Kline was enjoyable, though.

While I like Smith and Kline, the film was terrible and slow.

Aside from the casting and insensitivity, this film is simply boring.

This is without a doubt one of the worst films i have ever seen the plot is terrible, the movie is too dumb for adults and too boring for children!

This is one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time.


In WWW, you only had to watch the first scene after the credits to get a sense of, "uh-oh" (the very first scene, of a man hunted by a flying metal disc, was actually intriguing).

Kevin Kline is wasted, Will Smith is uninteresting, Selma Hayek is tacked on, and Kenneth Branagh is shrill.

I had really lost interest early in the film and found the whole thing a mind numbingly boring experience.

Its just so boring.

Save your money and go see something else, anything else.

Without a doubt it was the most memorable, stunning, wicked, and delicious moment of this movie as a whole.

Wild Wild West is an entertaining piece of film that showcases the popularity of Will Smith.

The action scenes (or what was supposed to be action) were dull, the dialogue was taken right out of Toy Story, and the story was, well let"s just say, YAWN....

More like a Wild Wild BORE!

The special effects are ridiculous the music is so boring (fitting to the hole movie) and it would seem that Barry Sonnenfeld's mind is completely disconnected.

the worst movie I have ever seen .

Finally, the music is completely forgettable and repetitive.

I found the first half hour so slow and uneventful that I was soon suffering from extreme boredom, the small amount of material in the scenes nowhere near enough in quantity to keep us interested for such a long amount of time.

This is a summer film, it's supposed to be fun and exciting, and fun and exciting it is!

All the stunts and fight scenes were so contrived and badly choreographed I found myself constantly shaking my head.

As for the movie I enjoyed it as well as my grandchildren Any thing that Will Smith is a part of is all right with me.

An utterly humorless, pointless, soul-bereft movie.

probably the worst movie I've ever seen.

Preposterous and silly plot with predictable mayhem that results in one of the biggest over produced pieces of junk to be released all year.

The result is a multi-multi-million dollar debacle that leaves studios searching for answers and audiences shell-shocked into seeking out their entertainment along the more audacious pathway of off-Hollywood, independent filmmaking – the single positive outcome of these dull, empty enterprises.

It was bad, boring and very forgettable.

Kline's performance is nothing to write home about, but he does his best with the mundane role he has been given here.

In short this is the worst movie I have ever seen,and it makes the Awful Men in Black 2 look like a classic.

I found her character to be, somewhat pointless and underused.

waste of time, money and talent .

Sadly, this movie is a waste of time.

Parts of it were entertaining and funny, and the crowd seemed to be having a good time.

Leave it to Barry Sonnenfeld the director of GET SHORTY and MEN IN BLACK to do a faithful and exciting new version of the classic 1960's t.

*Yawn* .

Not to mention, waste of my time), lack of continuity.

Yawn .

But when I left the theater I really couldn't remember any particular scenes (except one of Selma) and didn't have a good or bad feeling.

While that is true in some parts, the banter between the two is enjoyable enough.

Never have I been so offended at a movie for leading me to believe it was a Western, meaning the action was nowhere near exciting and the music does not lead to a sense of urgency.

Best or Worst Movie .

But other then its extremeily untrue to the show I liked it because it was enjoyable to watch.

All of the humor is trite and painfully forced.

I entered the Cinema expecting rubbish, what I got was an entertaining film.

Watching paint dry was more interesting.

However, having now seen the film, I am pleased to report that I really enjoyed it.

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

If you don't take it too seriously, Its a fun and entertaining film.

Along for the ride is a giant mechanical tarantula, President Grant, and the stunning, gorgeous, lovely, and just plain old hot Salma Hayek.

The conflict between the Kline and Smith characters feels totally contrived and needless.


The opening credits of this film were highly entertaining, and the closing credits featuring Will's WWW rap was fun as well.

I thought that this was a very funny, slick, and entertaining movie.

There were some pretty entertaining fight scenes, and usually if the action is good, I'm ok, because it's a genre movie.

Scene after scene marches by and every joke ends with a dull thud.

I saw the seemingly disjointed relationship between Jim West and Artemus Gordan as nothing more than two people with dissimilar backgrounds and opinions being thrust together for the first time, and gradually becoming friends.

Rivaling it is James West's escape from a lynch party, and the final assault on the giant tarantula will have you yawning.

Too loud, too in-your-face, predictable, and please no more computer effects.

This is the most cynical and contrived form of film-making, the packaging of elements to excite a broad demographic, the synergistic Burger King tie-ins, music videos etc for maximum market coverage.

I enjoyed it.

I may however have missed some interesting moments because I actually fell asleep for a short period!!

"Wild Wild West" seems to have gotten a really bad reputation as one of the worst movies ever made.

However, I still dragged myself out when it hit the local cinema yesterday afternoon and was glad I did ...

Will Smith is himself minus the funny jokes, and Kevin Kline was a victim of the bad direction and the boring dialog.

Worst movie of the year, nope .

Kenneth Branagh is entertaining in a couple of scenes; at least he tries awfully hard.

I walked out of the theater thinking "How did the trailer make this movie look so good?

As a fan of Kline, Smith and Hayek I found this enjoyable enough to justify matinee price.

Smith character is so dull, you hope somebody kill him off after the first half an hour.

It's hammy, it's cheesy, it's predictable - what were you expecting from a movie with an 80" tarantula.

Emmet Walsh: Pointless and utterly stupid adventure that boasts nothing more than a budget.

Kline hams it up as a drag dressing and invention tinkering but otherwise bland Artemus.

But to me, what really matters is, was it a waste of time?

It's a great show, an exciting movie with terrific actors (Kevin Kline and Kenneth Brannagh were excellent in their roles) and impressive FX.

One of this year's best hyped, worst movies.

There isn't one good thing to say about this film because it is so completely and utterly boring.

It was on Monday evening, and it was exciting to see a movie two days before the general public.

This was one of the worst movies in a long line of bad remakes of TV shows.

I think the movie deserved exactly what it received, but I also believe that some of the fighting and gun play were good for entertaining children of younger ages.

Kevin Kline can be wonderfully goofy - see "A Fish Called Wanda" - or, if the script is bad enough, he can be the boring, two-dimensional caricature he is in this movie.

I fell asleep half way through it first time watching it, second time i actually managed to stay awake only because i wanted to see if the movie was worth at least an eight...

Wild West star Will smith was good but not great; because I found some scenes boring and it drag along to slow.

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

One of the worst movies of the summer .

Patton Oswalt's pick for worst movie ever.

The lucky streak that has seen both Barry Sonnenfeld and Will Smith hit box office gold for their last several movies apart ("Addams Family Values"/"Get Shorty" & "ID4"/"Enemy of the State" - respectively) and one together ("Men in Black") comes to a scene chewing, badly scored and just plain dull end the Fourth of July, 1999.

I suppose the bottom line for me was that I was hoping for an entertaining film of the same calibre as 'Men in Black'.

And the climax with the mechanical spider was badly drawn out, not helped by the poor design of the spider itself.


Will Smith was on the mark, Kevin Kline was on the mark, the story was pretty good, and the visuals were stunning.

Also, it became exceedingly slow going and boring.

Very Entertaining .

perhaps one of the worst movies i have ever seen -- boring, cliched, poorly acted and cheesey affects.

This was actually a film worth watching.

It's an action packed comedy that needs to be seen in it's full glory.

When you combine the incredible acting ability of Kenneth Brannagh, the inestimatable humor skills of Kevin Kline, and the sheer charisma and style of Will Smith, not to mention the capably quirky directing of Barry Sonnenfeld, you would expect a very entertaining movie.

The special effects are overblown to say the least, plus the plot is really predictable.

A great big budget summer action packed fun adventure with a nice comical duo pairing of Will Smith & Kevin Kline,who have great chemistry & i would've loved to see those guys again in a sequel!!.

As a light hearted buddy film, with the fantasy twist we all expect from The Wild Wild West, it proves to be an entertaining romp.

Nevertheless, I wouldn't say this is the worst movie ever, as I don't mind to watch it again on video with friends (just to make fun and comments out of it....

I do admit though, Salma Hayek's acting was weak and made her character boring.

I think it is worth watching once because of the jokes.

I cannot imagine there being a bigger waste of talent and money being put on film in the next few months.

Save your money, go see something else.

Will Smith is brilliant in it as is Kevin Kline and I still watch this when it is on TV now because of how enjoyable I find this film.

Before the theme song, its direction and Stevie Wonder's appearance—the girls' looking and dancing were fair enough and more enjoyable than many sequences of the movie itself.

I would like to be perfectly placid about this movie in saying that although the acting and cinematography was terrible, the overall stunts/ action was pretty entertaining.

I started falling asleep during it, the sheer laziness of the film must have been making me feel tired.

"Wild Wild West" has perhaps the most uninspiring soundtrack I have heard in a long time.

The action scenes are done in a very boring way and the science fiction "toys" and "gadgets" are simply idiotic at some points.

In short, don't waste your time.

No plot, no character development, nothing remotely funny here.

Both Will Smith and Kevin Kline do fairly good jobs acting, but the characters are too boring to enjoy.

Pointless and awful .

The background score was uninspiring.

So boring!

Do not see it, save your money.

"Wild Wild West" is jaw-droppingly dull.

you know, I went and saw this movie with a mate of mine and my wife, it was totally awesome, such a fun movie full of humour - we all enjoyed it.

Branagh seems to be having quite the fun time in this role and some scenes involving Loveless are entertaining particularly his introduction and his speech to the foreign delegates aboard his spider.

What a waste of time for Will Smith and Kevin Kline!

Funny and entertaining.

As far as I'm concerned, Smith & Kline make an entertaining team and are perfectly suitable for this movie.

I have watched it several times and it is a very entertaining action/comedy/fantasy.

Luckily the choice of Bernstein gives the picture the music it deserves, boring music.

it's funny,exciting and action packed.

It is a very entertaining movie with impressive special effects and creative gadgets.

If you're looking for an enjoyable way to spend two hours, try checking this one out.

Smith has an engaging persona and WWW capitalizes on that factor.

I left the theater feeling sorry for Kevin Kline and Will Smith, for associating themselves with such garbage.

Waste of Time .

but an entertaining film in a number of spots and fun to watch ONCE.

Funny, entertaining and...

Wild Wild West is a visually stunning film, from Michael Ballhaus's photography to Bo Welch's production design.

Worst movie I've seen in a while.

Not only is it unfunny and annoying, but it accomplishes the incredible feats of making Will Smith unlikeable and making Kevin Kline seem boring.

Probably the biggest waste of talent and money since "Ishtar".

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It's downright confusing as to how such enormously talented people could come together and go so awry in their endeavors.

The idea of seeing all those well orchestrated, and at times visually stunning effects against an Old West backdrop was the only refreshing and original element in the film ...

WILD WILD WEST succeeds because it keeps the viewer on the edge-of-the-seat.

Don't waste your money.

I thought it was funny, exciting, cool & very enjoyable to watch & if some of the goofier moments had been toned down then I think more people would have liked it.

But Sonnenfeld learned a lot from Danny DeVito and the Cohen Brothers when he was their cinematographer, how to make a fun and exciting film.

With the central dramatic hook gone, WILD WILD WEST is reduced to being a formulaic action film.

This movie is a waste of time!

All up, a most enjoyable movie of great richness.

This was the biggest waste of time.

It was a hot July day, and the theater was well air-conditioned, which is all that prevented this experience from being a total waste of money.

I fell asleep in the middle of it and missed much of Salma Hayek.

But if u ignore these flaws, you got a very enjoyable movie.

Unfortunately, it's surrounded by so much pointless film.

The effects in the movie are nothing to right home about, and the action scenes left me bored.

Selma Hayek is fine but woefully underutilized, and all players are at the mercy of an unfunny, ham-fisted and sometimes tedious script.

a little preachy, but enjoyable nonetheless.

A plotless mess that exists it some sort of limbo-history, where impossible and dull machines slog across a computer generated West (though most of the movie seems to happen in Washington or Louisiana).

Better to watch paint dry.

Star Will Smith teams up with director Barry Sonnenfeld (MEN IN BLACK) once again in this entertaining motion picture.

This had to be one the Worst movie's that I've seen in a long time.

I mean, the initial idea sounds so crazy that it's immediately compelling.

An incredible waste of time and money.

I'm not exactly sure what was supposed to be good about this movie, but I was bored for the entire 45 minutes I forced myself to endure this thing.

I'm not saying the film is awful, in fact most of the material and acting is absolutely fine, it's just that Sonnenfield really should have shortened the film by about 30 minutes, making it far more enjoyable.

They're meant to be enjoyable ...

"Wild Wild West" qualifies as one of the worst movies ever adapted from a groundbreaking TV show.

Waste of Time .

v series, so you cant call it a cliche.

The plot was utterly incidental, a routine and tiresome paper chase across the old west to find a bad guy with a ridiculous bad guy world domination plan.

The love triangle is underdeveloped, pointless, and stupid.

The last film I saw directed by Barry Sonnenfield before seeing his latest film, "Wild Wild West" was his adaptation of the popular Elmore Leonard novel, "Get Shorty," a superbly funny and enjoyable film boasting a good cast including John Travolta and Gene Hackman and a film which is still undoubtedly Sonnenfield's best.

and ORLANDO, FL When you go to see a Will Smith movie, you expect it to be entertaining and fast-paced.

Save your money, you'll get more excitement from watching a Brady Bunch rerun.


This movie has my vote for worst movie of the summer.

I found it very entertaining and funny.

Worst movie ever.

There were some very entertaining gadgets in here, especially the robots.

You will thank me for saving you time that could be better spent picking your nose, butt, or insert lame, waste of time activity.

Not as funny as MiB or Bad Boys, but he is entertaining.

This movie is officially the worst movie i have ever seen.

Wild Wild West is very predictable.

See the trailer, save your money.

Wild Wild Waste of My Time .

Her bu.. Sorry!.. Her performance was so entertaining !

Slow it down.

The film DID have a strong start, but it gets just a little boring afterwards.

For me, this was a very enjoyable film, and it has a giant mechanical spider, which is really quite awesome.

Lots of humor and some very entertaining situations and great one liners.

Save your money and watch the Wild Wild West video on MTV a couple of times - you'll have more fun.

It is by turns boring, offensive, overdone, and plain bad.

It was boring mostly, and stupid.

The script obviously was trying to appeal to the Intelligence Impaired, and those of us with an IQ were left bored to tears.

I found it, very entertaining, despite its huge flaws.

Nothing happens, and it can be very hard to watch.

I think Will Smith and Kevin Kline have an amazing on screen inter-action with each other, scenes that are mostly conversation are kept entertaining by their delivery of some great lines.

I enjoyed it and I believe if you haven't seen it you should.

I saw Austin Powers the week before and fell asleep...

Unfortunately, this is not remotely as exhilarating as any of those films, and while often inventive and engaging, it pretty much falls flat.

You can bash every movie for faults but what you should really be judging is whether it was entertaining or not.

Painfully Awkward, Predictable, and Horribly Written .

Considering the rich possibilities offered by the original series' ideas, this dull, misguided movie is an outright heartbreak, along the lines of the similarly botched 'Avengers' train wreck.

Save your money and watch it on cable.

And the story is as uninvolving and meandering as they come,likely to bore the younger audience it was apparently meant to appeal to.

Don't waste your money.

Yawn, nothing to think about in this movie.

Well, maybe the story is a bit too far fetched but what the hell; I enjoyed it.

And the classic last shot (Yes, it's so classic and rare to end a movie by this pointless question and answer).

Waste of time and money .

In fact, the music is dull.

Despite a few dull moments, the script is witty and amusing, and the characters, absurd as they are, are always consistent.

So much hype for an empty, unfunny movie where expensive SFX's try to imitate the likes of ''Independence Day'' and ''MIB'' to woo unsuspecting viewers like me in theaters.

I found the humour, plot and acting uninteresting.

Well, while not the greatest movie of all time, I found enough to be entertaining.

The film is entertaining and the plot has some surprises.

The beautiful Selma Hayek, always a pleasure to watch was dreadful and dull in this feature and the magnificent Kenneth Branaugh, was a true dud in this movie.

I wish I could say something worked in this but sadly I cannot, all the humor fails to land, the action is unengaging, the attempts to be 'edgy', 'hip', and 'exciting' feel too forced and unearned, the tone is all over the place - is it an action/adventure or a comedy?

I've walked out of the theater on two movies in my life.

I actually walked out of the movie before it was over, and I suspect that audiences everywhere will experience a similar impulse.

There were some good jokes and visual gags, and a bunch of fascinating 'steampunk' inventions.

It may not be among the worst Hollywood has to offer, or even the worst movie adaptation of a TV series(that honor goes to McHale's Navy).

Appeal--2: It's boring.

Don't waste your money!

Well, let's just pretend that I fell asleep for the part where it's explained that time travelers from the distant future settled in the old west and brought their advanced technology to the past.

It was all too predictable and while Wil Smith is a good actor, someone else should have played Jim West.

I was so bored out of my mind, I tore apart my soda cup to keep my brain from melting away.

It was exactly what i thought it would be like,it had beautiful stunning scenery,cool gadgets,a massive mechanical spider,amazing action scenes,beautiful stunning sets & the highest production quality & a cool evil fun villain & Will Smith being the coolest he's ever been on screen in my opinion.

Smith is even more boring and less character than when he was in ID4.

But it was entertaining and funny in the "completely-bad-brainless-junk-to-waste-an-hour-and-a-half" sort of way.

This movie is a boring, stupid excuse for a movie.

Instead, I saw a disjointed movie with no plot, no humor, and no resemblance to the original series.

funny,action packed,exciting .

I've read several reviews on this film, and all say that it was horrible, but with this sort of film it's not meant to be taken as seriously as it was, it has some good moments, however the bit I found most annoying with this film was Selma Hayek's' continuous "oh he's so" when referring to Jim West (will smith) it was tedious, it could've been so much funnier (and less annoying) just near the end she could said "impetuous, courageous, and graceful, all he needs now is patience and he's the perfect man" this would've been a lot more funnier.

The movie kinda dragged, and I found myself looking at my watch many times throughout the movie, which wasn't a good sign.

Here's where Smith's limitations show: all the kidding around make for a pointless story.

It looked eventually naive and pointless.

Now, let's be frank, the plot is basic at best and predictable most of the way through the film, the script is abysmal, and the general feel of the movie is a great concept which was executed at a sub-par level.

With good actors playing stupid and pointless people.

With all the wonderful superstars cast in potentially delicious roles, it was more than a mild disappointment to find that it was technically brilliant but so empty!

It just seemed to fall, and some confusing storylines that seem to make you go through a maze.

Don't waste your time on this - go see the Mummy for action or South park for comedy.

I enjoyed it a good deal.

Everything went too fast and it was difficult to follow exactly what was going on.

If you're going for the song, save your money and buy the single (not the full length cd)!

These characters are so boring and cliché that gags have to be used.

The dialogue is witty and well written, the film fast paced and some visuals are really awesome.

No plot, not plot twists (what was there to twist?!!
