Several years after the end of the Civil War, U.S. Army Captain James West (Will Smith) and U.S. Marshal Artemus Gordon (Kevin Kline) find themselves unwillingly teaming up to capture General "Blood-Bath" McGrath (Ted Levine), a renegade Southern general who has been trading kidnapped scientists for weapons with a mysterious partner.

Tracking McGrath to New Orleans via the last image in the eyes of a decapitated scientist, West and Gordon discover the identity of their true foe: Dr. Arliss Loveless (Kenneth Branagh), an ex-Confederate scientist now confined to a wheelchair. This point is driven home when they witness Loveless' newest invention, a tank, slay McGrath's entire regiment.
Now, the two must combine West's shoot-'em-up skills and Gordon's super-advanced inventiveness to stop a racist madman and his giant, mechanical spider from kidnapping President Grant (also Kevin Kline) and taking over the United States of America.
The review of this Movie prepared by James Craver
Based on the 1960s classic TV show, the movie features Will Smith taking on the demanding role of Jim West. The movie contains lots of cool gadgetry that makes it an 1800s-meets-21st-century kind of film. The crew that made this film do a very nice job making it look like the United States in the 1800s, complete with a portrayal of Ulysses S. Grant.
