A dynamic duo has to save the world Wild Wild West: It�s a whole new West

Based (loosely) on the 1960s Robert Conrad television vehicle, WILD WILD WEST is a classic buddy film: One man relies solely on his guns (or fists), while the other relies on intellect.

James West is a man of action, a Civil War hero, a ladies' man. Artemus Gordon is a wacky inventor and master of disguise.

The team is created when the world's leading scientists are kidnapped by a diabolical madman named Dr. Arliss Loveless (Kenneth Branagh), and President Ulysses S. Grant wants his two best men on the job.

President Ulysses S. Grant forces the two to team up to save the world's leading scientists, who have been kidnapped by evil madman Dr. Arliss Loveless.

The movie supplies many impressive visuals (thanks to brilliant production designer Bo Welch) and some hearty laughs.

An odd but enjoyable blend of science fiction and old-school Western, WILD WILD WEST is packed with cool images and slick action sequences.

This movie is rated PG-13 for action violence, sex references and innuendo.
