Wild Wild West

Wild Wild West   USA   1999   *

A remake of a very silly TV show that was itself a parody of the Western, with lots of gadgets. Ex-Shakesperian actor Kenneth Branagh (oh how the mighty have fallen) is the mad scientist evil megalomanic, a Southern gentleman whose legs were blown off in the Civil War, effects created by computer. He has a pretty cool steam-powered wheelchair that we get to see in detail, but really this is just another case of deformed = sociopath.
