Wild Wild West
Will Smith (who had a hit with the film's theme song)
is “in the saddle [and] ready for battle” in a frenetic
1999 Western based on the 1960s TV series.
Smith plays James West, a trigger-happy undercover agent who reluctantly teams with inventor Artemus Gordon (Kevin Kline), a Harvard-educated genius.
They're tasked by President Ulysses S. Grant (also played by Kline) with thwarting the madman (Kenneth Branagh as a Confederate who can't let go of the war between the states) who has created a massive weapon system capable of destroying the United States: a missle-firing giant mechanical spider.
And stick around for a final scene after the credits (may not be included in broadcast showings). Spiders...why did it have to be spiders?
