Can anyone recall the last decent film Will Smith made?
This isn't it for sure.
Lots of talk about how its a movie about scientology etc etc etc...
Be that as it may it makes no difference to the basic fact that despite the money spent on this production its just not
Mediocre at best. Its very much a wait until you can rent it and have a 'lost' afternoon to fill up.
Not a bad film but shallow, dull in parts and not that exciting when it tries to be...

So.... how do you take a poor film from the 80's, update it and make an even worse film?

Am I missing something?
Was this a pastiche? An affectionate homage?
It was a tribute to Blazing Saddles at points...
Tarintino makes another film about other films....Spaghetti Westerns this time and sadly not any of the good ones.
This is no Once Upon a Time in the West or The Good The Bad and The Ugly.
Its very poor at times... and I mean VERY poor
Virtually every character is a cartoon and the dialogue is risible at times...
Lazy, flabby, self indulgent ....
