i dont simply think that straightforward westerns are ideal for will smith, i just dont picture him out in a good western unless its adventure oriented but then again he did wild wild west in his prime days and that movie is forgettable and i read an article he picked that western instead of the matrix starring role. i just think they should leave classic westerns alone.
