I would like to know this movie title. Unfortunately, I only remember a little about this movie plot.

I watched it around 2008. I think it's an action adventure film. The only plot I remember is a big mechanical-like spider in a background of a desert/barren/wasteland. Some guys in the movie are wearing a round western hat. There's also a scene in a prison where a guy is able to bend the prison iron bar with a wet rag. I think there's also a scene with a zeppelin (not sure).

It's in color and not animated. It's in English and probably a Hollywood movie.

Sounds like Wild Wild West which was released in 1999 and starred Will Smith and Kevin Kline and was a Steam Punk Western.

It featured a large mechanical spider

    As others mentioned the answer is Wild Wild West. However I just wanted to add that the prison bar scene may have been Shanghai Noon, and you might be mixing these up. – Joe Cooper Apr 20 '17 at 11:50

    By the way, Kevin Smith has a great story about working on a Superman screenplay that gives some, well, incredible background on the giant spider in Wild Wild West: youtube.com/watch?v=Wo2KB1dEDdk – ognockocaten Apr 20 '17 at 13:11

    There's also a smaller mechanical spider, used as the bad guy's wheelchair, if I remember correctly? – John Dvorak Apr 20 '17 at 14:34
