Synopsis


Futureworld
This follow-up to the successful 1973 thriller Westworld stars Peter Fonda and Blythe Danner as Chuck Browning and Tracy Ballard, investigative reporters. The team has been dispatched to the expensive theme park Westworld on the remote island of Delos, to find out what caused the park's robots to go berserk and begin killing the cash customers. They discover that Duffy (Arthur Hill), creator of Westworld, has retooled his park into Futureworld, a supposedly "fail safe" recreational mecca. In truth, he is scheming to replace all of the world leaders with robot clones, the better to take over the globe. Yul Brynner, the steely-eyed cowboy android from Westworld, makes a brief return appearance. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Futureworld is a sequel to the classic robot movie Westworld. Set in the same era as Westworld, Futureworld picks up after the events of Westworld. 2 reporters are tipped off to something that is happening at Westworld, when the one reporter tries to meet the reporter he got the tip from, he finds that that reporter has been murdered. He and a female reporter head out to Futureworld to do some investigative reporting and figure out what is really happening there. They don't like what they find and before they leave find themselves being literally copied with robots made with their likenesses.

    The original Westworld is great. Futureworld is not bad, but it is not great either. Characters and performances could have been better and the story and overall production has a very 70s TV-movie feel to it. The Blu-ray A/V quality is fine and there are a few bonus features, mostly publicity material. Fans of the original Westworld will appreciate a return to Delos.

    Futureworld is a worth followup to Westworld. Even though Yul Brenner appears obviously to get a paycheck and doesnt really add anything to the story it moves along fairly well to the exciting climax. With Westworld being popular again thanks to HBO it is great to go back and see the original trips to Delos.

    Interesting and enjoyable sequel to Westworld, Michael Crichton's first film. Fans will enjoy this movie & special effects are okay for the time. Another example of Crichton's warning that just because technology makes a fantasy possible is not always a good reason to proceed(think Jurassic Park).
