Format: DVD
Nowadays if you ask someone to name a film that has a robot shaped as a man that kills, people will say Terminator. Long before then though this fantastic movie had been made. In a special complex people can live out their dreams in Medieval World, Roman World, or West World. You can kill the robots and live out your fantasies (including sexual) with these androids. But what happens when they start to go wrong?

In an ideal holiday complex things are just about to go drastically wrong. With the androids going out of control the holidaymakers find that they are playing for their lives. Yul Brynner is excellent as the resolute killing android cowboy.

Although most people must have seen this film at some stage, it is always good to watch again and again. I have heard ruomours for a few years now that this is going to be re-made, but whether that will happen or not, we'll just have to wait and see.

Westworld is written and directed by Michael Crichton and stars Yul Brynner, Richard Benjamin and James Brolin. Story is set in the near future at an amusement park, no ordinary amusement park, tho. Here there are three worlds, Western, Medieval and Roman, where for $1,000 a day the clients can act out their fantasies in worlds alive with androids brilliantly made to look and act like human beings. But one day something goes wrong, there's a glitch and the androids fail to respond to their programming...

A monstrously great set up makes for a fine piece of sci-fi cinema. True enough to say that it needed a far better director than Crichton to fully realise the potential on offer, both visually and thematically, but Westworld manages to overcome the directors failings and reward the patient viewer. Seeping with bleak overtones as the scientists force technology to over reach itself, the film is propelled forward by a clinically robotic performance from Bryner as an android gunslinger. Clearly riffing on his character Chris Adams from The Magnificent Seven, Bryner is a perfect fit for a seemingly unstoppable force, cold dead shark eyes and fluid in the walk, he's a memorable sci-fi bad guy. Around him the rest of the cast are only adequate, but in a film revolving around androids looking like humans it's barely an issue. The effects used for the androids POV are effective, as is the reveal of what lays beneath the skin, while the finale plays out with pace and no little excitement.

Very much a forerunner to The Terminator, and even Predator, Westworld belies its 70s exterior to reveal an intelligent and potent little shocker. 7/10

WESTWORLD [1973] [40th Anniversary Edition] [Blu-ray] [US Import] Where Robot Men and Women Are Programmed To Serve You . . . Romance . . . Violence . . . Anything! Boy Have We Got A Vacation For You!

For $1,000 a day, vacationers can indulge whims at the theme park called WESTWORLD. They can bust up a bar or bust out of jail, drop in on a brothel or get the drop on a gunslinger. It's all safe and the park's lifelike androids are programmed never to harm the customers. But not all droids are getting with the programme. Michael Crichton of ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘Twister,’ wrote and made his directing debut with this futuristic thriller that heralded moviemaking's future as the first feature to use digitized images. Richard Benjamin and James Brolin portray pals confronted by a simulated reality turned real. And Yul Brynner is their stalking, spur-jangling nemesis. It is man versus machine in a tomorrow that isn't big enough for the both of them.

Westworld still stands up pretty well as a lean, mean sci-fi(ish) thriller. For a futuristic sci-fi it all looks very 70's but that's to be expected and adds to the charm rather than effecting the enjoyment on offer.

The set up (for those that don't know) is pretty simple - we're at a theme park populated by incredibly realistic androids. At this park you can visit Medieval World, Roman World or indeed Westworld and indulge in the pleasures of the era. Then things go wrong. Think Jurassic Park meets The Terminator with a western twist.

The film takes its time setting up its mainly Wild West setting, taking in bar fights, gun fights, jail breaks and brothels before the sci-fi elements start to come to the fore during the thrilling endgame. Yul Brynner is the iconic image for the film, in a role it seems he was born to play. There's sturdy support from James Brolin and Richard Benjamin, the latter sporting a pretty ridiculous tache (I know it's the 70's but come on pal).

Michael Crichton is on writing and directing duties and does a tidy job, keeping things nice and streamlined. Overall, this ones still got it and is a quality, fun slice of action. I was thinking it would be ripe for a remake (which admittedly probably wouldn't be as good) and have just read that there is indeed an HBO series planned with some serious talent involved. Could be interesting......
