Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I first saw Westworld in my childhood and it stuck in the mind. This is a classic 'holiday from hell' movie - with a major difference - as it's about an escapist theme park populated by robots. 'Delos' is sufficiently remote (based in the desert) and for $1,000 per day it offers wealthy tourists the opportunity to indulge in a choice of 3 fantasy environments - Westworld, Medieval World and Roman World. Our two main characters opt for Westworld and for the first 2 days enjoy the stereotypical trappings of the frontier in 1880: gunfights (which they're guaranteed to win), salon girls (yes, believe it or not but it's open season on these electronic women), a run in with the sheriff and, of course, a large bar room brawl.

Slowly but surely things start to go wrong as minor malfunctions increase. Eventually the beaks running the show behind discreet monitors lose control and all hell breaks loose. Yul Brynner is excellent here as the stoic, mean, homicidal machine and a classic chase ensues.

Morally, there's a strong undertone of the dangers of messing with technology. Out of control robots and artificial intelligence have been done before, but considering that this was made in 1973, it's a classic in its originality.

Westworld is rather short at 85 minutes and apart from a trailer there's no extras here on the DVD, however, it's vintage science fiction and is thoroughly recommended.

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.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER on 4 April 2011
Format: DVD
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

Classic film without a doubt and this Anniversary edition release has great image(a little washed out on parts)and sound.
The release loses a star for its bonus content.For an anniversary release you would have expected some kind of new documentary celebrating the fact that this is an iconic genre film.It paved the way for Jurrasic Park,a theme not dissimilar to Crichton,s earlier effort,WESTWORLD.
So yes a great film and great blu ray just a shame for a lack of input and appreciation.
Missed opportunity, again.

Trivia.
1)When the Gunslinger robot is splashed in the face with acid, Yul Brynner's face was coated with an oil-based makeup mixed with ground Alka-Seltzer. A splash of water then produced the fizzing effect.
2)When breakdowns of the robots begin to occur & spread, there is a discussion on the similarity of this problem to a disease. This is a very early reference to computer viruses.
3)The robot that Yul Brynner portrays is an homage of his character Chris from The Magnificent Seven (1960) & wears the same costume.
4)Director John Carpenter based the "indestructable" nature of his killer Michael Myers in Halloween (1978) on Yul Brynner's character in this film.

What's The Story.
Peter Martin & John Blane decide to take a holiday inside a high tech amusement park named Westworld.

Soon the duo are relaxing & enjoying themselves getting to play cowboys, fist fight in saloon brawls, seduce saloon girls & face off quick draws against the town's gunslinger who are all lifelike robots.
