From Amazon.co.uk

Welcome to Delos, the high-tech Disneyland for adults that Michael Crichton created for Westworld, a nifty science fiction thriller from 1973 that also marked the popular novelist's feature-film directorial debut. The movie is so named because the vacationing buddies who travel to Delos (James Brolin, Richard Benjamin) choose Westworld as their destination (the other choices being Roman World and Medieval World), where they are free to indulge their movie-inspired fantasies of the Wild West). The place is populated by perfectly humanlike robots programmed and monitored to cater to every guest's fancy, from brothel beauties to black-hatted gunslingers (such as the villain played by Yul Brynner). But fun turns into abject horror when the robots--particularly Brynner's villain--begin to malfunction and Delos turns into an amusement park that's anything but amusing. Westworld has moments of camp and the look of a low-budget back-lot production, but two decades before Crichton revamped his idea to create Jurassic Park, this movie made the most of its interesting and exciting premise. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars A science fiction classic 23 Feb 2010
By LXIX TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Before Terminator 13 Dec 2008
By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delos is the vacation of the future...... 4 April 2011
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
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

4.0 out of 5 stars Yul never be the same 25 Sep 2005
By bernie VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Theme parks get more sophisticated. Now instead of faking it with actors, the people at Delos have come up with the ultimate getaway; they have created several theme parks of which one is called "Westworld" and use robots instead. They can take real bullets and be repaired. As a side interest they also have other realistic body parts.
To this theme park comes Peter Martin (Richard Benjamin) for a little R&R. At first he is a little shy then he actually gets into things. Everyone is having a great time.
Unknown to the guests Delos is experiencing an anomaly with its system. It seems that in spite off all the fail safes a guest gets shot. Then everything snowballs out of control. The most out of controlest is a robot gun slinger that looks an awful lot like Yul Brynner.
You feel that you are there. So what can you do?
