Following to ¨Michael Chricton’s Westworld¨ with intrigue , tension , suspense and fun
An inferior sequel to ¨Michael Chricton’s Westworld¨ sci-fi starred by Richard Benjamin and James Brolin , here two reporters (Peter Fonda and Blythe Danner) enter to the new ¨Futureworld¨ theme park (like a futuristic Disneyland) for adult vacation , a pleasure palace resort called ¨Delos¨ which offers the opportunity to live in several fantasy worlds . It’s run by powerful people (Arthur Hill and John P.Ryan) and serviced by lifelike robots that are turning against their creators and planning to take over the world .
The film gets stimulating in parts , action , chilling twists , thriller , suspense and results to be quite entertaining . It’s made big scale and lavish budget but in a serial style of the thirties or forties . Climatic pursuit throughout the corridors of Delos is chillingly mounted and the starring is suddenly confronted samurais and robots , including footage shot at a spacial plant where is displayed dazzling and impressive scenarios . Peter Fonda is perfect as an intelligent and dashing journalist who does jokes with his partner Blythe Danner . Special cameo by Yul Brynner in his final film , he is frightening as the cold android gunfighter who inexorably pursues to Blythe Danner although in dreams but he was killed in the previous film . Director Richard T. Heffron has made an entirely believable scenario which creates the whole images seem admirably exciting , being first live-action movie to use computer-generated 3D imagery . A television series followed in 1980 titled ¨Beyond Westworld¨. Rating : 6 . Acceptable and passable .
The Robots Are Back!
Until ‘Star Wars’ came along, 70’s science fiction movies tended to be heavy and preachy, such as ‘Zardoz’ ( 1974 ), ‘Soylent Green’, and ‘The Final Programme’ ( both 1973 ) predicted dire futures for Mankind. Another was ‘Westworld’, written and directed by Michael Crichton. ‘Delos’ is a futuristic Disneyland where people act out their wildest fantasies with the aid of robots. The robots go berserk, and start killing guests.
In 1976, a sequel appeared. Neither Crichton nor M.G.M. had anything to do with it. American International’s ‘Futureworld’ is set two years after the events of the first movie. Delos has reopened following an extensive make-over, now incorporating ‘Futureworld’ in which people can play act at being astronauts. Public response is good but not enthusiastic, hence the company arranges for V.I.P.’s from all over the world to enjoy Delos for free. Among them are journalists Chuck Browning ( Peter Fonda ) and Tracy ‘Socks’ Ballard ( the gorgeous Blythe Danner ). Browning thinks something nasty is going on behind the scenes. He had earlier met a Delos employee who was murdered before he could spill the beans. Duffy, the company’s chairman ( Arthur Hill ) is intent on saving the environment ( how ahead of his time was he? ) by replacing the V.I.P.’s with robot doubles under his control…
Rather than regurgitate the plot of ‘Westworld’, Mayo Simon and George Schenck opted instead for an ‘Invasion Of The Body Snatchers’-style story with characters never being sure who is real or fake. Even the control centre technicians are themselves robots.
It is entertainingly done for the most part, though hard to shake off the feeling that one is watching an above average made-for-television movie rather rather than a cinema product. The robots ( the ones without faces that is ) look like left-overs from ‘The Six Million Dollar Man’. The resort itself is not really all that impressive.
Fonda gives more or less the same performance he gave in Jack Starrett’s ‘Race With The Devil’, while Yul Brynner’s ‘Gunslinger’ appears only in a pointless virtual reality sequence. Arthur Hill ( who also appeared in ‘The Andromeda Strain’ ) though is great as ‘Duffy’.
Shame about the tacked-on happy ending. Delos has already shown itself to be capable of resorting to murder to protect its secrets, so what’s the big deal about Chuck and Tracy getting away from the resort?
Worth seeing though, and considerably better than ‘Logan’s Run’ which also came out that year.
Three years later, the television series ‘Beyond Westworld’ recast Delos in the role of the good guys, attributing the robot breakdowns to megalomaniac ‘Dr.Simon Quaid’ ( James Wainwright ). Only five episodes were made.
