Trivia

When breakdowns of the robots begin to occur and spread, there is a discussion on the similarity of this problem to a disease. This is a very early reference to computer viruses. See more »

Goofs

When Peter is escaping Westworld, he passes by a sign that says "Leaving Westworld," with several iterations in different languages. The French version says "Vour Quittez Westworld," but there's no "vour" in French - it should be "Vous." On the next line, "doivant" is not a French word either. It should read "doivent". See more »

The Vacation of the Future Today
11 October 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a near future, the Delos Company offers the vacation of the future in the present days in the amusement parks Medievalworld, Romanworld and Westworld for U$ 1,000.00 per day. The vacationers can feel in the Middle Age or in the Roman Empire or in the Wild West and have joust, sex, duel against gunslinger and whatever he or she wants interacting with robots.

Peter Martin (Richard Benjamin) and John Blane (James Brolin) travel in the hovercraft to Westworld and sooner Peter duels against a Gunslinger (Yul Brynner). However, when there is a malfunctioning of the machinery, the robots get out of control jeopardizing the guests.

"Westworld" is a very successful sci-fi of my generation and a sort of grandfather of other robots films, such as "The Stepford Wives", "Blade Runner" and mainly "The Terminator". There is a scene in this last franchise that is an updated rip-off of Yul Brynner's character chasing Peter.

The story has flaws, but is engaging and suspenseful, holding the attention until the very last scene. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Westworld – Onde Ninguém Tem Alma" ("Westworld – Where No One Has Soul")
