Trivia

There were several minor injures during filming. During a shootout scene a piece of wadding from a blank cartridge struck Yul Brynner in the eye, scratching his cornea and leaving him unable to wear his light reflecting contacts without his injured eye turning red and tearing up, so shooting had to be maneuvered to allow time for his eye to heal. And during the scene where James Brolin's character was bitten by a rattlesnake, while the milked rattler was attached to Brolin's arm, he was bitten by the teeth on the snakes lower jaw, despite wearing padding on his arm made of leather and cotton.

Goofs

When the rattlesnake is shot, it is nearly torn in two. When the workers retrieve the snake shortly afterward, the snake's body is intact with no sign of the gunshot. See more »

and what a chilling little world it is...
6 March 2006 | by (Brentwood, USA) – See all my reviews

Classic sci-fi thriller of the 70's, Westworld is a film that never fails to be fun and riveting in its own campy way.

Two pals go on vacation to a hi-tech resort where they can live out a wild west adventure among human-like robots. Unfortunately, the robots are starting to malfunction and our human guests may be in for more excitement than they bargained for.

Michael Crichton delivers a clever and engaging story with this film. It packs plenty of intense action and increasing suspense, that firmly keeps the viewer on edge! Crichton's direction is also solidly well-done, creating a believable feel with the help of some good special FX (especially with the droids).

Cast-wise the film is great as well. Yul Brynner does a wonderfully creepy performance as the robotic gunslinger that just won't stop coming! Richard Benjamin does a nice turn as the timid visitor who must fight to survive, as does his friend played by James Brolin.

Westworld is truly enjoyable sci-fi/thriller excitement and stands as one of the best genre films of the '70s.

*** 1/2 out of ****
