Michael Crichton would later use the similar plot line about an amusement park that goes horribly wrong and the attractions malfunctioning for his novel "Jurassic Park", which would become the hit film Jurassic Park (1993) 20 years later. See more »

Goofs

After the Chief Supervisor orders a power shutdown, accidentally locking himself and the other technical personnel in the control room, Peter finds them all dead of suffocation. The amount of real time that expired was less than an hour, and the technical personnel couldn't possibly have suffocated that quickly. 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")
