Since the movie takes place in 1983, the amusement park cost of $1,000 per day would cost $2,423 today (Oct 2016). See more »
The guns in West world have heat sensors that prevent them from shooting guests due to their high body temperature, and can only be used on the robots. Assuming that the guests and the robots all have the same guns with this feature, how was the gunslinger able to shoot Blane? Furthermore why would they give weapons to robots that had the potential to harm the guests? See more »
Interviewer of Delos Guests:
[hosting a commercial]
Hi. Ed Renfrew for Delos again. If there's anyone who doesn't know what Delos is, well, as we've always said: Delos is the vacation of the future, today. At Delos, you get your choice of the vacation you want. There's Medieval World, Roman World and, of course, Westworld. Let's talk to some of the people who've been there.

A great movie about an amusement park with robots to entertain you and for you to experience life in the three different worlds. Yul Brynner as the gunfighter is truly excellent and yes, scary as hell.
To nitpick a movie from the 70s is truly childish. It was interesting, action/sci-fi. Well paced, reasonably written well. Great chase scene at the end, because if the Gunslinger was coming after me, I'd be scared. And, as far as I know, the first movie to mention a 'virus' in the machines.
You might as well complain about the bombs in Dark Star having intelligence. Why would a bomb need AI? But if it didn't, the ending wouldn't have been as interesting.
It's like complaining about movies from the 50s, like 'War of the Worlds' or 'Forbidden Planet'. They worked with what they had and had no ideal about what would or could be done in the future. OMG, 1984 didn't happen like Orwell said. Guess we should toss his book in the trash. Too many people nitpicking silly things. Ever heard of entertainment?
If your a REAL sci-fi fan, watch it. You won't be disappointed!
