Frankenstein and the pod people
20 July 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

When we left the resort of the super rich Delos it was in tatters after the robots revolted and left a lot of dead and devastation in Westworld. Now in the sequel Futureworld the place has been opened again for the rich and famous to indulge their fantasies.

Like Jurassic Park you'd think after the disaster they had in the first film the idea behind this would be dead and buried. But no Arthur Hill the new head of the corporation that runs Delos and the place is back better than ever just that the Westworld old west section of the resort is now shut down.

A dying man gives reporter Peter Fonda a tip that something is terribly amiss at Delos. Fonda goes on the story, but he's also saddled with a Katie Couric type news anchor in Blythe Danner who is doing a puff piece on the resort at Hill's behest. They work, not often in tandem to uncover the story.

Let's just say that Hill has found a new use for the robots at Delos, a combination of Frankenstein and The Pod people.

Yul Brynner makes a return as the robot gunslinger who seems to be back in working order after being demolished in Westworld. He gives Blythe Danner the time of her life, you know once you go robot you never want anything else. And as that song says, "save a horse, ride a cowboy".

Westworld was interesting but this was a markedly inferior sequel with parts of the story that were just too silly to be real.
