For $1,000 a day, the Delos Corporation's Disneyland modeled, adult geared theme park offers state of the art cyborgs, capable of passing the Turing Test, to satisfy your basest desires. Of the three parks, two city slickers (James Brolin and Richard Benjamin) elect to visit Westernworld (forgoing Romanworld and Medievalworld) when a glitch in the system causes the inhabitants to revolt and the men find themselves targeted by a relentless, advanced modeled gunslinger (Yul Brynner). Michael Chrichton's Westworld is shockingly simple, especially when compared to the overplotted, seemingly contradictory, and occasionally fascinating HBO series but benefits from its gritty, low budget look compared to the sleekness of its successor. Brynner is perfectly cast.
