An amusement park of the future caters to any adult fantasy. Lifelike androids carry out your every whim. A fun place, right? Not so, as a reporter and his Girl Friday find out while on a press junket to the newly opened Futureworld...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Sorely Underrated Follow-Up May 7, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
No sequel can be fairly measured against its predecessor, in my opinion. And 'Futureworld' is no exception. While it lacks Michael Crichton's pen - known for deftly interweaving between sci-fi and suspense - 'Futureworld' actually goes so far as to expand upon the original story, which is something few sequels, even good ones, have been able to do. While the production values do seem to indicate the studio was willing to crap this one out as a TV movie if they thought it wouldn't float their boat at the box office, there's still plenty of shock value to enjoy in 'Futureworld', even if its plot does tend to veer now and then into slightly-cartoonish realms...and even then, the film isn't afraid to remind its viewer that it's not to be taken too seriously.
The plot is as follows: it's been a couple of years since the original film's theme-park disaster - a situation not helped by the dirt dug up by investigative reporter Chuck Browning (Peter Fonda, smug and cocky as Han Solo, only in corduroys and specs) - but Delos is back up and running, better than ever, and the world entire is coming en masse through the new park's gates. But still, the Delos suits regale to Browning's media peers, attendance isn't quite as record-shattering as they'd like...so they invite a wary Browning and his ex-girlfriend, ambitious TV reporter Tracy Ballard (Blythe Danner, who gives as good as she gets with a flair worthy of Lois Lane), to see for themselves that Delos has truly become the Eden it was meant to be.
Alas, with this new Eden there turns out to be a new snake lurking as well...namely, suspicious goings-on within the underground command centers of the park.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Fun sci-fi flick November 27, 2010
Format:VHS Tape
Futureworld is the sequel to the equally campy Westworld. The chemistry between the main characters (played by Peter Fonda and Blythe Danner) is actually above average and probably saves the film from utter failure. However, I enjoyed myself despite the predictability, the absolutely silly premise, the lack of action (there's a sword fight and that's about it) and the anti-climactic ending.

If a sci-fi film doesn't have frequent action sequences and beautiful spaceships it MUST ask some engaging questions, present moral dilemmas, ponder on philosophical themes, etc - Futureworld, on the other hand "thinks" with the "brain" of a rather small and sickly ant. And what an unfortunate last film appearance for Yul Brynner (a campy dream sequence with Blythe Danner)...

Plot (some spoilers due to the simplicity and predictability of the plot)

Chuck Browning (Peter Fonda), a reporter who wrote about the "incident" at Westworld, and TV reporter Tracy Ballard (Blythe Danner), are called to write about the newly "improved" Delos amusement part which has reopened. Previously Browning had met with an employee of Delos who promised information about the new park. However, he's killed before he can deliver it. As a result, Browning is suspicious of the motives of Delos. Tracy on the other hand is convinced that Browning is blowing everything out of proportion. Our "heros" are guided through various worlds -- Medievalworld, Romanworld, Westernworld (since abandoned), and finally, the park chosen by Tacy and Chuck, Futureworld (the one I would select!) -- and all the wonders are shown to be safe and improved.

In Futureworld, patrons are "sent up into space" in a rocket to a space station and perform various space walks and skiing on mars etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars I liked this better than Westworld January 6, 2005
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
[...]

When I was a kid I enjoyed Futureworld much more than Westworld, mainly because I liked the coolness of the robots in Futureworld (whereas in Westworld the robots were all too human). Clark in particular left a favorable impression on me.

I think the story in Futureworld is more enjoyable than Westworld, because it revolves around world domination conspiracies. Westworld is just silly paranois about robots, whereas Futureworld is about robots being used by humans to evil purposes. Unfortunately Futureworld is poorly produced as a lot of potentially exciting scenes, like the fighting between the real and fake humans, are never fully developed, leaving the impression that the film was hastily put together.

Still, after 30 years and having been largely forgotten, this film continues to be an enjoyable sci-fi film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Futureworld, a great 1970's SciFi classic. March 13, 2009
Format:DVD
Futureworld [Region 2]
It is a great story, fun to watch. This movie begs for a remake! Part of its appeal is the 'technology' and the novel idea of a futuristic holiday resort. They did not use CGI as extensively as they do today; an example is "I Robot", mostly CGI. So it is all real! Accept for the part of replacing humans altogether, it is not so far fetched at all; Disney is famous for its animatronics exhibits. The acting is alright.

This movie takes off after the tragedy at Westworld, where robots went on a killing spree after a technical malfunction.

In Futureworld everything is all new! Human computer operators are replaced by super intelligent, 700-Series robots, so nothing can go wrong this time round. Really???

The replacement of Humans does not end at the operators; it extends far beyond that... Watch it for yourself!!!
This is a must-have for all sci-fi fans

I could not get an English version and ordered the Spanish version of the product with an English soundtrack. The DVD is of good quality - Good colour and good stereo sound. I would have liked subtitles though. I always switch them on when I watch movies (personal choice).

Come on get this one, if you still can! While you are at it, complete your collection with Westworld, they make the perfect pair.

Enjoy!

You have to watch Westworld first...........then Futureworld, the sequal. Quite far fetched in it's day, but we're getting closer to the day where this could become a reality.

Westworld is a minor sci-fi classic. This follow-up has some good ideas, but falls short of being a truly worthy successor. Good performances and visual flair, though. Read more
