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 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.

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.

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.

Format: VHS Tape
"Westworld" was a great movie that was highly acclaimed, but there has been much criticism over its sequel "Futureworld", and I can't see why - it's a great movie! Okay maybe the androids aren't malfunctioning this time, but they are replacing people in an attempt to take over the world - a good plot if you ask me. The first film was just a suspense movie, but this one is not only suspenseful, it's a political thriller with a lot of mystery in it as well.

The Delos company is trying to recover from the deadly events of Westworld. Assuring people that they have corrected their mistakes, and that their amusement park is now completely safe. To try and attract new customers they now have a Futureworld setting. Everything seems normal until a reporter gets a mysterious call from somebody who warns him that something strange is going on at Delos, but when he goes to meet the man, he finds him dead. Now as he begins to investigate Delos, he uncovers a shocking revelation. The androids have replaced everybody at Delos and they intend to take over the world. But as the reporter tries to get the information out to the public, he soon finds himself being hunted by his own android duplicate.

A great film with a great plot and great actors. Highly recommended!
