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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
1. The pre-credit sequence is missing.
2. Some dialoge during the press invite, round table scene.
3. When Peter Fonda explores the remains of Westworld.
4. Dialogue at the very end.
Until a better version is released, your best bet is to pick up the R2 UK full frame edition which includes all of the above cuts.
well as you can guess something is up but not what you think,they take a different corse and the it becomes a political thriller that works quite well.fonda has a natural charm like his father but much more of an everyday charm than henry had, and he never rubs you the wrong way like jane does. his career needs to be looked at again,he really is much better than they give him credit for>
