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.
An inferior sequel to ¨Michael Chricton's Westworld¨ sci-fi where two reporters ( Peter Fonda and Blythe Danner ) enter to the new ¨Futureworld¨ theme park ( as a futuristic Disneyland ) for adult vacation , a pleasure palace resort called ¨Delos¨ which offers the opportunity to live in several fantasy worlds .It's ruled by powerful people ( Arthur Hill and John P.Ryan ) and serviced by lifelike robots that are turning against their creators and a planning to take over the world .
The film gets stimulating in parts, action , chilling twists , thriller , suspense and is quite entertaining . It's made big scale and lavish budget but in a serial style of the thirties or forties . Climatic pursuit throughout the corridors of Delos is chilling mounted and the starring is suddenly confronted samurais and robots , including footage shot at a spacial plant where are displayed dazzling and impressive scenarios . Peter Fonda is perfect as intelligent and dashing journalist who jokes with his partner Blythe Danner . Special cameo by Yul Brynner is frightening as the cold android gunfighter who inexorably pursues to Blythe Danner although in dreams but he was killed in the previous 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 ›

While I liked Futureworld with Peter Fonda as reporter Chuck Browning, I didn't like it nearly as much as I liked the mothership, Westworld. Read morePublished 13 days ago by By CJs Pirate

Ugh -- the worst of 1970s cliche-laden made-for-TV SF. Best enjoyed as high camp.Published 1 month ago by Garbanzo
This is a movie that was really cutting edge at the time. Remember that there was no such thing as CGI, a personal computer, ATM, or the personal internet at this time. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Wizbang_FL
