was written and directed by Michael Crichton. Unlike some of his books, there
isn't much depth to this film. It's a guilty pleasure worth at least one viewing.
It retreads the theme of relying too much on technology and what could go wrong.
The film is set at an amusement park populated by androids whose purpose is
to service the fantasies of the human visitors. Something goes wrong and the
androids go haywire.
The main character is Peter Martin, a skinny business-type whose personal fantasy
was to shoot up Westworld and kill the gunslinger in a shoot-out. When his friend
is killed by the gunslinger, he makes a run for it with evil glaring Yul Brynner
in pursuit. They cross into Medieval World and then Roman World, so there can
be some knights, sword fighting, damsels in the distress and debauchery. Does
Martin make it? Go watch it and find out for yourself.
