About the Movie
In a futuristic resort, wealthy patrons can visit recreations of different time periods and experience their wildest fantasies with life-like robots. But when Richard Benjamin ("Goodbye, Columbus") opts for the wild west, he gets more than he bargained for when a gunslinger robot, portrayed by Academy Award-winner Yul Brynner ("The King and I", "The Magnificent Seven"), goes berserk. Written and directed by "Jurassic Park" author and "E.R." creator Michael Crichton. With Emmy-winner James Brolin ("Marcus Welby, M.D.", "Hotel") and Dick Van Patten (TV's "Eight is Enough"). Followed by a sequel, "Futureworld".

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [Michael Crichton] makes a creditable debut as a film director.
Fresh: Combines solid entertainment, chilling topicality, and superbly intelligent serio-comic story values.
Fresh: Priceless sci-fi schlock.
Fresh: Great stuff.
Modestly interesting, not a clasic
Was probably a reasonably entertaining but forgettable movie during it's time. Unless you are a cinema buff looking to develop some historical perspective i.e. examining the various bits of cinematic process during the early 1980's then this isn't really worth your time.
If you are really bored, and stoned or something... it's probably better than Wheel of Fortune, but not by much.
Saw this movie in the early 80's, when I was 10 or 11.
Was afraid to go to Disney World after that !!!
Good story, good thriller.
If you're looking for top special effects, forget it, there's no CGI.
Less special effects = better movie.
