For $1,000 a day, vacationers can indulge whims at the theme park called Westworld. They can bust up a bar or bust out of jail, drop in on a brothel or get the drop on a gunslinger. It’s all safe: the park’s lifelike androids are programmed never to harm the customers. But not all droids are getting with the program.
I’m not a big cowboy fan, but I sure do like some robots. I never gave this movie the time of day until the HBO series, and even then I had some trepidation about the original 1973 movie, which to be honest I can’t really defend too well. The movie is great, though it does take way too long for all the murderin’ to start up.
The final confrontation in the other part of the park is straight up terrifying.
