Audience Reviews for Futureworld

Very disappointing sequel that is best avoided.

Strange things are afoot once again at the Delos resorts in the Westworld sequel, Futureworld. This time Peter Fonda and Blythe Danner star as two intrepid reports who are send to the Delos theme parks as part of a PR campaign to show off the newly upgraded and improved operations, including the addition of a Futureworld park; but they soon discover that things are a little too efficient and controlled. While Danner gives a good performance, the rest of the cast is rather bland. And the plot is pretty formulaic, with a lot of standard tropes about robots and evil corporations. A bit of a generic thriller, Futureworld is mundane and unimpressive.

An unworthy sequel to Westworld, Futureworld is bland as hell. There are no memorable scenes whatsoever, action sequences are something out of the 20s, actors all seem bored and don't deliver an gist of emotion, overlong, the plot despite having great ideas, doesn't go anywhere and so on and so on. A complete miss and a bit of an insult to the original's extravaganza.
