"Westworld" was an entertaining and creative film but it was also cheesy and at times dumb, so there was room for improvement but sadly this sequel is not an improvement at all. "Futureworld" repeats the mistakes of its predecessor (major pacing issues, forgettable and uninteresting characters and more than a handful of dumb ideas) but also makes new ones. The acting suffers a major downgrade (having Peter Fonda and Gwyneth Paltrow's mom as the leads is all that needs to be said), the script is filled with filler (from four throwaway 'characters' to one of the most hilarious dream sequences I have ever seen, seriously I feel bad for Yul Brynner), Futureworld itself is dull, the story goes for something bigger (and cliché) than its predecessor and breaks apart because of it, the action sequences are laughable, it replicates too much from "Westworld" in the first half, it lacks creative ideas, it's twists are extremely predictable, and overall it isn't as entertaining as Michael Crichton's debut.
"Futureworld" is a mess of a film that comes off as a TV movie. It's starts by being a clone of its predecessor but then it goes off the rails in the second half. Cheesy, dumb, unintentionally hilarious and somewhat entertaining due to its failures.
Less about the theme park and more about shady things.
Doesn't keep you quite as interested start to finish but as a whole it was still decent.
