The great thing about this HBO series is how the creators (Lisa Joy; Jonathan Nolan) have preserved the bare bones of the original concept while reconceiving the whole thing from scratch and in absorbing detail...A compelling clash of genres.

Lots of big ideas, lots of far-flung literary/cinematic references, and lots of violence. Yup, Westworld is a lot - but also a winner with a potentially exciting payoff.

Like the on-screen robots, its pieces are meticulously put together, its capacity to unleash hell brimming beneath the surface. And it's beautiful to watch.

The show is visually stunning -- and oh-so unnerving. Perhaps you'll want to visit Westworld just as much as Westeros.

It's a star-powered, gorgeously shot philosophy class, but one that may be too stiff and ponderous for those who like their action with a little more humanity.

The question of whether Wood and company can make Westworld as emotionally viable as it is fascinating to watch remains to be seen. Still, try looking away.

The vast amounts of terror dispensed on characters of color makes for a disturbing picture.

Westworld is a visually complex world with an equally complex storyline. It is a challenge to keep up with, and that can only be a good thing.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy have created a spectacular series that has faith in the intelligence of its audience and is not afraid to play with the huge themes of morality, free will and consciousness.

But despite familiar themes and an ill-judged inciting incident, there's a lot to enjoy and admire in its unsettling, visually lush pilot.

    The first season of westworld is exceptionally stong and becomes even beter when viewing it as a standalone series (without a second season.)
  • Jul 15, 2019
    A true masterpiece of intelligent TV
  • Jun 11, 2019
    Never thought I'd say this but what a mindfuck! it builds slowly and completely blows your mind at the end. Could use with a little less graphic violence, we get the point in the begging but other than that...just amazing writing, directing, editing and sound tracking.

    *My Rating 10/10. *Based on Smilutated Reality where Future advance Civilization Creats Humans and make a simulated reality world. its a masterpiece for comprehensive info about "Simulated Reality" to also gives you info that to get rid of "f**king religious bullsh*t", yes I have watched prometheus and the matrix etc but this is different and creative and unique. This type of story you can't forget your whole life its mind bending & philosophical masterpiece. *I use to skip and move forward while watching but watching this one I was unable to do because its very creative and you can't skip in order to properly understand the plot and every episode makes it better. *till now I considered that the Game of thrones is the best of show of "HBO" but after watching this one I was wrong becasuse "west world" have done the realism at its best "NO F**king bullsh*t censors" and this one is the best show of "HBO" in my List. *Never disappointed after watching show from the legend "Jonathan Nolan". Hats off to Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy for this epic show basically I have no word to explain how beautiful this show is... its just a tremendous masterpiece "A MUST WATCH SHOW". *This is one of my favorite tv shows & very excited for season 3 (2020). Best Regards
