Futureworld (1976)

Quite a solid, if mechanical follow up, which has a committed cast (Peter Fonda, Blyth Danner, Arthur Hill, Stuart Margolin and a glassy John Ryan in a villain role) and very well executed special effects and implemented set-designs. The story isn't as gimmicky and less than casual, by intertwining between mystery, sci-fi and thriller elements with a strong satirical, if paranoid vibe building upon its suspenseful groundwork. Surprisingly it holds a dark edge, as there's more lurking underneath, but the script can take time out for some agreeable wit. Too bad I think that the ending is quite unfulfilled. When you see Yul Brynner's name tagged to the project, you might just be disappointed. as the gunslinger appears in one sequence involving quite an odd dream inclusion which in the end is rather pointless, but a neat credit for the original film. Richard T. Heffron's direction is tidy with his cruise-like pacing and interesting visuals to match. While Fred Karlin's grandiose music score simply soars. It's interesting to see what the state of science fiction cinema was even a year before "Star Wars" breathed life into a dying genre. You'll not find any of the carefree adventure and joy we found in "a Galaxy Far, Far Away" in the dystopia and doomed "Futureworld" of our making. Overall rating: 6 out of 10.

If at first you don't succeed...

Futureworld is an interesting continuation of the Sci-fi Western classic Westworld, but this sequel suffers from a poor somewhat confused concept that tries to turn the island of Delos into some kind of evil conspiracy. If you really enjoy the first film it is worth a watch.
