Westworld 1973 review

91Si8pStIPL. SL1500 809x1024 Westworld (1973)

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.

    Terrible.
    I’ve also owned calculators with higher display resolution than these things see in (100×32 pixels). How about the fact that they’ve got robot whores but we later see their mouth is a flared metal pipe. Those must be some interesting BJs. We see robots drinking at bars but at the end our hero kills a girl robot by making her drink water. Guests aren’t supposed to see the cleanup crew but they fire up some ten kilowatt flood lights right outside the hotel windows and guests don’t go or look outside at night. Guns don’t shoot at warm bodies but the robots don’t get warm in the desert sun? Robots are externally indistinguishable from humans except that each finger looks like it’s got 3 condoms rolled over it, and that’s because they “can’t get the hands right”, not an intentional marker. Let’s not forget the deactivated/dead king on the throne we see in the last 10 minutes of the movie; he can’t stop that belly heaving in and out while he breathes, like he just sprinted across the studio lot before sitting on stage. If you told me the screenplay was the result of a middle school group project in drama class, I’d believe you.
