The program takes place in fictional Westworld, a technologically advanced, Western-themed amusement park populated completely by synthetic androids dubbed “hosts”. Westworld caters to high-paying visitors dubbed “newcomers” (or just “guests”), who can do whatever they wish within the park.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
This has more humanity than INCEPTION and is probably the greatest conceptual remake since Cronenberg's THE FLY. This uses the expansive running time to explore the "GROUnDHoG DAY goes to Hell' ramifications in a a way that makes comparisons to all other recent cyborg movies seem trivial. Just see it!
I still think you have to be somewhat stupid to go all like "omfg american tv series are so intelligent these days" without feeling at least a tad embarrassed about yourself, but that's just me. I see more brilliance in Michael Bay productions than I see in this pretentious piece of crap lol, whtvr..
"Westworld" possesses the beauty and the brains that so many TV shows can only aspire to have. The final episodes of the first season are filled with twists and turns, some of them manage to really surprise you. With a strong cast and the network's usual top-notch production values, season two promises to be even more unpredictable with the expansion of this universe. Despite some excesses in dialogue, it's riveting.
I think other films have dealt with similar subjects better. It's always good to have high-production values and character development, but I kept seeing opportunities that they passed up. They played it a bit too safe. They kept restraining themselves as if to save it for later.
One of the best TV series of the year. Westworld isn't just about relationship between human and robot. But it's more than that. It's a criticism to human itself who like to play God. I'll call it a darker version of Blade Runner. Contained a various theme such as western, sci-fi, horror, moral dilemma, even existensial drama. Few first episodes kinda slow, but it's a "warm-up" for some plot twists in later episodes
I forgive that 1 or 2 episodes that were kind of boring in the middle! This is one of the most well structured series I've seen so far.
I have a feeling season 2 is gonna blow our minds!
These violent delights have violent ends.
Entertaining, twisty, and one of the better examinations of video game tropes in a mainstream, rather large part of pop culture. The addition of Steven Ogg is just the cherry on the top. I hope using his character, we can meet the types of players who prefer Trevor's insanity to the Man in Black's. Even though it plays itself up as the Lost of the 2010s, I really hope it turns out better than that.
