Michael Crichton wrote and directed this movie which makes the similarities to JURASSIC PARK all the more interesting. You can see through his direction and script the cogs in his mind beginning to turn for Crichton to lay the groundwork for what would later become his most famous property. The movie itself is a suspenseful if abit silly thriller. Yul Brynner is absolutely terrifying as the near indestructible and relentless Robot Gunslinger.

A entertaining and interesting sci-fi movie. The sets do not look perfect and it certainly looked as though it was filmed in the 70's but the idea is very original and it is showed in an entertaining way. Not a great film by any standards really but enjoyable and Yul Brynner is great as the unstoppable robot.

The idea of this film is very clever, Michael Crichton is very good at showing the chaos that science and technology can cause and this is no different. As a book, I'm sure it works very well but I just feel it fell a bit flat as a film. I think the casting of Yul Brynner was a genius move but otherwise, I think the film suffers from being very dated. The effects and the technology just can't match up with what we have today and I believe it hampers it a fair bit. However, I still think it is worth watching for the concept alone. I have heard that they are planning to remake this and, as much as I don't like remakes, I think this could be a huge benefit for the likes of Westworld just so long as they keep it sinister and don't overuse effects.
