The seeds of Jurassic Park and its sequel The Lost World can easily be recognised in this futuristic suspense thriller from writer/director Michael Crichton about a resort where people go to live out their fantasies. Richard Benjamin and James Brolin play the holidaymakers whose dream cowboy vacation turns into a nightmare when the android population malfunctions and robot gunslinger Yul Brynner pursues them relentlessly. This is a fun scare flick that puts its clever gimmicks to imaginative use, with extra resonance coming from the inspired casting of chilling Brynner (appearing as though he's just walked off the set of The Magnificent Seven), good special effects and an incisive message about the dark side of male fantasies.

Plot Summary

Futuristic thriller starring Yul Brynner, Richard Benjamin and James Brolin.The idyllic holiday resort of Delos offers its clients anything they want - for $1,000 a day, they can even kill "people" over and over again. But in the "perfect" world of fantasy and robots, things begin to go terrifyingly wrong.
