Westworld (1973)

westworld_700Michael “high concept” Crichton directs the film of his own screenplay (no novel this time). It becomes very clear where the idea for The Terminator came from as we watch Yuul Brynner reincarnate his The Magnificent Seven character in the form of a murderous robot and stalk Richard Benjamin through a ruined world. Well put together for its time but slow moving.
