Futureworld (1976)

A dull, plodding, undercooked sequel lacking anything that made its predecessor compelling.

There are no new interesting science-fiction concepts. The plot is painfully dull, and the pacing dreadfully slow. The characters (and the performances behind them) are flat. The movie has an interesting twist, but reveals it in the least dramatically interesting way, and does very little with it – you can tell that Michael Crichton had no involvement with this film, as it lacks his signature fascinating exploration of relatable human themes through science-fiction concepts.

There isn’t a lot to say to say about the film. It isn’t offensively bad or anything, but it’s a terrible bore. I give it one newspaper, and a robot’s mask.
