The late director Richard T. Heffron would bounce back and forth between features and television and this shows in this sequel to WESTWORLD. Certainly ambitious for the time it was the first motion picture to display computer generated graphics which of course STAR WARS would come right after and make this poor film look like a child's science class project. An interesting story if not entirely developed, FUTUREWORLD does make for a fine view if you don't mind waiting while they show off the new technology. Peter Fonda displays his cynical side and though this is listed as Yul Brynner's final film it is, as far as I know, by default of stock footage. Certainly worth doing as a double with WESTWORLD.
