[[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture In the near future]], Delos is an expensive[[note]]$1000 a day in 1973, equivalent to about $5525 a day in 2015[[/note]] adult amusement resort offering simulations of TheWildWest, [[TheMiddleAges Medieval Britain]], and {{Ancient Rome}}. Each park has a population of humanoid [[DeceptivelyHumanRobots robots]], with whom visitors can interact however they wish. As a part of the Delos experience, one can fight with them, seduce them, and even kill them. After all, the robots are programmed not to feel pain or fight back, and the weapons provided only work on machines. [[BlatantLies They're harmless.]]

* ShoutOut: Yul Brynner's Gunslinger character wears the same outfit as Brynner's character Chris from ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven''. It is possible that in-universe, the Gunslinger was specifically modeled after Chris from that film.

* SexBot: Pretty much all the female robots at Delos.

* SexBot: Pretty much all the female robots at Delos. Another sign of the park malfunctioning is when a serving maid refuses a guest seduction, even though it's part of her programming.

* NoOSHACompliance: The safety hazards in the park are flat out obscene. The Delos control room has doors that are entirely reliant on electric power. There is no way open them or alternative means to exit the room of the electricity ever goes down. Then of course there is the fact that the robots in Westworld are inexplicably armed with live ammunition in their guns. Meanwhile the robots in Roman world and Medieval world have real edged weapons.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: Averted, the guns the guests (and presumably the robots) use have a sensor so you can't kill anything "warm," only something cold, like a machine. One of the guests actually tries playing quick draw with his gun, and shoots out the mirror. The book of the movie has a robot removing the sensor from its gun, something the movie missed explaining, after it takes the trouble to explain the guns have heat sensors.

Still there never is any explanation as for why the robots are given live ammo in their guns.

* PopCulturalOsmosis: The ''[[Series/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' episode "Itchy & Scratchy Land" is far more well-known by young people than this film, which it parodies. That is, when they don't assume it's a parody of Crichton's ''other'' story [[Literature/JurassicPark about a theme park breaking down]], only with robots instead of dinosaurs.

* ComputerVirus: Present in UnbuiltTrope form--or alluded to, at least. The film never explains ''why'' the robots are malfunctioning, but the head programmer notes that that malfunctions are increasing in frequency and spreading throughout the three parks. After he uses the word "contagious", a more skeptical programmer shoots back "I must confess I find it difficult to believe in a disease of machinery."
