In the start it was a fun sci-fi idea and even had humor. I enjoyed it for a while. The middle drags as you're waiting in a boring westworld and other worlds for the inevitable part of robots going bad. During this waiting period nothing interesting happens. There is also a lot of unrealised sci-fi potential in all of this. At the end is a slow chase, even by 70's standards. Maybe in its day it had more impact but it's dated bad.
It's not a terrible movie either.

The man-machine typical confrontation in a theme park.

i don't understand the high rating even for a 70s movie, This was boring nothing was happening for 80 minutes and in the last ten just the guy was running all the time. The most furious part is the plot in imdb "A robot malfunction creates havoc and terror for unsuspecting vacationers at a futuristic, adult-themed amusement park". Yeah, this happens for 8 minutes on the end!

Come on, few years later star wars came out, couldn't they do a better film with more plot than a cheesecake
