HBO’s ‘Westworld’ is huge. Huge in it’s story and the endless places this show can go. If you could afford to fulfill any wish you had what would you do? How about a visit to the wild west? Want to be a bank robber? Bar wench or ride in to save the day?
That’s what ‘Westworld’ is at it’s basic level. The ultimate dream machine. Role play on steroids. Live out your fantasy in a world where you control the outcome. A world where you can become anything you want. The only problem is the creators have bigger plans for the technology and it’s world.
‘Westworld’ straddles the future and the past of your imagination. In the first episode we get to see this ‘Westworld’ and it’s inhabitants. Also it’s creator played by Anthony Hopkins. The cast is superb across the board and the use of the amazing landscapes feel like a throw back to all the John Ford westerns from days of old. It makes you want to jump on a horse and ride into the horizon. Guns, Bots, Beautiful girls and an uncertain future make for potential gold with this show. As always HBO delivers in the drama department once again.
The cast of the 10-episode series includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth and Clifton Collins, Jr. This show is worth a good long look.
