    I preferred all the initial futuristic trains, medical scenes and Western parts, to the ending 30 - 40 minutes. There are a lot of parallels with Crichton's Jurassic Park. 3 years 1 month ago

    Hasn't aged very well. The concept works well, but Crichton nailed it a lot better with Jurassic Park. And the movie spends far too much time on the setup - I know this is supposed to play out like the ol' west, but having every possible western cliché thrown at you doesn't make it any better.
    Still, Yul Brynner is chilling as the bad guy, and the final half hour or so makes up for a lot of the first hour's shortcomings.

    Absolutely brilliant, just saw this for the first time. Great mix of sci-fi and western, definitely worth a watch.

    Think I'll be adding this one to the collection.
