Editorial Reviews

You might be tempted to call it "Johnny Moronic" after you've seen this illogical and derivative adaptation of William Gibson's cyberpunk short story (available in his book Burning Chrome), which is all the more depressing since Gibson himself wrote the screenplay. First you have to ask yourself why valuable top-secret electronic data would be stored in the "wet-wired" brain of a human courier (played by Keanu Reeves), who then transports the data from China to New Jersey as part of his last, most dangerous assignment. Surely there are better ways to transmit sensitive information, but since this is really just a conventional thriller with near-future design and spiffy special effects, Gibson and New York artist Robert Longo (making his directorial debut) are more interested in surface gloss and cyberpunk atmosphere. On that level the movie's fairly engaging, and Japanese film star Takeshi Kitano makes a pretty good villain, tracking Reeves down for the information in his data-packed brain. The movie also boasts an eclectic gallery of supporting players including rapper Ice-T, performance artist and rocker Henry Rollins, beefcake actor Dolph Lundgren, and transcontinental oddball Udo Kier. They can't stop this trip through virtual reality from being botched up, but sci-fi fans will certainly enjoy the echo of Gibson's fiction that remains on the screen. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated yes, but a fun ride in blu-ray! June 28, 2011
By DS
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Yes, you have to suspend your disbelief in certain areas, the plot for example. Yes, doubling 80 gigs to 160 gigs is laughable with the mega gigs available today (the movie was made over 15 years ago). Yes, Keanu Reeves acting is wooden (when is it not?) However, it is still a kick ass movie that is even better in blu-ray. Just think of it as a comic book type movie and just enjoy the ride. One thing is sure, it has never looked better.

4.0 out of 5 stars What's the problem? June 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:DVD
It has to be said that when they open the annals of the worlds most underrated movies this will be at the top of the list. Keanu is well cast as JMn - some would say bereft of personality but I think that's missing the point, he's cool and professional, just as he should be. Ice-T plays the beleagured yet passionate freedom fighter with gusto and Dolph Lundengrundenhousen...en...whatever...is excellent as a twisted cyborg with a religious fixation. Everyone else is more than adequate in their roles. The plot is more subtle than the instant, intense visuals let on (and this is where a lot of people seem to trip up as they do not see past the cheese) and the movie stands up well to multiple viewings which is what you want from a video. All in all, a great package for any sci-fi fan and a must for Gibsonette's. Buy.

What makes so many bad movies so endearingly laughable? More to the point, what got the film Johnny Mnemonic nicknamed Johnny Moronic? The sight of high-paid Hollywood actors gamely trying and failing to utter dialogue that could have defeated Laurence Olivier, that's what. William Gibson may be a god to cyberpunks, but the screenplay he wrote of his own short story Johnny Mnemonic foists a terminal case of terrible chatter onto a cast that already had his plot to deal with.

Keanu Reeves is a "mnemonic courier" who has rented out so much of the memory space in his brain that he's now desperate to download data before "synaptic seepage" kills him (so much for your theories on what makes Keanu Reeves strange). How is it he has room up there to rent? "I had to dump a chunk of longterm memory--my childhood," he tells his vampy bodyguard Dina Meyer. When Meyer points out that if the villains who want what's in Reeves's head get hold of him, there's "going to be one dead Johnny," Reeves replies, "I'm gonna be dead anyway if I don't get this sh-- outta my head!" Which is exactly what the audience is thinking.
Reeves and Meyer call on "flesh mechanic" Henry Rollins, who can't do much for Reeves, but diagnoses Meyer as having the fatal virus that's killing half the planet. Pointing to plugged-in widgets all around him, Rollins claims that the virus is the product of "information overload, all the electronics around you poisoning the airwaves! What causes it? The world causes it! Technological f---ng civilization! But we still have all this sh-- 'cause we can't live without it!" (Like, it's the DVD player, not this movie, that's going to kill us.

1.0 out of 5 stars *bluuuurch* May 20, 2005
By Snootch
Format:DVD
The only movie I have almost walked out on. And I paid to see Wild Orchid II. What stopped me? Well a guy getting filleted in half with a laser rope. What made me realize that even THAT shouldn't have kept me in the theatre? Mankind's savior is not Ted Theodore Logan, esq. Nope. It is a dolphin. A rubber dolphin. In a fish tank. With a hat on. I wish I could have vomited on command! C'mon people!

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, But Could Have Been Alot Better June 26, 2002
Format:DVD
Johhny Mnemonic's biggest enemy wasn't the Yakuza, PharmCom, NAS, or Dolph Lundgren. It was the dreaded bad sci-fi movie script that seems to plauge a large number of otherwise promising films. Someone else mentioned that this movie seems more like live-action anime and I'm tempted to agree with that thought. The sets, visual effects, and costuming are good and help to create a genuinely interesting Gibsonian cyberpunk atmosphere. But cyberpunk is more than flashy futuristic effects and run-down city cores...and that is where this film gets lost. It is all the more disappointing when one realizes that William Gibson himself wrote the screenplay.
Keanu Reeves plays Johnny, a cold, unhappy, robot-like data courier who wants to quit the business and have his long-term memory, which he had to dump in order to store data in his wet-wired brain implant, restored. But in order to get the cash for such an operation, he must make one last Big Job. After being setup by his "agent", Johnny finds that he cannot get the 80GB of data out of his head and if he doesn't do so in time, bad things will happen to his brain. Along the way he fights yakuza hitmen and crazed robotic street preachers, and is helped by rock star back alley doctors, hot female body guards, a gutter punk rapper, and a Super-Intelligent Dolphin.
Johnny isn't as unbelievably horrible as many other critics have claimed, but it certainly isn't going to win any awards. As it is, it is a fairly engaging sci-fi adventure with some serious handicaps. It's at least worth checking out.

3.0 out of 5 stars weird weird weird June 16, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is a film that feels more like Anime than live action..a really dark vision of the future and full of whacky villains, this is not for everyone...only Sci-fi freaks/Keanu nuts need apply ! Keanu Reeves is perfect as Johnny and Ice T is great as an underground leader. I've seen this twice in theatrical release and at least 10 times on video, and find it gets more interesting with repeated viewing...but it's really a weird one !
