Editorial Reviews

Keanu Reeves is a space-age courier who's plugged in, turned on and buffed up to deliver the most important data of the 21st century, wet-wired directly into his brain! A rapid-fire roller coaster ofaction and high-impact imagery! Also starring Dolph Lundgren, Takeshi, Ice-T, Dina Meyer and Henry Rollins.

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.

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.

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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Johnny Whoops Johnny October 24, 2001
Format:DVD
This JUST RELEASED SPECIAL SUPERBIT version of this film (10/09/01), means that all available disc space is used to present the film supposedly at the very finest visual quality possible. The disc space is devoted to improving the resolution of the film. That means no extras, no bells and whistles, behind the scenes documentaries, commentaries, nothing, nada. Perhaps an extra disc of extra's would have been nice. . . but this release is not geared to please everyone, only the pickiest DVDophiles amongst us.
If you like the film and you want to see and hear it better than you have ever been able to hear it before, this DVD is worth getting. There are no extras as all of the disc space is utilized in giving the highest possible bit rate possible. I hope some truly classic films will offered using the Superbit process in the future. I would also like to see an additional disc of extra material being offered for those films that have available extras.
Johnny Mnemonic should have been a delightful camp-fest with some remarkable sequences full of colorful digital effects. An excellent pop-artist Robert Longo directed the film, and it's all based on famed cyber-punk/ science fiction writer William Gibson's short story. He even adapted it for the screen.
The film to me is about as much fun as getting dumped off the internet just as your finishing writing a long e-mail you've not saved. I'd have to strain quite a bit to tell you something that is worthwhile in the film. The cast might look promising on paper, (Keanu, Dina Meyer, Ice-T, Takeshi (BEAT)Kitano, Henry Rollins, and Udo Kier) but nobody is particularly good in the film.
There's a pretty interesting sequence when Johnny quite literally surfs the internet. It's got some dazzling visuals for a few minutes.
