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.

Customer Reviews

That's what this film is, the prelude to the Matrix.

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.

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.

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.

Format: DVD
Give this film a few years, it's actually pretty stylish, funny, imaginative, and Mad Max-ish in its own way. Right now it's stuck at that bad point in the trend cycle--kind of where, say, Sixties Italian Sci-fi was languishing during the Seventies. The "hip" computer people are too busy pointing out errors in this flick to notice that it's fun and has legs galore. It's strangely prophetic too. Frankly, I've never "gotten" people who try to sniff out hard science illogic in science fiction and fantasy movies (Gad, read some of the reviews of Spielberg's recent "War of the Worlds"). I always feel they're not quite "getting it" themselves. To them I say go to an online dictionary and look up "irony" and "metaphor."

The script is an absolute stretch but that adds to the charm of the proceedings which have a kind of episodic Alice in Wonderland quality to them not dissimilar to those in "Escape from New York" or its sillier yet amusingly self-conscious sequel, "Escape from LA." How else are you going to get all those great encounters with wacky characters into the flick, eh?

In a decade or so, when computers become so user-friendly we won't need romping hordes of computer and cyber geeks around who nit-pick every detail of stuff like this (you know, the trolls who always seem to tell us that whatever software or hardware we've purchased we did wrong), "Johnny Mnemonic" will end up in decent "B" science fiction Valhalla and new fans online will be raving about this cool old movie and trashing the bejeebers out of "Sin City." Get it while it's cheap!

I recommend this to either younger people--mid teens and so--who will find it goofy, absurd, and fun, and to people, say, 35 and up, who like that 80's to early 90's retro stuff.

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.
