Format:VHS Tape
Not only is this movie a bad sequel, its a bad movie. Worse that Highlander 2, worse than Plan Nine from Outer Space, worse than (dare i say it?) Battle Field Earth. This is unquestionably the epitome of bad movie. I mean there are some movies that are so bad their good, but this movie is so bad it just bad. And yes its that bad. The first Lawnmower Man was an excellent movie with potental. The movie had a intesting plot that questioned ethics and morality. It was a sort of modern Frankenstin. Lawnmower Man 2 (Jobe's war or Beyond Cyberspace) is the exact opposite of the first. Its almost a spoof of the fist move. This movie should be in the comedy section because there is absolutly no way you could take this movie seriously at all. Jobe, who was a cyber-god at the climax of the first film has been downsized to a mad computer hacker in a wheelchair who for some reason wants to enslave everyone in cyberspace. At the end of the first movie, Jobe's body was destroyed and he became a computer entity. He escaped onto the internet and caused every phone in the world to ring to show the world his power.It was a cliffhager ending! Really intense! What was next? How would he be stopped now? Lawnmower 2 changed the ending of the first movie by making Jobe for some dumb reason go back to his body and become dumb again. The acting is horrible (especially Patrick Bergin) and in the end Jobe becomes his old dumb self and all is forgiven. An why is Peter only a few years older in the far future? Matt Frewer is no Jeff Fehey. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Somebody SHOOT ME!! March 28, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Oh my God. I was SO dissappointed with this movie.
Where do I start.
First off, the acting was horrible. The only actor in this movie that was in part 1 was Peter (Jobes little friend). The first movie had a mysterious and low budget feel to it, which I love, and part 2 has a fluffy and hollywood feel to it, which I absolutely loath. Also, The connection between part 1 and part 2 was very weak. What's up with the telephone rings? That was a great idea, why didn't they keep that?!
...Trust me, if your thinking about buying this movie, dont!! But if for some reason you do, all the negative reviews here at Amazon will make perfect sense!!! This movie is BAD!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars A possible alternative to physical torture... December 26, 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
There are two kind of bad films. There are films which are bad in a way that makes them enjoyable and often amusing, such as "Plan nine from outer space", and there are films that simply encourage your lunch to visit the nearest piece of furniture. This is one of those films. It actually incourages the trade in pirate videos- Because anything is better than having to go to the cinema to spend HONEST money on this junk. In fact, why not buy it, play the first five minuites (That are filmed in Girrafe-O-Vision) and then use it to beat an irritating nieghbor to death? Trust me, you'll feel like it. Not that I'm passing judgement or anything, mind.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst sequel ever made January 27, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This "film" is deserving of every derisive adjective I can think of. The makers of this film either didn't watch the original Lawnmower Man, or thought that it would be too much trouble to worry about things like continuity or for that matter acting. Were I Brosnan or Fahey, I would be rather insulted by this poor showing.

1.0 out of 5 stars So horrible it's insulting...... June 28, 2005
...I truly enjoyed the first Lawnmower Man film, it was imaginative and had a plot that really drew you into the movie, and the ending left your spine tingling (the birth-cry of Jobe, all the phones in the world ringing...), so you can imagine how I was excited to watch the sequel in '96...

If you've seen this film, you can also imagine my disappointment, as what could have been a truly great film was turned into the most worthless garbage sequel ever produced!

It has almost nothing to do with the original film, and all of a sudden, we are living in the "world of the future" which featured the kid from the first Lawnmower Man film, who is only a few years older - how'd that happen?

I thought sequels had hit a new low with the gosh-awful Highlander 2 (planet Geist, anyone?), but Lawnmower Man 2 has truly surpassed it by leaps and bounds.

Not only the worst movie ever made, but as the Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons would say, "Worst. Sequel. Ever.".

3.0 out of 5 stars MAX HEADROOM'S REVENGE April 13, 2005
Matt Frewer who plays Jobe in this lamebrained sequel got his start on the trendsetting ABC TV series, MAX HEADROOM. While critically acclaimed, the series died a quick death; this must be Frewer's revenge. He takes over the role initiated by Jeff Fahey in the original, and there are times when his manic performance almost makes it work, but overall, I think I would have preferred Fahey back in the role. In the original, at the end of the film, Fahey's body had pretty much disintegrated and we assumed he achieved his goal given the telephone ending. However, the sequel opens with Jobe's body being found in the rubble. Since we've moved into the age of teen oriented movies, the film gives us a ragtag squad of computer geeks, headed up by Austin O'Brien, the only original cast member who returns in his role of a now more mature Peter. Still don't understand how Peter could consider Jobe a friend, after what he did in the first movie, and this penchant to make Jobe more a victim undermines the success of this film. Overworked Patrick Bergin, who has never impressed me with any of his performances, has no action hero presence; Ely Pouget (who portrayed Maggie Evans in NBC'S disastrous Dark Shadows remake) is the only performer who seems to occupy her character. The saving grace is the wonderful special effects which continued to elevate this film as it did the original. You might consider watching the two movies together and they might make the storyline more cohesive? There are worse films out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the worst picture I wasted my time seeing this year!
I wanted to just add to what others have said, AND I repeat. "This is the worst picture I have ever seen, EVER!" Not only was it a bad sequel, but it set back Sci-Fi a 100 years.
