My only complaint is that the DVD version isn't the Director's cut, which is available on VHS.
Zagnorch
The movie even doesn't explain how virtual reality could achieve what the story is revolving around; increasing brain activity and unlocking humans deep potentials.
A. Ramadan
It seems that cutting out scenes from movies, for the "final cut", is done GRATUITOUSLY many times, by directors, cuz it's "the thing to do".

The first time I saw "The Lawnmower Man" I felt something was missing from the story. I had this same feeling about "The Abyss." When they first release "The Abyss" on DVD it included two version of the movie on one DVD. The second DVD contains other materials about the making of the movie. The movie went from 145min to 170min. With though additional 25 minutes the movie had structure added to it. The science fiction part of the story stood out. The same thing could be said about the "The Lawnmower Man" if they would release the Director's Cut of this movie on DVD.

The theater version of "The Lawnmower Man" on VHS was 107min in length and the story seem to be missing something. Then the Director's Cut came out on VHS and it was 141min in length. The added and rearranged scene made this story presented more structure to it. The concepts of what led Job to do what he did at the end of this feature are explained.

Uniformity, it does not seem that no one has no intention to release the Unrated Director's Cut on DVD and VHS copies ware thin after so many plays. I do see that you can still get the Unrated Director's Cut version on VHS through "Amazon.com" for $10.00 without shipping & handling cost. If you have never seen this version of the film I would advise you to get it on VHS. The whole story is presented here and it made change some people's opinion about the movie.

I am aware that some of the outtakes are presented on side B of the DVD. If you do not know where they fit in the story it can be very confusing and appear to be unimportant. Also, a lot of the scenes were rearrange to fit the theater version and this miss up the original story.

To describe it in a few words the Lawnmower Man is an excellent movie with a great cast and intriguing plot. I first saw the movie on VHS and loved it. When I saw the DVD and looked on the back of the box to find it had twelve deleted scenes I was very excited. I immediatly purchased the DVD even though I already owned the movie on VHS. When I saw the deleted scenes however I was furious. They were just parts of the movie that had been taken out and called deleted scenes. Then I realized on the box of my original VHS movie it read "the Director's Cut". I can't believe that those scenes were completely removed when they seemed so critical to the plot; especially the part with Roscoe and the death of Caroline. The commentary on the disc is also misleading. I thought that I would hear a critic of the movie by maybe some famous critic like on the Dark City DVD(which had Roger Ebert). However the comentary talked nothing of any real elements of film such as imagry or allusion, it just seemed like a behind the scenes with the writers. Like I said the movie is fantastic but don't waste the money on the DVD until they come out with a directors cut. If you can't wait buy the directors cut on VHS.

I just purchased this dvd yesterday at the store without reading some of the reviews on Amazon first. I was excited when I saw the "deleted scenes" section on the back of the dvd case because I was lead to believe that these were the scenes deleted from the director's cut version and place on the back side of the disc. I was very disappointed that the deleted scenes were from the original movie (original release). These scenes are essential to the entire telling of the movie. My recommendation: DO NO PURCHASE THIS MOVIE ON DVD! - at least not until a new version with the "deleted scenes" replaced back into the original format, but I won't hold my breath for it to happen. TOO BAD THERE ISN'T A "NO STAR" RATING - THE DVD VERSION DESERVES IT!

With the release of "Lawnmower Man" on DVD, important scenes have been removed and retired as useless extras on the opposite side of the disk. These scenes play an integral part of the original story line, and in comparison to the VHS release, the DVD version is drastically butchered. Why bother; put them back in the movie where they belong to preseve the movie's original essence. You should not have to put a movie back together like a puzzle!

When this movie was first released on VHS I immediately noticed an inconsistancy. When you looked at the length of the movie on the video case it had the same length as is listed on amazon at 108 mins. However if you actually sat down and watched the VHS release, it was actually about 2 1/2 hours long. Then I bought myself a VHS copy of the film and again I found that it was a version far longer than indicated on the video case. When I bought this movie on DVD it again said that the movie was 108 minutes long, I assumed it was the same as the VHS had been with the same inconsistancy. I was very wrong. When I watched the DVD, it was not an extended or a director's cut of the film. It was the original 108 minute theatrical release of the film. I was so disappointed to see so much footage cut away from the film which I had seen on the VHS release, that I returned the DVD right away to where I had purchased it from. I am keeping my VHS copy of this film, and I am waiting for the extended director's cut to be released on DVD or Blu Ray before I buy it in that format. If anyone knows anything about this, let me know.
