Was that Vic Romano from MXC?!
This is a terrible bit of miscasting for the principal character "Johnny". Instead of playing him how he read, as a jaded nihilist in search of a big score to elevate himself out of the fray, Keanu Reeves comes across as a spoiled petulant stoner brat. I'd love to see this get re-booted with a Christopher Nolan treatment, that would do justice to William Gibson's vision of a proto cyber-punk dystopia...although yes, Henry Rollins was and always will be awesome.
Henry Rollins is awesome.
love that summery @darthintrepid, very accurate
Johnny Mnemonic made cyberpunk cool.
Not long after this movie was made, it hooked up with another movie, Virtuosity. After a crazy night that neither fully remember, they each returned to their alphabetically listed place on the DVD rack. Four years later, their love child made it's public debut. It's name? 'The Matrix'.
Ice-T haha YES!
What can I say about Johnny Mnemonic that hasn't already been said? Hmm...

The script is badly written, and the actors (some of whom I think are great usually) are all horrible. Keanu Reeves is the kind of actor who needs a great script to be even somewhat good in a movie - here he had a bad script, and stunk up the joint worse than a rotten egg. Dina Meyer is a lovely girl, but even her beauty couldn't hide the fact that she had to say so many crappy lines. I've always hated Dolph Lundgren with a passion (no clue why) and he was.....surprisingly ok in this film; granted, he didn't have much to do, but he did it ok. Henry Rollins (cool guy) and Ice-T (another cool guy) were good in supporting roles.

The ending (with it's fake Oh No! scare) is laughable, as is the "romance". So predictable, it's painful.

The only reason this piece of crap didn't get a 0/10 is for two things. One, Henry Rollins is a cool-as-shit guy; and two, some of the movie was so bad it's funny. Not most of it, I assure you.

Johnny Mnemonic is probably the worst movie I've ever seen...I can't believe I used to like it! :eek: :rotten:
Wow! A sci-fi Keanu movie and I still hadn't seen it until last Saturday night! Don't have much time to review but here goes...this is all in all a great movie. The setting is extremely fun and creative, especially with the LoTeks, which is a clan rebelling against the government. They have an elaborate headquarters made from old ship that's really beautifully constructed. The sequences where Johnny is in "virtual reality" are absolutely awe-inspiring. The extent of the detail in which the future setting is painted is not as much as, say, Minority Report, but it's still pretty cool. The acting and the dialogue was laughable at times (but Keanu's acting was perfect :P). Other than that, it was quite an awsome movie!
This movie is so bad that it was actually funny to watch. Every character is just stupid. Not cast very well either, I'm probably the only person who thinks Reeves is good in some roles: Matrix, Bill & Ted's, and Speed, And Ice-T is perfect on Law & Order:SVU, But their characters in this film are just not them. And what the hell was Dolph Lundgren doing, his character is like a lunatic preacher, who for some reason wants to kill everybody, the only movie Lundgren was good in was Rocky IV. Anyway it was a cool concept but it was just made stupidly. It's good for a laugh cause it's so bad, 4 on 10.
:rotten: 1.25/10
