This review is from: Johnny Mnemonic [1996] [DVD] (DVD)
I really enjoyed this film from start to finish. It's from a cool era the mid nineties, and the coming explosion of the internet, which films like this helped to further. Think future and a time when smuggling information is so lucrative that information carriers have brain implants in order to get that data from A to B. Albeit in Johnny Mnemonics case at a cost to memories from his formative years.

He's got 320 Gigs of information in his head, he wants it out within 24 hrs or he's dead. The bad guys don't want the data damaged so they want that head, even if it's on a silver plate, and so goes the typical adventure.

The portrayal of the future is really cool, run down ghettos where cyber tribes live somewhat autonomously. These being the enemies of the corrupt affluence of the big corporations, a la Microsoft vs GNU Linux :-)

Special effects wise it reminded me of the film 'Hackers' with the computer graphics. I certainly can see where 'The Matrix' is coming from a few years later, Keanu Reeves being the star role in both, and rightfully so too! I enjoyed this more than Matrix, and consider it to be as much a classic.

Seriously avoid this film it's utter rubbish!! I wanted to see it in the 80's and somehow missed it until now. Thank God I did!! What a laughable lame plot, like another reviewer I had to switch off after half an hour or so. It really is embarassing, I think even children would find it so.

Works fine! Not much scope for review as it's just a lead. Oh yes, my one was black not grey.

A lovely book which survived the Christian period of Late Rome, many texts didn't. Shows the genious of the man. Very interesting metaphysical sections. See also Iamblichus 'Mysteries of the Egyptians and Chaldeans.'

Not bad, the original is better and clever, but this is watchable and half decent.

An excellent film, timeless and a classic. I first saw this film aged 9 over 20 years ago, and it still thrills! I don't know how the much more recent version compares. The action scenes are second to none, and proof that you don't need fancy graphics or editing techniques to make a great Sci Fi flik.

I enjoyed this album, but look at his others, 'Jack O'Diamonds' recorded in 1949 being my favourite. 'The Definitive Collection' has the songs we all know.
