5.0 out of 5 stars The Ghost in the Machine May 10 2004
By jabooth
Format:DVD
Taken from William Gibson's short story of the same name, Johnny Mneumonic is perhaps the most underrated film of the 90's. Its definately a view more than once film. The flaws (and there are many) stem mainly from the tinkering of Sony who changed the
initial thrust of the film as well as the soundtrack from the
directors and the screenwriters original concept. Having done my homework on this film -- and having read the original screenplay and listened to the audiotape version of the original, the changes are significant. The glitch in the matrix of Johnny M came about after SPEED became a huge boxoffice success. What was meant to be a small art theater film became
overblown and distorted so that Sony could take advantage of Keanu Reeves, who was paid next to nothing for making this pic.
Sony's greed sank this film, with disastrous editing, post production scene re-shoots, early release, a bloated as campaign.
Still some of the original poetry still exists -- the cyber interface, the melding of machine and human (the ghost in the machine), and some knock out effects -- The short story can be
found in Gibson's Burning Chrome, or you can purchase the screenplay on line used. From the reviews it looks like it may become the cult classic that it deserves to be. And the Japanese version retains much more of the original flavor -- albeit still flawed, its a piece of work!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Moronic Jan. 23 2004
Format:DVD
Before Keanu Reeves first entered The Matrix in 1999, he got primed to play Neo, in his first techno thriller, Johnny Mnemonic. Given the end product, he must have left this dud off of his resume, (I would have) otherwise, he might not have been hired for that role at all.
I must confess that I have never read author William Gibson's short story, on which the film is based, but I can't believe it's as bad as this movie...or is it? It's amazing to me, that Gibson also wrote the screenplay. Needless to say, I will not be reading that, any time soon. That said--this review must go on. Johnny Mnemonic (Reeves) is a futuristic courier who loads important data straight into his brain for storage and safe keeping. This information is so vital, in fact, that Johnny has given up brainspace that houses cherished childhood memories, in order to save space to do this last job. He's got just 48 hours to transport a large load of data from Beijing to Newark NJ--and some futuristic samurai warriors--for reasons that don't matter--are out to make sure he doesn't make it to his destination alive.
Hollywood conceptual artist Robert Longo decided to step behind the camera and direct--he should have stayed put. While the movie does make a strong case for itself on a visual level, it is just a mess, in every other way. The cast, including Dina Meyer, Ice-T, Takeshi Kitano, and the greatest actor ever, Dolph Lundgren (I'M KIDDING), seem lost here...What a mess!!
Thank goodness the DVD doesn't have any extras (not even the trailer) on it. If it did, that would have been like rubbing salt on the wound, and I couldn't take the pain. If you decide to watch Johnny Mnemonic anyway, despite my warrning, at least you'll be able to see the film in either the full-screen or widescreen formats. Not that those options will make things any better. Watch at your own risk

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, But Could Have Been Alot Better June 26 2002
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Johnny Whoops Johnny Oct. 24 2001
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.

It's not Keanu Reeves' acting, but rather that the screenplay was written by the author of the short story. And it just doesn't seem to be up to the quality of most of his work. Read more
