Script: a convoluted mess, Directing: pitiful even for a neophyte, Special FX: Overly dated, Acting: Ranges from bad to wooden... I could go on, but if you're into "so bad, it's good" entertainment, like myself, you'll find this to be pretty enjoyable. The film begins with Jobe being rescued from the blast at the end of part one, then it cuts to the future where the latest advances in virtual reality help rehabilitate his mind and body. After the doctors learn of his brilliance, he is ordered by Walker, a shady businessman, to build a chip that allows people to escape the diseased/crime-ridden real world and live in a cyberspace eden under his rule. Jobe gets ticked off when he finds out Walker wants to take him out and get all the credit for the project, so HE decides to take over the world instead. Then there is this burnt out Mel Gibson-looking scientist and some teenage cyberpunks who don't want neither of them taking over the world and try to stop them both. Believe it or not, I had more fun laughing at this box office bomb than sitting through more recent sci-fi blockbusters like the Matrix sequels. Don't take it seriously and you'll have a good time.

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!!

3.0 out of 5 stars More action than ethics March 21 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This film has nothing to do with King's universe. It is pure science fiction and action. It is only the dark side of virtual reality. It shows how, when virtual reality gets in the hands of businessmen and of a now completely crazy Jobe, only looking for power and revenge, it is the most dangerous invention in the world, because it would give to only one person complete power over the whole world and everyone. It fails, only because Jobe is more powerful than the businessman, and because Jobe only wants to regenerate humanity by destroying its materiality and turn it into pure spirituality by making them cross forever from real reality into virtual reality where he, Jobe, would be the new Messiah. The film does not have a moral really because it does not have an ethical core but only action and indicidual interests. It shows though a certain future for a certain younger generation : these young escapees from the world will live on the fringe and in the margin of the world, exploiting all its technical possibilities but only surviving like so many free bloodsuckers on the body of society. This marginalization of a section of the younger generation is already underway and is the result of a world where you can only integrate, that is to say assimilate and become obedient subjects, or a world where you have to rebel and hence step outside. Our modern world less and less accepts rebels in its heart and shrine. To be free you have to rebel and hence become a parasite or a dead corpse. As Camus used to say : we rebel therefore we are. And this is the lesson of this second film. A beautiful lesson about our inhumane world. Dr Jacques COULARDEAU, Paris Universities II and IX.

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... Dec 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.
