This was a very good (for its time) cyberpunk-esque thriller about a man with a program leaking into his brain which will kill him, but save the human race. Yes, the stakes are high. The action is similar to the Anime "Ghost in the Shell" with futuristic weapons and cyborgs mixed in everywhere. The "full conversion borg" preacher and the junkie chick for hardware upgrades are classic scenes. It gets a bit cheesy at times, but not too bad.

When this movie came out I was not sure what to make of it, over all the concept was good, but I will still having a hard time breaking Keanu away from the character of "Ted" Theodore Logan. I really did like the concept, and I thought it was a cool idea over all. The appearance of Henry Rollins in this movie is what made it great for me. While its true that this is not anywhere near as clever or technically sound as The Matrix it was good for its time. The best.. well the most laughable part of this movie is the classic "movie computer projection" where every monitor is so bright that it projects what is being seen onto the face of the user. Yeah its a couple steps away from falling into the "B" movie genre.

Well, there's Keanu, but this sure ain't no Matrix. Lots of gloss and a bevy of interesting characters can't keep this sci-fi / thriller from being a muddled mess. Could have been much more.

Johnny Mnemonic.

Johnny Mnemonic.
This film details the exploits of a 21st century 'data courrier' named Johnny Smith, played by the emotionless Keanu Reeves, who transports data in his head for clients. But when a secret and potentially world changing piece of data is downloaded to him, it overloads his brain and gives him 24 hours to live, that is, if the Yakuza hunting him don't kill him first.

I bought this movie recently prior to this review, and I had always kept this idealized vision of it in my head of a pseudo-cyber-steampunk retro-futuristic Mega-City One type setting and some mad government plot. I didn't really get that, however. Though I will say it wasn't a bad film, it wasn't great. Sure, Keanu's usually inhuman and emotionless performance was perfect for this, but over all, I didn't fe...
