Download Johnny Mnemonic
In 2021, the whole world is connected by the gigantic Internet, and almost a half of the population is suffering from the Nerve Attenuation Syndrome (NAS).Johnny with an inplanted memory chip in his brain was ordered to transport the over loaded information from Beijing to Newark. While Pharmakom Industries supported by yakuza tries to capture him to get the informaiton back, the Low-tech group led by J-Bone tries to break the missing code to download the cure of NAS which Johnny carries.
A data courier, literally carrying a data package inside his head, must deliver it before he dies from the burden or is killed by the Yakuza.
I've got a bit of a problem writing this review because immediately after seeing JOHNNY MNEMONIC I can hardly recall a thing about it . If I remember correctly it involves Keanu Reeves playing Keanu Reeves getting something downloaded in to his head and going somewhere to download it in to something and constantly bumping in to foul mouthed non actors every ten minutes . Have I got that right ?
The screenplay is written by William Gibson , the purveyor of a science fiction of sub-genre called Cyberpunk which was very popular in the late 1989s and early 1990s but didn't translate at all well in to cinema . Without doubt the most successful Cyberpunk movie was the original version of THE MATRIX and as the sequels even the success of that film was probably down to a case of style over substance . The problem with JM is that too is trying to be style over substance and there's very little style to it
It's a film trying to emulate the look of BLADERUNNER but director Robert Longo is no Ridley Scott . He also doesn't do his cause any good by casting Henry Rollins and Ice-T who give the impression they think they were going to be appearing in a cool hip movie only to find they weren't and reacted by giving disinterested performances . The worst aspect is the cinematography were everything is so dimly lit that it's impossible to see what is going on in the background or indeed if there is anything going on the background . Add to this a storyline that is often confusing then you've got a film that fails to hold the interest and is difficult to remember moments after seeing it
In a nut shell - high tech semi-cyborg Reeves stores info in his head and takes it around kinda like a mercenary, provided that he downloads it before it kills him, but when he has info downloaded into his head that could very well save the world, well, he ends up having pretty much everyone and their grandmother coming after him, with his only allies being that sexy, sexually arousing Dina Meyer as a would be body guard woman and some low tech guerrilla's led by Ice-T.
Not perfect but engagingly trashy fun, kind of like a low budget Matrix. Dolph Lundgren is given 2nd billing on the posters and video boxes, but his part is relatively small, looking like Moses/Gandalf the Grey on steroids. I'm guessing he lucked out and got the 2nd billing on video and posters because he was the only other person other than Keanu Reeves at the time who had anything remotely resembling audience recognition thanks to his roles in "Rocky 4", "Masters of the Universe" and "Universal Soldier". And his death is most gruesome.
Well, if nothing else, rent and watch it for the aforementioned sexy, sexually arousing Dina Meyer.
Because of Takeshi Kitano's role, there was a different edition released in Japanese cinemas and DVD-shops than in other countries. But there have not only been added new scenes, instead the original version was seemingly used for another version in Japan. The difficulty of Johnny willing to get back his memory is less important here. Instead the film focusses on Takeshi Kitano's ambivalent character. Due to the different version and the fact that the Japanese edition is much longer, there are several other advanced scenes or new scenes included. a5c7b9f00b
