VERDICT – 1/5
1) Society in 2021 is controlled by large corporations and is suffering from an internet disease called “NAS“. Johnny Mnemonic is a “human flash drive” carrying information (cure for NSA) which exceeds his current memory capacity. Now he’s on the run to deliver the information before he’s killed by the overflow or the Yakuza.
1) The screenplay is so boring and incoherent that it’ll put audiences to sleep. Even by 1995 standard, the CGI is pathetic.
2) Forgettable acting from all lead actors.
Johnny Mnemonic: Listen. You listen to me. You see that city over there? THAT’S where I’m supposed to be. Not down here with the dogs, and the garbage, and the fucking last month’s newspapers blowing *back* and *forth*. I’ve had it with them, I’ve had it with you, I’ve had it with ALL THIS – *I want ROOM SERVICE*!
