Movie Info

In a near-future world in which the fast-paced digital lifestyle has given rise to a worldwide plague called Nerve Attenuation Syndrome, Johnny (Keanu Reeves), a data courier, accepts an assignment that he hopes will allow him to pay for the restoration of the childhood memories he dumped in order to outfit his brain with the microchip necessary for him to carry out his profession. Narrowly escaping a Yakuza ambush in which his employers are killed and the mnemonic trigger capable of unlocking

You can have a better time title-scanning Johnny pics in an alphabetical video guide than you can enduring the latest Blade Runner knockoff: Johnny Mnemonic.

Reeves showcases his considerable thesping skills in a climactic monologue about... room service.

Disappointing sci-fi. Good portrayal of the implications of being a human hard drive, but little action and no real villain.

Audience Reviews for Johnny Mnemonic

The future's most wanted fugitive.

Good enough movie! The plot was a cliche cyber-thriller and you must have known that even just buy the back of the box or the trailer. It delivered a plot that was kind of cool, an star that does some one-liners, and action. If these three things were not what you wanted from this film then you shouldn't have went. It just delivers an action/adventure movie, nothing short of what promised. Don't be critical on films that are obviously intended as sheer dumb fun from start to finish... if these scripts even tried to be thinker, they'd be boring. Overall, its a very interesting sci-fi flick which has its ups and downs.

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.

I should really re-watch this movie before writing about it, I barely remember it...

By far, this is one of the worst movies to ever exist. Not only does it beat out Waterworld and Battlefield Earth, it makes them look good in comparison. This has a crazy and incoherent plot that never has a purpose or message, when I'm sure there was supposed to be one. Aside from a few bizarre line deliveries from Keanu Reeves, it can't even be enjoyed. The effects are just out of control and some of the haircuts and styles, Johnny's in particular, are completely bonkers.
