No one is going to see Lawnmower Man 2 for the acting, however; the film rises or falls on its special effects...

Mowing the lawn might be more involving than watching this subpar sci-fi sequel, which manages to be complicated and witless at the same time.

Audience Reviews for Lawnmower Man 2 - Jobe's War (Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace)

Sequel to Lawnmower Man is a pitiful attempt at creating something new. The end result is a tedious, boring mess of a film that simply doesn't deliver. This is a pointless sequel that doesn't offer anything new or exciting. The only that this film does is that it tries to be inventive with its special effects, and in turn director Farhad Mann tries to camouflage the lack of story with dazzling effects, which in the end just doesn't impress. This film fails in terms of telling a compelling plot, which of course is absent due to a poor script and it shows that the filmmakers clearly didn't care about the end result of the film. There's never anything going on here to entertain you and you just end up not caring for anything going on-screen. This sequel is a mess pure and simple, and with poor directing and poor directing, this film was doomed to fail right from the start. This film is bad and definitely not worth your time. There is no redeeming factors to make this film watchable and this is a film that just relies on special effects to try and tell a story, which is nonexistent and ultimately doesn't entertain the viewer. This sequel is awful, and isn't worth checking out. With a lacking script and cast, this is a very forgettable film that doesn't stand out, and if you haven't seen it, avoid it as it's not worth your time. As far as sequels are concerned, this film never should have been made, and it adds nothing or refreshing to the first. Stick with the first Lawnmower man instead and forget that this one exists.

The original I've always found to be very underrated and hated for no reason, and would even call it a favorite....but this sequel? It shows why movie sequels have a bad rap.

Sequel to the CGI based sci fi film that has nothing in common with it apart from the CGI. Some interesting cyber-punk inspired ideas, but it's executed far too amateurishly. Also, making the heroes a gang of irritating kids is the kiss of death.
