The Lawnmower Man features an intriguing plot filled with some grand ideas, but thanks to a screenplay that throws all of that away in favor of a tonally-jarring and silly spectacle, we end up with a film whose full potential is never realized.

Notable mainly for the fact that Stephen King sued over the use of his name.

The Lawnmower Man echoes Frankenstein and a zillion other noble-scientist-whose-experiment-goes-awry movies.

Not scary and ridiculous at times, Lawnmower Man is a wasted opportunity.

The blatant effort to cash in on King's name has never been so evident before, and at this rate we can surely expect the prime terror and gruesome shocks of Stephen King's Grocery List.

Every once in a while an idea comes along that's so lame, it surprises even me. This...was three of those times.

So loosely based on a Stephen King short story as to constitute fraud, The Lawnmower Man goes right to the bottom of a growing list of failed King adaptations.

The Lawnmower Man tries to hit all the points of dogma about Virtual Reality, but it's getting to be such a large text that each point only gets a mention.

begins well, then runs out of gas

The Lawnmower Man depends mostly on a lot of colorful video-game-like special effects. They are very loud but, after a while, the noise and the lights induce a torpor that is quite soothing.

The Lawnmower Man has it all -- melodramatic plot, bad acting, special effects that will undoubtedly seem cheesy in about five minutes and even a concluding sequence in which the usual lofty moral is voiced.

Despite the hackneyed sub-Frankenstein plot, the dazzling computer-generated special effects almost carry the film.
