April 1, 2014
This latest attempt to translate King's horrific talent into a movie interweaves ancient fright techniques with modern technology and winds up as Nintendoized Gothic.

Gratuitously offensive.

Nowadays, The Lawnmower Man's cyberspace looks like a budget PlayStation 2 title.
June 19, 2017
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.

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.
July 6, 2010
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.

January 1, 2000
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.
