Johnny Mnemonic

1995

Robert Longo
Director
TriStar Pictures
Studio

Human memory card finds himself on the run from both evil corporations and the yakuza, both of whom want the sensitive information hidden in his head.

You would think a movie with both Takeshi Kitano and Udo Kier among the cast would be great. You would be wrong. A terrible film, badly directed by a music video auteur in way over his head. What should have been a very important film instead becomes a prime piece of 90s cheese, thanks mainly to William Gibson himself. A great writer, but one who cannot adopt his own work into a decent screenplay. It took another few years for The Matrix to fully capture the spirit of the cyberpunk movement that Gibson pioneered, and is now essentially reality.
