Eric from Isaacs Picture Conclusions is running Shitfest 2013, a competition filled with reviews of probably the worst god damn movies you’ve ever had the misfortune of seeing, and my amazing contribution came in the form of a Johnny Mnemonic review. It’s definitely not the worst I’ve ever seen, but if there’s a thing called Shitfest, Johnny Hard Drive belongs there. Hit the jump for an excerpt and a link to the full review.
The ‘90s brought us – among other things – many a cyber-thriller: The Net, The Lawnmower Man, Virtuosity, The Thirteenth Floor, and hell, even The Matrix. But in 1995, director Robert Longo made a movie to stand the test of time. Johnny Mnemonic is that movie, and while Longo might have believed his gripping tale of Keanu Reeves with too much information in his brain (I call bullshit right out of the gate) was good, it’s actually shit. Entertaining shit, but shit nonetheless.
