Overview

Loosely based on a short story by Stephen King, The Lawnmower Man was the first film to explore virtual reality technology and boasts a dazzling collection of computer-animated sequences. The story concerns the slightly-mad scientist Dr. Lawrence Angelo (Pierce Brosnan), who as part of a secret government agency called Cybertech has been experimenting with something termed "intelligence enhancement." By using drugs and virtual reality technology, Angelo has managed to boost the IQ of experimental chimps. But he also makes them more aggressive and, bit by bit, they go insane. When one of his animal subjects goes on a rampage, Angelo decides to go for a human guinea pig instead -- Jobe Smith (Jeff Fahey), a slightly retarded man who cuts his lawn. Not only do Jobe's intelligence and sex-drive improve thanks to Angelo's regimen, but he also develops extrasensory perception. As Jobe's mental and emotional state keeps increasing, so does his strength. As he gains more power, Jobe becomes angrier and more vindictive until he vows to get even with all the town's people that patronized him and treated him badly.

The Lawnmower Man 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

It has been awhile since I have seen it, but I remember loving this movie. The slow and slightly retarded Jobe gets downright scary after he starts advancing his own changes and threatening the very doctor who was there to help him. I guess it is a bit similar to a Frankenstein monster, where the experiment turns on the scientist. At the time of release, the special effects were a blast in virtual reality. The virtual version of Jobe is rather scary and his desperation to escape entrapment is rather intense. Give it a rental at least.
