Lawnmower Man 2 - Jobe’s War (1996) is an American science fiction action film that is also known as Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace (1996) and is the sequel to The Lawnmower Man (1992). Farhad Mann (Devil’s Diary (2007), The Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon (2008), Nick Knight (1989)) failed at co-writing this script and directing this movie. The movie was not watchable as it was a disaster in every area including terrible acting, sets, camera angles, plot, script and everything else. I would have given this movie a zero but unfortunately, I cannot, and that is because of our scoring system.
Dr. Benjamin Trace (Patrick Bergin - Patriot Games (1992), Sleeping with the Enemy (1991), Mountains of the Moon (1990)) is the founder of virtual reality. He legally lost to secure a patent on a chip that can be the most powerful worldwide communications chip. The chip has the potential to control all others and can be devastating if it falls on the wrong hand because it can dominate a society with the use of computers.
Jonathan Walker (Kevin Conway - One Life to Live (1968), Invincible (2006), The Quick and the Dead (1995), Mercury Rising (1998)) is a corporate tycoon and virtual reality entrepreneur that has control of the Chiron Chip. Jonathan and his team decide to use Jobe Smith (Matt Frewer - Max Headroom (1985), Watchmen (2009), Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989), 50/50 (2011)) who was found hanging on to live at the end of the first film. They plan to reconstruct Jobe’s face, hook him up to their database and hope that Jobe can help them perfect the Chiron Chip. Skip forward six years later, we see 16-year-old Peter Parkette (Austin O’Brien - Last Action Hero (1993), Promised Land (1996), Apollo 13 (1995), My Girl 2 (1994)) living in the subways of Los Angeles with a few others. Peter is a computer hacker who gets in contact with Jobe. If you want to know what else happens after seeing the score, I gave this movie then proceed to view the film.
