Johnny Mnemonic (1995)
The closest to a Shadowrun movie I've seen so far.
I just saw Johnny Mnemonic for the first time and I have to say I liked it a lot. The story is compelling, the action is good and the effects are still enjoyable.
But what makes it even better is that it captures wonderfully the atmosphere of the pen&paper-Rpg Shadowrun. The only thing that's missing are the trolls, orcs, dwarfs etc.
Even the energy-whip seems to come straight from Seattle 2060.
Somebody who does not like Shadowrun might not get as much out of the film but it's still very good. Keanu Reeves does a good enough job and Udo Kier is excellent as usual, being the only legitimate replacement for Peter Lorre.
All in all a lot of fun, 8/10 from me.
