Trivia

The unbounded spread of the Internet in the early 1990s, and the consequent rapid growth of high technology culture, had made cyberpunk increasingly relevant, and this was a primary motivation for Sony Pictures' decision to fund the project in the tens of millions. See more »

Goofs

The "street preacher" being run over by Spider's van is clearly a dummy figure dressed as the character. See more »

Alternate Versions

The Japanese version (director's cut) is rather different from the international re-edited cut. It runs ca. 10 minutes longer (the additional scenes focus mostly on Takeshi Kitano's character Takahashi), some additional scenes are intact whereas they were committed in the other version), in other scenes different camera angles were used. It also has a different score composed by Mychael Danna (Brad Fiedel was brought on later re-score the picture) and more violence. See more »

User Reviews

I cut this movie a lot of slack because it is based on a W. Gibson short story.
25 August 2001 | by scott_mSee all my reviews

Why does everyone hate that movie so much!?! All the reviews I have read called it "confusing". How could it be confusing?

1. Takes place in a world created in William Gibson's many works of fiction. 2. Man has data in head. 3. Others REALLY want data. 4. Man tries to get data out of head before it kills him -- or the people chasing him do.

Along the way there are some colorful characters, cool gadgets and cityscapes from Gibson's 2021, and even a smidgen of romance (but not enough to bother anyone). I mean what's the problem!?! The movie is very faithful to Gibson's vision and even asks the main character to wrestle with an ethical dilemma or two while all the action is going on...
