Trivia

Although the film was set in the future, the cast donated their old 80s computers for the set in order to save money in the budget. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the first movie, Jobe's body was hideously stretched by his complete transfer into VR space, and there is no way he could have survived in this movie. See more »

Alternate Versions

There are several differences between the original widescreen laserdisc and the DVD at the start and end. Both versions use the "Jobe's War" subtitle and it is unclear if that was used theatrically. -Laserdisc start: Windowboxed silent New Line Cinema logo (A Turner Company) the same size and shape as the 4:3 clips that open the movie. -DVD start (widescreen and 4:3): newer NLC logo with music (An AOL Time Warner Company) filling the screen, even taller than the movie's widescreen image on the widescreen version. -Laserdisc credits: image fades, after a moment crawl comes up from bottom, ends with the movie's title (Jobe's War version). -DVD credits: image fades, suddenly picture jumps 10 seconds ahead so the crawl is already halfway up the screen (music does not jump), and ends without the movie's title but with a short silent (new) NLC logo (widescreen) or no logo at all (4:3).

Why did they do this?
21 April 2004 | by online-13See all my reviews

God help me, but I actually liked the first movie. When I heard this movie was coming out, I rushed to the theater on the opening day.

At first I was confused, then upset, and finally insanely depressed. This movie was absolutely horrid. Bad acting, horrible plot, and mediocre effects. The first movie was definitely focused on adults/teens. This movie was either meant for young children or retarded monkeys (no offense intended to monkeys).

I should have seen it coming as there are no actors in common with both movies. This would not have been such a big deal if the "story" had not revolved around the original characters.
