Did You Know?

Trivia

The 1993 VHS tape of the widescreen version of the first film had an announcement screen that read "Look out for Lawnmower Man 2: Mindfire" in 1994. This obviously never happened, and the film appeared 2 years later with a different title. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the first movie, Jobe's mind made the complete transfer into VR space entirely, making his phone call that would signify his taking control of the world. This movie completely leaves that out. See more »

Quotes

Jobe: Out there people look at me and they see half a person. But in here, they see what I want them to see... how I really am.
See more »

Crazy Credits

The last two minutes of the five-minute credits are completely silent. Whether there was originally any music there is not clear. 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).

What the hell happened???
21 April 1999 | by Vegeta-5See all my reviews

I'm sorry, but halfway through this movie, I realized I didn't know just what the Samuel B. Hell was going on! This movie does not deserve a long review so I will sum it up in two words:

It stinks!
