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 »
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 »
The last two minutes of the five-minute credits are completely silent (laserdisc and DVD at least). Whether there was originally any music there is not clear. See more »
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). See more »
All effects, no plot, acting that puts a shame on Hollywood and makes us have to rethink this whole movie business, directing that could better be handled by a six year old, horible horrible writing, and a lame computer dork of a plot. Matt Frewer couldn't be worse as an actor. As an actor he makes a pretty good janitor. Just the Hacker's like plot alone is enough to nausiate me. This movie is so bad it rolls over and plagues the first one which was good. The only good part about this movie is using the tape as a coaster for your drink when watching something more entertaining like, infomertials.
