Jobe is resuscitated by Jonathan Walker. He wants Jobe to create a special computer chip that would connect all the computers in the world into one network, which Walker would control and use. But what Walker doesn't realize is a group of teenage hackers are on to him and out to stop his plan.Written by
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 »

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 »
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.
