Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace

Another sequel that would have been better off left on the shelf (or in this case lost in the computer). It seems that after Jobe (played in the original film by Jeff Fahey) was blown to "bytes" in part one, he both lost his legs and needed major facial surgery (which results here in him resurfacing as a nasty Max Headroom).

The script combines nonsensical ravings with stupendous stupidity in an attempt to excite the unimaginative and placate someone's naive image of the "teenage audience". Not to worry, all will be resolved, to the extent that the final group will assemble for a family shot in the sunset (of an exploding dome) at the end of the film. Talk about posed.
