"Dazzling computer animation and special effects…" – Variety
Dr. Lawrence Angelo (Pierce Brosnan) is a brilliant scientist obsessed with perfecting virtual reality software. When his experiments on animals fail, he finds the ideal substitute – Jobe Smith (Jeff Fahey), a slow-witted gardener. Dr. Angelo's goal is to benefit his human guinea pig and ultimately mankind itself, but evil lurks the guise of "the Shop," a shadowy group that seeks to use the technology to create an invincible war machine. When the experiments change the simple Jobe into a superhuman being, the stage is set for a Jekyll-and-Hyde struggle for the control of Jobe's mind and the future of the world.
“While unintentionally ushering in the era of CGI, the story of a socially awkward and intellectually disabled landscaper also serves as a cautionary tale on virtual reality and the internet, and the movie has garnered a loyal following over the last twenty-five years. The Blu-ray arrives with an excellent audio and video presentation that delivers a marked improvement over previous home video editions. With a couple new supplements mixed with the old, the overall package makes for a welcomed addition to the cult library.” – M. Enois Duarte, High-Def Digest
“With its inclusion of both the Theatrical Cut and the Director's Cut, Shout! Factory compiles what should be considered the "Ultimate Edition" of the film. The label delivers stellar video and sound presentations. The movie has not looked or sounded better than it does here. Shout! has recycled the most important bonus features from the previous LD/DVD and added a terrific new making-of doc. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.” – Dr. Stephen Larson, Blu-Ray.com
“Scream Factory really bolsters and adds weight and depth to the film with the extras they’ve provided, included the Director’s Cut which will be a treat for fans. Novices or those who haven’t seen it in a while should check out the Theatrical Cut first. The presentation here has some really great looking video to go with solid audio. This is a worthy Collector’s Edition to add to your library.” – Brandon Peters, Why So Blu
“The Lawnmower Man is an intriguing science fiction film about the limits of human intelligence, and for the most part it's an effective character study of two very different people. Scream Factory has done a great job with the transfers for both versions of the film, and they've also assembled a new 50-minute featurette.” – Ryne Barber, The Moon is a Dead World
