"It's yucky."
1 stars

If it wasn't so awful it would be quite funny to watch.

Everything about this movie is dumb.

The effects are lame, the acting is shit, the plot is nonexistent.

Welcome to Keanu's world.

He's a cyber courier, see, and he stores information in his noggin (so it's a small amount of info, because let's face it, Keanu isn't the brightest bulb on the string of Christmas lights, now is he?), and he's missing a chunk of his childhood to make room for all the whimsical stuff he's got in his noodle. Follow? Well, Keanu gets some nasty stuff stored in the ol' beartrap. Getting it out's gonna be a bitch, and all he wants back is his long term memory.

This would all probably be interesting if the movie was even the least bit good.

But it isn't.

So there.

Henry Rollins is in it. That's cool. But don't mistake his coolness for the movie being cool, because you'll get burned.
