More Movie Taglines:
  • God made him simple. Science made him a god.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Jobe Smith: You realize, Dr. Angelo, that my intelligence has surpassed yours...
  • Jobe Smith: ...my birth cry will be the sound of every phone on this planet ringing in unison.
  • Jobe Smith: By the year 2001, there won't be a person on this planet who isn't hooked into it, and hooked into me.
  • Jobe Smith: I am god here!
  • Caroline Angelo: Falling, floating, and flying? So, what's next, fucking?
Movie Trivia:
  • Early versions of the film claimed that they were related to a Stephen King work. King did write a short story called "The Lawnmower Man", but it was completely different to the movie. King sued the film makers, and had his name removed from the film.
  • When Dr. Angelo stimulates Jobe's brain using virtual reality, the symbols that fly at Jobe, at close inspection, are Kabbalistic mystical symbols with ancient Hebrew writing around them.
  • Jenny Wright did only the close-ups in the VR strobe scene because the strobe light made her sick. Her wide-angle shots were done using a double, and the close-ups to her face were done with a blue screen so that she didn't have to move.
  • Jobe's hair was initially going to be red, but was changed to bleached-blond because red hair didn't look realistic on Jeff Fahey.
  • The first scene shot was one of the meetings between Pierce Brosnan's character and government executives.
