A trip into virtual reality. Angelo has developed a virtual reality system, which truly immerses the user into the world of computer make-believe.

- God made him simple. Science made him a god.
- 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?
- 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.
