Information is the ultimate commodity. The most valuable information is transported in implants in the heads of professional couriers like Johnny who offer both security and confidentiality for the right price.
But Johnny has paid a heavy price of his own – he’s dumped his own memories to make room for the information he smuggles. To buy them back he agrees to deliver one last payload of data, the most important data of the 21st century, data that has set an army of professional killers on his trail. But the massive upload is too much for his brain and Johnny must find the secret codes to download the information – OR DIE.
(Or, to put it another way, we’ve always known that Keanu Reeves was basically an empty vessel for our fantasies about the future. Here’s a film that makes that fact literal.)
Keanu Reeves stars; Robert Longo directs; William Gibson script; super-intelligent dolphins.
