‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"Should have called it "Johnny Moronic""
‑ Brian J. Arthurs, Beach Reporter (Southern California)
"What's the point?"

‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"I say this without qualification - Johnny Mnemonic is a bad movie."

‑ Fred Topel,
"Seriously, it's not that bad. Don't beat me."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
