When simple-minded gardener Jobe Smith (Jeff Fahey) becomes the subject of Dr Angelo's (Pierce Brosnan) experiments with brain power, he rapidly develops into a genius. However, with his newfound intelligence Jeff begins to get ideas of his own about how the research should continue and soon transforms into an unmanageable meglomaniac who has visions of God... Famous for its innovative computer-generated special effects sequences, 'The Lawnmower Man' was one of the first virtual reality thrillers, a direct influence upon such films as 'Virtuosity' and 'eXistenZ'.
