Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 03/06/1992

Product Description:

A simpleton gardener is transformed into a malevolent mega-genius by a scientist using virtual reality software in THE LAWNMOWER MAN, which uses excellent computer graphic animation by Angel Studios.

Plot Synopsis:

A reasonably benevolent scientist decides to test his virtual reality computer program on a mentally-retarded young gardener who has often been brutally taunted, teased and exploited. The experiment, which sends nearly-real computer generated impulses to the man's brain, results in the gardener growing ever more intelligent. As his perceptive ability crosses into the extra-sensory, he seeks revenge on those who used to humiliate and hurt him.
