    • Synopsis
    • In the 21st century, the most valuable information must be transported by mnemonic
      couriers like Johnny (Keanu Reeves), who contracts to deliver priceless data for a pair of
      scientists, defectors from the huge Pharmakom. The massive upload is too much for the
      mnemonic implant embedded in Johnny’s brain, and he must find the secret access
      codes that allow him to download the information-or die. But data overload isn’t the
      only thing threatening his life. The Yakuza, the world’s most powerful crime syndicate,
      are working for Pharmakom, and Takahashi (Takeshi), the Yakuza sector chief, hires a
      ruthless bounty hunter (Dolph Lundgren) to bring in Johnny’s head, cryogenically
      preserved. With an army of professional killers on his trail, and terminal brain-crash
      closer by the minute, Johnny’s running for his life.
