This is a featurette found on the DVD of Johnny Mnemonic, the subject of which is, well, right there in the title. It's fine, for what it is. It consists of behind-the-scenes footage, interviews(mainly with the actors, though the director and Gibson get to talk a little, as well... I wouldn't know, however, why neither seem to have particularly much to say, save for some excitement about it getting made by the latter, and some... possessive sounding... self-promotion, or something, by the former) and clips from the film. There is some narration, trailer-style. This lasts about ten and a half minutes, and does an average job. It's paced reasonably. The editing is OK, it certainly has moments, and whoever cut this tried their darnedest to keep it interesting, with music over all the material of takes and the like, and by keeping early parts of this thing tight and concise. This does hold information regarding the movie itself, but if you're looking for insight, into either this or the book(or his other works) of William's, you might want to look elsewhere. I recommend this to fans of, well, all that I mentioned in the sentence before this. 6/10
