Of course, the visual effects found in the film adaptation of Stephen King's The Lawnmower Man , of which the film scarcely resembles, weren't great.
Everything is relevant though. For their time the effects were impressive to some without a doubt. Today, this Starlog Magazine cartoon by Kevin Brockschmidt, while having a bit of fun with the visual concept, isn't far off from how the picture looks to many today.
The film's visual effects may rank below the popular, but hideous, dancing baby. I hated that baby and that takes a lot.
