Hologram Man (1995)

How bad is it? It's preposterous and cheap.
Should you see it? It's just dumb enough to be enjoyable, so yes.

In the future, criminals are made into holograms. A terrorist hologram escapes by having a synthetic polymer skin over the hologram, thus making him an impenetrable electromagnetic field. At least, I think that's what happens; the science obviously doesn't matter in this film. This was directed by Richard Pepin, who has directed a few turkeys and produced hundreds. The film is nothing but explosions and body counts. Michael Nouri shows up for a paycheck, but seems distracted. The film has such stereotyped dialog that it can be fun to hear ("You're a loose cannon!") and the action scenes are edited so poorly that people and things just seem to miraculously move. Except for one long unneeded scene of cyber-training, the film moves along at a good clip, making it decent mindless entertainment.
