    It hungers for more character development and more work on the script. The film does have a couple of intelligent scenes, and a few star actors, but it fails to entertain.

    This is Denzel and Crowe's worst movie. The only scene in the movie which is good is at the start of the movie. There is an action scene that is well shot and from there on out this movie is very irrational.
    The storyline is beyond dull and all the ideas they input into the movie do the movie no justice.
    How this movie was made is beyond me but the move was a total waste of a 30 million

    This movie has no excellence that is usually associated with movies released from Paramount Pictures.

    Virtuosity was a big budget 90s film, that despite having a great cast, was a big flop. After I watched the film, it's fairly easy to see why. The premise of the film is that a police training, virtual reality serial killer, programmed with over 200 personalities, gets put into a robotic body and reeks havoc on LA. Having no one else to turn to, they turn to a famous cop, in prison, toVirtuosity was a big budget 90s film, that despite having a great cast, was a big flop. After I watched the film, it's fairly easy to see why. The premise of the film is that a police training, virtual reality serial killer, programmed with over 200 personalities, gets put into a robotic body and reeks havoc on LA. Having no one else to turn to, they turn to a famous cop, in prison, to catch him. The deal, catch Sid 6.7, get your freedom. It's a pretty cool idea, but after you get all the information in the beginning of the film, it turns into one big chase. That's it, a back and forth hunt, with no real substance, dialogue, or anything more than explosions and gun shots. The cast was excellent and if they had focuses more on the technology and the scientific aspects of it, the film would have been awesome, but instead it's just another plain, boring, shoot out.

    This movie is impressive because the actors are splendid! Although a little old it still has a remarkable worth of watch with it's suspense sci-fi, story line.

    Denzel Washington is reliable as usual, but this also has Russell Crowe having fun going over-the-top as a narcissitic villain and the plot is either still ahead of its time or needs flushing away. One can sense a final movement: the off-switch.

    Despite some briefly breathtaking, computer-generated special effects, Virtuosity is 95 minutes of unsubstantial firefights and meandering plot twists.
  2. 75
    What redeems Virtuosity a little is that even at the end, even in the midst of the action cliches, it still finds surprises in the paradox of a villain that is also a program.

    Quality premise, poor execution.
