From Back Cover:


Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington (Best Supporting Actor, Glory, 1989 - Best Actor, Training Day, 2001) and Oscar winner Russell Crowe (Best Actor, Gladiator, 2000) square off on opposite sides of the law and on both sides of reality in this action-packed cyber-age thriller from the director of The Lawnmower Man.

Crowe is Sid 6.7 - Sadistic. Intelligent. Dangerous. He's a composite of some 200 personalities, each and every one a notorious killer. A virtual reality creation designed to put L.A. police officers to the test. But Sid isn't playing games anymore. He's escaped the bounds of cyberspace and able to take a licking because he can regenerate his silicon-based body parts. Washington is Parker Barnes, a Los Angeles cope who once took the law into his own hands... and now carries the fate of the city in them. His job is to shut the virtually unstoppable Sid down.

Virtuosity - It's the ultimate battle of bits and bytes, in the world of flesh and blood!

"A must-see that packs a real wallop! A virtual sci-fi roller coaster of stupendous thrills."

My Comments:

Really cheesy movie that pits an imprisoned ex-cop against a virtual reality villain. Noteworthy only in that it stars two Academy Award winning actors and marks their first collaboration together.
