Russell Crowe hits us Smack in the face with his talent (by dhutton)
If you're looking for early USA Crowe and want to see him showing off his talent, this is a great flick! The character of Sid 6.7 would have faired dismally in anyone else's hands, and the movie's success is based completely on Crowe's now-legendary ability. There's one scene, where he is taunting Denzel Washington with the fact that he Crowe has the memories of the man who murdered his Washington's family and his bubbling little laugh while saying the line, "Just because I'm holding the memory of killing your family inside me, doesn't mean we <more>
can't be friends." is such a fantastically subtle touch! The laugh is one of uncontainable delight, something no other actor would have thought to do. The action sequences are taut and Sid's great delight in himself, are perfect set-ups for the film's well-thought-out conclusion.
The best violent video game ever made! (by dee.reid)
"Virtuosity" plays out a lot like any ultra-violent video game. Denzel Washington plays the hero Parker Barnes while an over-the-top Russell Crowe plays Sid 6.7, the villain. The setting is futuristic Los Angeles. The story is that a hostile computer program Sid 6.7 has escaped cyberspace and has assumed human form and an incarcerated cop Barnes is the only person who can stop him. Sid 6.7 craves media attention, as he is the composite of 183+ serial killers including Adolf Hitler, Charles Manson, and the man who murdered Parker's wife and daughter. Sid constantly uses <more>
taunts to try to get Parker to slip up and leaves a trail of dead bodies as well. The protagonist is played much like any other, he's vulnerable and is determined to stop the villain. The antagonist is like any classic villain, completely over-the-top and only exists to be beaten. However, Sid is not like most video game villains. Sid is nearly invincible because he is not human, but a machine. In addition to that, he can regenerate his injuries by using the silicon properties of glass. This proves to be quite a challenge for Parker as it makes defeating Sid very difficult. In the end, this advantage is also Sid's only weakness: the larger his injuries, the longer time it will take to regenerate and the easier it is for him to be defeated.Now some people may view "Virtuosity" to be, at best, ultra-violent entertainment, which it is not. This film is actually a lot more than that. What "Virtuosity" is trying to show us, is how truly f****d up our society has or will become. The best example of this is during the "Death T.V." scene when Sid 6.7 holds a television studio hostage. During this scene, the camera makes numerous cuts to computer screens that are showing the television ratings. Note that when Sid 6.7 first takes over the studio, that the very low ratings suddenly skyrocket. From this evidence, one can only conclude that our society thrives on violence. In this case, Sid is not the real villain here. All Sid is doing, is giving us what we want, but can never get, which is violence in all its purity and unrestrained quality. So, in the words of Sid 6.7:"You won't be able to take your eyes off the screen."

A rare chance to root for a compelling antagonist (by isaacbbabcock)
My impression of this movie may be tainted by the fact that I saw it ten years ago and was fairly crazy myself at the time.I thought it was an intriguing, stylistic masterpiece of a psycho thriller. Russell Crowe does a brilliant job as SID 6.7, essentially cementing his prowess in morphing into multiple personalities on camera. No wonder he's so sought after these days.Though SID is maniacal, he draws you in as you just want to see what he'll do next. The symphony of screams was brilliantly psychotic. SID's absolute menace makes you either hate him or love him for his sly <more>
evil.Denzel Washington does an always solid job as the opposite of SID. He's a disreputable cop trying to get his good name back.They parry repeatedly in scenes which become less memorable than when SID holds the limelight alone. The ending is predictable but fun, and well worth sticking around for.If you ever wanted to root for the antagonist, this is the film for you.
" There are worlds beyond your comprehension, wherein I am God " (by thinker1691)
Just when you think you have seen the last of a movie, the unimaginative producers gather enough cash to re-make a film which has already been seen. In 1991, with John Lithgow playing the heavy, Denzel Washington was the puppet in a movie called 'Ricochet.' It is now five years later and once again Mr. Washington is taken for a violent ride in this Brett Leonard film called " Virtuosity. " Writer Eric Bernt has reached into his fertile imagination and created a Virtual Frankstein called SID 6.7 Russell Crowe . The story is that under computer expert, Lindenmeyer Stephen <more>
Spinella a creative genius, a super criminal called SID, once confined within a virtual world has escaped. With Police Chief Cochran William Forsythe, finally playing a Good-guy , oversees, Lt. Parker Barnes, Denzel Washington a former detective as he sets out to recapture an impervious maniacal Android. Each place Sid arrives at, he creates fears, destruction, mounting murders and general mayhem. It's up to Barnes to capture or destroy SID before he lays waste to the city. With Louise Fletcher and Kelly Lynch in supporting roles, this movie is from start to finish a real shoot-em-up action and excitement offering. Perhaps now with its completion we might have an opening for NEW ideas and give Mr, Washington a real challenging role. ****
Fun Little Flick With Great Performances From Denzel Washington and Russel Crowe! (by callanvass)
This was a fun little flick with great performances from Washington and Crowe!. It has some awesome special effects, and a cool story, and it's also quite underrated. A lot of critics, bashed this film, and quite frankly i can't see why, the story is great as is the acting perhaps it was too violent for them?. It is a little cheesy at times, but it's all a lot of fun due to a great performance from Denzel Washington, and a delightful over the top performance from Russel Crowe.it started out rather average, but it soon turns up a notch, and becomes exciting and thrilling the rest <more>
of the way!. The Direction, is very good. Brett Leonard, does a very good job here creating lots of weird images, some incredible camera work, very cool camera angles, good use of colors, and keeping the film, at a very good pace, very good job. There is LOTS of blood and violence. Ww get TONS of extremely bloody gunshot wounds,TONS of cool virtual reality gore,graphic bloody beatings,harsh bludgeoning,gory flashback images,cut off thumb,object inserted into temple,quite a few bloody corpses,lots of blood,blown off hand,blown off arm,bloody gunshot wound to the head,guy is messed up badly by glass, and other minor stuff. The Acting is GREAT!. Denzel Washington is one of my favorite actors, and is amazing here, he is on top of things, tense,vulnerable, had good chemistry with Kelly Lynch, and kicked that ass! Denzel Rules! . Russel Crowe is EXCELLENT here as the main villain, he is extremely menacing, funny, was OTP, and was just plain fun to watch!. Kelly lynch is decent here, but overacted at times and got on my nerves, but she had good chemistry with Denzel, and did her job adequately. Stephen Spinella is good as the weasel doctor, he did his job very well. William Forsythe is always good and here is no different, wish he had more screen time though. Louise Fletcher is good with what she had to do. Kaley Cuoco is very good here, and was cool to see her as a young child, she is GORGEOUS now!, but she did what she had to do well, and was very likable. Traci Lords plays a Stripper what a surprise , and does it well. and Hedi Schanz has a memorable scene she was HOT!. Overall highly recommended! ***1/2 out of 5
Much better than it's current 5.x rating... A clever and entertaining Sci Fi film with a good villain, great action, and good performances all around... (by lathe-of-heaven)
I guess I have a bit of a soft spot for Cyberpunk films. Even when I was little, I was TOTALLY fascinated and enthralled with the television series 'WILD, WILD WEST'. I just loved all the neat, creative devices they came up with. I also really liked this director's other film 'LAWNMOWER MAN' a lot too mainly because I really liked the actors, I think And, I feel that for the Genre, this film here is quite good. Denzel is excellent as usual and the supporting actors do a fine job. Prior to seeing this, I wasn't aware that Russell Crowe was the bad guy. He is <more>
delightfully Evil if maybe a BIT hammy at times and has kind of an infectious charisma that is hard not to like. He comes across with a nice balance of being both childlike and Evil.If you like this kind of Cyberpunk Science Fiction, this movie is actually quite entertaining. I cannot for the life of me see why this director after doing both 'LAWNMOWER MAN' and this film, suddenly seemed to drop off the face of the earth. Very sad... I think he had some real talent, and it would have been interesting to see what other films he might have made along these linesI feel that some of the negative reviews are probably due to people who perhaps do not like these kinds of films to begin with. I mean, NO..., it is not 'BLADERUNNER' or 'THX-1138' or '2001', that is true. But, for this TYPE of Science Fiction film, I felt that it was imaginative and fun and well above average compared to many other similar movies out there. I personally liked this film better than JOHNNY MNEMONIC' although that also was a very entertaining film. But, I found this one to be more involving and the characters AND the acting to be quite a bit better. The STORY of 'JOHNNY MNEMONIC' is a lot better, but the acting and characters of this film are better. Some other strong points of this film is it's good pacing along with some decent effects for the time and, like I had mentioned, Russell Crowe as the bad guy is pretty entertaining, although at times, also quite chilling.So, I think what you have to consider if you are trying to determine whether you want to spend your time watching this or not, is whether you like this TYPE of Science Fiction. There are SO MANY different kinds of Sci Fi, that it's impossible to group them all together and make a single judgment on the Genre as a whole. Different types can be EXTREMELY divergent. You can have films that are more Psychological or Cerebral like 'PRIMER' or 'PREDESTINATION' Yes, I am editing this review some time later : or fun, lighter ones like this one, or some that are like 'TERMINATOR' or 'ALIENS', or you can have really dark Horror Sci Fi like the excellent 'HARDWARE', or Sci Fi films that are much more heavily weighted toward social issues or character studies. Some are quite densely structured like 'DUNE' the book more so than the movie, although I LOVE Lynch's film and then you have light, kind of silly ones. So, there are a LOT of very different kinds. But, IF you do like THIS kind of fun, imaginative, and entertaining Science Fiction and can just sit back and enjoy it, there may be a good chance that you might like this film like I did. And, Denzel is almost ALWAYS very good...It is Oscar material? No... Is it a lot of fun? HELL yeah!
