Shallow stuff, but the solid visual effects, decent stunts, and the work of Washington and Crowe make it watchable.

The worst movie that could possibly be made starring Crowe and Washington

The presence of Washington lends the picture a much-needed dose of authenticity. But in the end Virtuosity is disconnected and uninvolving.

Despite the fact that it treads recycled waters, Leonard's film is an enjoyable ride.

Though Virtuosity connects all the dots to give audiences a roller-coaster ride, the movie begets nothing new: It's stillborn.

Virtuosity doesn't always compute, but like last summer's Speed, it is far more fully realized cinematically than many less commercial, more serious pictures.

There's a tiredness to its action sequences and a dullness about its plotting that no amount of special-effects legerdemain can hide.

Someone should tell Hollywood that the mass-killer genre is dead and that its virtual reality counterpart is already wheezing.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

There are some interesting ideas at work here, with potential for commentary on news vs. entertainment and violence in America. But it remains unexplored.

Virtuosity is 95 minutes of unsubstantial firefights and meandering plot twists.

Lots of techno buzzwords aside, there is not much new to this affair and one rather hopes that Leonard could have done something more original with the material at hand.

Disappointing action movie which doesn't ever fully exploit the possibilities of its premise.

The world of Virtuosity may be spanking new, but the ideas are yesterday's news.

Given Washington's presence and the promise of a virtual reality action story, Virtuosity has some appeal -- provided, of course, the viewers aren't selective.

It takes a while to get rolling, and the early character development is weak, but pretty soon, everyone's caught up in this innovative take on the cat and mouse game.

Make no mistake about it, Brett Leonard's Virtuosity seems like a less-filling nouvelle dish full of sci-fi action. But what it really is, is 100% all beef.

Virtuosity is an example of a struggle that goes on in Hollywood between formula and invention.
