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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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