YMMV / Virtuosity

  • Foe Yay: Sid really likes committing crimes more when Parker is the one trying to stop him.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Sid standing in the middle of the Ultimate Fighting Championship ring with his arms raised above his head becomes a lot funnier when five years later Russell Crowe found himself in a similar scene in Gladiator. The only thing missing is Sid/Crowe yelling "Are You Not Entertained?!"
  • Ho Yay: Lindenmayer really loves his masterpiece. Sid's able to hypnotize him easily, which makes sense considering his origins as a hippie cult leader, fascist orators, and more.
  • Retroactive Recognition:
    • This isn't Russell Crowe's first American movie, but it is an early one. It is also the second acting job for a *very* young, at most 9-year-old, Kaley Cuoco, who plays Karin Carter. Her first movie was Quicksand No Escape (TheOtherWiki Article)
    • The film also has a scene take place at an Ultimate Fighting Championship fight, years before the company would gain mainstream prominence.
    • Detective Mark Hoffman has a fatal run-in with Sid in the opening.
    • "Matthew Grimes" is one of those actors who's been in everything, most notably as Dean Rivers in Zoey 101.
  • Special Effect Failure: The virtual reality scenes have not aged well since its release.
