The Law Enforcement Technology Advancement Centre (LETAC) has developed SID version 6.7: a Sadistic, Intelligent, and Dangerous virtual reality entity which is synthesized from the personalities of more than 150 serial killers. LETAC would like to train police officers by putting them in VR with SID, but they must prove the concept by using prisoners as test subjects. One such prisoner is ex-cop Parker Barnes. When SID manages to inject his personality into a nano-machine android, it appears that Barnes might be the only one who can stop him. Written by

After Sid's hand is blown off by a security guard's shotgun in scene at the fight arena: He jumps the fence to escape the ring after he spots Barnes, and you can clearly see the fact that a 'hand' is still present by the way the actor (or stunt double) uses that hand to help hop the fence.

At the end of the credits when the producers thanks technology companies for providing tools, one tools is listed as HSC Kal's Power Tools. This is a typo, since the product is Kai's Power Tools. They typo is even archived in TCM's movie information database (http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/person/7915492%7C0/Hsc-Kal-S-Power-Tools-Bryce/) See more »
Another dismal clunker from Brett Leonard, also the director of such cack as 'The Lawnmower Man' and 'Hideaway'. This is slightly better than those movies but it's still a tacky cine-bin which interminably stretches out a plot that would barely get an episode of the 'Outer Limits' revival to the first commercial break.
Denzel Washington is an ex-cop trying to track down virtual reality villain Russell Crowe, who was created for a police simulation using the personalities of murderous psychos and has now escaped into the real world. See, it's just balls, isn't it? Not only was this tat horribly dated ten minutes after it opened, but Leonard's fascination with cut-price CG effects continues unabated and the whole thing looks cheap as hell.
What a class act like Washington is doing in this I don't know; the material is the stuff of straight-to-video cobblers.
