Overview
He's a composite of some 200 personalities, each and every one a notorious killer. He's Sid 6.7, a virtual reality creation designed to put L.A. police officers to the test. But Sid isn't playing games anymore. He's escaped the bounds of cyberspace. And if you think he's unconquerable in the world of bits and bytes, wait till you see what Sid has in store for a world of flesh and blood.

Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe square off on opposite sides of the law and on both sides of reality in this thunderous cyber-age thriller from the director of The Lawnmower Man. Crowe plays Sid: Sadistic, Intelligent, Dangerous – and able to take a licking and keep on kicking because he can regenerate his silicon-based body parts. Washington portrays Parker Barnes, a Los Angeles cop who once took the law into his own hands...and now carries the fate of the city in them. It's his job to shut Sid down. But how do you stop the virtually unstoppable?
