The movie that brought together Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe and Kaley Cuoco, but you don’t even remember it exists – Movie News

We recover a forgotten gem of action and science fiction cinema that three decades ago brought together an outstanding cast to raise profound reflections on technology and morality.

In modern Hollywood, few names are as sure a sign of quality as Denzel Washington. Known for his impressive array of characters, from sports films like Duel of titans to tough revenge thrillers like The vigilante, Washington has one of the best careers in the business and rarely appears in a bad movie.

His exceptionally strong career has seen him play some of the most powerful roles in cinema, particularly as a historical figure and one-man military action hero. His versatility is due to the fact that he is a famous and selective actor, something that has earned him the recognition of his colleagues. Among his most significant works are Malcolm X, The tragedy of Macbeth and The Book of Secrets.

But the latter is not the only dystopian fiction in Washington’s filmography. In 1995, the film Virtuosity: Virtual Assassin reunited Washington with Russell Crowe (Oscar winner for his role in Gladiator) and Kaley Cuoco (known for her role as Penny in The Big Bang Theory) to knit an entertaining plot that fuses science fiction, advanced technology and psychological thriller.

Directed by Brett Leonard, known for his affinity towards science fiction and advanced technology themes, Virtuosity presents a future where virtual reality has been fully integrated into police trainingraising questions about the nature of consciousness and the ethics of creating artificial intelligences based on society’s most nefarious personalities.

Barnes, a man seeking redemption for past mistakes, finds himself confronted by an enemy who is literally a product of the society that created him. This confrontation between man and machine becomes a mirror of the internal struggles and moral conflicts that Washington so skillfully portrays.
