''Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.''

A computer hacker learns from mysterious rebels about the true nature of his reality and his role in the war against the controllers of it.

The Matrix is a visual dream that single handedly reshaped the future of movie making. The originality behind the story of a post apocalyptic future world shown through visually stunning effects has built a cult so strong within the science fiction genre that the line between real and imaginary has become as blurred as the movie.

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If The Matrix is your favorite movie.....then you do drugs, unquestionably. You don't give a shit about reality, who needs reality, we aren't even in reality dude! You would like quantum physics if you gave it a chance, which is basically what this movie is about, but you have taken too much ecstasy to truly understand those pesky particles. You remember many nights taking the red pill, then the blue pill, and then another red pill, and then another blue pill, and rolling until morning, ha!"

"13.9. HBO Uusintakatselu. Wachowskin veljesten (nyk. siskosten) maailman tärkein ja siistein tieteistoiminta on liki kaksi vuosikymmentä viimekerrasta aika tavalla turhauttavampaa seurattavaa, kuin kuvittelin. On aivan liian ilmeistä, että sen päälimmäisin tehtävä on olla nimenomaisesti siisti ja suureellisen syvällinen, mutta oikeasti se on paria kelvollista toimintakohtausta lukuunottamatta vain tylsä ja naurettavan iloton. Juustoakin on useamman vastaavan tarpeisiin. Tylsyyteen e"

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (789 movies items)

" To say, The Matrix blew everyone way is the understatement of the year. And it still has. Is it a actIon sci film? Is it a meta textual, study wrapped up, in a special effects movie? Yes, it is. It’s also, impossibly cool, and awesome. Others think, it’s a rehash of sci films, such as Dark City, and Hong Kong action films. Perhaps it is. But it’s that and so much more. Followed by video games, sequels, and similar films, it’s like catching lightning In a bottle. In more ways than "

"Zion Zion is the last, only known human city on the planet Earth. The city is the launching point for The Resistance against the Machines that threaten their freedom. Why you wouldn’t want to visit It would mean that you are in The Matrix. Hopefully you made the right choice."

Cornerstones of Action Cinema II: 21st Century (16 movies items)

"Whenever I think of the turn of the millennium cinema, I think of greenish hues, long black overcoats and aggressive rock music. To be perfectly honest, my own feelings toward The Matrix are lukewarm at best. The spiels about the chose one, the monochromatic visual style and so-called cool that was mostly appealing to the nerdiest (or the coolest) kid on my block were always offputting at best. But there is no denying that the Wachowskis turned the action game on its head. Everyone wanted to e"

“'The Matrix' may not be one of the very greatest examples of its genre (like '2001', 'Metropolis', 'Blade Runner', 'Back to the Future', 'Star Wars Original Trilogy', 'Alien' and 'Aliens'), but that it is revolutionary in how its visuals and use of sound broke boundaries like had never been done before cannot be denied.

It is not a film to be seen if people want character depth or relationship depth, with the forced and underdeveloped love subplot between Neo and Trinity being 'The Matrix's' sole weak spot. This ended up not being that huge a problem for me because everything else is so well executed.

Particularly striking about 'The Matrix' is its production values. Simply put, the film looks amazing in its audacious production design, dazzling special effects that are” read more

Magnific posted a review 9 months ago

“Matrix, um filme de 99 sobre um mundo falso dominado robôs que dominaram a raça humana e os prenderam em uma realidade alternativa, não é necessário explicar já que quase todo o mundo sabe, Matrix começa com Neo, um programador frustrado no qual não se sabe absolutamente nada e que é assim durante toda o filme, o grande plot e exploração temática de matrix consiste em que Neo está em um mundo falso e é basicamente isso, não há uma exploração genuína sobre isso, o ponto é abordado e só, é interessante mas não o suficiente para me manter por 2 horas assistindo esse sonífero em forma de filme, todos os personagens são medíocres e carecem de um transfundo decente que os justifique, Neo é um programador frustrado e só, não tem um passado, não tem motivações convi” read more

Film Journal 2021 (130 movies items)

"The first 45 minutes or so of this script are an absolute gem. After that it gets a bit more muddled but remains very tight and on-point. It's not necessarily a multi-layered story but it is certainly a story you can see just about anything you want to see in it. "
