A Sci-fi classic
Rating-9/10

The Matrix is a legendary Sci-Fi film with big effects, action and adventure and serves up a superb film that can thoroughly be enjoyed. With it's story with a thousand pieces, watching it is like a jigsaw with pieces added in over and over making for a plot which is well done and thought out. Some consider it a classic and it is easy to see why, the effects are well done and the cast do an OK job too and coupled with the plot and just even little things the creators have put in, it turns out to be Brilliant and pretty flawless, and here is why I think so below this.

The story is fast, explaining all the things going on well and letting the viewer take things in gently but by the end the story accelerates and the action and adventure kicks in, a beautiful balance. As I said the plot is smart and slick and for us the viewer predicting what is next cannot be guessed, even if you know the basic plot, too much happens to know at all what is happening. Within the story we have all the famous slow motion fight scenes and they do wonders for the film which succeeds with a perfect mix of violence but drama, thrilling yet witty, it all goes well and I couldn't tell you to watch this more, if you haven't already.

I felt the cast aren't the best in this and Keanu Reeves in the lead role is kind of stale and dull, very emotionless, but he doesn't do his job that badly that the film is also Poor. Laurence Fishburne is OK in his role and even if you think he is being emotionless that is just what Morpheus is like anyway so his role is fine. Everyone else is fine but no one excels in the entire cast and if anything the acting is this movies weakest part, but it isn't bad though. Finally on the characters they are fun, dark thinking and always serious but with a good mix of Neo(he is oblivious) we see a fun start but by the end everything everyone needs to know is already taken down.

The Wachowski brothers do a great job with this, and to say this is there biggest hit, well it really is and by far as it is well directed by them and also written by them in a great way too. It serves up to be fun but dramatic and although the fun side isn't expressed greatly, the drama is good enough for it to be superb and the brothers knew what they were doing here. I loved the effects, and to say they are in 1999 it is even better with some fantastic things on show and great choreographed fight scenes(with a little effect added in) which are just great to see with the eye, even if a little violent at times, and maybe comic book style.

The film can be too violent so maybe not for those who dislike that kind of thing, the story I guess for some could be confusing and if you don't listen to the entire story then you will lose what the whole point of what there doing is about. Overall not too many criticisms but I said about the acting and maybe the film is slow, but for those who watch I think it is up to you to see any criticism, I am sure some will dislike this movie so just have a watch and see what you think.

People who enjoy a good action film wrapped in a smart plot will love this and I couldn't tell them to see this more. Sci-Fi movie fans will also love it and with such a rich Sci-Fi script and special effects it could be some peoples favourite movie by the end of the film, also in that mix the fight scenes could gain fans by themselves as little movies before or since have implemented such an interesting and fast Sci-Fi action film, dabbled with a little mystery.

I give it a 9/10 meaning I thought it was just about a wonderful film, and it is just stunning, if you attempt to rate this you get thrown up with the acting and then the story, the special effects but is it too confusing, but by the end you just feel you have seen a superb movie that you enjoyed to the fullest. With the sequels regarded as some of the worst sequels ever you can just sit back and savour the first one and who knows, maybe you will enjoy the other instalments too.

Stunning and wild...
It's been a while since a movie has generated enough interest in me for me to watch it. "The Matrix" looked exciting enough in the trailers, so I decided to give it a look. What I found was an amazing movie, with some of the greatest special effects I've ever seen. The camera angles really work for the action sequences and the choreographed fight scenes made me yearn for more. Say what you want about Keanu Reeves' acting. He may not deliver the best dialogue, but his look can carry a film. He was a great choice for the role of Neo. Carrie Anne Moss was great as was the underrated Laurence Fishburne. I highly recommend this film for those who are a fan of visually stunning movies. It will blow away your senses...

Rewatched this movie
This movie was amazing all props to Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne it was wonderful acting for this movie. I do not believe in fate either. I found it deep that we are born in a bondage and a jail that we cannot fight in this extreme to the movie. In this movie it was clear to tell that Neo and Trinity were going to be come a thing and that Morpheus was going to be a great teacher. This movie definitely brings up very good points. With knowing what is real and what is not real.

Keanu Reeves kicks machine ass and saves human kind
Don't you enjoy watching movies where people get shot in the head in slow motion? Observing the blood spray out from the back of a head, or a bullet cutting through the air. Watching movies where the main character has crazy super powers or combat skills and defeats the antiheroes by using a very sophisticated plan. Although all action movies have different characters and motives, they usually all follow the same, generic story line. In the beginning, something bad will happen to the main character and throughout the movie, they will come up with a crazy and dangerous plan to take their revenge. Some action movies with this type of story line are Kingsmen, Wanted, and Deadpool. The directors of these movies use computer generated imagery to create special effects such as "bullet time", causing a sense of unreality. These great movie scenes were all derived from the single film that innovated movie production forever, The Matrix. When The Matrix first came out in 1999, there was very little hype about the movie because nobody knew what to expect with the new special effects. The Matrix was a movie with a story line and graphics people have never seen before. When it hit the box office, the audiences were blown away and it smashed old records, winning many Oscars. This movie was extremely successful because it was a complete original film, from the story line to the special effects, The Matrix was like no other movie of its time. If you are not familiar with the Matrix story line, it is the baseline of where most modern day action movies come from. The story opens with the main character, Neo Anderson, living in a false reality with most of the other people living world. We later find out that robots rule the real world, harvesting humans as a source of power by sedating them in an alternate reality where they live their "lives". In order to keep the human race from becoming extinct, a select group of humans are chosen to help fight against the robot army. Their only hope of survival is to find "The One", a select individual with supreme fighting skills that is destined to defeat the robots. As the story goes on, "The One", Neo Anderson, travels between realities to find the robots' power source. Over his missions, he achieves great power, having inhumane physical abilities, resurrection, and the power to stop bullets. Since the story line is original with all the new abilities and powers, the special effects and stunts also have to be original. The Matrix's special effects team, ESC Entertainment, reinvented the meaning of special effects and created an entire new world for the production of movies through their work. There are scenes in the movie that required a new style of special effects because characters would jump from buildings, walk on walls, and have super speed. Before The Matrix, people have never seen these types of stunts and effects in other movies because it was beyond their time. So the crew had to come up with their own, spending weeks on thinking of the best ways to portray these scenes. The Matrix movie invented a very popular effect in which many action movies today use, Bullet Time. When Neo is fighting off the the robots in the matrix reality, he is able to stop and dodge bullets that are flying at him. In these scenes, we are able to see the bullets fly through the air up close and in slow motion. We are also able to see characters dodge these bullets, moving at inhuman speeds. Overall The Matrix is a movie that has innovated movie production today. Ever since this movie came out, the world of special effects has grown exponentially. In movies today, people can't tell that some scenes are fake. The only thing separating them from this unreality is logic and knowing that it is humanly impossible to reenact characters' actions in the real world. Since I do not want to completely spoil the plot for the readers, I will end with saying The Matrix has every aspect of a great movie, an original story line, tons of action, and mind blowing effects, so I highly recommend that you watch it.

The Perfect Symbiosis of Action and Philosophy
What is real? How do you define real? This question has been explored for its significance in metaphysics in other movies as well. The Thirteenth Floor is one of them and the other is Dark City. I mention these because they were released more or less around the same time as this movie was released. But these two movies do not enjoy the position and the popularity of this movie - The Matrix, why? Look at the box office success of the Matrix. Look at the popularity of this movie. Advertisements have been created based on the themes of this movie. Most people seem to have heard of the movie if not seen it. The Matrix enjoys a prominent position in the top 50 on the IMDb. Even a list of 100 best movies of all times as compiled by a documentary on the Discovery Channel mentioned this movie as among the top 100.

The key to the enormous success of the Matrix is the symbiotic combination of two opposing elements. The first one being metaphysics or philosophy and the second element being intense amount of action. The Dark City is limited in its action and stresses more on the metaphysics aspect and so does the Thirteenth floor. When you see The Matrix, you see that there is far more metaphysics and philosophy in this movie when compared to the other two. And when you see the action sequences of the movie, the two movies fade into oblivion.

There is so much for the intellectual to busy himself with in this movie. There is a reference to so many mythological places and figures. The character Neo is an anagram of One signifying the One Absolute many cultures believe in and then there is Trinity, an obvious reference to the Holy Trinity. The names of the ships, the numbers on the door, the name of the book Neo takes his CD out from all have a significance, a clue, if that is what one wants to call it. This movie gives enough to the intellectual to study and talk about.

And yet the movie does not fail to capture the attention of the average movie goer. The average movie goer does not want to search for hidden symbols, he does not want to discuss the movie for hours and hours. He wants some action and some fun. The movie gives that as well. The movie has a lot of guns, a lot of chases and a lot of fighting. The average movie goer can appreciate the main aspect of this movie without bothering about all the hidden symbols which the intellectual chooses to see in the movie. Yet, he apparently does not deny himself the spirit of the movie and enjoys it. And I believe this is what has made the movie successful - the reconciliation between action and thrill and metaphysics and philosophy.

This movie deserves all the praise and success that it has got. My personal all-time favorite. I never get tired of talking about it till date and love to see it with my friends if I get the chance.

Welcome to the "REEL" World: Where the Medium IS the Message!
..........................................................from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, COLOMBIA.....and ORLANDO, FL

The Wachowski brothers certainly have a handle on the art of film making for the new millennium! 20 or 30 years in the future, a plethora of both historical and imaginary virtual world venues available at your fingertips, via your virtual reality headgear, you won't be asking yourself, once immersed in the world of your choosing, "Wait, how did I get here and why am I here?"

MATRIX illustrates just how insightful and prophetic Marshall McLuhan's assertion "The Medium is the Message" has proved to be! Does Matrix glorify violence? Is it really original? Does it border on blasphemous? Most of the discussion and critique of MATRIX really seem to miss the point entirely. MATRIX is the essence and epitome of style...not substance.

Through a seamless symbiotic blending of diverse visual and auditory elements, most notably the 360º sequential surround photography of artfully choreographed and precisely executed human action scenes, the Wachowski's have achieved a true re-definition of the cinematic experience, on their own terms.

Engaging, engrossing and bombarding your senses with their signature style, ultimately transporting you to a virtual world much more convincing than any drug-induced one. MATRIX clearly speaks to us in a newly formatted cinematic language. My recommendation: Put aside any negative preconceived notions and just listen....

10* STARS*....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English or Español, are most welcome!

Action, sci-fi and philosophy
The action is an excellent film where science fiction and philosophy come together. I do not know if is made another like this again. I do not know how many times I watched. The other films in the series were also very well timed. A movie I will be able to watch again and again in the future.

Simply the best
I've been a movie buff ever since I saw "Aliens" when I was twelve. I appreciate all genres and elements of film-making as well. In fact, I'm working on shooting my first film right now. I can straight out say, in all honesty, that "The Matrix" was the best film I have ever seen. Beautiful cinematography and direction went well with a masterfully written script. The acting was inspired and believable; the characters vibrant. The action was beyond entertainment in a way I've never seen before. Sure, like all movies, it had flaws, but would you rather whine over its flaws all day or go see it again for the fourth time?

Great film
You walk into this film not knowing what the Matrix is. You take your seat and watch the trailers. The green Warner Brothers (green? you ask) trademark comes up, and without warning you are thrust into the Wachowski brothers grand vision. 2 hours of excitement later, you stumble out of the cinema, knowing what the Matrix is.

This is one great movie. Keanu Reeves is cooler than cool as Neo. The Wachowski brothers skillful direction is brilliant. The special effects sequences will blow you away, did I mention the government lobby scene?

The film starts off with a 'what is real?' first half, and then the first kung-fu sequence makes way for an action- packed, John Woo-esque second half with slomo and style cranked up all the way to the top. Did I mention the government lobby scene?

Keanu becomes Cool Keanu, Carrie-Anne Moss is a real find and Hugo Weaving is perfect in his against typecasting role as the evil Agent Smith.

You may notice in this review that I have not revealed what the Matrix is. Like the trailer says, 'You have to see it for yourself.'

Excellent. Best film of '99. 9/10.

One of the best Sci-Fi Action Movies.
The Matrix was released in 1999 and had an immense impact on pop culture. It's a movie that inspired countless filmmakers and that was widely acclaimed at release. It went on to gross around 500 million U.S.D at the box-office for a budget of 63 million. Directed by the Wachowski brothers (now sisters), and starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss, The Matrix is a sci-fi action movie that takes inspiration from Anime and Kung-Fu flicks.

Neo, a tech geek who's life revolves computers, is told one day that he's the savior of a world in which robots have taken control and that the reality he believes is true is actually all fake. The real world has gone to ashes and everyone is being controled by robots. Canadian actor, Keanu Reeves who is not known for his acting capabilities, fits the role of Neo very well, as does his colleagues for their respective roles. This movie was revolutionary in it's amazing action sequences which feature dazzling special effects that are to this day very impressive. What The Matrix does, that few other 90's action movies were able to do, is to blend amazing action sequences with a story that challenges the watcher and that has a deep message. This movie is famously known for it's futuristic message about technology and society that's innovative and scarily plausible. Obviously, The Matrix couldn't have been as good as it was without the amazing score by Don Davis and the cinematography helmed by Bill Pope. The score mixes electronic and futuristic type beats that fits perfectly the computer imagery that's central to the movie. The cinematography had a big role in the impact of the action scenes. It's beautiful and really different. The « Bullet Time » sequence is still known as a milestone in cinematography and a great achievement. It's a movie that is more suited for youngsters and fans of sci-fi and action but I would still recommend it to anyone who's a fan of quality entertainment.

Sure, the plot of the Matrix is nothing new. We have seen it countless other times, but it has never been done like this and as efficiently. The Matrix is a revolutianary movie that has had an immense impact on cinema. It is one of the very best sci-fi action movie of all time.

10/10 – Amazing.
