    The Matrix is a film that, like Star Wars, I find hard to look at critically. The main reason for this is the ridiculous power of nostalgia and wonder that I get from watching it still, having first seen it when it came out at the age of twelve, and many, many times since.

    And I don't mind, this film is still fantastic, and about as perfect a combination of metaphysical gen-x cyberpunk sci-fi, kung fu, guns, Eastern and Western…

    With all the shitty sequels, prequels, spin-off, fucking etcetera, it is really easy to forget how great The Matrix actually is. Cool world, cool atmosphere, cool metaphors. The action scenes are ridiculous, but I was seeing a tamed, cyberpunk version of Alice in Wonderland, so I embraced it.

    In short an action film inspired by cyberpunk literature, anime, & wuxia films loaded with philosophical/religious imagery/undertones that's tinted green and has a leather fetish. One of the flaws that's not inherit in the film itself but in the real world is that given what I said in the description, "The Matrix" wasn't that original. It made such a splash in the western world because the elements I listed above were not known to the majority of western culture and there…

    An earthshaking premise and a feast for the eyes, The Matrix has earned its place in the sci-fi history books.

    How many cools moments can one film have. This still doesn't get enough credit for originality, action and honestly a great love story. I mean he sacrifices his whole species for trinity in the sequels how much more lovey-dubbby can it get. The sequels almost never reach the rolling coolness of this original, except maybe in revolutions when Neo must terminate the rouge Smith virus. DESERVES A SEQUEL OR PREQUEL NOT A REBOOT. *the only film on this site i have rated a full 5 stars.

    Pacing issues aside, this film works in a way which so many other entries in the genre do not. Loved it even more on this viewing than I did the first time, all those years ago.
