    "Ohh, what's really going to bake your noodle later on is, would you still have broken it if I hadn't said anything?"

    The Matrix is an amazing film on so many levels. The philosophical aspects of the movie can really mess with the viewers mind in what truly is "real". The directors are outstanding and they make the action scenes and violence more of an art and the visuals are incredible. I also appreciated the reflections on the sunglasses and the spoon.

    The blue pill or the red pill? What will you choose? Before watching this movie, that's all I knew about it. That and there was a digital world called the Matrix. After watching it, I thought it was decently made. It definitely got me hooked for the other two films. This was also my first time watching it, so I had no clue what to expect and when. If you're looking for a somewhat sci-fi cult classic that everyone should watch, I would suggest this movie. There are some confusing parts but it made sense in the end.

    This is the first time I've watched it in a decade, maybe more. Gotta be one of the goofiest movies ever; I had a giant grin for almost the entire running time. The "real world" stuff feels pretty blandly directed, but once they're in the Matrix the Wachowski's unleash all kinds of tricks, and if their action isn't master-level technique it still feels competent. The bullet time grace notes have taken on an almost comic, absurd quality over time. This is also a defining Keanu work; he reaches pure perfection here.

    This is a very good, strong movie. It fully realizes the world it creates, brings us into it with proper explanation and even gets to have fun with it. The performances are all-around strong and the action is pretty great. Would I qualify this as a great movie, though? Well ... not quite. I do think the movie's requirement to throw so much information and exposition at you in the first half gives the film a kind of touch-and-go pace…

    (Red pill) you will see the true ways of film making, (Blue pill) you can go back to crappy remakes and prequel's "chose"

    Hugo Weaving steals the show. Will this movie ever feel dated (besides for the cell phones, of course)?

    Sweet nostalgia, this might be the most 90s movie I've seen in quite a long time.

    I know the art of cinema is capable of infinitely more depth, humanity and philosophical meaning than what’s explored in The Matrix, yet, over the years, when I revisit the Wachowski’s seminal 90’s epic, I feel like throwing my hands up and calling this the greatest movie ever made. Which it isn’t, okay?! Obviously! But still. Isn’t it? This film has everything: it’s dense with ideas and brimming with style; it jumps from one extraordinary setpiece to the next, expertly; there’s inventiveness in every shot; it’s dual worlds are detailed and fully realized. It kicks ass on every single level.

    In a decade full of wondrous and revolutionary masterpieces, the Wachowski Brothers' The Matrix is possibly the most groundbreaking. Legendary for its innovative special effects, exhilarating action setpieces and genre defining science fiction concept, The Matrix has influenced countless films and added a new breed to an almost endangered genre that continues rehash once great material.

    It's supposed take on religious motifs is massively overrated, and it's probably half an hour too long when it indulges in tiresome action sequences. Despite this, The Matrix is smartly written, visually impressive and does a great job at making Keanu Reeves bearable.
