    Fun sci-fi, and great special effects, but I have never found it to be quite the classic that everyone claims it is.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This movie is nearly flawless. I just love it. Relentlessly great right through the end credits, with Rage Against The Machine pumping out the immortal WAKE UUUUP!!!

    There's so much texture, grit and campy action. If only they had left out the scene where Trinity kisses Neo back to life through the telephone. That was kinda cringe-inducing. I think they misplayed it a little.

    The Terminator/X-Men: Days of Future Past/The Host/Divergent/The Lego Movie ? Obviously with the exception of the first one, all those movies must have been inspired by various aspects of 'The Matrix', which is a pretty impressive span of influence for just one film.
    Though the fighting choreography was a little corny for a viewer whose seen 16 years of improved special effects since this film's release, the idea behind the Matrix is a unique spin on the "robots take over…

    As expected, it lost some of its wow factor, although it still holds up. Like every revolutionary popculture sensation, it has been copied to death, but it also remains the best! After 16 years of action movies with slow motion Wire Fu and bullet time shoot outs, the visual precision and craftsmanship of this movie still remains unsurpassed. And the script is still as tight as a 2 hour movie that mixes cyberpunk, SciFi, philosophy and fantasy elements can be. Sure, it has its plotholes, but I still can’t think of any frame that I would remove from it.

    "What is real? How do you define 'real'? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain."

    HOLY F**KING SHIT! What a way to end my 30 Days of 90s Action. I remember watching this movie in the theaters at just 5 years old, and truly remember being blown away by what was on-screen. Though not being able to understand some…

    This film established my appreciation for what goes on beyond the cinema screen and what is presented to us. In fact, my first ever short documentary was on this film's expert use of the green screen, travelling matte & perfection of bullet time.

    Still holds up as the modern sci-fi classic that it is. Totally enjoyable.
