The Legacy of The Matrix
1999 was one of the most important years for modern cinema. Ten years on, we're celebrating a remarkable twelve months of movies with new features around some of the year's best and most important releases. The Matrix was the phenomenon which made George Lucas' serial-style adventure seem as quaint as tie-dye loon pants.

Join RT as we explore ten movies released in the ten years since The Matrix came out that owe a little something to one of 1999's most exciting releases.
