The shame here is that the animation is really top notch, and in many instances surpasses the live action film it was meant to supplement, the Matrix Reloaded. But the stories are designed as just that, supplements, additional bits that are intrinsically unnecessary, filler, and this outlook torpedoes the efforts of the artists. "Much ado about nothing," is the unfortunate takeaway when so much more possibility exists on the screen. A lost opportunity.

Truly a masterpiece of CG animation. Pixar has yet to do better. So good it bankrupt a production company it was just so awesome.

An interesting short that fits great with the other Matrix movies while exploring new grounds. The animation is great, and the story is pretty good for a film that lasts under 20 minutes. There is a bit of sexual stuff in the beginning and some blood throughout, but it's an entertaining short that not only sets up the basics for the 2nd and 3rd film, but also a video game. It's worth a look into if you enjoyed any of The Matrix films, and is the best of the Animatrix shorts in my opinion.

"The Final Flight of the Osiris" is the first of the "Animatrix" lot, and of all computer-animated films I know of, this one still shows superior quality. Characters look incredibly life-like at times; by modern standards, it resembles a video game clip more than anything, but considering that there aren't a whole lot of CGI movies with human characters, this film is quite impressive. It's a short, action-packed, and fairly invoking. Above all, it helps bridge the gap between the first two Matrix movies.

On its own, I grade it a 5/5, and it is one of the biggest reasons to check out the "Animatrix" collection.

some of these kick your ass, go for a walk, and return to kick your ass again once more, with feeling.

You've just stepped to the edge of the looking glass.

The animation was brilliant and the voice acting was good but it was simply just too short to becomes truly brilliant. However, it did serve as an appropriate appetizer for The Matrix sequels and I loved the way it linked into the main story.

I didn't really like these Animatrix films.

Saw this as a trailer in the cinema before Stephen King's Dreamcatcher. This was way better than the film. Amazing animation.

The computer animation is just great and tells about the beginning of the machines trying to attack Zion, so this would fit between The Matrix (1999) and its sequel. Good job.

84/100

P.D. SEE "The Animatrix (2003)" review.

it was ok. I can't see why everyone was raving about it so much.

The individual shorts are subjective, but as a whole, this is an beautiful and deep mythos in the world of The Matrix.

Better than the live-action films, The Animatrix is an entertaining animated anthology with each segment containing wonderful animation (especially in Final Flight of the Osiris which successfully retains the breathtaking photorealistic CGI from Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within), the more action-y moments in the segments are as good as the action sequences in the live-action trilogy and benefits from excellent voice acting making this direct-to-video animated anthology damn good fun.

A well-made collection of nine short stories conceived as a companion piece to The Matrix Reloaded and exclusively for those acquainted with its universe, but the animation design is uneven from one story to another and they don't offer much besides what we already know.

Asombrosa, épica, aterradora, poderosa, inteligente, creativa y vivaz.

Exploración y explotación del concepto original de forma magistral, transformándose en un compendio de historias tan o más interesantes y sólidas, que la cinta original del 99.
