when you can make something so fundamentally geeky cool and appealing, you did alright. a game changer in film industry.... i cherish the experience of coming out of the theatre and feeling like your brain is hurting a little bit cause the film just hammered you right in the head... not sure what you just saw...
Great philosophy on realism and whether to trust on your own perception. The action scenes are definitely an instant classic. A defining performance by Keanu Reeves. If we have one word to describe Keanu Reeves, it is always "Matrix".
It suffers from a little too much exposition, and some nonsensical plot elements, but The Matrix has enough thrilling action and smart social commentary to be an a thoughtful and entertaining blockbuster.
