The Matrix

The Matrix(1999)

THE MATRIX is a fun, action packed, dazzling and innovative film. I recently bought the ULTIMATE MATRIX COLLECTION on Blu Ray and the films look better than ever. It begins with a cool opening involving Trinity (Carrie Anne Moss) running from some bad ass dudes with black suits and dark sunglasses (in night time) we later find that these guys are called Agents and they are a force to be reckoned with once your inside THE MATRIX program.

The Matrix is a computer dream world program that people can 'connect' to via a neck connection, and once you're in there you can do anything from kung fu training, running combat simulations, choosing any weapons you want, pretty much anything. We are as confused about The Matrix as Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves) who works behind an office cubicle for a respected software company by day and by night is a known hacker who goes by the name of Neo. Through this hacking medium he is found by Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) who is like a prophet, a God amongst the other Matrix followers. He guides Neo and explains to him what The Matrix truly is and teaches him the difference between reality and the real world while also telling him that there is a war between humans and machines, Morpheus and his crew live in a hovering craft known as the Nebuchadnezzer and they fear the Sentinels, these robotic squid like flying machines that shoot out laser from their tiny mouths.

Once you get to see the film for a second time, you understand more about what The Matrix is really about. Morpheus believes that Neo is THE ONE, the person who can end the war between humans and machine. It's an interesting story that's filled with original ideas and an awesome action packed climax involving Neo, Morpheus and Trinity.
