5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-Ray Transfer Is Fantastic! March 6, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
With over 2,000 reviews, there is no sense discussing the movie so I will just address this to readers wondering if the Blu-Ray transfer is as good as they, perhaps, have heard.

Yes, it is - it's incredble. I am not a particular fan of the film, especially the sequels, so I say these remarks with no bias. I just rented this first "Matrix" to see how it looked. Well, it Blu (pun intended) me away!! At this point, I've seen around 50 Blu-Ray DVDs and this is as good as it gets. I can't imagine how you could make it any better. It's so sharp, I just sat there mesmerized by it. The sound also is outstanding....another upgrade. I've seen this movie three times now and I swear I heard a lot of background talk and stuff I never heard before.

So....if you read that the audio and visuals are 5-star caliber - believe it; it's true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Movie's Great...This Package, Not So December 8, 2000
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Matrix is an excellent movie that combines science fiction, shoot-em-up action, and philosophical questions about the nature of Reality. If you are plugged in to a computer, and that computer presents you with a reality that is completely indistinguishable from your own, is it any less real?
This movie has exceptional special effects, beautiful cinematography, an excellent soundtrack, well-crafted dialogue, and respectable acting. Keanu Reeves may be a lousy actor, but I think that the Matrix is probably his best performance to date.
The Platinum Limited Edition isn't really worth the extra money unless you're an absolute, die-hard, take the red pill, freak. I wish I had known that before ordering this product. It comes in a box about as thick as an encyclopedia, and is fairly large, so it won't fit on the shelf with the rest of your DVDs. Opening it up, I was rather disappointed -- most of the volume is filled with a cheap plastic tray that contains a celluloid clip of the film with a blown-up photo (decent, but nothing fantastic), a few postcard-sized stills from the movie, and a copy of the normal DVD in a normal case. Nothing fantastic. For this money, I was expecting a DVD with DTS sound, alternate angles, deleted scenes, etc., but just got the same old Matrix disc. A major drag.
Do yourself a favor. Buy the basic copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Anything You've Seen Before November 19, 2000
Format:DVD
(What is the Matrix). In 1977, George Lucas changed the landscape of cinematic Science Fiction forever with "Star Wars," taking the genre light years ahead of all that preceded it. Such a momentous advancement would not be seen again for over twenty years, when, in 1999, the Wachowski Brothers raised the bar again, taking the genre at warp speed to an unprecedented level with their astoundingly innovative film, "The Matrix." Co-directed, written and produced by Larry and Andy Wachowski, it is an allegory of salvation and redemption filled with symbolism and metaphor (the Biblical references alone should keep theology students debating this one for years to come); a thinking man's action film, accentuated with moments that are no less than profound. In a world of the future, things are literally not what they seem, where it's Man versus Machine, Reality versus Fantasy, and few who know the truth; among those who do, is Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), who has long awaited the arrival of "The One," who it has been prophesied will be the salvation of the world. Enter Neo (Keanu Reeves), a computer programmer with an innate sense of discrepancy as to the state of things around him; he has questions, most of which are still in the process of being formulated in his own mind. (What is the Matrix). Morpheus has answers. And when they meet, it's Alice down the rabbit hole, and Neo's life is changed forever. Reeves is perfectly cast as Neo, the enigmatic young man who may or may not be "The One," and it's one of the best roles of his career. He conveys a sense of removed, distracted urgency that defines his character, infusing him with both a strength and vulnerability that coalesces as the story progresses into determination and confidence.

Format:DVD
amongst my whole entire collection of dvd's from A-Z, "the matrix-limited editon collector's set" is by far one of my most prized possessions in my arsenal, just the movie alone speaks for itself! but when you've got the actual soundtrack, movie stills, lobby cards, posters and a limited edition 8mm movie filmstrip to add to it....you're literally left speechless, it took awhile for this to arrive to me, but considering the fact that it's virtually impossible to find this item anywhere else, it was all worth the wait, definitely an add-on to your collection....and u could say...(depending on your taste)u could consider this to be the ICING on your cake...and with the sequal soon to come out in theatres, this will be an even HARDER item to find in the future....so don't let "NEO" down, get this classic action/thriller NOW!......5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect DVD of perfect movie December 2, 1999
Format:DVD
I bought Matrix a week age, but I have seen it 4 times already. Picture & sound quality are perfect ! If you have a good sound system, turn it up and you will feel yourself in the Matrix too ! The "Follow the White Rabbit" is excellent ! As well as the introduction to the Bullet-time technique. There is no multi-angle view on the DVD, but the movie itself is full of mult-angle views anyway. Unfortunately nobody can be told how good the Matrix DVD is, you have to see it for yourself !

5.0 out of 5 stars Still great, 15 years later
The Matrix is a sci-fi classic. Every time I watch it, new details pop out that I hadn't noticed before. Check out the TV in the scene at the waiting room in the Oracle's house.

1.0 out of 5 stars Low quality. Buy the DVD!
Amazed at the low quality of the rendition. The colors were off and so were the contrast, with extreme whites and blacks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Follow the white rabbit Neo!
One of my favorite action dramas. A "must have" for home theater fans Morpheus rescue scene alone. Should be on a list for top blu-ray movies of all time.

Is this any different than "The Matrix" in the Ultimate Collection?
Lets see $75 for 3, that's $25 a movie. I'll pay 25 for the Matrix, the other ones are stinkers.

what is 2.34:1 aspect ratio?
This will fit any screen. Widescreen TVs have an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 (16 divided by 9); the 4x3 TVs have a ratio of 1.33:1. Movies are usually shot in ratios of 1.85:1 or 2.35:1. When shown on a widescreen TV, movies with a "higher" aspect ratio will end up having black bars at... Read more

Yeah, that sucks. I don't know why they aren't ready for this kind of stuff, but it happens. I know it happened when WALL-E was released. Disney took care of it though. I'd look on WB's site to see if there was a way to email their customer service about this or something. Honestly though,... Read more
