Then go deeper with a look forward into the reality that is unfolding in real time: the sequels simmering to life at hidden locations around the world; an eye-popping first glace into The Matrix Anime - new

The Matrix
With The Matrix, Andy and Larry Wachowski crafted one of the most exhilarating sci-fi/action movies of the 1990s. In the not too distant future in an insipid, characterless city, a young man named Neo (Keanu Reeves) sits alone at home by his monitor, waiting for a sign--from what or whom he doesn't know--until one night, a mysterious woman named Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) introduces him to Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne). A messiah of sorts, Morpheus presents Neo with the truth about his world by shedding light on what the Matrix is--a reality beyond reality that controls everyone's lives, in a way Neo can barely comprehend. With mind-boggling, technically innovative special effects and a thought-provoking script that owes a debt of inspiration to the legacy of cyberpunk fiction, this is a thinking man's journey into the realm of futuristic fantasy, a dreamscape full of eye candy that will satisfy sci-fi, kung fu, action, and adventure fans alike. --Jeremy Storey

The Matrix Revisited
A fitting supplement to the feature-packed Matrix DVD, The Matrix Revisited provides a wealth of Matrix arcana, delivered by the 1999 blockbuster's principal cast and crew. The main course in this 163-minute feast is a two-hour documentary covering virtually every aspect of production, with teasing glimpses of fight training on the not-yet-released Matrix sequels. Of greater interest is the sheer depth of filmmaking coverage, with intelligent and amusing anecdotes and insights from all the major players (including graphic artist Geof Darrow, given overdue credit for his outstanding conceptual designs). Fight choreographer Yuen Wo-Ping is also a fascinating subject, and his early action-blocking videos are included for comparative study. Another segment allows obsessive fans to express their fanatical zeal for all things Matrix, and a look at the in-production Matrix anime project gives them another source of inspiration. While you're pondering which pill to take (red or blue?), The Matrix Revisited should help you decide. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars billions oblivious March 6, 2003
By A Customer
Huge entertainment. The story addresses such hitherto unsolved human problems as the conflict between fate and free will, the true (?) nature of reality, the oppression of the individual by the system, the crushing of creativity by the bureaucratic machine, the silence of the deity, the power of self-belief, the traitor within every organisation, the hope of escape, the dream of annihilating the faceless suits, and the fantasy of redemption by faith and love. It targets the nerd within all of us (all of us?). It urges us to take the red pill, not settle for safety, steak and french fries. It reduces the rest of the world and mankind to the mindless, knee-jerk, pavlovian, birth-conditioned ant-heap that it is. All the parts are excellently performed, right in line. Great stuff, wondrously executed. Maybe just a little too much kung-fu.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOOOOOOT BAAAAD!, November 25, 2001
By Nettie
If you're a fan of the hit movie "THE MATRIX" you have GOT to own this DVD. It goes even deeper down the rabbit hole than ever thought imaginable to give us an insight of the inner working of the brothers Wachowski's brain.
These two fine fellows have a magical way of bringing their ideas to reality and I take my hat off to them.
The enthusiasm they generate rubs off on all the cast and crew and I wait with bated breath for the next two Matrix movies. This is going to be the trilogy to top all trilogies.
I love getting all the background information ~ conceptual, musical, editorial, graphical and the makers of The Matrix have outdone themselves with providing everything the avid fan wants and they also dangle the carrot before our eyes with what's to come.
The cast went through "merry" hell to deliver the goods on this movie and KUDOS to you, especially Keanu Reeves who for most of the time was recovering from neck surgery.
I agree with all and sundry and this film should have got more Oscar nods, but let's hope that The Academy do not fail next time to give credit to whom it is long overdue for the amazing piece of filmaking that is The Matrix.
I would also add that I am very pleased that they included what the fans are saying because this film has generated fandom as never before. I would have liked to have been involved more with the international get together's and friendship this movie has made for the fans out there. Congratulations to "KYOTE", "KIRA", "AKS" and "LUCID DREAM" for getting their perspective out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you hunger for the sequels! June 13, 2002
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Seeing is believing and only by watching this ground-breaking film on DVD can you truly appreciate the wonder and the majesty of its technique and the talents behind it. The movie is almost forgotten in the joy of exploring the extras included, but once you finally get to it, KA-POW, man, you're blown away.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Woah" June 7, 2002
By A Customer
Truly an a amazing movie. With a deep, multifaceted plot and revolutionary special effects, The Matrix is everything that an action/sci-fi movie should be. Although Keanu Reeves is mindlessly inept as an actor, Laurence Fishburne, his mysterious mentor, and Hugo Weaving, the emotionless, robotic nemesis, Agent Smith, easily pick up the slack. The Matrix is truly a stylish and interesting adventure into the "desert of the real."
