Picture Quality: 4.5/5
The Matrix was shot on 35MM film, so the film grain is more prevalent with the higher resolution. but there is much to be happy about with this new transfer, the uptick in resolution reveals fine details in the costuming, actor faces, and production design and with Dolby Vision HDR, The Colors are bolder and more vivid, more natural , contrast is impeccable, and the black levels are super inky. My jaw was on the floor the whole time...I couldn't believe I was watching a 19 year old movie. Although there were a few scenes with a touch of softness, the Picture quality was almost perfect, and it was in every which way, the best viewing of this movie that I had ever experienced. (I've owned the DVD, HD-DVD and Blu-ray sets before this)
Sound Quality: 5/5
This 4K set has a new Dolby Atmos mix that is reference quality and will be your go to disc, to demo off to your friends and family! Great use of overhead sounds. nice crisp, clear dialogue, everything just sounds so clean and dynamic. LFE levels are also impressive...you feel every gunshot and explosion with heart-pounding grunt.
(**WARNING Spoiler alert ahead.**) I damn near thought my sub woofer was going to knock my house off its foundation near the end when Agent Smith explodes and Neo is inside of him, sending that pulsating shock wave inside of the Matrix.
This 4K upgrade is worth every penny!
Then in the 'real world' all the ninja stuff Neo and Trinity do is still awesome action. Bullettime filming isn't innovative anymore but it still looks cool in an action movie.
The story holds up well. (On this one. The sequels didn't hold up long enough to get through the first screening the day they came out) As it's core this is still a story about the duality of consciousness and its just incredibly well put together. When Morpheus offers the red/blue pill choice...that scene still has a lot of depth to it on a psychological level.
Oh, and in HD the visuals in The Matrix just crush it. It is a whole different experience in HD. I remember getting this on DVD when it first came out and DVD players were all the rage. I couldn't believe how amazing this looked back then in 480i on a 30 inch screen with the digital DVD presentation. Not on a 60 inch 1080p screen this is visually jaw dropping.
I was nervous about rewatching this movie as it's one of my all time favorites and I haven't seen it in about 10 years. I was worried that it would seem totally cheesy now and it would ruin the memory of it. But that doesn't happen at all. It holds up very well.
