Ok, the movie is GREAT, I love it, but this edition did not satisfy my. The dvds are just the same that were released previously, the film and the matrix revisited. No extras, no deleted scenes ( I believe there are none though :) ), no extra making of... Pay more than the lord of the rings - the fellowship of the ring, that even come with the statues, and 5 DVDs, 2 only for the movie, with great compression quality and dts sound. they could at least reencoded the film and removed the documentary from the movie dvd, saving space for better video quality, using more disc space. There are no other languages, but english, both for audio and subs. I regret payin 90 buck for a fake film frame, tha not even has dolby digital sound printed on it, like the Star wars episode 1 vhs special edition had. PLEASE buy the normal combo: the matrix and the matrix revisited, its the same thing for much less money.

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.

Shortly following the DVD release of the first "Matrix" film, Warner Bros. used a smaller studio called Creative Design Art to make a specially designed package to help promote their incredibly successful movie. Their first result was this, the "Platinum Limited Edition DVD Collector's Set," which originally retailed for $79 (or close to that). In my opinion, even if you're a hardcore fan of the Matrix films, this packagejust isn't worth the money, It comes in a box about two-inches thick, which makes you think you're really getting your money's worth, but as soon as you open it up -- you become disappointed. Most of this packaging is taken up by a flimsy plastic tray that contains a 35mm celluloid film frame of with a nice blown-up photo. Then there are 8 "limited edition" lobby cards prints (which are really just postcard-sized stills from the movie), a full-sized poster, and the the same copy of the family you probably already own -- in the standard DVD keep-case (the cheapist kind of DVD packaging). All of the other extras mentioned in this package (full-length audio commentary, "Take The Red Pill" featurette) are the same features found in original DVD release. Although it's Out-Of-Print now, I've noticed you can get one used for around $20, which isn't too bad, but it's probably not even worth the effort if you already own the first movie on DVD.

Warner Bros. wasn't entirely pleased with the sales generated from the Platinum Limited Edition, so they asked Creative Design Art to create a more definitive version for consumers to buy. Their second project was the one shown here, "The Matrix / The Matrix Revisited (The Gold Edition)" which retailed for $100 (and can also be found on Amazon.com).

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.
VERY WELL DONE!!
