Storyline: Thomas A. Anderson is a man living two lives. By day he is an average computer programmer and by night a hacker known as Neo. Neo has always questioned his reality, but the truth is far beyond his imagination. Neo finds himself targeted by the police when he is contacted by Morpheus, a legendary computer hacker branded a terrorist by the government. Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity have been captured by a race of machines that live off of the humans' body heat and electrochemical energy and who imprison their minds within an artificial reality known as the Matrix. As a rebel against the machines, Neo must return to the Matrix and confront the agents: super-powerful computer programs devoted to snuffing out Neo and the entire human rebellion.

An above average score for an above average film.
The Matrix brought in a mixed bag of both good and bad. On one side, its original story and setup for the next film is great, while on the other side, its mediocre acting, and aging visuals keep me from truly loving this film. So with that, I decided to give The Matrix a "Good" on theVade Review Bar or a 7 out of 10. An above average score for an above average film.

The Matrix" is a visually dazzling cyberadventure, full of kinetic excitement, but it retreats to formula just when it's getting interesting. It's kind of a letdown when a movie begins by redefining the nature of reality, and ends with a shoot-out. We want a leap of the imagination, not one of those obligatory climaxes with automatic weapons fire.
Descartes Would Have Been Proud
Spoilers Ahead:

The brothers obviously have read a lot of Rene Descartes, his first meditation you hear Morpeus quote from: how could you tell a dream from the real world? This was the problem of answering empirical skepticism which he spent the whole work pursuing. The movie's writing, its philosophical depth, is often lost amidst the excellent action movie surrounding it. Why it works so well is even the first showing you never are sure who is right The Oracle or Morpheus? It plays with you all the way until the end with Neo apparently dying from Smith emptying a whole clip into him. I would like to point out to you the moments I loved as a philosopher. My favorite: when Neo sees the Matrix, notice this proceeds his invincibility: what an excellent existential metaphor for human existence. Yes, my friends, see the phenomenal matrix about you it is just as unreal. He stares at everything eyes filled with astonishment everything is an illusion. This is what Morpheus had been trying to get him to understand the entire movie. "You think that is real air you are breathing?" The philosophical power of the movie is why it resonates by the way. This epiphany of seeing the Matrix as the phenomenal construct of his mind has implications that are quite transposable to the 'real world' our minds construct for us.

The red or the blue pill? How many people do you know that are like Cypher? They want the blue pill oblivious to it being a world of deceit and illusion, again, what a metaphor for so many people, they prefer a happy lie to an unhappy truth. I love the movie for it conveys the struggle of Neo; we wish it for him as he fights and fails. This is the core of its success in contrast to the sequels. He fails the building jump, the fight with Morpeus and the subway showdown with Agent Smith. When I saw this there was an audible gasp when The Oracle says that Morpheus is mistaken and delusional. Even by this point, the audience is so wrapped up in rooting for Neo to be The One that it showed how well it had grabbed hold of the viewers. You never know until the very end when he resurrects and stands back up. Action movies' fate are predicated upon the strength or weakness of their villains: find me a better villain than Agent Smith,"Human beings are a disease; we are the cure." He looks upon us as loathsome, bad smelling, meat sacks which he destroys whenever he gets the chance.

The battle to be The One, his many failings and our doubts followed by his majestic rise up from the floor, this is why this became a masterpiece. The action is breathtaking with state of the art effects that still are great to see. This can be said for many bad modern films; what differentiates this is the Quest Motif of the Hero Archetype. Within the movie are profound questions of epistemology: What is Truth and would you prefer a pleasure filled illusion to a stark, cold and dangerous world of truth? How can I tell what is real from what is illusion? Also, how controllers use pleasureful lies to control their slaves. See if you can find another movie so deeply filled with the central questions of philosophy? Descartes' solution was that he had certain 'clear and distinct' ideas the negation of which was a contradiction. God would never have made his mind oppose itself like this, such as 2 plus 2 equals four, ergo, the phenomenal world must be real. I know, if you desire better answers read Immanuel Kant's Critique Of Pure Reason. This is a stand alone masterpiece with great philosophical depth. Almost twenty years old and it still resonates as well as it did when it was released. I never blame the brothers for the sequels, this film can never be part of a series; it is a one of a kind classic. Enjoy! Q.E.D.

Raises the bar for sci-fi films for years to come
The Wachowski Brothers vision of a possible future takes the visual and sound aspects of filmmaking to a new high. Incorporating older still photography with computer enhancement to the degree that appears on the screen has raised the genre to a level that will be very hard-pressed by filmmakers for a number of years. Acting was wonderful, script, visual, sound, everything about this film is a tribute to a usually overlooked genre.
one word perfect

Great film
You walk into this film not knowing what the Matrix is. You take your seat and watch the trailers. The green Warner Brothers (green? you ask) trademark comes up, and without warning you are thrust into the Wachowski brothers grand vision. 2 hours of excitement later, you stumble out of the cinema, knowing what the Matrix is.

This is one great movie. Keanu Reeves is cooler than cool as Neo. The Wachowski brothers skillful direction is brilliant. The special effects sequences will blow you away, did I mention the government lobby scene?

The film starts off with a 'what is real?' first half, and then the first kung-fu sequence makes way for an action- packed, John Woo-esque second half with slomo and style cranked up all the way to the top. Did I mention the government lobby scene?

Keanu becomes Cool Keanu, Carrie-Anne Moss is a real find and Hugo Weaving is perfect in his against typecasting role as the evil Agent Smith.

You may notice in this review that I have not revealed what the Matrix is. Like the trailer says, 'You have to see it for yourself.'

Excellent. Best film of '99. 9/10.
The more you watch it, the better it gets
The Wachowski brothers really did excel themselves with this movie. It's a brilliant movie on a number of different levels - the directing is excellent, the camera work is great, the visuals are stunning, the kung-fu is A+, acting is executed with style and conviction, and the plot is truly inspired. It's really hard to use enough superlatives on this movie!

It'd be a 10/10, except for the ending. Having Neo do what he does at the end really lets it down, in my opinion. However, there's a couple of sequels on the way, so let's see what the Wachowskis can do to make up for it.

Other than that, (and like I said above) the movie is operating on so many different levels that each time you watch it, you pick up something new... this isn't by accident, either. The Wachowski brothers had the actors read a number of definitive works (Simulation & Simulcra was one I believe) in modern literature and psychology, and applied liberal dashings of aspects of the major religions to provide the best sci-fi movie of the decade, if not ever.

I'm yet to meet somebody who hasn't enjoyed it. It's my favourite movie to watch on a good cinema system, too.
Knocks on the Door of Greatness
There is a connection to be made between The Wachowski sibling's stylishly heady Matrix Trilogy (1999-2003) and Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975). Hear me out; the silly jokes and outlandish scenarios of Holy Grail has been repeated, referenced or emulated in multiple movies, television shows and among the viewing public for well over a generation. So much so that when I first watched Holy Grail in college I was not as amused as I should have been simply because everything looked and felt old hat to me.

The spirited youth of today probably get the same woebegone sense of déjà vu when sitting back to watch The Matrix (1999), a film so revolutionary for the sci-fi action genre that it's techniques have been repeated ad nauseam. Bullet time, view morphing, digital rain, all used and popularized by The Matrix. the effects were so revolutionary in-fact that they won the film four technical awards at the year 2000 Oscar ceremony beating out the likes of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999) which believe it or not was the odds on favorite.

The story of Neo (Keanu Reeves) is a pretty straightforward hero's tale. An office drone of little importance discovers a group of rebel hackers who think he's their salvation against their enemy. Simple right? Their enemy…*spoilers*…is killer A.I. which has destroyed the world and cloned humans as part of an organic battery farm to power complex machines and robots. Those cloned sleep in a stasis, dreaming the same dream creating the world Neo thinks he knows, also known as the Matrix.

The Matrix isn't just known for its special-effects and blockbuster sensibilities, its also known for contemplating theories about human consciousness and philosophical theory. These are weighty themes that the Wachowskis would return to in Cloud Atlas (2012) yet here the thought process is more cogent and even frightening to contemplate. Is the world truly what we perceive, taste and feel? Or is there something outside of ourselves, controlling us to serve sinister ends.

Heaven, hell, allegory of the cave, it's all in there in a diluted format and packaged for easy consumption. Yet even for all its kung fu and bullet dodging the movie didn't make as big a splash as one would have hoped. It wasn't until after it was released on VHS and the burgeoning DVD market that the film became a full-blown success worthy of lesser sequels. And once people actually saw it; watch out! Not since the criminally underrated Dark City (1998) had people been exposed to such radical ideas in films. College courses started studying the film, fanboys raved and discussed the film at length, even a cottage industry of animes based on the films sprouted up (there is much contention as to whether The Matrix was a blatant rip-off or homage to Mamoru Oshii's Ghost in the Shell (1995)).

Today The Matrix is considered a benchmark of science fiction films taking its place among Blade Runner (1982) and Star Wars (1977) as a flick worthy of intense analysis and debate and passionate fandom by those who enjoy such things. Will following generations continue to pay homage to it? Keep it in the pristine echelons of sci-fi greatness? Or will The Matrix and its sequels be relegated to almost-classics like Logan's Run (1976) and Soylent Green (1973)? My sincere hope is people won't decide to tune into something completely different.
A Sci-fi classic

The Matrix is a legendary Sci-Fi film with big effects, action and adventure and serves up a superb film that can thoroughly be enjoyed. With it's story with a thousand pieces, watching it is like a jigsaw with pieces added in over and over making for a plot which is well done and thought out. Some consider it a classic and it is easy to see why, the effects are well done and the cast do an OK job too and coupled with the plot and just even little things the creators have put in, it turns out to be Brilliant and pretty flawless, and here is why I think so below this.

The story is fast, explaining all the things going on well and letting the viewer take things in gently but by the end the story accelerates and the action and adventure kicks in, a beautiful balance. As I said the plot is smart and slick and for us the viewer predicting what is next cannot be guessed, even if you know the basic plot, too much happens to know at all what is happening. Within the story we have all the famous slow motion fight scenes and they do wonders for the film which succeeds with a perfect mix of violence but drama, thrilling yet witty, it all goes well and I couldn't tell you to watch this more, if you haven't already.

I felt the cast aren't the best in this and Keanu Reeves in the lead role is kind of stale and dull, very emotionless, but he doesn't do his job that badly that the film is also Poor. Laurence Fishburne is OK in his role and even if you think he is being emotionless that is just what Morpheus is like anyway so his role is fine. Everyone else is fine but no one excels in the entire cast and if anything the acting is this movies weakest part, but it isn't bad though. Finally on the characters they are fun, dark thinking and always serious but with a good mix of Neo(he is oblivious) we see a fun start but by the end everything everyone needs to know is already taken down.

The Wachowski brothers do a great job with this, and to say this is there biggest hit, well it really is and by far as it is well directed by them and also written by them in a great way too. It serves up to be fun but dramatic and although the fun side isn't expressed greatly, the drama is good enough for it to be superb and the brothers knew what they were doing here. I loved the effects, and to say they are in 1999 it is even better with some fantastic things on show and great choreographed fight scenes(with a little effect added in) which are just great to see with the eye, even if a little violent at times, and maybe comic book style.

The film can be too violent so maybe not for those who dislike that kind of thing, the story I guess for some could be confusing and if you don't listen to the entire story then you will lose what the whole point of what there doing is about. Overall not too many criticisms but I said about the acting and maybe the film is slow, but for those who watch I think it is up to you to see any criticism, I am sure some will dislike this movie so just have a watch and see what you think.

People who enjoy a good action film wrapped in a smart plot will love this and I couldn't tell them to see this more. Sci-Fi movie fans will also love it and with such a rich Sci-Fi script and special effects it could be some peoples favourite movie by the end of the film, also in that mix the fight scenes could gain fans by themselves as little movies before or since have implemented such an interesting and fast Sci-Fi action film, dabbled with a little mystery.

I give it a 9/10 meaning I thought it was just about a wonderful film, and it is just stunning, if you attempt to rate this you get thrown up with the acting and then the story, the special effects but is it too confusing, but by the end you just feel you have seen a superb movie that you enjoyed to the fullest. With the sequels regarded as some of the worst sequels ever you can just sit back and savour the first one and who knows, maybe you will enjoy the other instalments too.
There is No Spoon
The Matrix is one of the most iconic sci-fi movies in all of cinema history. The story follows a computer hacker named Neo who discovers that all life on Earth is nothing, but an elaborate ruse created by cyberbeings who use human beings for fuel in the real world. Neo escapes from his world known as the Matrix to find out the truth, that everything he thought was real was just a facade. The main premise of The Matrix revolves around the concept of reality and how we perceive it. This premise is most explicated by the famous "There is No Spoon" scene. What makes this scene so important is its ability to explain The Matrix, and how it questions our thoughts on expectations and reality.

The scene starts when Neo is sent to the home of the Oracle, the so called "mother" of the Matrix. Neo enters the Oracle's home where he sees a child bending metal spoons. Neo is mesmerized by the bending spoon which appears to be manipulated by the child's mind. The child gives the spoon to Neo and says to him "Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth…. there is no spoon…. then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself." (The Matrix). Neo then looks at the spoon and tilts his head. As he moves his head the spoon bends and mimics his movements. The dialogue in this scene perfectly sums up the primary purpose of the movie by questioning reality. The child is saying that the spoon only exists in the Matrix. Knowing that the spoon was not real allowed Neo to bend it with his mind. We know that bending a spoon with our mind is impossible, but once we are told that the spoon does not exist we are given a new perception. If the spoon does not exist, we can perceive and manipulate it however we see fit. This scene reveals the truth behind the matrix. The matrix is only real if you perceive it to be real, knowing that it is not real allows Neo to shape the matrix however he wants. The child is conveying that the world inside the Matrix is an illusion and it does not exist like the spoon. The spoon in this scene is meant to represent the Matrix itself. This scene explains how Neo can perform all the unnatural feats throughout the movie. To escape from the reality of the matrix, Neo must free his mind because it is his mind that interpret and define what is real. Just by accepting that the matrix is not real he is able to move in superhuman speeds, jump extreme distances, fight in hand to hand combat, and fly.

The world as we know it is governed by laws of physics and probability. The Matrix brings up a philosophical question on whether these laws are our true reality. Everything we can see, touch, and feel are what we perceive to be real. Our reality is set with expectations, when we go to sleep at night we expect to wake up in the morning. When the sun sets we expect it to rise again. The Matrix questions whether our expectations and reality can be manipulated. If you don't believe that the sun exists your reality is, you don't expect it to rise in the morning. When Neo is told that the spoon is not real he was able to move it. To manipulate your reality is as easy as changing your beliefs and blindly following them. Neo is also told that it is not the spoon that bends, it is himself. This brings up another question, whether reality is fixed and cannot be changed. If the spoon is in fact not real Neo is faced with a choice, whether to accept the reality. If Neo chooses to accept the reality he will be able to bend the spoon. Choosing to either accept or decline the reality allows Neo to bend his own perception because of his power of choice. This concept of choice is what drives Neo throughout the rest of the plot in the movie. Neo is faced with the choice to believe in the laws of science, if the Matrix is real, or if there really is a spoon.

The Matrix in my opinion is one of the greatest movies ever created. It isn't just your average sci-fi action flick, it asks interesting and introspective questions about our existence and how we live our lives. The movie is both brilliant and entertaining. There is no doubt that The Matrix is one of a kind.
