What a classic! My love for Keanu is long and this is no exception. The moves, the tunes, it all works here. Best soundtrack! When they go get Morpheus, I get chills every time! Whoa!!!
This movie is a classic and I will watch it every now and then, I feel the visual effects of this movie is unlike any other and the acting is really good. I love the scene when they have to pick between the blue or the red pill. I would recommend this classic for anyone that has not watched it before. If anyone has watched it, they should watch it again.
I love the Matrix trilogy movies! The plot, story, and the deep message behind the story is just amazing. The acting is good, I like the diversity in cast, and the way the story is told is interesting. Definitely the movie series to watch before you die!
Really like this movie. The special effects were like nothing that had ever been done before? The story is a little complicated. It's very sci-fi, which could be good or bad for some people. But, it's got Keanu Reeves in it - what's not to like!
Clearly, this is a classic movie, and I haven't watched it until very recently. There are so many Matrix references that I didn't get before, that now I finally understand! There were a few too many gross parts for me, but overall good movie.
I am not a fan of this movie or the series. I feel it is kinda confusing and hard to follow at times. I have not watched this in a few years, so maybe I just need to retry it and actually pay attention. But, still not my thing.
How can you not love The Matrix!? This is an all time favorite of mine, and it's the first and best of the trilogy. It blew open the lid on AI movies. Sure there was the Terminator, but The Matrix is like a cooler, more sophisticated version. It's part modern action movie + part martial arts film + part sci-fi flic.
This one is a modern day classic. Think what you will about the next two films, but this first one is incredible! A complex storyline with fantastic sequences makes this a film worth watching over and over again.
I am not normally into sci-fi movies, but I love this movie! It has a great story line that kept me engaged. I am normally not a fan of Keanu Reeves, but I really like him in this movie. The special effects were phenomenal.
This is a movie that I can watch over and over again. What an awesome movie with some seriously cool special effects! I wish more movies were like this one!
