The Matrix (1999)
Genre: Science-fiction, Action,
Directors: The Wachowskis
Starring: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Hugo Weaving
A hacker learns the true nature of reality from a group of underground rebels. Is he the key to save them all from this desolate future of enslavement?
This movie may not make much sense if you think about the science, but throw all of that out. This is a fun movie which Keanue Reeves turned out to be perfect for. The action is amazing, the visuals at the time were groundbreaking. I really thought that the Wachowski’s were going to have this brilliant future ahead of them. (What the hell happened?)
This movie is fun to interpret in our world today. Are we slaves to our technology or is it the other way around? (We all know the answer.) Is the world exactly how we perceive it or is there something greater that we are missing?
This movie is a lot of fun to watch. Great action and visuals. I love Laurence Fishburne in this role as Morpheus (Totally makes up for Keanu Reeves being average).
This movie really took filmmaking in the present time to another level. (This and Titanic in 1997)
