THE MATRIX
Groundbreaking.
Brilliant movie, even if you don't understand it in parts, the effects just make the whole thing worthwhile, the slow mo and bullet time effects have still not been used in a better way 10 years later. Keanu was perfectly cast. Sadly it was all downhill for the series after this, after it seemed to get a bit too clever for itself. Shame. 5 STARS
THE MATRIX RELOADED
Looks Good but Loses It's Way
Was REALLY looking forward to this sequel when it came out at the cinema.
Due to the Awesomeness of the first movie and the hype and promise of an even better sequel with some Stunning Action Sequences.
Somehow this the 2nd instalment in the Matrix Trilogy loses it's way and leads to the downfall of the series as a whole.
Not to say that it does not have plus points, it does, namely the Mind Blowing Action Sequences, especially the 15 Minute Mash Up on the freeway.
But these are just Very Good SEQUENCES in a pretty poor Sci Fi movie.
Unfortunately worse was to come in Matrix Revolutions. 3 STARS
The Matrix Revolutions
Oh Dear. We're not in Kansas anymore are we?
How did one of the most Exciting and Promising movies in recent times, obviously I'm referring to the Original Matrix movie, end up losing it'way and finishing on a damp squib that is Matrix Revolutions. Again we have some good special effects but my interest in the story at this point was NIL.
A complete collapse by the Writers and Directors. The content of Matrix Revolutions and Matrix Reloaded make the first movie seem even better than before and also a bit of a fluke for the Directors. Very Disappointed. 2 STARS

What a great Trilogy. The first Matrix is easily the best & contray to popular opinion I really enjoyed 2 & 3. Some of the actions sequences in 2 esp. has to be seen to be believed. Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne & Carrie Ann Moss are all brilliant as Neo, Morpheus & Trinity. Hugo Weaving steals the show as Agent Smith with his witty one liners. Brilliant!!

In 1999 the world stood back in awe and confusion at the awesome spectical of the film 'The Matrix' being released.

A truely groundbreaking film, creating a revolution in the dark sci-fi genre.

This like many epics shows the echoes of the possible future, were humanity has become a battery pack designed to keep the machines that we once created, alive. We blackened the skies to stop their main source of power (the sun) and so they created a system program in which all humanity would live out their lives generating a constant source of power for the machines. (i cannot explain the idea of this film... just go watch it!!)

This is by far a fantastic trilogy. One of the greatest sci-fi trilogys to ever be made.

Follow the stories of Neo, Morpheus, trininty and of coruse the infamous Agent Smith in this war-epic version of the dark future, were man and machine fight for survival.

Although many claim that 'The Matrix' is brilliant and the others not so, i disagree! Once my brother fully explained the very complex story that the final two bring too us it makes brilliant sense and actually makes it more scray because... well who knows... do we live in the program called the Matrix? (Don't worry, I'm not a nut i don't actually think that...)

No matter what i write i can't explain the story fully so your best bet is to watch them and make up your own mind! I think that they are all good but the frist is by far the most amazing!!! Either way, sit back and enjoy! :)

  The ultimate night in!

| | See all DaveFaz's reviews (182)

The Matrix slams you back in you seat, pops your eyes wide open, and makes your jaw hit the floor. Fast, intelligent and visually spectacular, it's an ultra cool rollercoaster movie, and you won't want to miss a single second. At this price, I can't recommend it highly enough. And what a great night in, to watch all three films back-to-back.

  SUPERCOOL

| | See all Lepetomane's reviews (116)

What can I say about the Matrix films apart from the fact they are mind-blowing (well the first two certainly are). These films are groundbreaking and simply ooze cool (so much so I had to buy the shades that the evil twins wore in Reloaded!) The box set is a great buy as you will require to see all films to have any hope of making sense of the whole thing. If that fails, switch your brain into neutral and just enjoy the awesome set pieces and fight scenes. Worth it for the first two films alone as the third instalment (Revolutions) is pretty disappointing.
