Storyline

A promotional making-of documentary for the film Matrix, The (1999) that devotes its time to explaining the digital and practical effects contained in the film. This is very interesting, seeing as how they're giving away the cinematic secrets that they created solely for the this movie, that have now been spoofed and referenced in countless other films. Written by Rhyl Donnelly

This is a documentary on the regular, one-disc DVD of The Matrix(and one of the only extras in the set). It does, of course, go into that film. It consists of behind the scenes footage, interviews, artwork, storyboards and clips from the movie. Some of it also made it into Revisited. I would say that this is the better of the two. This doesn't waste any time. It's very informative, with plenty of material. The pacing is spot-on, there's a lot here, in little time... less than half an hour, or, more accurately, about 26 minutes. The people talking have things to say, and this doesn't particularly favor anyone over anyone else. The editing is sharp and tight. You don't just get an explanation, and peoples' takes on what the title is about, you also get a couple of anecdotes and you get to see bits of the crew and cast relaxing and having fun on set. Heck, even the brothers, for what appears to be one of the last times, certainly for this series, appear and you get an idea of what they're like. There is a tiny amount of fairly harsh language, and arguably a tad of violence. I recommend this to fans of the franchise, and/or anyone who wants to know what they can about this first piece. 8/10
