A great ride in an exciting world. Unrealistic compared to our own world, but if you want realism - look out your window. In it's imagined world it's realistic. It builds up nicely, a lot of action and some short stops to get your breath - but not so long that you get bored. Plot develops naturally, most people will guess what is coming, but I see no one blaming Matrix for having an easy plot. The action scenes are exciting. The different characters have their methods of killing without getting comical. It's practical, yet with entertainment in mind, in it's approach. Gory enough to remind us that this is not something that would be fun to do, but not too much to drive us away. A very well balanced action movie that deserves a lot of respect. I will watch it again pretty soon.
