It is amazing to think that twenty years ago, the original Matrix
came out and took the world by storm. While the movie ended with and definitive victory for Neo and his cyber punk pals, the stage was also set for more films, should the public demand be there. As the Wachowskis planned the two sequels, Reloaded and Revolutions, they also teamed up with several of the anime world’s finest to create The Animatrix.
The anthology movie came out around the same time as The Matrix Reloaded
was released. In fact, one of the film’s stories, Final Flight Of The Osiris was released in theaters. Some fans might bemoan Reloaded, Revolutions, or both. But The Animatrix is where the really cool sequel lies.
