Thomas A. Anderson is a man living two lives. By day he is an average computer programmer and by night a hacker known as Neo. Neo has always questioned his reality, but the truth is far beyond his imagination. Neo finds himself targeted by the police when he is contacted by Morpheus, a legendary computer hacker branded a terrorist by the government. Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity have been captured by a race of machines that live off of the humans' body heat and electrochemical energy and who imprison their minds within an artificial reality known as the Matrix. As a rebel against the machines, Neo must return to the Matrix and confront the agents: super-powerful computer programs devoted to snuffing out Neo and the entire human rebellion.Written by
When Neo is fighting Morpheus for the first time (Kung Fu) there is a moment when Morpheus grabs Neo's kick and them flips/spins him to the ground.
Neo does a side kick in to the chest of Morpheus, who catches it, right hand on top, left hand underneath Neo's ankle.
The spin is correct and Morpheus's hands spin Neo and end up with his elbows crossed from the motion of twisting Neo's ankle.
However in the final cut of the scene, instead of having his elbows crossed then going to the finishing stance, Morpheus is already in the finishing stance and Laurence Fishburne has to correct the movement.
He then lowers his arms so his elbows are crossed, then repeats the finishing movement with his left hand above his head and the right hand down by his right hip. See more »
Is everything in place?
You weren't supposed to relieve me.
I know, but I felt like taking a shift.
You like him, don't you? You like watching him.
Don't be ridiculous.
We're gonna kill him. You understand that?
Morpheus believes he is the one.

A great epic that sets the stage for the next level in sci-fi...
Who is to say what is real or not? We are defined by our view of reality, no matter how twisted or demented it is in comparison to 'normal' people. *evil eye* Yes, I see you all, looking in the mirror, trying to decipher whether or not your view is the reality we all share.
The Matrix not only supplies the world with a whole new level of special effects mixed with style and substance, it also brings a whole new meaning to the word 'paranoria'. This is one of those great epics that becomes a milestone in our present day world, a mark for which just about everybody can appreciate. Not since the original Starwars trilogy has a science fiction film reached across almost the entire population and gripped it with awesome special effects, great sound, and a overall feel of ground breaking movie making magic. It also serves up a good dose of paranoid delusions we all need in our lives every now and then.
With that, I leave you with the fact that I've seen more different types of people liking this one film than most other films to date. Move over George Lucas, you may have just met your match... :)
