When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham. The Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.
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
The Wachowskis harbored their vision for five and a half years, working through fourteen drafts of the screenplay. Although most studio executives who read the script loved their ideas, they had extreme difficulty imagining how this would translate onto the screen. The Wachowskis then hired leading illustrators Steve Skroce and Geofrey Darrow who created over six hundred storyboards. Executives were reportedly sold immediately after seeing the bold vision on display, and green-lit the film. See more »
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.

In the French version, when Neo dies, Trinity says that she loves him and that she is going to bring him back. In the original version she says that she is not afraid anymore because she loves him. See more »
It's been a while since a movie has generated enough interest in me for me to watch it. "The Matrix" looked exciting enough in the trailers, so I decided to give it a look. What I found was an amazing movie, with some of the greatest special effects I've ever seen. The camera angles really work for the action sequences and the choreographed fight scenes made me yearn for more. Say what you want about Keanu Reeves' acting. He may not deliver the best dialogue, but his look can carry a film. He was a great choice for the role of Neo. Carrie Anne Moss was great as was the underrated Laurence Fishburne. I highly recommend this film for those who are a fan of visually stunning movies. It will blow away your senses...
