Strange, but entertaining
25 October 2003 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

This is the seventh part of 'The Animatrix', a collection of animated short movies that tell us a little more about the world of 'The Matrix'. In this one a group of people catch a machine and want to let him fight on the side of men. They want the machine to do that out of free will with a specially designed program.

The animation is colorful and very alive and that also makes it a little strange. Still very nice.
