The Greatest Matrix Fan Short Film Ever!
7 August 2004 | by X3nX3r0See all my reviews

I have been a Matrix fan for a long time. I have also been a Forum Admin on one of the Internet's biggest Matrix fan websites and I have actively participated in many online forums and discussions regarding the Matrix. I just needed to say something about this short film and correct some of the comments made earlier about this.

Firstly, this short film was not made in Australia! It was made in Auckland (my home town) New Zealand by many talented NZ'ers - movie makers, Martial Artists/Actors/Actresses and IT people (some of whom I am friends with and have worked with).

It is a great opportunity to see the wealth of talent we have in this little country of ours and more than anything else, it is a tribute to one of the greatest Hacker/Cyber Punk movies ever made: The Matrix.

I hope this helps to clear things up a bit. I wouldn't want to spoil anyone's experience of it, so I wont comment on the material, just believe me when I say that IT ROCKS and if you're any kind of Matrix fan - YOU should own this and watch it!! Its the best you will ever find out there...

Peace Out from Auck, NZ.
