The Matrix is a very thought-provoking and mindblowing. I always prefer the original over the sequels, mostly because of originality and greatness, and that is exactly what The Matrix delivers. The plot concerns an office worker named Anderson who is told by rebels that he is the savior of their world. The world that Thomas Anderson lives in is the perfect world, but it ends up that the real world outside of the matrix is a place made up of emptiness, with only one city left of mankind. Anderson/Neo's job is to delete viruses in the matrix that are a problem for the real world surviving.
The story is very complicating and hard to understand, but it will eventually catch up to you. The Wachowski Brothers give a great direction, while the acting is good at best. Reeves, Fishburne, Moss, Weaving, and Pantoliano are all good in their performances, but nothing special. The action scenes are excellent, some of the best I've ever witnessed in a movie. Overall, a great film with a very interesting and entertaining storyline and thrilling action scenes.
