An examination of the movie the matrix

The main character is a computer hacker called Neo. He is put in touch with a resistance group led by a character called Morpheus. Morpheus reveals to Neo that everything he thinks of as reality is in fact a complex computer program — and that in fact, every human is contained in a container and is nothing more than a battery, producing heat and electrical energy for the Artificial Intelligence machines that have taken over the world. Neo is presented with the opportunity to break out of the program, give up his version of reality and become part of the resistance.

Immensely entertaining, intriguingly philosophical and just about one of the best films ever made! MinorityReporter 2 December Writing a review of The Matrix is a very hard thing for me to do because this film means a lot to me and therefore I want to do the film justice by writing a good review.

To tell the truth the first time I saw the film I was enamored by the effects. I remember thinking to myself that this was one of the most visually stunning films I had ever seen in my life.

Also having always been a comic book fan and a fan of films that were larger than life, the transitional element of the story was very appealing to me and this probably heightened my enjoyment of the film very much.

Acting wise the film works excellently. Keanu Reeves plays the main character, Neo, or Thomas A. Anderson and while he is not the perfect actor I think he does a pretty good job in The Matrix and the sequels. Very clear and well defined.

His lines flow with a certain confidence and style that makes his character somewhat unique and interesting. Carrie-Anne Moss does a good job as well and succeeds in looking both cool and sexy in her leather outfit.

Joe Pantoliano, a critically underrated actor does a brilliant job of bringing his character, Cypher, to life. Gloria Foster appears in a relatively small role that will have greater significance in the following films and she does a very good job.

The best acting is provided by Hugo Weaving, however, in his portrayal of Agent Smith. It is really something to watch him act out the changes in his character. Agent Smith gains some human traits like anger, sense of dread, hate and eventually even a sly sense of humor mostly in the sequels.

Two thumbs way up to Weaving who has created one of the finest screen villains of all time.

Effects wise the film is simply stunning and it deservedly was awarded the Oscar for best effects and was regrettably cheated out of a nomination in the Best Film category ahead of even Star Wars.

The reason that I think The Matrix deserves the Oscar for best effects is simply that the effects in The Matrix are more innovative than the ones in Star Wars. The effects also help in the symbolism of the film and in creating a very dystopian atmosphere not unlike the one seen in Blade Runner and this works brilliantly.

The film looks beautiful at all times and today 6 years later my God has it already been 6 years? Add the effects to the brilliant editing and you have a visual masterpiece on your hands. Without spoiling the film I think I can mention a few of the more obvious elements.

The first part of his last name, Anderson comes from the Greek Andros meaning "man" and combine this with the second part of his last name "son" and add a little creativity you will come up with the combination "son of man" which was a title Jesus came up with about himself.

Also the first time we meet Neo a man calls him and I quote: My own personal Jesus Christ. Explaining these elements would make this review go on forever so aside from mentioning them I will not comment on them further. To all the people who doubt the profound nature of The Matrix I can only give one advice: Free your mind and watch the film again.

The Return of the King and I recommend it to all fans of sci-fi and people who like philosophy. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote.By November 10, , one month after The Matrix Reloaded DVD was released, the sales of The Matrix DVD had exceeded 30 million copies.
