Chicago Sun Times (Roger Ebert)

press

A visually dazzling cyberadventure, full of kinetic excitement, but it retreats to formula just when it's getting interesting.

Empire (UK)

press

The deliciously inventive Wachowskis have delivered the syntax for a new kind of movie: technically mind-blowing, style merged perfectly with content and just so damn cool.

Los Angeles Times

press

A wildly cinematic futuristic thriller that is determined to overpower the imagination, The Matrix combines traditional science-fiction premises with spanking new visual technology in a way that almost defies description.

New York Times

press

The martial arts stunts that are its single strongest selling point.

Total Film (UK)

press

"Wake up, Neo." It brought Keanu Reeves a-woah-ing back to our collective consciousness; it knocked us flat with balletic battle scenes and mind-scrambling plot

Variety (USA)

press

An eye-popping but incoherent extravaganza of morphing and superhuman martial arts.

Crank up your Surround sound in the lobby scene

This is a movie based around machines using mankind as batteries if you havent sen this by now then clearly youve been hiding under a rock or were to young at the time.Neo is your typical office worker/computer hacker living a mundane experenice until one day he is contacted and given a choice to truly open his eyes and see the real world or live his mundane life what he finds is truly disturbing. Is he the one to save mankind or is there really no hope for humanity the best of all three a revoultionary movie and the Lobby scene is awesome with surround sound and bullets flying everywhere.
