THE MATRIX stars Keanu Reeves as Thomas Anderson, known to the computer world as Neo, a young computer hijacker who continues to receive messages on his computer from an unknown person involving a thing called 'The Matrix'. From there Neo is swept away from what we call reality - which turns out to be a computer-generated world created to keep us happy. What we think of as 1999 is actually closer to 2199 - and out of the "perfect world", it shows. The skies are black, the ground a desert, our cities crumbling (hmmm...sound familiar, i.e. THE TERMINATOR?) - and the world run by machines who create humans in fields.
From the flawless special effects, the great cast, the action-packed screenplay, the commendable directing and the perfect choreography by martial arts master director Yuen Wo Ping, THE MATRIX is a non-stop thrill ride that is almost flawless. I should definitely recommend THE MATRIX to anyone looking for a good time.
OVERALL: 4.5 [Masterpiece] out of 5 [Perfect]
