About the Movie

Breaking box office records as the biggest Easter opening ever, this special effects-driven tale follows Keanu Reeves ("Speed," "Devil's Advocate") and Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy-nominee Laurence Fishburne ("What's Love Got to Do with It?") on an explosive futuristic sci-fi adventure about a man who comes to believe that his everyday world is the product of a complex computer-driven digital matrix that feeds on humans. In his dangerous quest to find out the truth, he must figure out who is real and who he can trust. From the producer of the top boxoffice franchise, "Lethal Weapon."

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A must-see among genre fans, especially guys in their teens and 20s, for whom the script's pretentious mumbo-jumbo of undergraduate mythology, religious mysticism and technobabble could even be a plus rather than a dramatic liability. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: 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. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Oct 21, 2013

Fresh: A technologically stunning movie that furthers the genre and features crowd-pleasing performances to go with the frequent scenes of gunplay and violence. – David Hunter, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 3, 2015

Fresh: With an arsenal of cool f/x at their disposal, they've come up with a dizzyingly enjoyable junk movie that has just enough on its mind to keep the pleasure from being a guilty one. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Mar 2, 2018

Ok, I don't get why this movie is rated R, did they have pg-13 back then? And I wish you could buy it! Great movie, action, and stuff like that.

Great Action Flick...

The Matrix was a revolutionary film, special effects wise. The acting is great. The suspense is extreme. The action is impressive. Just an all around great film. Buy/rent.
