Plot Summary

"The Most Eye-Popping and Imaginative Movie of the Year." - Gannett. 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." "...one of the most visually dazzling and surrealistically plotted sci-fi films ever made." - Mr. Showbiz

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: The movie is nonsense, but it does achieve a brazenly chic high style -- black-on-black, airborne, spasmodic. – David Denby, New Yorker, Oct 21, 2013

Fresh: The Wachowskis and cinematographer Bill Pope take advantage of currently available technical trickery to create visually distinct levels of reality while setting high-speed cameras in motion to make the action sequences particularly dynamic and fluid. – Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune, Oct 21, 2013

"Woah..."

The first and best of the three Matrix films. The special effects are awesome and the action sequences are always enjoyable. It's a pity it's only available for RENT! I swear, iTunes needs to not make movies like this available for rent only.
