Truly a masterpiece in every way! If it wasn’t for Fight Club this would my favorite I’ve been on the fence about it, The Matrix along with They Live has the best metaphors about life/society most of which a lot of the population aren’t woke to!
For example the entire speech Morpheus says “The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. That you are a slave, Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.” Among other brilliant quotes like when he talks about what the world has become then mentions we have become this referring to a battery so many genius lines I could list that I won’t.
The effects, stunts, lighting, sounds, & tone is outstandingly spot on! They really did train for the fight sequences for months I’ve seen all the special features plus more. Yes this is a sci-fi film I see it as a documentary as well we’re all slaves that take the blue pill throughout many things it’s just hard to realize that; also love what someone else said it’s a benchmark for sci-fi to come that was very true and it’s the last of its kind movies aren’t made like this anymore!
A lot of people worked hard to make this film what it is I respect that I’ve always wanted to work on film just haven’t had a way for many reasons if you’ve read this far or even at all thanks & sorry I usually don’t have a review this long just thought it was worth it for this one check out my others if you’re interested for now 10 out of 10 phenomenal movie in many ways!
