Product Description

Studio: Warner Home Video Release Date: 03/31/2009 Run time: 138 minutes Rating: R

By following up their debut thriller Bound with the 1999 box-office smash The Matrix, the codirecting Wachowski brothers--Andy and Larry--annihilated any suggestion of a sophomore jinx, crafting one of the most exhilarating sci-fi/action movies of the 1990s. Set in the not too distant future in an insipid, characterless city, we find a young man named Neo (Keanu Reeves). A software techie by day and a computer hacker by night, he sits alone at home by his monitor, waiting for a sign, a signal--from what or whom he doesn't know--until one night, a mysterious woman named Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) seeks him out and introduces him to that faceless character he has been waiting for: Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne). A messiah of sorts, Morpheus presents Neo with the truth about his world by shedding light on the dark secrets that have troubled him for so long: "You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad." Ultimately, Morpheus illustrates to Neo what the Matrix is--a reality beyond reality that controls all of their lives, in a way that Neo can barely comprehend.

Neo thus embarks on an adventure that is both terrifying and enthralling. Pitted against an enemy that transcends human concepts of evil, Morpheus and his team must train Neo to believe that he is the chosen champion of their fight. With mind-boggling, technically innovative special effects and a thought-provoking script that owes a debt of inspiration to the legacy of cyberpunk fiction, this is much more than an out-and-out action yarn; it's a thinking man's journey into the realm of futuristic fantasy, a dreamscape full of eye candy that will satisfy sci-fi, kung fu, action, and adventure fans alike. Although the film is headlined by Reeves and Fishburne--who both turn in fine performances--much of the fun and excitement should be attributed to Moss, who flawlessly mixes vulnerability with immense strength, making other contemporary female heroines look timid by comparison. And if we were going to cast a vote for most dastardly movie villain of 1999, it would have to go to Hugo Weaving, who plays the feckless, semipsychotic Agent Smith with panache and edginess. As the film's box-office profits soared, the Wachowski brothers announced that The Matrix is merely the first chapter in a cinematically dazzling franchise--a chapter that is arguably superior to the other sci-fi smash of 1999 (you know... the one starring Jar Jar Binks). --Jeremy Storey

  • Great Movie- A must see
    Well the movie describes very well how the thing are working in our world. If you are not awaken, you are not able to see the way the matrix works. You are in a dream. It is the time to wake up and the movie can just give you the little hint you need to see the world as it is....more info
  • TOP movie on many levels!
    This is still my favourite movie and one that I have seen more than 10 times, as I went out and got the VHS edition back then before DVD's were in. It is a movie that can be seen on many levels. Some will see it just as a great action movie which it is, but there is so much more to this film. It is a fantastic depiction of the journey of the spiritual seeker and the difficulties that he encounters within himself as he starts pushing against the prisons of his own mind and the multitude of programs that operates and which keep us small.

    It also neatly depicts the way humans are kept as 'food for the moon' in Gurdjieff's words or simply food for ultra terrestrials. In the film this is depicted as humans, being little less than cultivated biological batteries for the machines.

    The story is part of a trilogy and all three parts are worth watching more than once, as you will undoubtedly see new things each time. Things that start making sense only after some time of reflection and reading. In this regard I can recommend reading the book by Ouspensky called "In Search of the Miraculous", and the book by Laura Knight-Jadczyk called "The Secret History of the World".

  • The ORACLE was in the Matrix!
    as soon as I saw him eat that cookie I figured out how many script errors were made and since I can't read all 3000 reviews just had to add my 2c...why would u bother with a matrix concept if u just wanted to milk babes for AC/DC??? They grow up? Kill em... and that screen depicting the vertical scans of random numbers, and only one quick shot to show how it is really interpreted, as a GD camera!!! and what is with the high tech gear that is available in sposedly '99 (i.e. learn to fly, UFC, etc.) and they use KEYBOARDS!!!! not even ONE voice command??? and that phone booth interface was soooo ingenious, beam me up Scooby Doo...YIKES!!! really luved the scene going thru security post 9/11 with all that commando gear, major yuk of the film...and why on God's good earth would they have one source for the codes to Zion, no super s/w dewey decimal system to encrypt the lat/long??? ack, have lots more but hated to discuss this film with my roomtemp IQ friends, they claim they all "got" it, but don't ask them any of these questions, they change the subject...SCREAM!!!!@@#%%@%! Positives were the high wire acts, the cute outfits in black, the traitor enjoying his fake moo meat, the music, and of course, that babe in RED!!!...more info

  • Great Blu-Ray, Great Movie!
    I won't go into detail in regards to the movie plot, as we all know just what the Matrix is all about. I will say this, though, The Matrix is an instant classic, which will be looked upon for many years to come. It brought not only a sense of "cool" and "style" to the action genre, but it bended the very though of cinema with "bullet time." Great movie.
    Now, unto the Blu-Ray.
    The video is wonderful. Though you will mainly be seeing many shades of green and earthy colors on your display, the BD still strikes as demo-worthy. Color representation is great, with those greens looking very vivid, the blacks are just wonderful, very bold and inky. Detail is also top-notch, making sure you get ingest every single pixel in the Matrix. Great transfer, WB.
    The audio is another great TrueHD track by WB. Bass is wonderfully strong, dynamics are strong throughout, and the clarity of the dialogue is on target. Pans are seamless, and even though the mix is 10 years old, it will still impress. Jump to the chapter where Morpheus is being held by the agents, and you will hear some great HD sound.
    Overall, a package that is worth the money, specially if one disliked the other two dissapointing sequels. Take the red pill, and see the Matrix in HD.
    5 out of 5....more info
  • The movie was still great but...
    Blu-Ray was supposed to mean more... More extras, more clarity. I keep finding, not only with rereleases of older movies, but also with new movies, that a lot of the special features not only fail to fill the screen, but they look like crap. Seriously, if you're going to put the time in to bring a movie to Blu-Ray, you need to get your act together and make the entire disk BLU-RAY!

  • Overrated
    The Matrix is a run of the mill summer movie that for some strange reason gained a cult following. I swear, I really didn't hate The Matrix at the beginning. It was a summer movie, entertaining for the duration of the show, forgettable afterwards.

    Keanu Reeves is well suited to play stiff, blank-faced humanoid type characters in science fiction movies... well, because he can just be himself, and all that effort of acting is not getting in his way. So he wasn't the problem. I have enjoyed watching Hugo Weaving in The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and Proof, so that was a definate plus. The special effects were a bit too self-satified and flashy, but who cares, give the masses eye-candy.

    No, what put me off was the mass hysteria that followed. Have you ever seen pictures of screaming teenage girls at a Beatles concert? It was like that, but with grown men. There was a guy, whom I previously considered reasonable, explaining to me how this movie just blew his mind, how incredibly original and philosophically deep it was. I was looking at him wondering what on earth he was talking about. The philosophy of this movie has the depth of a kiddie pool. Everything in it is covered in your average Philosophy 101 class - you know, the one that the graduate students teach, because the professor has better things to do. The plot, once you brush off the SFX glitter is nothing Hollywood haven't regurgitated million times before. As matter of fact, it is the standard Reluctant Hero plot: shy young boy/man is told that he is special, The One. He at first rejects the idea, but of course eventually gives in and ends up saving the day/world/Princess Leia/etc.

    The endless gushings about The Matrix finally made me just really hate the movie, and boycotting all the follow-ups. I'm still stupefied by all the hubbub. ...more info
  • The Greatest Science Fiction Movie EVER
    "Wake Up, Neo".

    With those three seemingly simple words, the entire concept of the Matrix is born. Part science fiction, part philosophical musing, part action-adventure, "The Matrix" is, pure and simple, the most well-crafted science fiction film of all-time.

    The film, set in a human future where machines control the human race and use humans much like we currently use batteries, centers on the fate of one man, Neo (Keanu Reeves), who is awakened to this terrible existence. Much like the viewers of the film, Neo must figure out what is real and what is not, who to believe and who to fight.

    The real gem hidden within this film, however, is its commentary on the CURRENT human condition, or specifically how we continue to design smarter and smarter machines that may one day be our downfall. Plus, the absolutely unbelievable/horrible future that awaits us is so unforgiving that viewers can't help but cheer for the protagonists, even if we will go back to our AI the next day at work.

    The acting in this movie has been much-maligned, but the characters (while truly not very emotive) are almost MEANT to have a sort of philosophical tone to them. Neo is the confused savior, Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) is the unflappable leader, and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) is the experienced sidekick. Also, the villainous "Agent Smith" (Hugo Weaving) will make you want to see him absolutely annihilated (the sign of a truly good villain!).

    Of course, the special effects in this film are absolutely stunning, what with the use of "Bullet Time" (where the lightning action is slowed down to miniscule movements without losing any clarity).

    Overall, this is a masterpiece science fiction film, combining an extraordinarily engaging plot, very able-bodied protagonists and antagonists, as well as special effects that, at the time of the film's release, were cutting edge. So, if you are looking for a film that will have you deep in contemplation days after viewing, but will also make you say "Whoa" (to quote Neo) while viewing, this film is for you....more info
  • AND IF THE PROPHECY CAME TRUE? WHAT THEN?
    It's 1999. The worls is about to experience an event that will in many ways, determine the parameters of popular art within the realm of the most popular and influential of the popular arts, the world of Commercial Film. With THE MATRIX the Wachowski brothers create and present a perfect example of what the Sci-Fi Adventure film of the hypothetical future would be in the actual future. THE MATRIX, though perfectly self-contained, and received with enthusiasm by the public, would demand a sequel. The Wachowskis would quickly provide two of them, and these subsequent films would amaze audiences by not only fulfilling the plot and motivatIon factors of the original story, but by becoming in unforseen ways, movies deeper, more profound and intellectually demanding; in other words, superior to the template from which they sprang.

    It all begins with the pulsing of a cursor light on an unattended computer monitor screen.

    Question: What if you woke one day to find and to follow a sequence of remarkale evnts that led to the realizaion that the world around you, including all your most intimate associations, those given to you by your senses, was merely an illusion, a construct desined to control you, subliminally, for the beneift of un-alive, half-beings fundamenally unlike yourelf? What would you do? What could you do? What if all this were "a world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth." What then?

    (1) Would you quit your Programmer job?

    (2) Would you Join a band of cyber-space rebels? What if you were invited into it by someone irresistably attractive?

    (3) What if the doping, pleasure-driven Web rebels knew you only by your Net pseudonym, and accepted you totally for what you only partly believed yourself to be? Could you accept them?

    (4) What if the leader of the Web rebels believed in you and your destiny, devoutly, and showed you that he'd been for most of his life dedicated to your appearance, and what if he were able to show you both your orignis and your destiny? Would you believe and follow him?

    (5) And what if this man, this dangerous outlaw, believed you were the savior of "the world" or, of Humanity?

    (6) And what if he were able to show you in a convincing way, what reality was, and how you were trapped in the lie of it?

    (7) And what if he were to introduce you to a clairvoyant who, though socially inappropriate, read the future? Would you accept her message?

    (8) Would you, as one of the fugitive band of time-travellers beyond the Matrix, join in a battle with the mechanized forces of the Matrix itself? Would you confront it's terrifying and powerful agents? At he risk of your life?

    (9) Braving discomfort, bad food, and sensual deprivation, would you risk your identity and your ideal self to battle against the authoritarian agents of the Matrix?

    (10) And would you risk everything for someone who believed in you absoluely, and loved you beyond anything you'd peviously imagined?

    (11) And betrayal? It is inevitable. Will you be able to face it and survive?

    Phrophecy is funny: People only talk about it, when they talk about it, to show they don't believe in it. Mark of a decadent age. A lack of moral imagination is the hallmark of decay. Weep, my friends. But, a voice speaks through the modem. It says, "I know you are out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afrid of us; afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this will end. I came here to tell you how this is going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone and I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm gong to show them a world without rules or conrols; without boundaries; a world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is up to you."'

    The Wachowski brothers who produced this film are said to hail from Chicago. In that city adults tell children that the (arctic) climate builds character. Perhaps it may. Adversity has strange offspring. Who knows what may, or may not have come out of that brutally cold, utterly corrupt but quintessentially American city?...more info
  • Action movie disguised as science-fiction delivers the goods
    Beginning this review I was writing the film's title and ended up with "The Mainstream" (100% accident) which pretty much sums up the premise of The Matrix franchise. The Matrix is good in the fact that it takes complex science-fiction from previous 1990s films that didn't quite meet mainstream audiences (Dark City, 12 Monkeys) and merges it with the spectacular CGI effects of an action film. As an action film The Matrix is incredibly successful and deserves great recognition as one of the best films of the 1990s, or the past two decades for that matter. However I do feel let down by the fact that I felt cheated by the story when they didn't try to further flesh out the world it took place in.

    My main problem with the film falls on the fact that, as an avid sci-fi fan, I had already seen most of the concepts The Matrix presented in previous films (go back to the two I listed above). The religious spin on things however does really make it interesting, kind of like a science-fiction version of some religious document, but a human being having special abilities and saving a captive human population from a controlling force which had everyone living in a false reality had already been used in Dark City back in 1996. This, among other things, is one of the reasons I don't give The Matrix a perfect score of 10/10.

    As a sci-fi film it was very good, regardless of how many of the elements that it was reusing from other films, but I often felt like the production team couldn't decide on whether or not they wanted an action picture, or a thought stimulating sci-fi epic. By the end however The Matrix does succeed in balancing these two things very nicely. The CGI deserved its Academy Award, because it really is amazing some of the things they were able to pull off.

    The acting in this film was grade-A, and one of the strongest aspects of the film's production, and there was only ONE performance that failed to catch my attention...sadly this performance (my opinion) came from the star of the film: Keanu Reeves. Reeves has had his moments throughout his career, don't get me wrong, back in the late 1980s (most will remember the Bill & Ted films) he was a rather likable young actor, even in his lesser known performances; he seemed very honest and sincere in his performances. A change came about when he announced he was going to "take acting more seriously". The result, in my mind, was horrific! He comes across now as someone with very little emotion, and just doesn't seem really human.

    I had the same problem with Keanu in the action movie, Speed, which followed the Die Hard franchise, but unlike Bruce Willis, I couldn't connect, or really care about Reeves in this film (similar feeling in Bram Stoker's Dracula, but he wasn't TOO bad in that film), which was certainly on par with the Die Hard films in production and story. Same problem is present in The Matrix. Reeves is trying way too hard to seem serious, and dramatic, and in the end comes across as being artificial, and dull. If that was the director's intention, I don't really care, because I felt this was a character the audience should have been able to relate to and care about, but that's just my opinion and you don't have to agree with me (just giving an honest view from my perspective).

    Okay, I've given my criticisms, but now I have to say what was really good about The Matrix, and there are a lot of good aspects of this film which is why it deserves my high rating (and a spot in my DVD collection). The action is well-done, and truly is an eye opener, and as I previously stated the performances are mostly strong. Laurence Fishburne (Morpheus) and Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith) are very good in their respective roles, and both (as most people will say) are embraced as engaging characters in the mind of the audience, while Reeves was more of a vehicle to channel elaborate action sequences (the highlight, in most people's opinion, of the film). Also the Wachowski Brother's film is simply beautiful to look at, from the all CGI sequences to the live sets. The sequels, which go purely into action, prove that this film could have been a much worse (I don't hate the sequels, they just are not really sci-fi; just action films).

    This film really does have all it needs to work as a successful film, especially in the mainstream Hollywood of this day and age. It would have been braver for the filmmakers to try and expand, and concentrate on the complex science-fiction aspects, instead of the action, but then it wouldn't have been the box-office success it was. I would defend them no matter what, but when you go against the powers if mainstream and the production companies and end up with a good film you'll always have me backing up your film...of course I will be critical if the plot and direction is bad, but at least I'll give you a positive word for daring to be different.

    I can only hope that The Matrix can help get moviegoers into the lesser known art-house science-fiction stories that inspired it, because it's a shame that our modern audiences can't seem to appreciate things that don't fuse with action or comedy, because I don't feel science-fiction was ever really intended to be a genre simply designed to create exciting action sequences.

    The Matrix was a great film, deserving its mainstream applause: Solid 9/10 stars

    Cool book cover case. The picture quality is not the greatest of blu's, but it's not to bad either. I would give picture quality a 3/5 and sound 4/5...more info
  • Matrix 10th anniversary Blu-Ray
    Obviously, this is a great movie for special effects. The biggest upset was seeing a noticeable difference between the basic DVD and the Blu-Ray version.

  • I am outraged...1999 disc in 2008 box-when a 2003 remaster exists!
    I just purchased the newly-in-a- keepcase (not a snapper)edition which has ?2008 on the back cover fine print (Amazon says 2007)
    I had held out because I had heard rave reviews of the remaster for the box set back in 2003-which you could only buy in the set at the time . I already had the 1999 disc-so I could wait
    So, 5 years later a new package, with new package design work, current year copyright,-and WHV sitting on a nice RM for a few years I thought "Aha! Now is the time to get it it!"=thinking that after all the years they would ditch the 1999 transfer.
    I watched the movie and thought, hmmmmmmmm nothing here that outstanding-almost looks like the old disc.
    So I put my disc into my iMac, opened it on the desktop-nothing!
    I use this trick to determine when a discs is remastered.
    They can press the disc for 5 years but the transfer date is the constant on file creation.

    WTF? I open to a blank page! no TS_AUDIO, no TS_VIDEO no .VOB files nothing-these would show dates of creation on them, so one can tell the last time a disc was remastered.
    My long used trick didnt work.
    Then I get the idea to do a 'right click' to 'get info' from the menu

    Lets party like it was 1999! August 2-to be exact. Seems like they were hiding something?
    an 8 year old transfer in a 2008 box......"File creation date-Aug 2, 1999" hmmmmmm is it just me?
    I also notice on the inner ring, a different catalog number-and MADE IN CANADA printed on the plastic)
    Curiously, nowhere on the label is a visible date or place of manufacture-which I thought to be law.
    And the box has the ?2008 date only

    Misspackaging? They should destroy back stock, or stop printinng them-not reship it at this late date as if 'new'
    I dont think the marketseller will refund me-"Whaaaa! I got the 1999 pressing I want my money back"-he couldnt know

    This has me pi**ed because they have been sitting on a remaster for several years-and it should have been made available as a single disc by now- I didnt want the whole box-back then, or now
    After all, it would not be two far out of reason to expect it with new box/design change, that they would use the new transfer,no?
    With an economic meltdown happening right before our eyes-$175 Trillion in bailouts (total so far), consumer spending dropping like a stone,- and the deficits-we sit in a trance and allow this

    I would not offend the still very large S-DVD market which is still 90% of your revenue-BR can never quite keep a continual average of 10% in monthly sales (source: videoscan/endgadget-industry gerbils- for past 6 months ZD Net-a popular widely read IT i-zine' -say 5% 0f the market)-and now you can bet that will drop with the economy.
    a 10% sales drop in DVD sales could be absorbed-a 10% in BR would finish it off
    Sales of players are slow now and will be dead in Jan-you can see the writing on the wall-"BUY ANY 1 BR title AND GET 3 FREE!! Not exactly confidence building- which i s why Ive held off- and who knows how long I will have my job?
    And YOU?
    So Warner-dont pull tricks like you did to 'force' us from LD to DVD-namely-by either giving the BR the special features ONLY, and for SDVD, sloppy pressing and packaging-or not even manufacturing the disc at all.
    BOTH SONY and WHV were guilty of this when DVD started. Some will chime in "Nobodies forcing you to go to BR..." Well, if I like watching moves or getting SEs-and they no longer press them on DVD-I AM forced-into BR-not a very good marketing idea when we may soon see 25% unemployment*-and people will only buy NECESSITIES (nobody in finance the fairy tale calculation models that BLS use seriuosly-which curiuosly make things look 'rosier' than they really are-they ONLY count you as UE if you are COLLECTING UC..the rest of you can get lost for all they care) They say 6.5%! ha!...more info
  • "No Fear, No Doubt, No Disbelief."
    When 'THE MATRIX' first came out, I resisted the hype that began to surround it once all of the reviews--by laymen and professionals alike--started coming in.
    About a year after it's cinematic release, when it was available on pay-per-view, on a night when I was bored stiff, with absolutely nothing else to do, I invested $4.99 just to see what all the hoopla was all about.
    Excuse my French... but, God Damnit! Induct the Wachowski brothers into the movie making hall of fame right now!
    If they never make another film, (which they obviously have, considering that there's now a 'Matrix' trilogy. UGH!)this one fantastic movie, in and of it's own accord, justifies their having a place of prominence in the pantheon of the all time great producers / directors in movie making history.
    Being an intelligent, thoughtful, highly analytical and conscious individual, the mental stimulation which I derived from this finely nuanced film was enough to make me giddy.
    With a superb cast; great acting; a mind-boggling plot; and dialogue that you can sink your teeth into; THE MATRIX gives the viewer a whole lot of everything.
    But, for me, the one thing that it gave me more than anything else, was a sense of empowerment.
    The sense that if we can conceive it and BELIEVE it, that we can also achieve it; and in essence, this film is really just one long testament to my favorite philosophical axiom; one which states that, "The person who thinks that they can, and the person who thinks that they can't, are both right." and for every single character in this movie, it was all about that one simple thing: 'belief'.
    Morpheus, the leader of the group, who was played to perfection by Lawrence Fishburn, BELIEVED so strongly that he would find the one, that he had devoted his entire life to searching for him.
    Trinity, played by Carrie Ann Moss, believed so strongly in Morpheus, that she risked her life time and time again, delving into the matrix as a liaison between Morpheus and 'the one'.
    Cypher, played by Hugo Weaving, believed that their search was so much B.S. that he sold out to the agents, attempting to sabotage the groups efforts, for his own personal welfare.
    NEO, played by keanu Reeves, believed that he was 'just another guy' until the collective belief of everyone around him, particularly Morpheus and Trinity, convinced him that he really was 'the one.'
    This movie is so tightly constructed that even the names of these individuals tell a story that is relative to it's character.
    Morpheus is the name of 'the principal God of dreams' in Greek mythology, and in The Matrix, Morpheus attempts to wake everyone from their dream state.
    Trinity represents the power of alliance, particularly the alliance of three, as in the sun the moon and the stars, the father the son and the holy ghost, life death and rebirth, past present and future, etc... and she serves as the link between Morpheus' ideology, and it's real life application in the embodiment of Neo.
    Neo, literally means 'NEW', and is also an anagram for ONE, and he would be the first person to see The Matrix as it really was, and he would also be the the first ONE to take a step into the heart of THE MATRIX and live to tell.
    Even the name of their vessel, the Nebuchadnezzar, was symbolic, in the regards that Nebuchadnezzar was the name of the Babylon king who rebelled against Darius the great of Persia, who was the most powerful ruler of his 5th century B.C times.
    This s**t is the macrocosm in microcosm, finely nuanced in every detail; and, in fact, if you really want to experience this movie from another perspective, DON"T WATCH IT... LISTEN TO IT.

    "SOUND BYTES"
    NEO: "So what are you telling me... that I can dodge bullets?"
    MORPHEUS: "No! When you're ready... you won't have to."
    When Neo is preparing to jump From one skyscraper to another, and has doubts about his ability to do so, Morpheus tells him, "Don't think you can... know you can."
    When Neo tries to convince himself that he can make that jump, he declares, "NO FEAR, NO DOUBT, NO DISBELIEF."
    And for anyone who is wondering if they should watch/buy this DVD; and whether or not it's worth their time and money?
    Take it from me, (someone who isn't prone to gushing effusively about anything; though you wouldn't know that based on this review) you should have "NO FEAR... NO DOUBT... NO DISBELIEF."
