THE MATRIX: With THE MATRIX, the Wachowskis have established themselves as innovative filmmakers who push the boundaries of live-action films. Like the groundbreaking STAR WARS, THE MATRIX (also the first film of a trilogy) showcases a unique visual style, one the Wachowskis achieved through an array of techniques and digital effects, some never before seen in mainstream Hollywood films. Although computer morphing technology had been used before in films such as THE ABYSS and TERMINATOR 2, the Wachowskis were the first to use "bullet time," a time-bending digital effect that utilizes both computer-generated imagery and still photography.
The film itself is a complex story that aspires to mythology, focusing on a computer hacker named Neo (Keanu Reeves) who searches for the truth behind the mysterious force known as the Matrix. He finds his answer with a group of strangers led by the charismatic Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne). What they encounter in confronting that truth makes for a lightning-paced, eye-popping thrill ride of a movie. Packed with stunning fight scenes (choreographed by accomplished Hong Kong director Yuen Wo-Ping), astonishing visual effects, quotable lines, and a terrific supporting cast (led by Carrie-Anne Moss, in her first major Hollywood film), THE MATRIX is a bold triumph that raises the bar for all science fiction films.
THE MATRIX REVISITED: This video document of the making of THE MATRIX will blow away any fan who found the original film intense. THE MATRIX became an instant landmark in the world of science fiction cinema. The special effects have become imitated many times over and the fight choreography has inspired numerous action films. This look behind the scenes gives and in-depth look at how the incredible visual style of the film was achieved. Keanu Reeves dangles from strings while his animated doppleganger dodges bullets. Not only is this a stunning look at the creation of a beloved film, but it also pumps up sci-fi fans for the upcoming sequels and anime version with teasing clips and interviews.
