Part of 1999

Have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real? What if you couldn’t awaken? How would you know the difference between dream and reality? When the beautiful stranger Trinity (Carrie Ann Moss) leads computer hacker Neo (Keanu Reeves) to a forbidding underworld, he discovers the shocking truth — the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber-intelligence. Neo joins legendary and dangerous rebel warrior Morpheus (Lawrence Fishburne) in the battle to destroy the illusion enslaving humanity.

“Kick ass action, with just enough intelligence in the script to allow you to feel that you weren’t a lowbrow for liking it…. Stunningly of its time with its racially and gender integrated cast and ultimately optimistic message about the future of humans.” —Heidi MacDonald, Comics Beat

“Distinctly modern and heralding the future in both story and envelope-pushing VFX…. THE MATRIX stands apart as the defining sci-fi action movie of the 1990s and the opening salvo of a new wave of digital cinema that challenged the average filmgoer’s mind.” —Dan Owen, Frame Rated

“Arguably a prescient film…. A warning about the perils of over-reliance on technology and a film in thrall to the possibilities of technology for excitement, spectacle and adventure.” —Cinema Essentials
