Product Description

The complete Matrix story, including all three films, seven documentaries looking into the making of the trilogy and nine animated shorts based on the world of the Matrix. The hugely successful blockbuster 'The Matrix' (1999) stars Keanu Reeves as Neo, a young computer hacker who comes to believe that the world around him is not as it appears to be. With the aid of mysterious subversive Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), Neo discovers that his whole existence as he knows it is a lie. Together with Morpheus' acolyte Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), Neo begins to fight back against the computerised hierarchy which is secretly manipulating the human race. 'The Matrix Revisited' (2001) is a documentary about the making of 'The Matrix', featuring a look at the film's technical accomplishments, behind-the-scene footage of the stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Ann Moss and Laurence Fishburne, extracts from 'The Matrix Anime' and unseen material from the original movie. 'The Matrix Reloaded' (2003) is the first of two sequels to the 2001 blockbuster. Keanu Reeves returns as Neo, who is once again joined by Trinity and Morpheus to continue their fight against the Machine Army - wearing their by now familiar long black overcoats and dark glasses. Zion, the last human city on Earth becomes the battleground as Neo discovers new super-human abilities, although things become complicated when he and Trinity embark on a serious romance. 'The Matrix Reloaded Revisited' (2003) looks at the making of the first sequel, and includes extra scenes shot for the 'Enter the Matrix' game. 'The Matrix Revolutions' (2003) is the final chapter of the film trilogy. Neo is still on the quest for truth, but his journey into the real world has left him drained of his power and trapped on a subway station caught between the Matrix and the Machine World. Meanwhile, Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) is now totally out of control. With the oncoming threat imminent, the rebels manage to bargain Neo's freedom and begin their final quest for freedom in explosive battles within both worlds. 'The Matrix Revolutions Revisited' (2003) chronicles the making of this final segment in the trilogy. 'The Animatrix' (2003) fuses CG animation with Japanese anime in nine short films based on the world of the Matrix. 'The Roots of the Matrix' (2003) is a two-part documentary probing the philosophical and technological insirations for the trilogy. 'The Burly Man Chronicles' (2004) profiles the huge and varied community of people who worked together to create the films, including craftspeople, animators, actors and film crew members. Finally, in 'The Zion Archive' (2004), production assets including concept artwork, storyboards, drawings, music videos and trailers are showcased. Also featured is a special preview of 'Matrix Online'.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Collection 31 Jan 2005
Format:DVD
Given that only 40% of this boxset consists of actual film (the Animatrix included) I thought it would be rather naive to criticise this boxset because of the second and third films, as some people here seem to have done, thus I have rated this set highly due to the overall quality of each of the DVDs contained in it.
Firstly, I shall tackle the three films (discs 1, 3 and 5). The first Matrix is a masterpiece of filmmaking, enough said. Of course, as has been said, the second and third unfortunately did not live up to the hype surrounding them (although the second is still very good) which would drag down the quality of this boxset a little. They are still very entertaining films, none of which are by any means poor, and are deserving of attention from film lovers across the globe. The movie discs are quite plain when it comes to extras, although each has two commentaries, from the 'Philosophers' and the 'Critics'. I am yet to listen to the Philosophers commentary tracks although I can easily say that the Critics tracks are hugely entertaining and are probably worth the price of the boxset alone... the use of film critics to put down each of the films is such a novel idea; it gives the viewers a new-found respect for the Wachowski brothers and almost makes us forgive them for not recording commentaries of their own.
The Animatrix (disc 7) is an entirely different experience to the three movies. Nine short films in glorious animation help to gain a greater understanding of the Matrix concept and strenghten this boxset further. Each film has a short making-of documentary, some of which are quite insightful.
The 'Revisited' discs (2, 4 and 6) contain very interesting featurettes about the making of the movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Reality 6 Dec 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Matrix was given a brand new digital transfer in order to give it an appearance far closer to the look of the sequels than the original release. The contrast was improved, film grain was reduced, brightness was elevated in many scenes, and some CG shots revealed more detail. Also, colors were much more vibrant than the original DVD release. The most noticeable change was in the color timing, especially within the Matrix.
In addition, both The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions have received new transfers as well. The images are slightly cleaner and crisper than the original releases, with improved color and detail.

The standard definition collection consists of the following:
Disc 1 - The Matrix
Disc 2 - The Matrix Revisited
Disc 3 - The Matrix Reloaded
Disc 4 - The Matrix Reloaded Revisited
Disc 5 - The Matrix Revolutions
Disc 6 - The Matrix Revolutions Revisited
Disc 7 - The Animatrix
Disc 8 - The Roots of The Matrix
Disc 9 - The Burly Man Chronicles
Disc 10 - The Zion Archive

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 5 Dec 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Many thanks to Amazon for still being able to supply this wonderful Limited Edition 10 DVD set with Figurine and Collector's Book.
For any Matrix fan it is the ultimate gift containing 10 DVDs with over 35 hours of bonus material. An absolutely breathtaking set complete with complimentary collectable booklet and painted bust.
Best of all is the presentation. The collection is housed in its own, absolutely stunning, Perspex display case. On looks alone the standard collection fades into insignificance.
If you love the Matrix then this comes highly recommended and I am sure it will be highly collectable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great new realm of science fiction 30 Mar 2006
Format:DVD
First thing to dicuss, and perhaps the most important part of this collection, the films themselves. I loved them, they are extremly fluid with the action sequences (They actaully show you what happens, rather than do the shaky-cam thing that Hollywood tends to use), the story is clever (It may seem dumb on a few occassions, but like Smith says "Look past the flesh") and there are some great actors, particularly with villains played by Hugo Weaving and Lambert Wilson, but of course there are many others you won't forget about in a hurry. One of the best things to do is to watch the films in rapid succession, it seems to be far more natural that way. Obviously by now you would have noticed that the films have come under serious flack but it is your choice whether to believe it or not (Choice is a major philosophical part of the trilogy).
Now onto the extras for us happy fans, on the first volume (This is what the collection is divided into) is The Matrix and it's twin with the extras corresponding to that film, The Matrix Revisted, where the production is discussed in depth with a feature-length presentation (Roughly two hours). There is also some extra goodies to keep your eyes open for, as there is all around with the extras discs.
Now onto the Matrix Reloaded, the longest and perhaps most action-packed film of the trilogy, and its extras disc called the Matrix Reloaded Revisited. Unlike Matrix Revisted it is divided into featurretes, many on the sequences and show the sets were built, and what ideas were used. There are also commentaries from Special Effects wizard John Gaeta on how major shots were achieved.
Finally is the Matrix Revolutions, building up into what I think is an awesome and justifiable climax.
