5.0 out of 5 stars Restored my faith in SF cinema
SF Movies have suffered from a lack of style in recent years. There's only so many times you can see Bladerunner or Alien ripped off cheaply before you start to get jaded. And it doesn't help that they keep casting muscular dolts with the intellect of a plank in violent revenge fantasies that do little more than ape the "Death Wish" movies.
So it's three cheers for...

2.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray version is tinted green - beware.
Obviously The Matrix is a fantastic film, but this version of the film is not strictly the original - it is the version from the DVD boxed set that was released a few years ago, and all scenes set within the Matrix have been tinted green, to keep in line with the production design of the sequels.

If you were familiar with the film (i.e, you watched it many...

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of the matrix, 12 Jan. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: The Matrix [1999] [DVD] (DVD)
This film is one of my favourites, it has an amazing, gripping storyline which viewers will love. It includes many genres - romance, action, sci-fi, comedy to suit everyones tastes! The storyline is a little confusing to start with but it soon picks up and you will understand it especially by the end of the film! I would recommend this film to anyone! At first I thought it wouldn't be my kind of film, but then I brought it at a friends recommendation and I loved it! All the actors/actresses are amazing and give great performances, its the kinda film you can get totally into and stay watching, gripped right up until the end =)

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent film but spoiled a bit by repetitive effects, 30 Mar. 2003
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Matrix [1999] [DVD] (DVD)
I found this film very exciting and interesting. This did make me think about the way we live - what if life is an illusion? The special effects were stunning but were spoiled a bit because of the fact they did the same things time again. the gun homour was good and the way the action got started very quickly was a real plus because most films take a while to wind up to a good finish and have all the good parts in a 10 minute sequence. Summary: A good all round film with excellent actors, spoiled a bit by repetitive effects, but a film I will watch again and again and again and again and.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi Finds Its' Way Back Into The Mainstream Again, 30 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Matrix [VHS] [1999] (VHS Tape)
The old rubber suits, cardboard sets and little green men of the fifties give way to computer graphics that will make your eyes pop. The highly original and quite terrifying plot is a little hard to understand, but the action gets the adrenaline flowing and thankfully, neither the actors nor the script are turkeys. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable film with a brilliant plot and effects to tame Titanic, the Matrix is a reel-to-reel winner. I would rank it behind The Talented Mr. Ripley, American Beauty and of course Fight Club in the battle for movie of 1999.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing, But Decent Enough Movie, 1 Jun. 2000
This review is from: The Matrix [VHS] [1999] (VHS Tape)
With almost every Matrix review here giving it 5 stars, and it being my friend's favourite movie of all time, I thought it'd be excellent - but it wasn't. it wasn't bad, mind you - it had amazing special effects, trendy clothes, an excellent and original screenplay, but it got a little boring at times. The action sequences kicked @$$, but it wasn't anything special. You should probably rent it, but don't buy it unless you love it when you rent it, because it is VERY dissapointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best films I've ever seen!!!!!, 10 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Matrix [VHS] [1999] (VHS Tape)
This film is brilliant. The special effects are mind blowing. The storyline is equally strong. Laurence fishbourne is amazing. Keanu Reeves plays a computer hacker called Neo and is "the one". A man destined to free the world from the artificial intellignece holding the earth captive. The Kung Fu is very realistic, each of the actors took a 6 month course in the art to make it look real. if u r looking for suave, look no further. This is the epiphony of suave.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 18 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Matrix [1999] [DVD] (DVD)
This film is one of the few all rounders that get released once every decade that is nigh on perfect. The concept and storyline are of the highest to enter Hollywood and the film 'Begins' with unbelieveably impressive graphics. Arguably all of the actors involved turn in respectable performances but are however immediately delved with the task of some iffy screenplay from the start. Regardless of which this film is still unmissable and be sure to buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best film ever, 19 April 2000
This review is from: The Matrix [1999] [DVD] (DVD)
To anyone who fully understands it this is the best film ever. This film is loved by everyone who sees it exept of course the small minority who hate it because they can't understand it. The acting is great the Special FX are the best I have ever seen. Buy the DVD if possible as this gives so much of a boost to the quality of the film. for DVD owners - The best chapter has to be No. 29. My only worry with this film is - How can such a great film have a sequel that is better - the sequel has to be worse.

By A Customer
This review is from: The Matrix [1999] [DVD] (DVD)
This film is amazing, the first time i saw it at the cinema it completely spaced me out.There is one bit in the film that didn't make sence, if the agents where part of the matrix, why not give themselves fully automatic weopons,that and only one or to things in the plot that didn't really check outbut nothings perfect, right. surly the best film i have seem in a very long time, can't wait for the sequels.

4.0 out of 5 stars A mind-bender, classic!, 28 Mar. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Matrix [1999] [DVD] (DVD)
One of the best sci-fi films of recent times. Fantastic special effects, coupled with a storyline that puts that little bit of doubt and wonder in the back of your mind. A great film worthy of the full five stars and would have got them, but nothing on the sci-fi scene has yet touched Bladerunner! A definite close second.
