Product Description

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'.

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.

In short: This edition is food for thought. If you want a bunch of classic action movies go buy Die Hard, Lethal Weapon and True Lies but if you want to think about a movie like you've never thought about one before this is essential.
The detail: Time for honesty. I didn't like Reloaded. I despised Revolutions. Not for the reason that they were sprawling and overcomplicated but more for the fact that because they were sprawling and overcomplicated they lost so much of the solid audience base they'd built up with the original Matrix.
By the time I'd taken in all three movies, the Animatrix, Enter The Matrix and The Matrix Revisited I felt I'd pretty much got a feel for the series, its spirit and its intentions. Then I saw the roll call of features on this edition and, well, realised I might have some more work to do to get my head around what The Matrix experience was all about.
Finally someone has produced a DVD not with the director telling stories about how lovely it was to work with everybody and how the whole thing was neat-o but with two philosophers discussing the 'Manichean overtones' of the original Matrix. To then couple this with a commentary of movie critics ripping the film to pieces is a brave move and the most public admission that a film might not be everyone's cup of tea a film's director(s) are ever likely to make.
The fact is this is a risky box set. It does not massage its own ego and where the hyperbole threatens to be vomit inducing the Wachowskis have been very careful to deflate their own egos by giving voice to the many people who were unhappy with the conclusion of the trilogy.
As such for an interested party such as myself it has forced a re-evaluation of my previous opinion.

I bought this item recently, it came from "Little Music Shop" in Italy. At first I confess I didn't realize when I bought this that the seller was Italian =) so the writings on the outer cover are written in Italian (obviously) but that all was forgotten when I checked the Audio and Subtitles from the movies.

It has subtitles in Portuguese in all movies, I think it has audio in Portuguese also =) LOL!! I was afraid to try it =)
What I also find fantastic is that it has HD Audio in English and it has 5.1 Dolby Digital in 3 or 4 other languages also, that is rare to see in bluray I think. Not everybody has full HD systems (like me) but I'm starting to buy bluray movies that I like most and because of lower prices so... for now 5.1 Dolby Digital is fantastic!!

The movie is "The Matrix" and that's about it... not much to say other than IT'S A GREAT MOVIE!!

If you are looking for this with Portuguese subtitles or other, I recommend the seller also! If you contact them before, I did because of a lost package and they answered very quickly. I think they have all interest in confirming the subtitles.

I think French audio and subs, English, Spanish and Italian also included. This pack is done like I think blurays should, with "everything", I mean, all audios and subtitles as they could fit in there =) I'll try to post a photo of it so you can check the full features.

Excellent Pack!! Thinking on buying it? Go for it!

Best Regards, Pedro.

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
