The Matrix is a movie about a computer hacker Thomas Anderson has lived a relatively ordinary life. But to his intelligence he thinks is in the year 1999, that is until he is contacted by the enigmatic Morpheus who leads him into the real world. In reality, it is 200 years later, and the world has been laid waste and taken over by advanced artificial intelligence machines. The computers have created a false version of 20th-century life, the "Matrix", to keep the human slaves satisfied, while the AI machines draw power from the humans. Anderson, pursued constantly by "Agents" (computers who take on human form and infiltrate the Matrix), is hailed as "The One" who will lead the humans to overthrow the machines and reclaim the Earth. This is a great action movie that has a solid plot, phenomenal special effects that are first and currently only seen in this movie. For instance, when you get a 360-degree view of a character in the air while moving. Then of course on top of that, how they slow down a bullet it air and completely stop it. Its just mind blowing on how far advanced this movie is compared to others, special effects wise. Speaking of mind blowing, another one of my favorite movies is just that.
