The Matrix1

Published on June 19th, 2019

Thomas A. Anderson is a man living two lives. By day he is an average computer programmer and by night a hacker known as Neo. Neo has always questioned his reality, but the truth is far beyond his imagination. Neo finds himself targeted by the police when he is contacted by Morpheus, a legendary computer hacker branded a terrorist by the government.

Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity have been captured by a race of machines that live off of the humans’ body heat and electrochemical energy and who imprison their minds within an artificial reality known as the Matrix.

As a rebel against the machines, Neo must return to the Matrix and confront the agents: super-powerful computer programs devoted to snuffing out Neo and the entire human rebellion.

Movie Reviews: “The Matrix

Movie Review: The Hollywood Reporter

Word-of-mouth will be giddy, with young and mature males lining up for a technologically stunning movie that furthers the genre and features crowd-pleasing performances to go with the frequent scenes of gunplay and violence.

Kudos to the writing and directing team of Larry and Andy Wachowski — who debuted impressively with the small-scale, tightly wound Bound — for fashioning a brain-twisting, eye-popping thriller that recalls The Terminator, Total Recall and Stanislaw Lem’s great novel The Futurological Congress.

The lead character played by Keanu Reeves discovers that everyday reality is a computer-created illusion and that future humans are locked in an epic struggle with intelligent machines.

Movie Review: The Seattle Times

“The Matrix,” with Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss. Written and directed by Andy and Larry Wachowski. Alderwood, Auburn Cinema 17, Crossroads, East Valley 13, Everett Mall 1-3, Factoria, Gateway, Issaquah 9, Kent 6, Kirkland Parkplace, Mountlake 9, Neptune, Northgate, Redmond Town Centre, Southcenter, South Hill Mall, Woodinville 12. 120 minutes. “R” – Restricted because of violence, profanity and gore.

Extremely violent, extremely preposterous, extremely entertaining, “The Matrix” succeeds at two extremely difficult tasks: as a vast, exciting virtual-reality movie and as a defibrillator for Keanu Reeves’ big screen career.

Using the pantheon of movie iconography from the past 100 years – from “High Noon” showdowns, to bad kung fu, to love’s first kiss – the writing/directing team of the Wachowski brothers, Larry and Andy, achieves a fantastic, hodgepodge symmetry using hacker noir, comedy and mindless action.

Thomas Anderson (Reeves) is a talented computer programmer at a monolithic corporation during the day, but at night he’s an unscrupulous hacker tagged Neo. His work brings him to the attention of Morpheus (Fishburne), a mysterious stranger who tantalizes Neo.

Movie Review: Chicago Tribune

The Matrix

Brothers Larry and Andy Wachowski are building themselves quite an odd little resume. Their first film credit was for co-writing the critically reviled Sylvester Stallone/Antonio Banderas dum-dum action film “Assassins.” Next came their joint writing-directing debut, “Bound,” a 1996 indie hit and the ultimate guy flick: It worked a steamy lesbian relationship (between Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly) into a violent, smartly plotted mob doublecross story.

From the look of it, you’d never guess that the makers of “Bound” would have anything to do with “The Matrix,” an extravagantly designed futuristic thriller starring Keanu Reeves as a possible savior. Whereas “Bound” is driven by intimate interactions, “The Matrix” is more about finding a place for humans amid overwhelming visuals and big ideas such as What Is Reality?

At times you think the Chicago-raised brothers have bitten off more than they can chew. They wrote “The Matrix” before “Bound,” and it has the feel of a story concocted by younger minds not yet wary of overreaching.
