Science fiction can toy with our minds like a filter in our home that won't stop bleeping. "The Matrix" is one of those complex and sometimes uncomprehending to some sci-fi thrillers that is so visually entertaining that you might get lost from it's original story. Pay attention to this! Thomas A. Anderson (Keanu Reeves) is a computer programmer and 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 (Laurence Fishburne), a legendary computer hacker outlawed by the government. Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a devastating world where humanity has been controlled by a race of machines that live off of the humans' body heat and energy and manipulate 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. The plot is very science related but is a little confusing. That doesn't prevent pure cinematic entertainment from being replaced. The visual content "The Matrix' contains is historical. Intense shootouts and bizarre production designs make this not only fun to watch, but more and more intriguing and interesting as the film carries on. This film is a Wachowski brothers film, as they wrote and directed it. The ideas they capture are very nerdy but none the less awesome. They allow an incredibly complex science film relate to some of the coolest action films that take place in normal time period by adding elements like shootouts and cheesy dialogue to make it popcorny and not all complex. The legendary costumes with the suits, classes and capes all make the film's setting unique and fun. The film can also bring up interesting ideas about protecting humanity. rising up against corruption and enjoying simple life-styles. The differences are very different in the Matrix world than in the real world, but we find many interesting similarities to our world that this electric and kinetic world has to offer. Visual films that make you think a little are the perfect combination of fun and intelligence. Adding them up is a tough process, so we'll see which side you end up on: Thinking, enjoying the action, or both?
