Finally got to see this on the big screen thanks to the TIFF Bell Lightbox in glorious 35mm. My reaction: whoa!
On top of that, I was able to participate in a round table discussion over the film’s technical innovations, thematic philosophies, religious metaphors, undertones of gender politics, and absolute ass-kicking action. Can a movie be any more perfect?
The Martix is a great example of a movie that will live for ever or a very log time. The story and concept are out of this world. Keanu Reeves plays his role with utter brilliance, the cast was very well put together and the graphics are still to this day amazing. All in all one of the best movies of all time.
The benchmark for all sci-fi films to come
The story of a reluctant Christ-like protagonist set against a baroque, MTV backdrop, The Matrix is the definitive hybrid of technical wizardry and contextual excellence that should be the benchmark for all sci-fi films to come.
Hollywood has had some problems combining form and matter in the sci-fi genre. There have been a lot of visually stunning works but nobody cared about the hero. (Or nobody simply cared about anything.) There a few, though, which aroused interest and intellect but nobody ‘ooh’-ed or ‘aah’-ed at the special effects. With The Matrix, both elements are perfectly en sync. Not only did we want to cheer on the heroes to victory, we wanted them to bludgeon the opposition. Not only did we sit in awe as Neo evaded those bullets in limbo-rock fashion, we salivated.
But what makes The Matrix several cuts above the rest of the films in its genre is that there are simply no loopholes. The script, written by the Wachowski brothers is intelligent but carefully not geeky. The kung-fu sequences were deftly shot — something even Bruce Lee would’ve been proud of. The photography was breathtaking. (I bet if you had to cut every frame on the reel and had it developed and printed, every single frame would stand on its own.) And the acting? Maybe not the best Keanu Reeves but name me an actor who has box-office appeal but could portray the uneasy and vulnerable protagonist, Neo, to a T the way Reeves did. But, come to think of it, if you pit any actor beside Laurence Fishburne, you’re bound to confuse that actor for bad acting. As Morpheus, Mr. Fishburne is simply wicked! Shades of his mentor-role in Higher Learning, nobody exudes that aura of quiet intensity than Mr. Fishburne. His character, battle-scarred but always composed Morpheus, is given an extra dose of mortality (He loves Neo to a fault.) only Mr. Fishburne can flesh out.
People will say what they want to say about how good The Matrix is but the bottomline is this: finally there’s a philosophical film that has cut through this generation. My generation. The Wachowski brothers probably scribbled a little P.S. note when they finished the script saying: THINK FOR A MOMENT ABOUT YOUR EXISTENCE. What is the Matrix, you ask? Something that’s closer to reality than you think.
Either that or it’s my personal choice for best film of all-time.
One of the best movies ever! (This review is only about the original Matrix movie)
The Matrix is one of the best sci-fi movies ever made!
I read it used to be one of Tarantino’s favourite ones too, but the second and third ones ruined the whole beautiful idea and brought the overall value of the movie pretty low.
The story/philosophy is mind-blowing and the directing, special effects and the overall performance absolutely amazing.
Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves) is an IT specialist in his day-to-day job and a hacker (alias Neo) during the night. He is looking for Morpheous (Lawrence Fishburn) who could give him the answer to the question ‘What is the Matrix?’ The more relevant questions to ask, though, would be “How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?” and “How would you know if what is happening right now is not a virtual reality?”
The antagonist, Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving), is one of my favourite characters. Just watch his mouth – the way he speaks, the tone and pitch of his voice, his pronunciation, even the pauses he makes while speaking, have an incredible effect on the viewer. The concept of people being like cancer to this world is absolutely astounding.
Carrie Ann Moss was the perfect choice for Trinity because any other blond, big lipped, big brested ‘bimbo’ would have totally ruined her character.
A few more questions pop up in one’s mind. “Haven’t we gone too far creating such super intelligent machines?”, “What if they become so powerfull one day and take control over humanity?”
The acting’s just amazing, all of them, no exceptions. The 4 leading characters though… (Morphy, Trinity, Neo & Agent Smith) – (yes, to me there are 4 leads) – I love them all. I can’t imagine the movie with any other 4 actors but L. Fishbourn, C.A. Moss, Keanu and H. Weaving. They were born to play those roles.
Whoever did the casting did a terrific job. Bravo!
Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!
