The Matrix

The Matrix ★★★½

With its state of the art effects, stunts, and choreography as well as its abundance of symbolism, profundity, and challenging ideas, The Matrix is a daring, ambitious, imaginative, groundbreaking, and revolutionary piece of science fiction that aims for the stars but doesn’t quite reach them due to its campy and flashy fight scenes, an unconvincing romance, a pathetic character arc (true love’s kiss won’t cut it) for a paper-thin protagonist with a countenance as dull as a pile of bricks, and some dated and cheesy moments and aspects that make the film feel like it’s definitely from 1999 and not 2199.
