Add a Quote

Agent Smith: I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area.
There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague. And we... are the cure.

   


Agent Smith: I hate this place. This... zoo, this prison, this reality. Whatever you want to call it. I can't smell any longer. It's the smell... if there is such a thing. I feel saturated by it. I can taste your stink. And every time I do, I fear that I've somehow been infected by it. It's repulsive, isn't it. I must get out of here. I must get free.
   


Computer screen: Wake up, Neo... The Matrix has you... Follow the white rabbit. Knock, knock, Neo.
   


Neo: You ever have that feeling where you're not sure if you're awake or still dreaming?
Choi: Mmm, all the time. It's called Mescaline.

   


Neo: What is the Matrix?
   


Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church... when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison... for your mind. Unfortunately, no ne can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

   


Morpheus: Welcome to the real world.
   


Neo: Why do my eyes hurt?
Morpheus: You've never used them before.

   


Cypher: You know... I know this steak doesn't exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious. After 9 years, you know what I realize? (Tastes the food.) Ignorance is bliss.
   


Operator: What do you need... besides a miracle?
Neo: Guns. Lots of guns.

   


Neo: There is no spoon.
   


Agent Smith: I'm gonna enjoy watching you die, Mr. Anderson.
   


Agent Smith: Hear that, Mr. Anderson. That is the sound of inevitability. It is the sound of your death. Good bye, Mr. Anderson.
Neo: My name... is Neo.

Revolutionary film
By Jack Anderson on December 26, 2018
 (9/10)

THE MATRIX REVOLUTION
Released in 1999, The Matrix is one of those films that turned moviegoers to the 21th century.
I was 15 at the time this movie came out, and I remember precisely going with some friends in the nearest city to watch it on the big screen, and then coming back and mimicking the fight scenes while waiting for the train. I was hooked instantly and the film had a huge impact on our generation.
I had purchased the Nokia 8110 phone, the same as the one from the film, I had bought the sunglasses as well, even though there were not exactly like the ones from the film - anyway.

CLASSIC ARC
While the film is visually revolutionary, its story-arc structure is classic. Discovery, the inciting moment (Neo is joining the Matrix), the moment where we think that all hope is lost (the ship under attack and Neo dead), the climatic resolution (Neo becomes the One and saves the day) and the epilogue (Neo flies!).

SFX
The special effects were truly revolutionary in 1999 and watching this film almost twenty years after, I must say they did aged well. There is a right mix of CGI and real effects. CGI cannot go without real effects (while the opposite can.)

GREAT SETS
The sets of the film are truly terrific.

VISUALLY
Visually, the movie is sublime. Green is the color, but this is way beyond that.

MUSIC
The score from Don Davis is extremely powerful and working beautifully.

STORY
The story is great because we can all relate to Neo, being stuck in a life that feels real but is not. I really loved this concept, as well as the references to Alice in Wonderland.

RULES
One of the reason the film works so well is because the Matrix feels real, in a sense that the characters can actually die within the Matrix. This makes this film completely different from most of the superhero movies, where the superheroes are actually usually invincible.

SUMMARY
An outstanding sci-fi movie. I give it 9 out of 10.
