9/10

The Matrix is very entertaining and it looks great. Unlike some other people in this thread, I did care about the plot and the characters and I didn't think it was difficult to understand. A really interesting sci-fi action movie that steals from other films, books, myths, whatever and synthesizes them into something new. The sequels are another matter, but they don't affect my rating for the original.



I've not seen it since it came out and the first 20 minutes, from memory are crap, but after that it's about
. I'd have to watch it again to give it a rating I'd be happy with.

I knocked off half a point because it gave us the phrase "Trinity syndrome".

First I'm hearing of that. I'll go look it up.

Welcome to the human race...
Like I've loved the movie since I first saw it at 11 and probably won't drop it below 4.5 but damn does that aspect stand out like a sore thumb these days (and is arguably exacerbated by the sequels).
