I certainly can't argue, or complain (and I won't), about the absolute visual excellence of The Matrix. It wouldn't make any sense to even try..... But when it comes to the story (which I found to be far too long) - The Matrix is, most definitely, open to some reasonable argument and dissection.

For example - In regards to the beliefs and decisions made by The Legendary Morpheus - It totally baffled me that Morpheus never even once suspected that The Oracle was, in fact, nothing more than just another program from the Machine Room.... Did he really think that she was, in actuality, a "real", bona-fide Oracle?

When you seriously consider the fact that Morpheus knew a great deal more, than most, about the workings of The Matrix, his gullibility toward The Oracle, and her blathering, was truly unbelievable. All of The Oracle's very questionable fortune-telling/predictions were taken by Morpheus at literal face value. He never even bothered to thoroughly investigate who, or what, she really was.

And, yeah - OK - The Oracle never did do Morpheus and his crew any wrong. But, all the same, she was not one of them. How could she have ever been completely trusted not to double-cross them?.... Remember - The Matrix was chock full of glitches.

The following utterance is an "Agent Smith" quote taken directly from The Matrix.... After reading it through - Ask yourself if you think that this quote was, in fact, the Wachowski kids' (Yep. That's Lana & Lilly) contemptuously telling their audience exactly what they thought of them..... Uh?.... Need I say more?

"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 and 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 and 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're a plague and we are the cure."

Well, what do you think??.... Pretty hateful and cynical stuff, eh?

Okay, so. You don't have to like the early 90's grunge band "Nirvana," but you should at least recognize the impact their music had on a generation of youth. In much the same way, "The Matrix" is one of those movies that rocked the minds of those who saw it in the theater when it came out... the impact it had on the collective consciousness -at the time- was immense. "WAKE UP!" the movie screams in the closing credits... and for many, "The Matrix" was -and is- a powerful wake-up call. Basically... it rocked peoples world but unlike the band Nirvana, who sang about angst and social apathy, "The Matrix" asks us to unplug, take control of our destiny, and resist. BLUE PILL OR RED PILL? The choice is yours...

The Matrix is an excellent movie that combines science fiction, shoot-em-up action, and philosophical questions about the nature of Reality. If you are plugged in to a computer, and that computer presents you with a reality that is completely indistinguishable from your own, is it any less real?
This movie has exceptional special effects, beautiful cinematography, an excellent soundtrack, well-crafted dialogue, and respectable acting. Keanu Reeves may be a lousy actor, but I think that the Matrix is probably his best performance to date. One of the best sci-fi movies, must watch!

Morpheus: 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.

It's not the Wachovski brothers'. The African American lady who created Matrix and the Terminator last year won billions in court for copyright infringement and theft of royalties.
