    "The quintessential dystopian sci-fi fantasy of our time, The Matrix is so well-written and convoluted you might need repeated viewings to absorb all its complexities and themes. Bombastic action, amazing SFX and intricate storytelling go hand in hand in this futuristic tale. Too bad Keanu Reeves's acting is a tad wooden (he looks cool though). Who can forget Trinity's slow-mo kick/pose? Shame its sequels just don't hold a candle to the original. Follow the 🐇! 😉"

    "This movie is a classic and one everyone should see. Probably the best work of the Wachowski Brothers and a classic movie for Keanu Reeves. Basically a story of an ordinary man who learns of his extraordinary fate and how he manages to overcome it all. A sci-fi story filled with futuristic and insane settings and crazy action. This first movie really is a great movie on its own and again, one everyone should see at some point."

    "The Matrix is one of those films that revolutionized how films are made. It not only has a concept that's so unique that not everyone could understand it, it also featured great action scenes and CGI effects that are way ahead of its time. This is one film that is so believable you'd think you are really living in the Matrix and that explains a lot of things that you really don't understand."

    "The Matrix has a messy setup about technology and destiny. They fight technology with technology, at the same time believes in a prophecy that can't be explaind by science. Heck, the heavy allegory of Neo as a Christ figure is soo ingrained heavily. The Matrix even borrowed inspiration from Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell."

    "The Matrix is one of my favorite movies of all time. While the fight scenes and CGI are top-notch, the main thing about this movie is in its concepts. What if this future is happening right now? What if we're all plugged into the Matrix and we don't have any idea? Just thinking about that gives me the chills."

It had a great storyline and thought-provoking concept and premises. Best of all, I loved the action scenes. That's saying a lot especially from a gal who's into chick-flicks!"

No other movie like this comes close to The Matrix! Plus, Keanu Reeves is super hott here! I love it!"

    "Sci-fi meets Kung-fu. This is a provocative film that will force you to think. What if this is really happening? Keanu Reeves wore Neo's mantle very well and Lawrence Fishburne felt like he was born to play Morpheus. One of the best movies of all time, not in just the science-fiction category."

    "The Matrix outranks Star Wars: The Phantom Menace yet again. To be honest, The Matrix really is a better movie than the Episode One and it probably is the best movie released in 1999. The CGI is way ahead of its time and the fight scenes are aesthetically pleasing on the eyes."
