The Matrix is an American media franchise created by the Wachowskis, Lana and Lilly Wachowski. It is comprised of a trilogy of sci-fi action films that started in 1999. These films were The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions. All three films were written and directed by the Wachowskis and were produced by Joel Silver. All three films had this cyberpunk theme going on. The films depict the fall of man, in which the creation of artificial intelligence has led to the rise of a race of self-aware machines. These machines have imprisoned mankind in a virtual reality called "the Matrix" and serve as a power source.
Every now and then though, some prisoners manage to break free somehow. They are immediately considered as a threat by the system. They are pursued by the A.I. from both inside and outside the Matrix. The story focuses specifically on a group of resistance fighters, Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus. They attempt to free humanity from their bondage while being pursued by the system's guardian in the form of Agent Smith. Add in some martial arts fights and bullet time-laden gunfights and it's no wonder why the franchise has so many fans. Matrix 4 is coming but it will be some time before it arrives. You could re-watch the trilogy again while waiting. Another idea would be to check out movies like it and we have just the list for you. Check out some of the best movies to watch while waiting for Matrix 4 and tell us what you thought.
