In this complex story that aspires to mythology, a computer hacker (Keanu Reeves) searches for the truth behind the mysterious force known as the Matrix. He finds his answer with a group of strangers led by the charismatic Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne). What they encounter in confronting that truth makes for a lightning-paced, eye-popping thrill ride of a movie that cleverly combines sociopolitical commentary with cutting-edge special effects.
Really fun, kind of illogical, very very stylish. Plot not that coherent, but it works nonetheless. Fishburne's character and acting is standout excellent. Incredible, innovative action scenes. Please, please, do NOT watch the sequels.
