Storyline

Thomas A. Anderson is a man living two lives. By day he is an average computer programmer and by night a hacker known as Neo. Neo has always questioned his reality, but the truth is far beyond his imagination. Neo finds himself targeted by the police when he is contacted by Morpheus, a legendary computer hacker branded a terrorist by the government. Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity have been captured by a race of machines that live off of the humans' body heat and electrochemical energy and who imprison their minds within an artificial reality known as the Matrix. As a rebel against the machines, Neo must return to the Matrix and confront the agents: super-powerful computer programs devoted to snuffing out Neo and the entire human rebellion.

Trivia

Warner Brothers green-lit the movie fairly late during pre-production. For a long time, artists working on pre-production were not sure whether the film was ever going to be made. See more »

Goofs

Morpheus states that a human "generates more energy than a 120V battery". The voltage of a battery says nothing about its energy content on its own; for that, the battery's ampere-hour rating is needed. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the UK, 10 seconds of footage was cut from the cinema version to attain a more commercial "15" certificate. The BBFC asked for cuts to 8 head-butts - in the fight between Morpheus and Agent Smith (1 and 3 respectively), and in the subway fight between Neo and Agent Smith (2 each). All UK video and DVD releases featured the same cut print and, even though the commentary was left off the first UK DVD release for this reason, the version featured in the 'Attache Case' box set includes the commentary but still features the cut version. The cuts were finally waived in 2006. See more »

Raises the bar for sci-fi films for years to come
29 March 2000 | by wolf_wallaceSee all my reviews

The Wachowski Brothers vision of a possible future takes the visual and sound aspects of filmmaking to a new high. Incorporating older still photography with computer enhancement to the degree that appears on the screen has raised the genre to a level that will be very hard-pressed by filmmakers for a number of years. Acting was wonderful, script, visual, sound, everything about this film is a tribute to a usually overlooked genre.
