Neo (Keanu Reeves) is a pretty standard computer hacker, up all night, struggling with work. Then he is contacted by a mysterious woman, Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) who leads him to Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) and before long, he learns that the world is not as he sees it – he’s in The Matrix, being chased by Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) and trying to figure out if he can save the human race.
Love it. Loved it when I saw it when it was first released, and I still feel as though I could watch it again and again. I love the action, I love that scene with them going in to the building, I love the concept, I just loved it all.
The Matrix won Oscars for Best Film Editing, Best Sound, Best Effects – Sound Effects Editing and Best Effects – Visual Effects.
