The Matrix is a 1999 science fiction-action film written and directed by Larry and Andy Wachowski and starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pantoliano, and Hugo Weaving. This film starts out with Neo a hacker his real name Thomas A. Anderson  a Computer programmer, he gets a strange message on his computer from that says “follow the white rabbit” so he does and meets  Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) who introduces him to Morpheus  (Laurence Fishburne) . Morpheus  offers him the chance to learn the truth about the Matrix by either taking a blue pill which will keep him the same, or a red pill which offers the answer to what this Matrix is. This then leads him to the answer but it’s not anything like he expects or what I expected the first time I saw this film in a theater.
 
The Matrix new
 
This is one of the best action sci-fi movies ever, and won an Oscar for visual effects, which it well deserved. I saw in Hollywood Laurence Fishburne one day and I told him ”I took the Blue Pill” he laughed out load and said “that’s funny”. Hugo Weaving plays agent Smith and this is his greatest role and then went to star as V in V for Vendetta which is again on my top ten list of my favorite film. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss both due a superb job of acting and their roles are well played and there is chemistry that makes it easy to watch. There are some amazing stunts and effects in this film, Neo dodging bullets and helicopters crashing into buildings, all really well done and given the highest award you can get the Oscar. It’s one of those films that is fun to watch with someone that hasn’t seen it, and watch them as they star to get it. Laurence Fishburne plays Morpheus the leader of the resistance and this is his signature role which he uses his voice to calmly explain to Neo what’s going on in this futuristic reality. This film is still on the best selling DVD, blu-rays on Amazon even after ten years and spawned two sequels and video games. This is such a classic if you haven’t seen it you should, on my Top-Ten list.
Directed by Wachowski brothers
