Aro Recommended Matrix, The


USA 1998, 136 minutes
Dir. Lana Wachowski, Lilly Wachowski
Rating: [M]
Genres: Science Fiction / Futurism

Topics: Computers & Tech, Post-Apocalyptic.


Aroview: Computer hacker Keanu Reeves is singled out by a high-tech guerilla network and trained as an operative to seize power from the evil guardians of the 'matrix'. Saturated in cosmetic cool and exhilarating state-of-the-art effects, the hottest sci-fi hit of the late 90s keeps you guessing with an intriguing (if slightly nonsensical) riff on the 'alternate-reality conspiracy' vogue.

Directing siblings Wachowski outdo themselves here, but owe the usual visionary debts to the likes of James Cameron and Ridley Scott.
