The Matrix 
Ground Breaking Special Effects
3.5/4 stars

Okay, I'll admit it. When I first went to see this film at the cinema, I couldnt leave quick enough. Keanu Reeves is quite wooden and the character Neo is a cliched 'reluctant hero'. Agent Smith isnt exactly one of the most menacing villains ever created but his emotionless overtone is the saving grace of the character. Yet despite these fundamental flaws, Matrix has something about it that makes you just want to stop and stare and take it all in. What this thing is I cannot quite define. Perhaps its the sobering idea that reality is not always what it appears to be. Perhaps its the idea that given the choice, what would you, or I, or any of us do? Live on, blissfully unaware in a false reality, living a happy life of ignorance? Or choose to have your freedom, live in fear of your life in a harsh reality? Fishburne is once again excellent with and Carrie Ann Moss clearly an up and coming actress to watch with interest. All the doubters should watch this film at least one more time, it worked for me!
