Computer programmer Neo learns this truth and is drawn into a rebellion against the machines, which involves other people who have been freed from the “dream world.”

  1. At first I thought it was boring, but then I liked it. It has been funny and at the same time disgusting because they have come to acomulate all that trash. It is also very kind on the part of the protagonist to help the people even if they have not agreed and treated him badly.

  2. A large part of the appeal of ‘The Matrix’ for me was its philosophical and religious -mostly Buddhist–
    underpinnings…

    The movie portrays two levels of reality: our everyday existence and a deeper, more significant, underlying reality (the matrix). This is very much like the Two Truths in Buddhism: relative truth, in which everything is perception, and ultimate truth which is the way things really are (objective reality).

  3. I am not saw the movie, but from what I have read, I think it is interesting and fun. All the films are different,but I think with this movie you can imagine many things about the future. When I have the possibility to see “the matrix “, I will see this movie.

  4. I’ve seen this film more than 10 times, it is one of my favourites. The story talks about a virtual simulation called MATRIX, and actually…it is where we live! The real world coexists with matrix and it’s dominated by the machines, humans are just a tool (energy tool). I was 5 years old when I first saw this film, and I was very shocked because I did not understand a single scene. I think this is the best one of the trilogy, because the next ones have an horrendous CGI and the story is enlongated needlessly. Anyway, this film raises philosophical questions and theories of parallel worlds with mastery, making the spectator think if our world is in fact matrix (there are tons of articles saying that we live in matrix)
    MUST SEE FILM

  5. This is he first time that I see Matrix. The film is different from other films that I have seen. It reminds me to Plato’s cave, because Neo lives inside the cave (a virtual world) until Morpheus shows him the real world, and this reallity makes you think about the power that we are giving to machines.
    In my opinion the film is good because it makes me think all the time. I believe that I have to see it again in order to understand it better.

  6. This film is awesome, it has a good argument which is plenty of imagination. It makes you think about the truth, the reality. For me, Matrix seems like a religion, there’s another world, but you don’t know it exists. Perhaps we are everybody in the Matrix :O

    But the world which is outside is not as good as Paradise for example, it’s controlled by machines and we are used like resources. I like the idea of living happy in a dream world without knowing the truth, but I would prefer to be in the real world and fight against a world dominated by machines.

    You chose a good film, I liked it. It was better than the “Life of Brian”, it was horrible!

  7. “The Matrix”: to be honest, I don´t like the movie so much because I´m not a science-film movies fan.
    But I have to say that I would see it again just to actually understand it. It is due to this is a movie that you can´t just see once if you really want to know what is going on in this movie. All the action happens pretty fast, so you always have to keep an eye on it by the time you also have to be listening everything characters say. In fact, the movie has a lot of philosophy.
    Going a bit deeper, the thesis of “The Matrix” is the same as the Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. They think that the world where they live is the reality, and actually, it is not.

  8. It is about a computer engineer called Thomas who is also a hacker at night. Neo has to choose between the red pill that meant to discover the real world or the blue one which meant a lie and he chose the red one. I liked this film due to the action it contains, the special effects are great.

  9. This was the first time that i saw the film. I liked a lot, but it is very strange. At the first minutes, i didn´t understand anything, but when Neo went out to the real world everything made sense.
    The movie was amazing because The Matrix, explain you how the mind can be manipulated and you can´t realize the reality. I recommend this film to everyone because it is very entertaining and you don´t get bored in any moment.

  10. The movie sets out a future world in which humas are governed and managed by machines. I’ve never seen it before because I don’t use to watch his kind of films as I don’t like them, but in this case I’ve liked it a lot. Besides, after seen it I’ve remembered a magazine I read about Univers, Earth and the way it all is organized. There the author said that there were some theories in which was reflected that we were controlled as if we were part of a game or something similar, so it looked me like a good similarity with the plot of this movie.
