Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Take a pinch of The Terminator, a dash of William Gibson's computer cowboy sensibility, add a healthy dollop of Hong Kong action cinema, and the result is The Matrix, the most inventive science fiction flick to light up a movie screen in recent years. Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), a super-cool, philosophy-spouting rebel with psychic abilities, and his latex-sheathed female sidekick, Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), turn disaffected computer wiz Neo (Keanu Reeves) into a kung fu-fighting warrior who goes head to head against the forces of evil deep in cyberspace. Even if some viewers get lost in the twisting storyline, the dazzling special effects and mind-blowing sets will keep most of them on the very edge of their seats. In this two-disc set, The Matrix is packaged together with The Matrix Revisited, a making-of documentary that offers a no-holds-barred, behind-the-scenes look of this modern classic that, like Star Wars before it, redefined the sci-fi/action genre for all time. From the grueling physical training of stunt-performing stars Reeves, Fishburne, and Moss to the revelatory footage, fans will find themselves even more deeply ensnared within The Matrix. In new interviews, director Andy Wachowski, producer Joel Silver, and master choreographer Yuen Woo-Ping (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) offer more details on the film's origins and the development of its Oscar-winning special effects. And just when you thought it was over, the real gem comes: A special sneak peek at the top-secret sets of the upcoming sequels, plus a first look at the upcoming Matrix television anime project.
