let's consider The Matrix, shall we? a movie that is over 10 years old, a sci-fi flick, alternate realities, black leather, more black leather, mixed martial arts… no wonder it has endured.
the trailer is…pretty mild, considering
I'll confess. I'll be kicked out of the movie purist group. I put on this flick, get to the lobby shootout scene, crank up the volume and sit back. this be teh shit.
and there is more, and more, and more. pure adrenaline. and then… no weapons, no alt realities, just an old-fashioned hand-to-hand of epic proportions
mind you, there is a nasty ugly rumor that The Matrix is just the first of a trilogy.
whatever two movies followed this one, even with the same actors, directors, and so on, have nothing to add to this movie. avoid them at all cost. have you been unlucky enough to have seen that drivel, the only solution is to get The Matrix and watch it again and again until any memory of those other movies recedes into the distance.
