Movie Review: The Matrix

One of my cousins gave Matrix trilogy a week ago. In spite of having watched it several times, I was like let’s see if I get it this time. Today I completed the trilogy and the funny thing is that I did not recall the story line at all. It was like watching it for the first time, though I remembered that I have certainly watched it before. Although I still have some unanswered questions but I could settle for what I have understood for now since it is one of the most complicated movies of all time.

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

Symbolism, look for symbols and you will start finding clues in almost every frame. The first movie was a true masterpiece, the subsequent movies did not do justice with the standards they had set with the first one.

After researching on the internet I found out that there were 6 years of preproduction work that was there for the first movie, that’s a lot of hard work. The first movie got released in 1999, and the technology is still watchable. I mean at any point I didn’t feel like I was watching a movie that old which is awesome.

Have you watched it yet? 

More importantly, have you understood it yet?
