The Matrix (1999)

I wasn't particularly impressed by this epic film when I first saw it - just the stage of life I was in at the time. I picked up all four movies for $10 a while back and decided to rewatch it along with the continuing saga.

Keanu Reeves wasn't as bad as I expected and the film, while quite melodramatic and over the top one-liners, was great! As one of the better early comic book type films in recent years, The Matrix redefined what smart action was capable of. It also tells a great parable!

I'm actually looking forward to seeing the next three (though their reviews drop considerably from what I recall).
