  • The Matrix Full Movie Rewatch & Analysis! What hidden details did you miss from The Matrix when it premiered 20 years ago, and how did it influence all action & sci-fi cinema from Inception to John Wick? By popular demand, Erik Voss rewatches The Matrix (1999) for a scene-by-scene, in-depth breakdown, exploring the deeper philosophy of the Wachowskis' cyberpunk concepts and secret subliminal messages that are only now being discovered. How does The Matrix opening scene discreetly foreshadow the major reveals later in the film -- Cypher's betrayal, Agent Smith's uniqueness, and the movie's groundbreaking action with wire-stunts, martial arts, firearm choreography, and "bullet time"? In what ways does The Matrix parallel its primary inspiration, Ghost in the Shell (1995)? And does The Matrix deserve its revered status, or was it merely overthought gun porn for anime-lovers who wear sunglasses inside Hot Topic?

    20 years ago I walked out of a movie theatre with my mind completely blown. I turned to my friend and said, "it's going to be a long time before I see another movie that good." I still haven't.

    He didn't talk about one of the coolest things people miss. He accepted cookies before hearing the oracle's information. Like most webpages ask you to accept.

    the 4th John Wick is actually going to be the 4th Matrix where Neo awakens from a Gun Simulator/Assasin program.

    It was '99, older brother told mom and dad he was taking me to see The Prince of Egypt by Disney, got to the theatre and said "f*#% that we're watching The Matrix."
    That day, my brother not only achieved the highly coveted title of "Ultimate Older Brother", but it was also the beginning of me running across walls with my father's trench coat, that which he was never able to find once again...

    This movie is special. Back in 1999 we all knew we saw something special.

    "Using news media to lie about Morpheus is a nod to the ministry of truth in 1984."
    ... and also Real Life

    huh. 70 years they remained in Babylon. 1999 + 70 = 2069, when the ship was built.

    I @#$& love this film. The sequels didn't work for me. In fact they almost ruined the whole story for me.The first Matrix stands perfectly well on its own. IMHO.

    He said that nebuchadnezzar kept the people in Babylon for 70 years. The ship was made in 2069, 70 years after the film was made.
