Who hasn't at least heard of this? One of the biggest sci-fi movies of our times. Now I'll just talk about the first one, which was the one that introduced all these innovative concepts and ideas, thus the best (for me).
The story really makes you wonder if we aren't actually living in the matrix right now. My favorite part is the beginning - how they keep the audience intrigued on what is happening until you discover the secret of the matrix. The effects for the action scenes are great; I mean, who doesn't remember the slow motion bullet time?
I'm trying not to spoil too much here just in case anybody hasn't watched it yet, so I'll just end my post here. It can appeal to a wide audience because of the many genres it approaches: there's action, sci-fi, cyberpunk, some romance, some kind of philosophy and even a few jokes now and then. If you haven't watched it please do. It's that kind of movie that can mean different things to different people.
