"It is impossible to tell you what The Matrix is. You have to see it by yourself." This is what Laurence Fixhburne says. Fishburn plays Morpheus in this sci-fi thriller. But he is not alone.
Keanu Reeves plays Neo, a computer hacker who discovers that the world around him is a computer simulation called Matrix. He learns this from Morpheus (Laurence Fishbourn), who also tells him that the Matrix uses humans as fuel in their quest for total domination. Morpheus thinks Neo is the one who can destroy this artificial world. Neo doubts it, but in his adventures with Morpheus and the group of rebels, he starts to believe it and is ready to destroy the Matrix.
The movie is full of mind-blowing special effects. People can dodge bullets and walk on walls. The actors had to go through four months of hysical training before making the movie. But if you think they didn't enjoy these months, you're wrong. All of them really appreciated the training before the movie. And they also enjoyed the training that went on during the shooting.
Critics usually don't consider Reeves a very good actor. But in "The Matrix", he gives a great performance. He looks confused in the first part of the movie and cool in the second half. Just perfect. Fishburn is calm and thinks clearly: the perfect leader for the rebels. The audience loves them. Carri-anne Moss, who plays Trinity, has no problems in this movie full of male characters.
