The Matrix

Rated R 136 minutes 1999

While watching this I turned to my pal and fellow ex-childhood comic geek Petix and said, "This is the movie we dreamed of when we were young." He nodded rabidly before returning his rapt and drooling visage to the screen. Remember when the original Superman movie came out, and the tag line was You'll Believe a Man Can Fly!? That was a load of crap...anyone could see Superman was supported by strings, and the rest of his superpowers were equally fakey. Well, not here: Keanu Reeves, Lawrence Fishburne and some B-listers discover that the world is a computer simulation and that they can reprogram themselves with abilities beyond the ken of normal folk. They dodge bullets, leap across tall buildings and fly through the air and the whole thing looks so cool you'll forget about the plot holes and story-flow problems and just have an eye-candy good time.
