THE MATRIX (1999)
“The Matrix” is the best action movie has ever made on my list. When “The Matrix” was released on its time, thiz movie contributes many breakthrough methods for cinema world. The movie is directed by Larry and Andy Wachowski who was under radar all these times. They are only known as small budget film Directors in “Bound” (1996). Later, “The Matrix” has two more back-to-back sequels which are “The Matrix Reloaded” and “The Matrix Revolution” in 2003. You can almost classify the stars in thiz movie as B-Class Actors, if it's not because of Keanu Reeves, but still the outcome is beyond the expectations. Each of the characters like Neo (Keanu Reeves), Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) , even the villain Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) have already become a legendary icon in the industry. One of the strengths of thiz movie is the phenomenal action scenes. The fight scenes are something new and different, which is later followed by other movies. Behind that extraordinary fight scenes are experienced Martial Arts Choreographer Yuen Woo Ping. Woo Ping is the man behind “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (2000), “Kill Bill” (2003),”The Forbidden Kingdom” (2008) and even Jackie Chan’s Kung Fu classic like “Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow” (1978). His experience in a lot of Asian movies makes him effective. The movie definitely exceeds our imagination. As a matter of fact, many people do not understand entirely the story of “The Matrix”, there are still many blank spots to be answered. Eventually, the movie is filled with countless great philosophies inside. It seems like Wachowski Brothers have discovered how to make a brilliant concept for the story by fetching the philosophies from some religions. The essence is not that simple as it looks, actually we will always have something new every time we watch it over and over again. “The Matrix” is a smart movie and will always be one of my favorite movies of all-time!
