More Info IMDb

Hong Kong action coupled with groundbreaking, action-film-redefining special effects combine to make one of the coolest, if not THE COOLEST, action/sci-fi film of all-time. Keanu Reeves was made for this role, Joey Pants is a god and Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith could quite possibly be one of the greatest villains to walk onto the silver screen.

Take the red pill and journey down the rabbit hole to 1999 when special effects were actually used FOR something and action movies were still awesome. See Neo go from everyday computer hacker to demi-god with the help of Morpheus and Trinity as he awakens to find his reality is nothing like it seems. (Greg MacLennan)
