Rating: 8/10 – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Directors: Lana Wachowski, Lilly Wachowski
All it seems that ’99 was the epitome of special effects. It reminds me so much of Black Mirror which the movie has a series of choices like in its latest release a full-length film ‘Bandersnatch’ which is an interactive film that you may feel that you’re also in the movie itself and also it has virtual reality or may I say in a simulation.
The film starts with the story of Thomas Anderson that goes by the alias of Neo is a computer hacker where the story starts that he was on surveillance by Morpheus. He then learns that the world he is living is a simulation like in my first reference of Black Mirror in the first paragraph. Neo realizes that he lives in an A.I powered world.
Direction and script were by Lana and Lily Wachowskis they are sisters, also the Matrix is a great work of art which find inspiration from different kinds of old sci-fi movies and anime which I believe that this film is very collaborative. And the main purpose of the film’s plot is delivered very well.
The cinematography is flawless which coming from ’99 since it is just the introduction of software, cameras and also evolving art perspective that time but the production team of the Matrix well managed to deliver what has to be delivered to the audience which is very pleasing to the eye. In addition, they manage to use all of the resources they needed in this film.
Eye candy visual effects in ’99.
To wind up this review, The Matrix is a revolutionary film that encourages sci-fi or any genre of film they make is to be possible in every aspect that they want. It has left different marks on how people interpret this film in philosophical or even in religious manners.
