The Ultimate Matrix Collection On Blu Ray
The Ultimate Collection of all the movies and featurettes and additions to the world of The Matrix. All inside this one single Ultimate Collection
What Is The Matrix?
The first Matrix film presented us with a thrilling ride of adventure and war on Earth at a time about a hundred years from now, where machines and mankind had waged war, only to have the machines win and humanity enslaved into bondage. It was an astounding movie achievement on many levels, including artisically, with a wonderful and deep meaning story and some ground breaking achievements for special and visual effects.
But the first film also looked at the personal journeys of several characters that raised questions about the nature of perception and reality as well as asking us about our beliefs of faith, nature and reality and having them tested. All this with the story showing the characters struggling against an electronic 'cold war' of man vs machine with no clear winner to see.
Directed by the Wachowski brothers. With The Ultimate Collection, these two brothers and directors take us on a journey that spans 3 feature films, a feature set of anime inspired back stories, behind the scenes features and much, much more additional material spanning four plus hours. There is not much that won’t appeal to science fiction fans and much that will provide discussion on religion, philosophy and the films themselves for time to come. Every aspect of the movies, featurettes, behind the scenes, all the interveiws and all the specials and additional extras are in this Ultimate Collection.
