The Ultimate Matrix Collection [Blu-ray]
There is no French language on the packaging, and the 7-disc set is packaged in 5 slim cases.
1) The Matrix and digital copy.
2) Matrix Reloaded
3) Matrix Revolutions
5) The Matrix Experience (2 additional discs of special features)
The blu-ray transfer falls just short of reference quality, but it's close. All three parts of the trilogy are currently ranked in Tier 1.75 on the AVS forum. Animatrix is in Tier 2.0.
If you like these movies, this set is not to be missed. While $100 is expensive, I was able to pick this up for $51 in a recent Amazon sale. There may be other sales in the future as the three main movies are all due to be released individually.
Many people argue that the first installment is the only movie worth watching. If you agree, then you can buy that individually on March 31, 2009. I thoroughly enjoy all three movies and see it as one long story. To see The Matrix and not watch the other parts would be like watching The Fellowship of the Ring and skipping The Two Towers and The Return of the King.
Perhaps the novelty of seeing something totally new elevates The Matrix above the other two installments for some people? I see Matrix Reloaded as an excellent sequel with even more action than The Matrix. The conclusion in Matrix Revolutions shows that the lives of an entire community are at stake, rather than those on one ship. It gives us an idea of who these people really are.Read more ›
To get to the point, Jeff claimed that there were new transfers. There are not. The only remastered movie is the original Matrix, and the differences are likely not great.
The central premise that our lives are not 'real' but are steeped in illusion in order that our life force may be fed upon whilst we are enfenced unwittingly like cattle - this is a relevant and powerful message on many levels. It can easily be seen that this is true on a superficial level, with the rampant rise of ultra-aggressive capitalist consumerism, whereby everyone is 'sold a dream' in order to siphon off all income to profit the few, but it goes deeper than that, and can be used to catch a glimpse of some ideas on the true nature of reality. The overlap with material such as Castaneda is remarkable, with stories about the archetypal predator who is invisible, and feeds on us because he has 'given us his mind'. In all, it is a striking metaphor for the human condition.
Of course the great thing is that, even if you don't want to explore things to those levels, taken at surface value as a piece of entertainment, the Matrix is still a fantastic sci-fi/action trilogy, with colourful characters, awesome visuals, and a solid original plotline. Taken as a trilogy, this is a fantastic piece of film-making artwork, and this is the best way to enjoy it. For me, like the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, this amazing piece of entertainment should be enjoyed whole, with the complete epic story all in one package.
This is an incredibly cheap way to get hold of all three films AND many extras, but more importantly, the several mini-film 'featurettes' which flesh out the background story.
With the Matrix series we have an original and most enjoyable concept in the science fiction genre.
The first movie was a total smash(and rightly so) at the box office.It's special effects were quite revolutionary(no pun intended) and many films have copied them and its' style vigorously since then.
The second movie went down from the first one due to a bit of a shaky plot which resulted ultimately(again no pun intended) in a two parter which led into the third and last of the series which although more satisfying than the second still couldn't quite reach the dizzying heights of the first one (it's admittedly hard to top something as spectacular as that-a very hard act to follow indeed!).
This set contains more material than the passing Matrix fan could ever want and enough to satisfy even the most rabid fan.
The set also contains a disc(The Animatrix) which is strictly animated shorts and either give a different perspective on the series and/or fill in gaps in the movie story lines,the latter of which I found to be most helpful in rounding everything out.
In conclusion if you like Sci Fi and want something original,exciting and as entertaining as anything released in quite a while then I highly recommend this series and box set for you.You won't be disappointed.

The truth right in our face. Although the movies are quite dark in luminosity it is a picture of the system that we are living in.Published 2 months ago by Josanne Sinclaire

The movie is as expected, but the packaging was slightly damaged. Not enough to warrent a return, but enough for me to notice. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Amazon Customer
