Check out the fantabulous trailer for their 2014 tentpole, but it wasn’t that long ago that the Wachiowskis came on like a house on fire…or was it? Jeez, next year it’s going to be fifteen years since The Matrix reinvented the sci-fi blockbuster, and they were never able to follow it up with anything decent since.
One of the many great innovations of the original Matrix film was "bullet time," where we saw Keanu Reeves dodging a bullet, complete with reverberations rippling through the air.
The summer of 1999 was quite a time for genre fans. George Lucas had finally returned with Star Wars Episode One, which sadly left a lot of people very disappointed.
The Matrix - written and directed by Larry (now Lana) & Andy Wachowski - hit theaters way back in 1999.
