The Matrix: Limited Edition (1999)


Reeves is "Neo," a computer hacker who wastes his days at a soul-sucking corporate job so that he may spend nights in his dingy apartment hacking into all sorts of information he shouldn't be privy to. Without warning, he is drawn into a complex plot by a band of futuristic freedom fighters, led by the philosophical Morpheus (Fishburne), who informs Neo that he may be "The One" who can put an end to the Matrix- a scheme which has pulled the wool over the eyes of the human race. You see, life in 1999 is actually a false front put up by higher, octopus-like beings to cover up the fact that it's actually hundreds of years in the future and humankind has been enslaved for their evil purposes. But that's just a surface explanation for this mind-bending, complex yarn from the Wachowski Brothers (BOUND), which combines STAR WARS-like myth making, Hong Kong style kick-n-shoot action, and the latest digital effects to create the left-field hit of 1999.

Easter Eggs...

From the disc's main menu go to the 'Special Features' and there select 'The Dream World'. Apart from the text menu entries you will also see a red pill. Select it and you will be taken to the 'What Is Bullet Time?' documentary. Also in the 'Special Features' section, go to 'Cast & Crew Bios' and there select the Warchowsky Brothers. This will bring up another red pill. Select it and it takes you to a 12-minute documentary called 'What Is Concept?'
Go to the special features area of the DVD and go to the 'Making the Matrix' option and hit enter. When the new screen pops up, select the option 'The Dreamworld' and hit enter. When this screen pops up hit CONTINUE and select the option 'Follow the White Rabbit' - now throughout the film, nine white rabbits will appear in the lower-left-hand corner of the screen.
