Saw the movie & got the PC game Enter The Matrix last Saturday. The movie kicked mass ass, and the game is a blast. The game actually runs quite well on my 1998 vintage PC. I recommend both the movie and the game!

VROOOOOOOOOMMMM!!!

To compute or not to compute that is the question at hand. Tis nobler to compile in C++ or in TASM.

I think they did a great job with the FX, enough to help make it appear like keanu reeves could act. j/k! *insert laugh track here*

actually, the fights scenes were, for the most part, very believable and intense. a lot more action than the first movie by far. my cousin, who i went with to see it, thought the effects during the fight scenes were sometimes too CG-like. I expected that but it didn't take away from the overall impact of the movie. it's a great continuation of the matrix story.

All I have to say is that this movie really was good. It followed well with the story and rocked just same as the first one did. I played the game a beat it. It's more movie-drivin but rocked nonetheless.

I call this movie (and a few others) hybirds of TRON.

Man, I root for agent Smith!

Without giving away anything, I loved:

"Me too"

Smith is just cooler than Neo or Morpheus.

Go Smith! I can't wait for Revolutions in November!

The FX are realy special, but I think it lost a lot of the punch of the first movie. It had a bunch of diologue about progrms though, which i likened very much to tron, about detetion, rogue programs and that.

The smiths scene was so funny I think it's just a really silly film, but so much fun to watch.
But I was sad that there was more kung foo than guns -- nothing rates as good as the lobby scene in the original.

I can honestly say that it lives up to all the hype its been getting. In other words it is one of the best films i've seen since I saw TRON!!

Everything they did in the film was big; like the shortest fight scene was ten miutes and they were appsolutely (sorry about the spelling) brilliant. Did you know they actually built 3 miles of highway just for the car chase scene at something like $100 MILLIAN DOLLARS.

Rincewind thought about this and then, with an air of finality, started to take off his last sock.
"No half-bricks," he said to no-one in particular. "Have to use sand?"
"You're going to attack them with a sockful of sand?"
"No, I'm going to run away from them. The sockful of sand is for when they follow.

I was wondering where you can see the Animatrix which have been made. I've seen the final flight of the Osiris which was made by the Final Fantasy people and it was great, but I don't know where to see the others?

Speeder Wroteid you know they actually built 3 miles of highway just for the car chase scene at something like $100 MILLIAN DOLLARS.

Not to bust your chops, but according to the special Cadillac/Matrix website:

"A 3-lane highway was constructed at Alameda Point, CA just for the chase scene. The 1.4 mile stretch of new asphalt took three months to build, at a cost of approximately $30 million. After the filming it was destroyed."

It's still astounding.

BTW, you can get The Animatrix on DVD at Amazon.com for about $18 or the Gift Set that also includes the CD Soundtrack for about $23.
