A theatrical blockbuster at the time of its release in 1999, The Matrix proved to be a mind-blowing advancement in cinematic visual effects.
This special effects-driven tale follows Keanu Reeves and Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy-nominee Laurence Fishburne on an explosive futuristic sci-fi adventure about a man who comes to believe that his everyday world is the product of a complex computer-driven digital matrix that feeds on humans. In his dangerous quest to find out the truth, he must figure out who is real and who he can trust. In addition to amazing effects, the stellar cast, including Reeves, Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving and Joe Pantoliano, helped make The Matrix a modern sci-fi classic.
The Matrix 4K UHD release is from a new scan of the original camera negative and is the first remaster of the film in nearly 15 years. The 4K UHD remaster was supervised by the film's director of photography, Bill Pope.
