La cât teasing i s-a făcut mă așteptam ca trailerul pentru The Matrix Resurrections să mă dea pe spate, să îmi setez în calendar data de 22 decembrie, să tai zilele cu X.

Din păcate nici Matrix nu mai e ce-a fost. M-aș fi bucurat să fie un origin story, cum au ajuns mașinile să subjuge oamenii, dar pare să fie aceeași poveste din primul Matrix, reîncălzită un pic.

Nostalgicii vor merge la cinema sau se vor uita pe HBO Max în amintirea vremurilor bune, tinerii de curiozitate, pentru că are multe scene cu bătaie. Totuși, cel puțin din trailer nu văd prea multe teme filozofice, dialoguri profunde, pare un film ușurel, făcut să nu te pună pe gânduri prea mult.

Știu că e o pâine bună de mâncat pe baza nostalgiei acum, de aia vedem o mulțime de reboot-uri, sequel-uri și continuări pentru filme cult, dar mai am o speranță, ca trailerul să fie unul foarte slab și filmul să meargă în cu totul altă direcție, să mă surprindă cumva.

Ca idee, primul Matrix a rupt tot la vremea apariției, în 1999. Efecte speciale noi, nemaivăzute, tehnica de filmare, scenariul, dialogurile, povestea din spate, totul era gândit până la cel mai mic detaliu, vedeai filmul prima dată, a doua oară, a treia oară și tot mai descopereai amănunte noi, aveai momente din alea cu Aha…

Uite cea mai bună recenzie de pe IMDB, cred că îmi fac și eu timp să îl mai văd o dată:

Without a doubt one of the best and most influential movies of all time, the Matrix is the defining science fiction film of the 1990’s and the biggest leap the genre has taken since Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. The Matrix is a ground-breaking motion picture that not only raised the bar for all the science-fiction films to come after it but also redefined the action genre with its thrilling action sequences and revolutionary visual effects.

The film tells the story of Thomas Anderson a computer hacker that in the world of hacking goes by the alias of Neo. When he is contacted by the mysterious outlaw Morpheus and having always questioned his reality, he is awakened to the truth that the world he’s been living in is a simulated reality called the Matrix and that he’s nothing more than a slave in this dystopian world, created and controlled by A.I powered machines.

The direction and script by the Wachowskis is fantastic, as they drew ideas and inspirations from every other great sci-fi and cyberpunk movie and anime before the film, combining it with stunning action and putting it into one picture that has enough style, substance and subtext that everyone ended up giving their own interpretation of the story. The research that went into the preparation of the screenplay is quite extensive but the manner in which it is presented on the big screen is also very impressive. Every character presented on the film, has a well-defined arc and a purpose, and their motivations are clear.

The cinematography is impeccable. It was very innovative in the use of the camera angles and movements, the zooms, the slow-motion captures and the different color palette used to differentiate the Matrix and the real World. The editing is flawless, as it makes sure that every scene is integral to the story and ensures the pace of the film stays ferocious through its entire runtime. Each frame is also packed with so much visual information for the viewer to devour. The visual effects introduced us to the bullet-time effect and their impact can still be felt in today’s movies. The performances are also incredible. Each member of the cast gave their best performances and brought the characters they portray to life, but the one that stands out the most is Hugo Weaving’s disciplined rendition of his character, Agent Smith; a powerful computer program made to search and destroy the human rebellion, in undoubtedly the greatest performance in his career.

In conclusion The Matrix is a masterpiece everyone should see. It is one of the most thought provoking, inventive, pioneering, influential and stylish movies of all time and it’s also full of philosophical and religious allegories waiting for interpretation. Immortal for its contribution to cinema and pop culture, its brilliant combination of inventive visual effects, excellent vision and exquisite action easily makes it one of the best, most influential and most entertaining movies ever made.
