Oft-copied but never bettered, the Wachowski’s’ Oscar-winning sci-fi actioner is a modern classic best seen on the big screen.

When hacker Thomas “Neo” Anderson (Keanu Reeves) discovers that he is in an elaborate simulated reality known as The Matrix, Neo joins forces with legendary hacker Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) to destroy the illusion enslaving humanity - and for that he’ll need to learn kung-fu, and he'll need guns, lots of guns.
