14The Matrix Trilogy

Neo begins to believe in The Matrix

All three of The Matrix movies are coming to Netflix.  The first one redefined the action movie genre, while the other two... also exist.

The Matrix is often cited as being the movie that kicked off the DVD generation. DVD's were a huge jump in quality over VHS tapes, and The

Matrix was the first must-own movies of the time when DVD players started appearing in homes across the world.

It was the movie that popularized the notion of humanity living in a virtual reality (though The Matrix was far from the first story to use that premise), whilst combining kung fu action scenes with elegant gunplay. The Matrix is one of the most influential movies of all time and you should go out of your way to see it if you haven't already.

The Matrix sequels are not as good as the original, though they are still entertaining movies in their own right. The original Matrix movie is the one that deserves your attention, though.

The three Matrix movies will be coming to Netflix on August 1st.
