The Matrix

THE MATRIX….Since The Matrix Reloaded has just been released and is in the news, can I ask a question about the first film? Basically, I thought it was pretty good ? I didn’t quite get the cultish adoration I heard from some of my friends, but it was a perfectly decent piece of entertainment.

But would it have killed the screenwriters to spend about five more minutes to come up with some better excuse for keeping all those humans around than using them as batteries?
