The Matrix

 (1999)

The Matrix Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this must-own Blu-ray release

In the near future, a computer hacker named Neo discovers that all life on Earth may be nothing more than an elaborate facade created by a malevolent cyber-intelligence, for the purpose of placating us while our life essence is "farmed" to fuel the Matrix's campaign of domination in the "real" world. He joins like-minded Rebel warriors Morpheus and Trinity in their struggle to overthrow the Matrix.

For more about The Matrix and the The Matrix Blu-ray release, see the The Matrix Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Directors: Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski
Writers: Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski
Starring: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, Gloria Foster, Joe Pantoliano

The Matrix Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The digibook release includes exactly the same 1080p transfer and 2.40:1 picture using the VC-1 codec as in The Ultimate Matrix Collection. The most immediately noticeable feature of the video is the noirish feel with deep, inky blacks. Highly stylized, The Matrix shows a palette somewhat muted of the primary colors, but weighted toward green in the Matrix world and toward blue in the real world. Cinematographer Bill Pope strikes a great balance between composition and style. The excessive CGI effects greatly add to the action eye-candy, but they also hold back the videophile merits of the picture a bit. By manipulating the colors and adding post-produced content, the video dynamics are slightly squashed and that--more than any other reason--holds back the picture from the highest definition reference quality Blu-rays. Still, the drab tones, solid detail, vibrant textures and deep blacks are nothing to sneeze at. Watch the scene after the truth of the Matrix is revealed to Neo, and Morpheus' ship goes to find his body in the sea of human vats. The level of detail and depth is thoroughly convincing with good shadow detail and no sign of digital anomalies. Even the rare red lights and blue-tinted lightning that play in the scene are rendered with excellent clarity and vibrance.


The Matrix Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Even on DVD with lossy Dolby Digital, The Matrix was considered demo material for evaluating HT systems. Now you can chuck that DVD out the window to make room for the new reference demo sound. The Blu-ray version fully pays off the source material and shows why The Matrix won Academy Awards for best sound and best sound effects editing in 1999. The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track has good treble extension, midrange detail and bass slam. Especially bass slam. The squeals of delight that left my mouth during the more bombastic scenes I would be embarrassed to repeat, but the sound attack was that good.

Watch the scene where Neo and Trinity storm the police station building to rescue Morpheus and engage in the lobby shootout. The sound of automatic weapon fire and exploding bits of wall and structural columns achieves a level of definition, speed, clarity and outright articulation rarely heard. The more you crank it, the better it sounds. The surround engineering is equally involving, with small arms fire emanating from the rear and front speakers, revealing good spacial separation. Every spent shell drops to the floor with a delicate, palpable ringing from the tweeters with a crispness and clarity that is conveys presence and realism, even in the midst of the midrange and bass. And after the heavy attack of the weapons fire, the scene closes on a light note, as Neo and Trinity leave the area with a blasted piece of a column clanking to the floor, perfectly represented in the treble. Classic.

The Matrix has never sounded better and will live on as the ultimate demo material for home theater enthusiasts. Mostly the bass attack is what does it. The helicopter crashing into the side of the building is an HT sound enthusiast's delight. Just be sure your sub isn't turned up too high or you will rock the neighborhood. Other demo-worthy scenes come during the many "Bullet Time" sequences, which show the emphasis on sound design. As the action stops and the camera pans around the actors, aural imaging spins in relation to the camera throughout the soundstage. It was an amazing effect in the theater and on DVD, but the Blu-ray performance is the best of all. The Matrix was made for lossless audio and this Blu-ray presentation is flawless, powerful and amazing.
