Almost 20 years since The Matrix screened for the first time, one thing’s clear. 

It holds up.

Even more so, it’s more relevant today than 20 years ago. Just listen to what this schmuck has to say.

So premise wise it holds. Casting wise it’s a match in heaven. My fangs are showing up whenever I see Joe Pantoliano. Special effects still work. Proof that strong concept is timeless. Keanu is this still this Dorian Grey/Peter Pan sad prince in his public life. 

There’s something special about this film. The choices it makes are simply otherworldly good. Getting cheesy alert! Singing out.
