Quick Review

My experience of watching this for the first time was one long "Wow!"-moment of total excitement. Fortunately it still holds up. Keanu Reeves leads this science fiction story about a software engineer who "wakes up" and discovers that the world he lives in is not quite what it seems. Surreal action, crazy fighting and coolness ensues. This built an incredible base for the two sequels, which took a more existential approach.
