Red Pill… Blue Pill

After a prolonged bout of channel hopping, I found myself re-watching The Matrix on TV this weekend. I remember watching The film at the cinema when it was originally released and since then I’ve probably seen it half a dozen times.

As sci-fi martial arts movies go, it still stands up against more recent films, even if the special effects aren’t quite as cutting edge as they once were. The pseudo-mythological story line and the monosyllabic dialogue aren’t as bad as they became in future sequels either.

It’s interesting to note that, as in many science fiction worlds, everyone uses Nokia phones rather than iPhones or Blackberries. Maybe those European designed handsets are more cinematic than fruit based phones.
