‘The Matrix’ Still Holds Up
And it looks really, really good.
I was nine years old when The Matrix came out. I’m not sure that I saw it in theaters, but I am certain that we had a VHS of this film that I watched often. I remember trying to copy the backbend Neo makes when trying to dodge bullets and trying (and failing) to scale walls long before parkour was a fad.
Though I loved The Matrix when I was younger, I haven’t watched it in probably 15 years. I was thrilled to revisit this iconic sci-fi film but also was worried that it just wouldn’t hold up all these years later.
