The Matrix #1: The Matrix (1999)
Release Date: March 31, 1999
Director: The Wachowskis
Studio: Warner Bros.
The Matrix is essential mind-bending science-fiction film of the ’90s. It takes place in a futuristic dystopia wherein humans have been programmed into a virtual reality known as “the matrix.” A few holdouts await the coming of “the one” -a hero who will end the war between the humans and the machines. The Matrix stars Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving and others.

The Matrix #2: The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
Release Date: May 7, 2003
Director: The Wachowskis
Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures
As a sequel to the brilliant original (The Matrix), The Matrix Reloaded is an entertaining ride if you can simply shut your brain off to the convoluted, jumbled, overblown CGI-infused and mostly confusing, indecipherable plot which relies on the appearance of profundity and depth, but in fact is really just another vapid but occasionally fun action movie.

The Matrix #3: The Matrix Revolutions (2003)
Release Date: November 5, 2003
Director: The Wachowskis
Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures
The Matrix Revolutions is the third and painfully final installment of The Matrix series. In it, Neo is trapped in the Matrix to face one final battle with Agent Smith. The same cast of characters reprise their roles in this film: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving and others.

The Wachowskis also released an animated extended film in 2003 called The Animatrix (which I have yet to see) and one of the Wachowskis is set to release yet another installment entitled The Matrix Resurrections in 2021.
