Documentary about the making of the hit movie ‘The Matrix’. Features a look at the film’s technical accomplishments, behind-the-scene footage of the stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Ann Moss and Laurence Fishburne, extracts from ‘The Matrix Anime’ and unseen material from the original movie.
The Matrix Revisited is a two-hour documentary that covers each and every aspect of the making of this ground-breaking movie in enough detail to satisfy even the most demanding of fans. There are contributions from all the principal cast and crew, who guide us from the story’s inception in the minds of the Wachowski brothers right through to the preparatory work for the next two instalments. Also on the disc are: a teaser montage of behind-the-scenes footage for the follow-up movies, a section on the newly commissioned Japanimation “Animatrix” features, fight choreographer Yuen Wo Ping’s blocking tapes, a piece about the fans, a breakdown of the bathroom fight and wet-wall sequence, a plug for the Web site and DVD-ROM extras. If that’s not enough, there are even hidden extra “Easter eggs”, including one about the woman in the red dress. Plenty, in fact, to keep fans satisfied until the second instalment arrives in cinemas. —Mark Walker
