Synopsis

Thomas A. Anderson is a man living two lives. By day he is an average computer programmer and by night a hacker known as Neo. Neo has always questioned his reality, but the truth is far beyond his imagination. Neo finds himself targeted by the police when he is contacted by Morpheus, a legendary computer hacker branded a terrorist by the government. Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity has been captured by a race of machines that live off of the humans' body heat and electrochemical energy and who imprison their minds within an artificial reality known as the Matrix. As a rebel against the machines, Neo must return to the Matrix and confront the agents: super-powerful computer programs devoted to snuffing out Neo and the entire human rebellion.

The Matrix Wiki

The Matrix (1999) is the best-known and successful work of the Wachowski's, which has benefited much from the literature of philosophy especially from a descartesian point of view. The film explores significant philosophical and spiritual themes such as free-will, a posteriori knowledge, dilemma of freedom, etc.. Also, there are plenty of philosophical, historical and biblical references. The Matrix was also praised for its spectacular action scenes that are influenced by Japanese anime. The film won four Oscar awards. 

The film set in a dystopian future and can be classified as cyberpunk (See cyberpunk movies list).  William Gibson, a key figure in cyberpunk fiction, called the film "an innocent delight I hadn't felt in a long time," and stated, "Neo is my favorite-ever science-fiction hero, absolutely."
