I love Matrix.
I mean beside all fighting, it has some good philosophy. Of course it is not the meaning of the movie to be philosophical, at least not at the point of trying to discuss some essential problems in the world. But still i like that they highlight some things in an interesting way.
The idea that we(human being) are a virus and that the machines are the cure. Isn't true? I mean we are behaving exactly like that. Destroying the world resources and never learning.

Otherwise what i realy like with this movie is, still, fighting scenes. For those thinking that it is exaggerated, I'am asking: is there a movie without exaggeration? A movie is a fiction so i like it more when it is exaggerated, of course with style :-)

I see that i am not the only one who loves Matrix.
I agree that there is a lot of nice fightings but there are also some philosophical messages.
I like what Morpheus says during the training of Neo:
Neo is learning a lot of things and different martial arts. At one stage, Morpheus wants to see the result. Then they start to fight. Morpheus is faster then Neo. But it is not because of the muscles or the training, because they are in a computer programme. Then he says: “don't try to be fast, just be fast”

"You think that's air you're breathing now?"
says also Morpheus :-)

It's all about this. In that case he tries to tell him that they are in a computer world, the rules can be changed. But isn't the same thing you learn, for exemple in aikido, your biggest enemy is yourself.

We are grown with rules, whether good or bad. We are allways told that we can't do that, we can't do this. Well we have to understand that, yes some things you can't do, but we are able to do whatever we want. Yes we have to follow rules, but most of the time we shoudn't follow if we don't feel that we should. Yes everyone does like others, but we don't have to do like others.
What I mean is that we are in control of our life. You can control things that don't depends on you but you control your life. Just do whatever you want ! :-)

I think that there are some rules that we need to follow. But we create most of the rules. We could easily live without them. For example, when our neighbour buys a new car, we don't need to buy a bigger one, or if our cousin buys a flat tv, we don't need a bigger or more expensive one...

Like Neo is doing in the first part of Matrix Trilogy, i would like to be able to learn 10 martial arts in one day: karate, jiu jutsu, aikido, kendo, judo, kung fu, kick boxing,... It would be nice :-) But that is only a dream: we need to practice during years to have a good level in one martial art. But when we do this, we learn also a lot of other things to become a better person. That is the meaning of the "do" in karatedo, aikido,...

I watched this movie for the fifteenth time :
It easily deserves 20 oscars ;-)

It is very funny when Neo and Trinity go to save Morpheus:
When they enter in the high security building, they are at the security gate. They carry lot of guns, explosives,... the guardian asks: have you got any keys or coins?

Yes, I like this scene too.

Then I like the music while they are fighting in the lobby. Of course the fight is very interesting too, with the slow motion.
