  • Mediocre

    I love the Matrix, this is mostly a waste of time aside from the short Beyond, which was good.
  • The legendary film/movie (to myself).

    As far as I remember correctly, I watched this film between 2002 to 2004. Along with Matrix series, this was very intriguing film to myself. In 2001, London. I stayed in a hotel near Bayswater station and Queensway station. Both have brought me unique experiences to myself. The Queensway Tube station brought me lots of good experiences to myself. Indeed, when I was around 9 or 10 years old, I really enjoyed tube floating in a water tank. My uncle asked me, "Do you really like it?" By the way, after my trip to London, I briefly mentioned about "floating" sensation on an elevator in the Queensway station. The sttion's elevator is uniquely long and deep. I couldn't finish the writing. Later, I watched this Animatrix. I felt so lucky because somebody describe it partly in the film. I have to say the floating sensation was much serious and complex than the film. Imagination can be very helpful to enjoy more than seeing the presented visuals.

    What to having each story being it's own episode? I liked that. You could buy this as a tv series in this store. I guessing that ended last year. So what happened?
  • Disappointing

    By Frank C 66554321.
    Most of the stories do not play out well, or make much sense. But all the animation is done in a interesting, stylistic way. It’s nice to see adult animation, although it feels wasted on the subject.
  • Entertaining!

  • History of The Matrix

    If you are confused about the history and back-story of the Matrix and the war against the machines. This animation would help you a lot. Plus it's very interesting and entertaining. I recommend it. 👍
