The series features a cyberpunk story of the technological fall of man, in which a self-aware artificial intelligence has wiped most of humanity from the Earth except for those it enslaves in a virtual reality system as a farmed power source, and the relatively few remaining humans who are free of that system. The A.I. agenda is to destroy all humans who are free, considering them a threat/disease. The first film focuses on a computer hacker named Neo who searches for the truth behind the mysterious force known as the Matrix. He finds his answer with a group of strangers led by the charismatic Morpheus.

8/10

The first film in the trilogy is the best. The effects are amazing and the main character was the perfect role for Keanu Reeves. 

It can get a bit confusing at times, particularly in the second and third film.
