(Keanu Reeves)

The Matrix reaped four Oscars and changed sci-fi cinema – and the special effects that set the tone for the genre – forever. It will be screened tonight (October 9) on M-Net Movies Showcase Dstv Channel 108 at 20h00.

Directed in 1999 by The Wachowskis, The Matrix features Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss. Rating 13V

What is the truth? This is a question that haunts Thomas A Anderson (Keanu Reeves), computer programmer by day, master hacker who goes by the name of Neo, by night. When he is introduced to the mysterious Morpheus, he finds himself in a battle he hadn’t foreseen, on which the fate of humankind may depend.

The Matrix Reloaded (October 16) and The Matrix Revolutions (October 23) will be presented on the same channel at the same time.
