One of the most successful films of all time, winner of four Academy Awards - Best Visual Effects, Best Film Editing, Best Sound, Best Sound Effects Editing - 'The Matrix' has proven to be nothing short of a phenomenon. The tale of Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves), a computer hacker forced to confront his special destiny in the salvation of mankind, challenged our perceptions of reality and expanded our expectations of what a movie could be.
