"Pretty, pretty, pretty."
4 stars

A movie like Keanu himself. Looks good until it opens its mouth. In regard to Keanu: I'd still do him. I'd still do the movie, too.

I saw this one on April 22, 1999. I kept reading that it was a uniquely striking work on film. I had to force myself to overlook the presence of the dreaded Keanu in the billing. I figured I had to see it, though, if for no other reason than so I would know what all those people were talking about. I am definitely not a sci-fi enthusiast.

Those are my pre-judgements. Following are my post-judgements:

Special effects: omigod. Waaaaay pretty. Enough to carry the film.

Editing: interesting way to break up scenes. Created a great comic book feel.

Sound effects & sound track: cool. I bet in ten years, we will be saying, "oh that is so 90s," but for now-- cool.
Script: very PG-13, weakest aspect of the film. The rest is so complex, I was disappointed in the simplicity of the dialogue. But, then again, I guess most sci-fi is not known for its sparkling conversations.

Acting: Keanu was the least annoying I have seen him be since The River's Edge. Laurence Fishburne did not do much with the admittedly weak lines given him. Carrie-Anne Moss was about the best one. The rest were adequate, nothing too great.

Story: complex, interesting, dazzling, even if not always 100% chronologically believable. There is one lengthy gunfight scene which I would love to see taken out, except for the fact that the effects are so awesome I can tolerate its uselessness.

A visual and auditory delight. Worth the money even if you don't give a damn what the characters are saying.
