The Matrix is another tech heavy movie that intelligent machines are out to destroy the world. These machines deploy technological bad guys, agents, in a virtual world to do their dirty work. Out of the computer world, the machines are relentlessly searching for a group of rebels who are fighting an uphill battle to save humanity. That’s not all though as the movie also includes some philosophy, a few twists, and some incredible effects, including bullet time.
