To tell the truth the first time I saw the film I was enamored by the effects. Was this review helpful? The fight scenes sound effects, such as the whipping sounds of punches were created using thin metal rods and recording them, then editing the sounds.

And sure, three minutes of post-movie deliberation and all this state-of-the-art cyberdevilry is reduced to the purest gobbledygook.

The photo-realistic surroundings generated by this method were incorporated into the bullet time scene, [56] and linear interpolation filled in any gaps of the still images to produce a fluent dynamic motion; [57] the computer-generated "lead in" and "lead out" slides were filled in between frames in sequence to get an illusion of orbiting the scene.

The first movie The Wachowskis directed, Bound, then became a critical success. Our technique was significantly different because we built it to move around objects that were themselves in motion, and we were also able to create slow-motion events that 'virtual cameras' could move around — rather than the static action in Gondry's music videos with limited camera moves.

Hogwash, perhaps, but it grants The Matrix a measure of analysis that is hard to deny. Quite deliberately, French philosopher Jean Baudrillard's sizzling page-turner Simulacra And Simulation can be seen lying open at the "On Nihilism" chapter in Neo's apartment.

It grants the action including some killer kung fu which Reeves and crew spent months perfecting liberty to take on surreal visual highs. Reeves trained hard and even requested training on days off. The visual effect of the helicopters rotating blades was effected by using strobe lighting.

To prepare for the wire futhe actors had to train hard for several months. Without spoiling the film I think I can mention a few of the more obvious elements. The scene was shot successfully a few days later, with Reeves using only three takes.

Gloria Foster appears in a relatively small role that will have greater significance in the following films and she does a very good job. Very clear and well defined. However, the surgery still made him unable to kick for two out of four months of training.

It also led to the development of "Universal Capture", a process which samples and stores facial details and expressions at high resolution.The Matrix is the best action sci-fi films that Keanu Reeves made in the 90's.
