From the manufacturer
It took a great deal of vision, foresight and guts to entrust the reins of a huge studio action film to a relatively young and unknown writing/directing team like the Wachowski brothers. But like the prophesying Oracle in his own film, producer Joel Silver knew that The Matrix was something truly special. 'I like to think The Matrix will redefine the action genre — it really is very spectacular.'
The Matrix Trilogy
The Matrix was sold to audiences worldwide as a puzzle: WHAT IS THE MATRIX? Like the film’s bemused protagonist, Neo, people were invited to see for themselves.
What they saw was a fascinating pastiche of familiar but often-separate genres and milieus.
Writers/directors Larry and Andy Wachowski had merged comic book sensibility with classic mythology, kung-fu with cyberpunk and Nietzsche-brand nihilism with Judeo-Christian symbolism; a most unlikely blend of pop culture and pop philosophy that satisfied one’s base craving for action and excitement while also stirring one’s intellect.

Where this set really shines is the viewing experience. These movies are very dark with splashes of color occasionally, so the Dolby Vision HDR looks fantastic on my LG OLED TV. Sure, there’s not a huge leap in only sharpness from a good upconverting 4K player/TV setup and standard Blu-ray, but you’ll see a big step up of you have an HDR capable TV. I don’t add any artificial sharpening or processing to any discs though, since that makes the image look fake/overprocessed in my opinion.
The sound is also excellent, with Dolby Atmos available, but annoyingly not the default sound option - so be sure to select it from the title menu. If you have an Atmos capable system, you’ll be rewarded with a soundtrack that indeed is immersive with excellent usage of the overhead and surround channels. On a non-Atmos system you may not notice much of a difference. I’m using the LG SK9Y Atmos soundbar plus the optional surround speakers and it sounds great. I’m sure a multi component Atmos system would sound even better.
Final verdict: if you have a system capable of Dolby Vision HDR and Atmos sound, then I consider this a nice step up in picture/sound quality over a standard Blu-ray.
I was suprised how well everything held up and you can tell the 4k transfer was done with the proper care. Buy it
