The Matrix Explained | 20th Anniversary Of The Matrix

In honor of the 20th anniversary of The Matrix, let's revisit the groundbreaking sci-fi franchise and make sense out of its mind-bending story. From The Animatrix to The Matrix Revolutions, Dave dives into the series to explain how the Matrix works, and its cinematic impact.

The Matrix is turning 20 years old, and the groundbreaking franchise is still celebrated for its impact on action choreography, effects, and the science-fiction genre as a whole. Its sequels and supplemental story material is notoriously obtuse, which means you would need a lengthy in-depth explanation to make sense of it all. Fortunately, we made one of those. Dave goes through the entire series and its many enigmatic characters, spanning The Animatrix all the way to the conclusion in The Matrix Revolutions.
