The Matrix Quotes

The Matrix is a popular movie franchise created by writers-directors the Wachowskis and producer Joel Silver. The series consists of four movies, beginning with global box office sensation The Matrix (1999) and continuing with three sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions (both in 2003) and The Matrix Resurrections (2021). I hope that these quotes from The Matrix will bring back memories to you if you are a fan.

The Matrix movies depicts a dystopian future in which humanity is unknowingly trapped inside a simulated reality, called the Matrix. Created by machines to distract humans while using their bodies as an energy source.

The films focus on the adventures of Neo (Keanu Reeves), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) trying to free humanity from the system while being pursued by its guardians, such as Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving).

The first Matrix movie was a critical and commercial success, winning four Academy Awards. It has been added to the National Film Registry for preservation. The Matrix movies are action packed movies that challenges our understanding of perspective, reality, illusion and other intriguing concepts.

I hope that you will enjoy this collection of the best Matrix quotes.
