* Trinity's helicopter is stricken. Neo picks up a rope. A rope? Is he mad -- expecting to somehow stop a falling chopper? We soon realize that Neo, in a split second, has formulated the only plan that could possibly work, ''counts on Trinity to come up with the same plan'', and successfully executes it. He not only ''acts'' faster than us, he ''thinks'' faster than us. This is Neo's MomentOfAwesome. There can be no doubt: He is The One.

** The chopper crashing into the building is one of the single most definitive examples of VisualEffectsOfAwesome in the movie. The chopper doesn't just crash, it ''molds'' into the building and sends a wave rippling through the side as if the building's made of gelatin. All topped off with a nice big explosion. * Morpheus snapping his handcuffs to majorly heroic CrowningMusicOfAwesome.

* A meta-example...the original Matrix was nominated for several visual and sound effects categories at The Oscars along with The Phantom Menace. AND SWEPT THEM ALL. AGAINST STAR F'N WARS. The cinematic equivalent of David curbstomping Goliath.

Split the different works off to their own pages.
Works in this franchise with their own pages: * Awesome/TheMatrixReloaded * Awesome/TheMatrixRevolutions * Awesome/TheAnimatrix * Awesome/TheMatrixPathOfNeo * Awesome/EnterTheMatrix

[[AC:Anime/TheAnimatrix]] * The dojo sequence in ''Final Flight of the Osiris''. * ''Beyond'' is one of the most stunning animated shorts of all time. The soundtrack alone is incredible in its own right. ** Don't forget the gorgeous animation, which is both extremely unusual and very natural feeling when the characters are in motion. * ''A Detective Story'' should go here for combining two radically different genres, FilmNoir and CyberPunk, smoothly and beautifully. The ending where the detective has his gun pointed at the Agents in pure defiance of their mind control/body hopping abilities counts too. * Although [[NightmareFuel horrifying for some]], both parts of ''The Second Renaissance'' are filled with this, but most noteworthy is the Epic Battle sequence. Rare to see that in animation nowadays. * ''Kid's Story'' for one reason. [[spoiler:Kid manages to wake ''himself'' up from the Matrix, something nobody, not even ''Neo'', thought was possible]]. * ''World Record'' begins with a narration that basically says that some [[BadassNormal people]] find out about the Matrix without any help due to having key senses of intuition, sensitivity, and a questioning nature, and a [[BadassNormal rare few]] find out through "wholly different means." The story is about a runner who breaks the titular record for the 100 meter dash. His medal is revoked, however, due to him testing positive for drugs. Undeterred, he runs another race, and, despite at one point being chased by Agents and ''muscles in his legs blowing out'', he is completely undeterred, keeps running and beats his previous record. The biggest CMOA here is that he managed to break out of the Matrix for a few seconds (only to be plugged back in by the machines). ** The ending might be an even bigger Moment then that. Since his muscles blew out, the final scene is of him being pushed in a wheelchair by a chatty nurse, not just paraplegic but in some kind of catatonic state, and is being monitored by one of the Agents who were watching and chasing him earlier. The Agent also mentions how his memory of the race was wiped and how [[TemptingFate "He will never run again. He will never even walk again for that matter."]] All of a sudden, he mutters the word "Free." before getting up and walking a few steps, much to the shock of the nurse and especially the Agent. He falls back down just before it looks like he's about to leave the ground flying. This becomes even more Awesome when you remember that no other human except [[TheChosenOne Neo]] could possibly fly, and this guy nearly does it after getting crippled. * ''Program'' has Cis pulling a BareHandedBladeBlock, breaking the katana, then ramming it into her foe's throat. [[AC:Other]] * The videogame ''Path of Neo'' was hyped as a playable version of the film trilogy in which certain scenes and plot points were altered for a better videogame experience; the actual plot alterations suit this concept well, even if the actual game design fell rather flat. But the Crowning Moment comes at the end, when the Wachowskis -- as little 1-bit sprites in a Construct program (Larry as the pink one, naturally) -- [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TLJb9NZN0I interrupt the final fight]] to explain that Neo's sacrifice would make for a terrible ending to a videogame, because gamers want a final boss fight, and they will therefore get one as Neo takes on "Mega Smith." The whole thing is a ''very thinly'' veiled TakeThat at everyone who started professing hatred for the movies as they started losing the pretense of being action flicks and became more openly cerebral, with thicker symbolism instead of direct dialogue.

* Neo's most awesome moment came after his resurrection, when he single-handedly fought off Agent Smith, with a look on his face suggesting he was even more bored (or distracted) than usual. It marked how Neo was now operating on a level so far above the Agents, he didn't even have to ''try''.

All right, I think a PM must be in order. Punctuation does NOT go before a right parenthesis unless the entire parenthetical remark is set off as a complete sentence.
* I've just got to give a shout out to my all time favorite character in all three Matrix films. That is Cypher, or Mr. Reagan. '''Especially''' in his speech, "Ignorance is Bliss." He just perfectly illustrates the reason for the red pill/blue pill decision. Some people just aren't ready for the Matrix, and if you act without thinking, it's hella hard to get back in. Just awesome.
