''The Matrix'' is a multimedia franchise created by the Wachowski Sisters (credited at the time of the films' release as the Wachowski Brothers--both siblings have since came out as transgerder) which primarily revolves around a trilogy of sci-fi action movies starring Creator/KeanuReeves as TheHero, Creator/LaurenceFishburne as [[MagicalNegro his mentor]], Creator/CarrieAnneMoss as his ActionGirl LoveInterest, and Creator/HugoWeaving as the BigBad. The first film brilliantly used the radical visual effect of BulletTime and became one of the most influential ([[FollowTheLeader and oft-copied]]) sci-fi films since ''Franchise/StarWars'', and at least at the time, was viewed as one of the most culturally important films since then, as well.

Added DiffLines:

* DefectorFromParadise: [[UnreliableNarrator According to Agent Smith]], the world is stalled at a "realistic" late 20th/early 21st Century civilization because humans rejected the virtual paradise that had been created for them in the first iteration of the system.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseMartialArts: Two of the styles listed on Neo's training are jiu-jitsu and savate, but his fight scenes through the franchise feature virtually no recognizable technique or stance from those two disciplines (but, amusingly enough, they do feature moves from martial arts which were ''not'' listed).

'''Architect''': You will find the answers to those questions by purchasing the ''Enter The Matrix'' game, available for Windows, Playstation2, Xbox, and Gamecube. ''Enter the Matrix'' features awesome gunplay and spectacular martial arts that bend the rules of the Matrix. This game isnít just set in the Matrix universeĖitís an integral part of the experience, with a story that weaves in and out of ''The Matrix Reloaded''. ''Enter the Matrix'' is the story behind the story.

* ThisWasHisTrueForm: Agents are capable of taking over bystanders' bodies. If they should be killed, the program leaves and the innocent most recent host is unmistakably dead. There are no other bodies, but all their other hosts are presumably very dead as well, or they just find themselves someplace strange with no memory of how they got there.

** The whole "using humans as a power source" idea. In reality, it would be an enormously terrible idea to use ANY living thing as a power source, for a variety of reasons, listed below. Rumour has it that the original idea was to have [[WetwareCPU the humans being used as processors in an immense computing array]], [[ExecutiveMeddling but somebody thought that]] [[ViewersAreMorons this idea was too complex for most moviegoers to grasp]], so they changed to Duracell batteries.

* ForcedFriendlyFire:
** In the opening scene of ''Film/TheMatrix'' several police officers try to arrest Trinity and she attacks them. During the fight she grabs one of them and forces him to use his gun to shoot another officer.
** Another example of the "cooperative shooting" variant is in ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded''. While Morpheus and the albino ghost twin are fighting over a gun during the freeway chase, they cooperate to shoot at the Agent who has just torn off the roof of the car they're in.
