The 'Ultimate Matrix Collection' is actually rather less than ultimate, since it does not include the Matrix philosophy books, and other add-ons. However, what this bumper DVD collection does include, is:

The Matrix

This is the film which started it all. The original Matrix, with Neo, Trinity and Morpheus out to save the worlds, both the dreamworld of the virtual reality control system known as the Matrix, and the desert of the real world, with Zion as the last human city.This is the film that re-introduced VR to popular culture, overshadowing other releases such as The Thirteenth Floor, which came out the same year.

The Animatrix

The Animatrix is a collection of nine short animations, a mix of CG and hand drawn animation, starting with this one, and moving through eight others, each with a unique point of view. Some are deeply philosophical , some wax poetic. All are filled with information on VR, on what it could and can quite easily be, beyond the matrix series itself.


The second of the two films, this one picks up right after the events of Final Flight of the Osiris in the Animatrix, and chronicles the evolving story of the structure of the Matrix, Neo's purpose, and the fight for the very survival of Zion itself.

Matrix Revolutions

The third and final main film of the Matrix, Revolutions, is essentially the second part of the second film, wrapping up the story of the invasion of Zion, the invasion inside the Matrix by what used to be agent Smith, now a self-replicating virus, and the treaty between Neo and the machine God.
