This is one of several animated short films that are based on the Wachowskis' "Matrix" movie. The director actually worked on special effects for several very famous films such as "Titanic". However, I have to say neither the characters nor the action made this really look like it belongs to the series except the fight in the first 2-3 minutes maybe. This fight sequence also includes the shot of the Asisn girl of which we only see one eye that was used for the Animatrix cover. This lack of Matrix connection is not necessarily a criticism on these 10 minutes as the animation is fine and the story isn't too bad either. The action didn't do a whole lot for me though, so i wouldn't recommend it. but then again, I am not a great Matrix fan anyway, at least this is a common denominator.
