Matrix

The Matrix

Released: March 31, 1999 (15 Years)

It revolutionized the action film genre for the new millennium and gave dance choreographers a new move to expand their repertoire.

The cast was a who’s who of popular African American actors and actresses at the time (and a few who would blow up even more) and the story of friendship, love, and betrayal was as universal as a Shakespeare play. Even after 15 years, the movie still stands as a great.
