Discover the action figures of The Matrix
On the occasion of the release of Matrix Resurrections, this renowned cinematographic license deserves to be brought back to the forefront. This cult movie has marked an entire generation to the point where certain cultural codes attached to the film have remained deeply rooted in our habits.
If, in the past, the ultimate reference to a dystopia was Orwell's 1984, Matrix was at the origin of a completely different form of dystopia, this one being updated to correspond to contemporary technology.
This film, which offers several degrees of reading to whoever watches it, wants to be a cinematographic but also a philosophical revolution. It is not for nothing that the second film of the saga is called Matrix Revolutions. The first opus marked the end of the twentieth century by coming out in 1999, it announced a whole new technological paradigm, that of virtual reality which is beginning to develop in our world.
When, at that time, many were excited about the rise of technology and its omnipresence in our lives, Matrix presented the other side of the coin: the future would not be as idyllic as it seems. By perfecting the idea of a machine revolution even better than it had been done in Terminator, Matrix revealed, through a clever analogy, what humanity would be like at the end of the pervasive technological progress.
Returning to its synopsis, Matrix tells the story of Neo, a hacker who, one day, is visited by a certain Morpheus. Morpheus tells him that the reality in which he lives is in fact a computer program implanted in his brain. His real body is locked in a pod maintained by machines and used to supply them with energy.
The human race as a whole is locked in a virtual reality that they think is real while their life energy is used as energy while they are used as biological batteries that last for decades.
When Morpheus gives Neo the red pill that allows him to get out of the matrix, out of this virtual reality, the hacker discovers a vile world dominated by machines where humans are collected and treated like sleeping cattle. Following this awakening, he fights alongside Morpheus to overthrow the order of machines in place so that humanity regains its freedom.
Today, The Matrix has left such a deep impression that the concept of "Red Pill" refers to the idea of a brutal return to a disturbing reality, which is right in front of our eyes; in other words, a revelation. With Keanu Reeves in the title role and Lawrence Fishburne as Morpheus, Matrix and its quadrilogy will have mixed a philosophical approach to technology with action scenes that are still avant-garde to this day. This justifies its status as a cult saga, which has existed for more than two decades and continues to multiply the fictions inspired by its universe.
You will be able to discover or dive back into the Matrix thanks to the Funko POP Matrix collection presented here. Will you take the red pill or will you be satisfied with a POP Matrix figurine to decorate your living room? The choice is yours. But one doesn't prevent the other.
