The Animatrix DVD Review
SRP: £29.98

Picture

Presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen, the image is always first class. Some of the animation using harsh colours and style pushes the transfer near to its limits, but everything always looks stunning without any digital side effects. Colours are well produced with no blooming or saturation problems, even when pushed hard. There are no signs of pixilation or edge enhancement and the print is as clean as a whistle, with no dirt or grain present. A fine collection of animation, which just looks stunning throughout, real demo quality indeed.

Sound

There are plenty excuses for an aggressive sound mix, and that's just what we get here in Dolby Digital 5.1. The split surrounds and LFE channel are used to great effect throughout with some stunning sound design to accompany the visuals. Again this is demo quality and should be played loud!

Extras

The disc is just feature packed with extras, and each is worth watching or listening too. We are given four commentary tracks from the directors, a 22minute documentary covering the links between The Matrix and Japanese animation, Short featurettes covering each animated short, Biographical notes on the creative crews and a look at the new Matrix Video game. All in all this is one fully loaded DVD.
Animatrix,The
Breathtaking imagery, full-on multi channel bliss, and some captivating story lines make this a must have for any matrix fan.
