I'm not big on buying expensive box sets, but this is one I couldn't pass up (granted, it's much cheaper than many of the box sets I've seen). I was a little worried that the quality might not be as good since the first Matrix movie, came out in 1999, before HDTV hit the market, but it really looks as good as any new movie. The special features disk is a DVD, not blu-ray, which is a bit of a disappointment, but not a deal-breaker. All the movies, as well as the Animatrix are blu-ray, with clear images and great color. 35 hours of "bonus footage" is overkill, but it gives you plenty to watch, and you can learn quite a bit about how the movie was made, start to finish, and see how the sets were bult, interviews with the art directors, stunt coordinators, and actors. One more note is that the cover for the box set was attatched with some really weak glue, so it's falling off, leaving a blank, black box underneath. I don't know if it was just my copy, or if that's common. Again, not a deal-breaker, but slightly annoying.
