In summary, you can download the first 3 mini-episodes of The Animatrix for free. The back story and animation are very well done and it has gotten many positive reviews. The DVD is set to be released in May. Some people may be more excited for The Matrix 2, but overall The Animatrix is a great addition to the franchise. Critics may not always have the right opinion, so it's best to form your own.

A friend saw it in the previews before Dreamcatcher, and said it was awesome, I'm downloading it now, but I think I'm looking forward to the Matrix 2 much more then the animatrix

I saw the first one before Dreamcatcher also. I thought it was pretty good. I didn't realize that it was animated for the first couple minutes. (That woman was nicely drawn.) :wink:

[offtopic]I thought Dreamcatcher was pretty decent too. All the critics hated it, but that's probably because they don't know how to read. It followed the book very well except for the very end. They did have to trim a lot to get it running in the time slot, compared to the book. I find I enjoy movies so much more when the critics hate it; my expectations are lower so the movies seem better.[/backtotopic]

[offtopicresponse] It does seem the critics are wrong a lot of times, the friend that saw the animatrix does reviews of movies, and I generally disagree with him on how good a movie was...I think you loss a lot in a movie if you watch it to critisize it. I have heard many good things about the woman [end]
