Ignore the hideous pretensious sequels and watch the original. This is a well done and very entertaining sci-fi/action film that has had a huge influence upon films in general. Too bad the filmmakers quickly allowed the success of this film to go to their head and became over-rated hacks (the two Matrix sequels & Speed racer show exactly how over rated they have become).
It's interesting to note that at the time of it's release the filmmakers made a huge deal of their "Bullet Time" effect, but Blade had already done the exact same thing.
