5/5 Rating - The Matrix - One of my favorites with a very original sci-fi plotline and incredible CGI effects. A must see for sci-fi action movies!
3/5 Rating - The Matrix Reloaded - I thought this was better back in the day but watching again you realize how downhill the plotline went after the first matrix. The CGI and action scores were out of this world keeping this at a 3/5 rating instead of a 2/5 rating.
2/5 Rating - The Matrix Revolutions - The Wachowski Brothers really fell of the Matrix the last movie with a super confusing plotline and repetitious action scenes.

Finally the BD version!

"Been waiting for this BD version for a while. I have the HD-DVD trilogy which was awesome. Before that had the 10 disc DVD version of the Ultimate Matrix Collection which was awesome.
The Blu-ray version is the best of them (except that it doesn't come with a Neo bust like the DVD edition did).
At the time of purchase and of writing this review the product info was wrong on the Blu-ray version. It claims it is a 10 disc set, when it actually is a 6 disc set, 4 Blu-ray's and 2 DVD's. I notified Amazon.com of this, but who knows when they will get around to fixing it.
Also it was said that this is a waste of money in another review because newer DVD players upscale. However this person must have never seen an upscaled movie compared against a Blu-ray or HD-DVD version of the same. There is a BIG BIG difference, I watch a lot of movies "upscaled" but all that does is allow you to watch a DVD movie on a HD TV, it improves the quality a little but not enough to say it is as good as Blu-ray or HD-DVD.
It is worth the extra bucks to buy one of greatest movies in the last 20 years in beautiful Blu-ray."
Great movies missing content to justify ultimate status

"Just received my copy today. Great movies however one feature was supposed to be digital copies of the movies for portable playback. Turns out they only put in the first movie and nothing else. Not a deal breaker, but hardly an ultimate collection without digital copies of the last 2 and Animatrix feature."

"Well I thought I would repeat what others have said in case someone is still having doubts about it. If you are a fan of the Matrix there's no reason not to buy this one.
Video - 4.9/5 The quality is just great, and it looks impressive and far superior to any other format, period. The only reason I'm not giving it 5/5 is because there are some points where you can notice some insignificant details due to the source material, not the transfer itself.
Audio - 5/5 True HD audio is beyond amazing, if you had this on DVD you'll be blown away even if you are listening to it using headphones. And if you have a decent sound system you'll simply toss your DVDs to the recycle bin and never look back faster than you can say "I know Kung Fu".
Aditional Features - 4.5/5 Many people don't like digital copy only for the first movie, and while they have a point you wont really notice the loss once you watch the Blu-ray movies. Besides, that's just icing to the cake, so you'll probably be better off with a portable DVD player/laptop (and your old movies if you didn't toss them to the trash by then)for those cases anyway.
And the rest of the features is very complete with the only "complain" being about the 480p DVD format content. Which anyone who has watched it will probably agree that isn't even a loss considering you'll only watch them once or twice (specially compared to the 100 times you'll watch the BD movies.)
Long story short it's worth it, big time. Just make sure you have a display that makes these movies justice and at least a decent sound system.
You'll thank yourself. d(^^d)"
