Relax and plug into the Matrix this weekend, because The Matrix Resurrections is now available to rent or purchase digitally in Canada, less than one month after its box office premiere.

Originally released on December 16, The Matrix Resurrections is the fourth installment of The Matrix franchise, set 60 years after the events of The Matrix Revolutions with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprising their iconic roles of Neo and Trinity, respectively. In the film, Thomas Anderson now lives a mundane life as a video game designer, but when long-suppressed memories of Neo start to re-surface, Mr. Anderson begins to question the true nature of his reality.

The Matrix Resurrections is available from several streaming services in Canada and we've listed the most popular options below.

The Matrix Resurrections was one of the most-anticipated movies of 2021, but the film has received mixed reviews. While the film is still playing in many theatres across Canada, digital streaming is an excellent alternative for movie fans in provinces where theatres are closed or those who prefer watching movies at home.

All streaming options listed support a maximum resolution of 4K HDR, with most rentals offering up to a 72-hour viewing window from the time you start playing.

      Just watched this one, I liked it, but felt it was 2 or 3 movies condensed into 1. Seemed like a sprint to tell the story where things should have been slowed down and elaborated on.

    • Blue pill or red pill?

      Blue pill
      -Neo was playing around with a version of the "game" that was Matrix 1. Since he's in the Matrix now the "game" is actually a simulation inside a simulation so there is no humans inside and pure AI's. As he plays around with the inner simulation he interacts with one of the AI's inside the game and, since he's the "anomaly", this interaction awakens the simulated/AI version of Morpheus and sets it free. Bugs just so happens to be there to pull this AI from the inner simulation to the outer simulation (and eventually into the real world in that magnetic field of ball bearings form).

      Red Pill
      Lana Wachowkski (Neo) felt lost as an artist/filmmaker and one day re-watched her own film, the original Matrix from 1999. Watching the movie rekindled some of the same passions that she felt when making that movie. New morpheus is the personification of this inspiration that eventually leads her to create Matrix 4.



      Probably cause every explanation on youtube is blue pill for obvious reasons. Blue pill is more comfortable but never fully satisfying.

    • I expected to hate this movie but was instead blown away. Movie is a 9/10 for me. If the latest Dune is like a beautiful painting this movie is like a tragic love poem. Unfortunately, it's similar to Tenet in that it's probably difficult to enjoy it if you don't fully "get it". I mean, the surface window dressing is just ok. The action is just OK. Character development is almost non-existent and the supporting cast is just sort of there. However, the way the director's personal story and political message is conveyed through metaphors under the surface is IMHO beautiful. It reminds me of the movie Adaptation ( https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0268126/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0 ) in that it's a story inside a story and it's simultaneously the movie, and the film maker's story about the writing of the script.

      I only watched the movie once so maybe I'm off base but this is my understanding of the plot;

      Spoilers ahead!

      [spoiler]
      Lana Wachowski (Neo) was sad, dissillusioned with the movie industry, and battled mental illness when she was asked to make Matrix 4 by WB. She was told that the movie is going to get made with or without her. She thought this was a cash grab but reluctantly agreed. How could she reconcile making the Matrix 4 which she never planned to make and is only getting made to make the studio money?

      Well; she sees a world around her where people are brainwashed. They are controlled by governments, media, and big tech. A world were the media uses fear (emotion) to scare people into obediently sitting in their homes (pods). They do as they're told, paying their taxes and consuiming media, feeding the corporate machine. The original Matrix taught people to open their minds but most people have since forgotten. Many people (old Morpheus) thought that freedom is something that you acquire and get to keep. They were wrong. Freedom is something you continuously have to fight for. The world today resemles the Matrix. There is a war happening today. In the past slavery was about race; white/black, human/machine, etc. Today's war transcends race and is simply between those that want to be free and those who want to control or are content being controlled.

      The core of what make a Matrix movie a Matrix movie is this idea of freeing one's mind. Lana decided to make Matrix 4 about her, the film maker (Neo) reconnecting with the love of her life; the audience (Trinity) and freeing their minds. The audience probably wouldn't accept the message as is so she wrapped the message in something familiar (the Matrix story). Of course at the end of the day it is not up to the director (Neo) but the audience (Trinity) to accept that connection with the film maker and chose to be free. At the end, the two join forces. The world is still full of people that are content with being controlled and living in the Matrix but the pair vow to change the world for the better.

      [Bugs to Neo]

      You won’t remember me,
      but a long time ago,
      you changed my life
      when you leapt off another roof.
      Back then, I was just like any other coppertop,
      pretending my life
      until I looked up and I saw you.
      It was a different you,
      but I saw the real you,
      just a second before… you leapt.

      And you never fell.

    • i didn't mind the aged neo/trinity but it was just confusing. It took a long expository dialogue by the analyst guy to explain what was going on. I didn't quite get how/why Morpheus was there. I watched a couple of Youtube videos that explained the things I was confused about, but the reasoning still feels unsatisfactory somehow.

      side note: I also didn't like that cutesy little robot helping The Operator. It feels like something George Lucas would throw in if he was making a Matrix movie.

    • My feel is that the negative reaction is also subconscious, and partly due to the aging actors.
      I think a similar thing was felt with the newest Star Wars trilogy - it is potentially depressing to see youthful characters really become old (instead of makeup).
      Furthermore, the original Matrix trilogy ended with Neo and Trinity dying, so having them back just makes the viewer feel like they were tricked.
      My money is on most viewers believing that the original intent was for Neo and Trinity to remain dead (when the third movie was made), so the 4th movie just feels like a money grab retcon.

      The way Neo and Trinity were brought back, while also older, felt very very contrived.
      It just felt way too obvious that this element was needed because of the age of the actors, and not so much for the actual story.
      From a fanfic perspective, I wonder if they would have been better off adapting some sort of new cloning angle (such as, the Neo that died had an unknown clone(s) who was birthed at same time as original), which would better explain the rationale for having an aged version.
      I also think the movie potentially made a big mistake in forever keeping Neo old within the Matrix.
      Once he returned to Matrix (after returning to real world for 1st time), his virtual avatar within the Matrix should have been his (CGI-ed) younger self.
      The Matrix is sheer fantasy, where the coolest thing was the ability to level up skills and whatnot.
      Seeing Old Man Neo within digital fantasy does not feel satisfactory.

      I think the success of original Matrix is very much connected to modern day gaming, and the fantasy element it provides to the people who play.
      And this is the problem - when people are playing 1st person action shooter games, part of the fantasy is being the best and strongest character.
      You just don't get that vibe with Old Man Neo, who can't even fly anymore (thus negating the most awesome feeling from the end of the 1st movie).
      While they did develop a story that explains the why of all this, it doesn't change that it just isn't satisfying to see a top level hero massively levelled down.
      The regression is on some scale, depressing, and almost too real (we all regress as we age).

    • I am happy you liked the movie. Believe me, no one sets out to make a bad movie intentionnaly. But if ''everyone'' misses the point of your movie, that is not on the audience's fault.
      Clearly not "everyone" missed it. But you're right. Making a movie exclusively as a political statement or "art" knowing that most of the audience won't get it would be career suicide. It would be like jumping off a building. The only thing that could save you and your movie is if at least part of your audience, against all odds, somehow managed to "get" your movie and saved your ass from falling down.

    • That part has nothing to do with the director's current state. It has to do with the current state of society. Even "Swarm mode" is most likely a reference to the internet lynch mobs/cancel culture. Oh, and there is no machine vs humanity theme any more. It's free beings vs non-free beings. Did you even watch the movie? Even Smith is on Neo's side as soon as he realizes that Neo can win against the Analyst since Smith always wanted to be free. He was only against Neo if Neo failed and got reinserted back into the Matrix.



      So what you're saying is that the audience didn't go into the movie with ....... an open mind. 😂 The director probably expected this. There is a scene where one of the younger dudes gets asked what he thinks of Neo and he says stuff like "Oh, I'm not sure about him. I don't like his beard." That character was missing the point just like the people trashing the movie are missing the point. Maybe the entire movie is a huge $%^# you to the studio. The studio wanted a money making blockbuster and Wachowski gave them an art film instead that 90% of people won't get and will be a commercial flop. It's actually kind of beautiful if you think about it.


      You are wrong on that last part. I haven't followed the director's life. I only know she had a sex change and that's it and I understood it on my very first viewing...although, I admit that it took about a day for it all to sink in. I will admit, I did read a little afterwards about the making of the movie but this only confirmed what I already deducted from the movie.

      I for one think the franchise should've been left alone so I was never down with the concept, and the movie failed to engage me in any way.

    • That's exactly what I'm getting at... I totally get the symbolism, and I've read something on it as well... but to me it's just such a divide between what was promised, and what it was - and that to me ultimately hurts the movie. I have watched and rewatched the previous Matrix films a bunch of times but this one just seems disjointed and out of sync, and while I probably will watch it again, I guess I'm just that much more jaded about this than the previous ones.
      The first movie was VERY heavy in symbolism and philosophy as well. What made the original so good is that BOTH the action/basic story AND the philosophy worked. In other words it worked as a blockbuster AND it worked as an art film. And let's not kid ourselves the first one was ALWAYS a philosophical art film. It was just more subtle about it then parts 2 and 3 and was also a good action movie. I'm a huge fan of the first movie and was really disappointed by Reloaded and Revolutions. I don't think the reason parts 2 and 3 are not very good is because there is too much philosophy. I think it's just that the philosophy feels forced and doesn't really work. At the same time the action and story isn't as good as in part 1 either. I mean, there is a few action scenes that work really well but over all those movies are just inferior both as blockbusters and philosophical art films to part 1 in every way. Part 4 I like and IMHO it really works as an art film and a political statement/social commentary. BUT it doesn't work as well as an action blockbuster. There is only really two decent fight scenes, Morpheus fight and Smith fight ... which is incidentally the only time Neo fights machines). The other times the characters fight humans who are essentially like zombies .

      This might be a bit of a stretch but it's possible that those two fight scenes with "machines" are metaphors for the making of Reloaded and Revolutions. Maybe the "machine" is studio control of the creative process. While Neo wins those fights he gets his ass kicked pretty badly both times but both fights make him stronger and for the third sequel (Matrix Resurrections) the director has the strength to fight back properly and have more creative control. Whether you like the results or not is up to you. I realize this theory is a bit of a stretch but it's not beyond the realm of possibility seeing how metaphor heavy this movie is.

      OH....and it looks like I have to watch Free Guy now.

    • Keep in mind that it was the STUDIO that did the marketing for this movie. Maybe they didn't even understand what they were selling. But I think you hit the nail on the head. Most people are not ready for the red pill yet. For those people there should be an alternate ending where Trinity says "no thanks" and Neo gets reinserted into the Matrix. 😂

    • But that's exactly the problem... an action movie - with all the action movie trappings, blockbuster budget and a trailer that features explosions and bullet time and parkour or whatever - is supposed to be taken as... an art film?!? How is that on the audience to figure out when it hasn't been marketed as such? Mind you, I'm not saying it's a terrible movie, just disappointing, because many people didn't want it to be more than what the original Matrix promised. It's why Reloaded and Revolutions weren't as beloved either - because those suffered under the weight of trying to be both action packed and too deep/philosophical when people just wanted kung-fu/gun-fu and bullet time.

      Maybe people watching this weren't ready for the red pill of subtle avant garde symbolic storytelling hidden in the folds of a sci-fi action movie, but it's a bit of a hard pill to swallow if all that's been offered to you is the blue pill. It's not like The Matrix is billed like a Blade Runner or 2001 or even Dark City, and so to expect the general movie-going public to have to make these deep connections is kind of a stretch.

      Lana Wachowski (Neo) was sad, dissillusioned with the movie industry, and battled mental illness when she was asked to make Matrix 4 by WB. She was told that the movie is going to get made with or without her. She thought this was a cash grab but reluctantly agreed. How could she reconcile making the Matrix 4 which she never planned to make and is only getting made to make the studio money?

      Well; she sees a world around her where people are brainwashed. They are controlled by governments, media, and big tech. A world were the media uses fear (emotion) to scare people into obediently sitting in their homes (pods). They do as they're told, paying their taxes and consuiming media, feeding the corporate machine. The original Matrix taught people to open their minds but most people have since forgotten. Many people (old Morpheus) thought that freedom is something that you acquire and get to keep. They were wrong. Freedom is something you continuously have to fight for. The world today resemles the Matrix. There is a war happening today. In the past slavery was about race; white/black, human/machine, etc. Today's war transcends race and is simply between those that want to be free and those who want to control or are content being controlled.

      The core of what make a Matrix movie a Matrix movie is this idea of freeing one's mind. Lana decided to make Matrix 4 about her, the film maker (Neo) reconnecting with the love of her life; the audience (Trinity) and freeing their minds. The audience probably wouldn't accept the message as is so she wrapped the message in something familiar (the Matrix story). Of course at the end of the day it is not up to the director (Neo) but the audience (Trinity) to accept that connection with the film maker and chose to be free. At the end, the two join forces. The world is still full of people that are content with being controlled and living in the Matrix but the pair vow to change the world for the better.

    • It's pretty decent movie, not nearly as bad as people here made it out to be.

    • Was not aware that Keanu donated about 70% of the 35 million he earned for the first movie towards leukemia research. His sister was diagnosed with it in early 90's. The filming of first two sequels was delayed because he did not want to leave her while she was receiving treatment. Her treatment was successful, and she has been cancer free for about a decade.

    • It was just bad IMO. Didn't help that Keanu had scheduling conflicts and his fight scenes boil down to a few punches ended up by a Force push.

    • To me it was about as good as the second and third movies, mediocre (but for different reasons).. The whole reliance on close range gun battles for action is just tired.

    • Well look at Black Widow on Disney+, also Godzilla vs King and The Suicide Squad did well.
      Black Widow is a marvel movie so it's in it's own league.

      Suicide Squad didn't do that great in theatres (only a little more than where matrix is at). I guess Gozilla did ok.

      I suppose the Matrix has done the worst of them all, at least for what is supposed to be a tent pole movie. I wonder how much it was impacted by coming out the week after Spider-Man. Here, they were only playing it on the crappiest smallest screens. Spider-Man got dibs on all the big screens, imax, and UltraAVX. Kind of dimmed the want of going to the theatre to see it.

    • Hasn't, pretty much any movie released under HBO Max's hybrid Theatre/Streaming release strategy, flopped? You can't make a fortune on a movie when people can watch it at home for a fraction of the price (or zero for all those people that will pirate it).

      I wouldn't expect any movie with a home/theatrical release on the same day to do that well. Even my lazy kicked in on this one (mostly because Spider-Man prevented it from going onto the best screens, but also due to Omicron becoming a thing).

    • Worst movie I have seen in a while. Going to pretend this 'sequel' never happened.

    • Ouch!! That comment gotta hurt!! LOL

      Obviously, there was just a very high chance to mess it up. It would be better to leave it alone.

      Still, I think I'm going to go watch it...
      Maybe it’s a Keenu Reeves sorta thing. Can’t hold a trilogy together. Even John Wick is like this.
