Matrix – level 2

03/05/2011 16:26

Today we play for you a part of a film. The name is The Matrix. It was made in 1999. It is a science fiction film with Keanu Reeves. The big part of the film is in virtual reality. The Matrix is a computer system in which people live. The Matrix got four Oscars. We play for you a fight between Neo and Morpheus. We understand that some people don’t like action movies and fights. But English in this video is not very difficult and you can understand it. In this video Neo learns how to fight. Morpheus wants to know if he learnt well. This is the text of the video:

I know Kung fu.

Show me. This is a sparring (training) program, similar to the program reality of the Matrix. It has the same basic rules, rules like gravity. What you must learn is that these rules are no different than the rules of a computer system. Some of them can be bent, others can be broken. Understand? Then hit me if you can.

Good, adaptation, improvisation. But you weakness is not your technique.

Morpheus is fighting Neo.

How did I beat you?

You are too fast.

Do you believe that my being stronger or faster has anything to do with my muscles in this place? Do you think that’s air you are breathing now? Again.

Jesus Christ. He is fast. Take a look at his neurokinetics. They are a way (very much) above normal.

What are you waiting for? You are faster than this. Don’t think you are, know you are.

Come on. Stop trying to hit and hit me.

I don’t believe it.

I know what you are trying to do.
