    Pretty ridiculous.

  4. sigh says:

    the guy in the top left pic is borat, no?

    • vodka says:

      NO that’s azamat bagatov, the producer who can not enter European union becaus of sex crimes.

      besides the similarities on the last two pictures are really striking:

      one white guy with hair in a suit —a bald and black guy wearing a tank top

      one guy looking to the left — one guy with suit, sunglasses and a pistol also looking to the left

    OH MY GOD, The Matrix features a person talking on a phone! Surely it’s clear to everyone that Mesto Vstrechi pioneered that groundbreaking concept!

  8. Ivan A Humpya says:

    Da Da! Phone in movie is Russian invention, LONG LIVE THE MOTHERLAND! a bear ate my genitals.

  9. tlkh says:

    It seems nobody here realized that it was a joke

  10. funny videos says:

    the movie is called “Mesto Vstrechi Izmenit Nelzya” which translates to “Place of meeting cannot be changed”.

    i dont see how they are the same.

  13. yberlortto says:

    Hay! Shuddup or I gonna sing again! I invent sing, you invent shuddup!

  17. Hanke Graver says:

    The mentioned similarities seem rather accidental.

    It is a well known fact that the matrix movies where influenced by The Ghost in the Shell movie.
    You can see it, if you watch the movie.
    Especially the intro sequence and the last action scene that was copied into the first matrix movie.

    By the way, I do think that the mentioned Russian movie has a way better acting than the matrix.

    • tlkh says:

      You guys take this comparison too seriously. It is absolutely obviously a joke, and all this defence of matrix from non-existent attacks looks very funny.
      PS: This Russian movie is one of the best Russian TV miniseries, with a superb acting.

  18. The Saint says:

    wow!! that morpheus sure looks alot like that russian dude

  19. Karman says:

    As usually..overreaction.

  20. laidback says:

    “Mesto Vstrech Izmenit’ nel’zia” – 1979 year.
    Matrix – 1999 year.

  21. Epsilon says:

    Wow!!!!! Some people are slow to get a humor!

  22. mrpman says:

    they also copied from two movies called mindwarp and darkdrive

  23. aleccos says:

    Russian bloggers can say what they want! The film was based on the writings of Plato -student of Socrates-, named {The cave with the Shadows}! The ancient Greeks knew!!!

    no they are not.

  26. [...] Matrix rips off a Russian movie [EnglishRussia.com] [...]

  27. Shep says:

    Matrix ripped shamelessly (and badly) from William Gibson. If you happen to have read “Neuromancer” or “Mona Lisa Overdrive”, you’ll know what I mean. P.S Some of you lot really don’t seem to have calibrated your sense of humour properly… :-‘(

    It’s sort of a stretch…

    Did those bloggers even see “Mesto”? The two movies have nothing in common. “Mesto” is a post-WWII crime-drama, Matrix is a sci-fi.
