Probably not what you're looking for but have you seen the Animatrix?

It's a 2003 American-Japanese anthology film based on The Matrix trilogy produced by The Wachowskis, who wrote and directed the trilogy. The film is a compilation of nine animated short films, including four written by the Wachowskis. It details the backstory of the Matrix universe, including the original war between man and machines which led to the creation of the Matrix.

I'd suggest Shutter Island (similar genre - psychological thriller), Memento (a full-on dramatic thriller) and Inception (nice concept and clever movie) for movies most similar in tone to the Matrix.

And you've also got The Prestige (a great thriller and one of my favourite movies), Now You See Me (different tone, more light-hearted but still clever) and Interstellar (very good science-fiction thriller).

The film Equilibrium takes clear inspiration from The Matrix. Similar look (e.g. lots of leather), grim sci-fi-ness, similar style combat scenes, similar soundtrack tone. Major difference is that machines aren't very involved.
