Is it possible to reflect video in lightwave. I understand reflecting pictures but like the effects in movies, like the matrix, Video is reflected from a mettalic computer animated image.

yes !!

Place a plane poly facing away from the Camera in front of the reflecting object, (use only 1 sided) map your video to it, and turn on reflections for the object you want it to reflect on.
Or if you want it to change locations for other objects, parent the poly plane to the camera.

The same way you would a still image, just remember to pick "sequence" in the image editor - there's a bunch of other options there to help you mark in and out points etc. - It's all in the manual...
