Most of the people didn’t like The Matrix: Reloaded because of the ending. Well, I defended the film by saying that the ending was just going to set up the incredible third film that would follow in November. I was wrong….terribly wrong. The Matrix: Revolutions sucks. That’s as frank as I can put it in PG-13 terms. I used more powerful adjectives the night I saw the movie. The movie was so bad that I don’t even feel like reviewing it, but the people must know. Do not see this movie, well unless you are a Dragon Ball Z fan, of course.
First of all, where was the plot? Did the Wachowski brothers feel the movie would be better if it lacked a plot and if so, why? None of the questions brought on by the second movie were answered. Why is Neo able to disable sentinels by thinking it? Just because he can, it seems. If the machines created the matrix, shouldn’t they be able to control it? And if not, why not just make a new one? In the first film, according to Morpheus, the EMP was the only weapon against the machines, but in this film most of the fighting is done by human-piloted machines that use machine-guns to blast the hell out of sentinels. In the second movie we learned that getting into the matrix was becoming harder and harder, but Trinity and the gang have no problem getting in and out. Every agent seems to have disappeared, and the matrix is now populated by mostly Smiths.
The whole movie is one big action sequence besides a few scenes. Fans of Dragon Ball Z will appreciate the over-the-top fight scene between Neo and Smith. The only good thing about this movie is… I mean there has to be some redeeming factor for it to get a 2…nope. I give it a two strictly because of the fight scenes and that’s about it. 2 out of 5 is a very generous rating for this movie. It’s sad that such an awesome start for the trilogy was completely destroyed by this huge failure. The only revolution I saw while watching the film was how much it sucked. DO NOT go see this movie.
