Absolutely the worst movie.
The best films of this genre always show a path and provide a takeaway for being a better person.
The acting in this movie is really good.
It's easily one of the freshest, sharpest and most enjoyable films of this year.
How bad is this movie? 15 years later I woke up in the middle of the night and the first thing that popped into my mind is just how much the Matrix sequels sucked. The disappointment is permanently ingrained into my subconscious. Wow... so sad.
They really missed trick, it was screaming them in the face and they went with this.
It is a good film, but here's how they could earn a tenth star.
At the end of Reloaded Neo found he could control the sentinels in the real world, they never really explained that one as they focused on Agent Smith and Neo being trapped in the Matrix.What they should have done is reveal the 'real world' to be another Matrix.
They can keep the multiple anomalies thing that the Architect explained, as it was logical thing and would be believable that the past anomalies hadn't discovered thier connection to the machines as Neo had done (as this discovery was only brought to light when he walked on the Earths surface to escape the Nebuchadnezzar before it was destroyed.Having a Matrix within a Matrix would seem to be a logical move by the Architect who said the problem is choice and that he strived for balance.Then Neo can start to push the boundaries of physics to manipulate this new Matrix and be the first to free people from this Matrix into the world beyond (and if you want another trilogy this too could be another Matrix forming an infinite regression.)
The human city of Zion defends itself against the massive invasion of the machines as Neo fights to end the war at another front while also opposing the rogue Agent Smith. The Matrix Revolutions is by no means better than the first or second film i mean the first act is kinda slow but 2nd and especially the 3rd act are very good. The Mr. Smith vs Neo battle was very good sure it had some dumb cgi moments in it but overall a great enjoyable battle that pretty much is the highlight of the movie also the fact that Neo gets taken or probably he is dead nobody will ever know and Trinity died as well but the movie ends in a Happy way doesn't mean that it's a bad sequel i mean just look Terminator 2 for example Arnold dies and the world gets saved i don't compare a good sequel to one of the best movies ever made i'm just saying that every film sometimes deserves a good ending instead of a mass destruction one. Also don't try to compare this to Matrix or even Reloaded all this 3 movies are different on their own way and honestly i think this is the last good film the The Wachowski Brothers ever made but also if you play the game "Path of Neo" you will see that the ending is way different and longer than the one that the film has 8/10.
So we come at last to the third part in a once promising SF series. After endless cod philosophy rot, bloodless Xbox battles in Matrix Reloaded and more pointless dialogue scenes than Phantom Menace (Another film that failed on almost every level).And speaking of battles, let's discuss battle fatigues. It's action movie 101. When you constantly have armies yelling "Raaaahhhhh!!!" at machines while shooting more bullets than John Rambo and John Matrix combined, man does it get old fast. The Wachowskis should've taken lessons from Peter Jackson's Two Towers. In the middle of the melee of Helm's Deep, it cuts to Treebeard with fellow ents, talking to hobbits.The point is, you have to give the audience time to breath or they suffer from ennui. It's exhausting sitting through the last 38 minutes of battles in Zion, battles with sentinels, battles with agent Smith. Sure, it's all very slick and well choreographed, but it's like being beaten over the head with a 2×4 while playing PlayStation. I understand movie goers want a big action spectacle finale, but not this excessive. it goes on for waaaay too long. By the halfway point, I just didn't care anymore. Neither did the rest of the audience.
