Product Description

In the powerful final chapter of The Matrix Trilogy, Neo (Keanu Reeves) took another step forward in the quest for truth that began with his journey into the real world at the outset of The Matrix - but that transformation has left him drained of his power, adrift in a no-man’s-land between the Matrix and the Machine World. While Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) holds vigil of Neo’s comatose body, Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) grapples with the revelation that ‘The One’ in which he has invested a life’s worth of faith is merely another system of control invented by the architects of the Matrix. During the stunning conclusion, the rebels’ long quest for freedom culminates in an explosive battle, as the Machine Army wages devastation on Zion and its citizens mount an aggressive defence …

From Amazon.co.uk

The opening reels of Matrix Revolutions do nothing to dispel the feeling of exhausted disappointment that set in during the second half of The Matrix Reloaded. There's plenty more talky guff combined with the picking-up of hard-to-remember plot threads as Neo (Keanu Reeves) lies in a coma in the "real" world and is stranded on a tube station in a limbo "beyond the Matrix" while his allies do a reprise of the shooting-their-way-past-the-bodyguards bit from the last film (this time, the baddies can walk on the ceiling). A new Oracle (Mary Alice) makes some pronouncements about the end being near and more things happen--including the evil Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) manifesting in reality by possessing a minor character and perfidiously blinding our hero, who wears a becoming ribbon over his wounded eyes and perceives the world in an impressive "flaming truth vision".

What about the action? The equivalent of the last film's freeway chase scene is a huge face-off as the Sentinels (robot squids) finally breach the caverns of Zion, "the last human city", and swarm against a battalion of pilot-manipulated giant robots: here, the effects are seamless and the images astonishing, though the fact that none of the major characters are involved and the whole thing goes on so long as if designed to top any previous robot-on-robot screen carnage means that it becomes monotonously amazing, like watching someone else play a great computer game. After a too-easily-managed major realignment of the enmities, the film--and the series--finally delivers a sign-off sequence that's everything you could want as Neo and Smith get into a kung fu one-on-one in a rain-drenched virtual city, flying as high as Superman and Brainiac in smart suits. It comes too late to save the day and the wrap-up is both banal and incoherent, but at least this single combat is a reward for hardy veterans who've sat through seven hours of build-up. --Kim Newman

On the DVD: when the first Matrix DVD was released, with never-before-seen features such as the "Follow the White Rabbit" option, it set a benchmark against which subsequent discs were judged. But neither sequel has lived up to the original's high standards. The Matrix Revolutions two-disc set is an unexceptional package, with a routine "making of" featurette being the main bonus item. Amid all the usual backslapping guff about how great everyone is and what a great time they've all had, it's possible to glean some nuggets of useful information about the baffling plot--though cast and crew can't repress a note of weariness creeping in when discussing the horribly protracted shooting schedule. The feature on the CG Revolution is the most informative for people who like to know how everything was done, and, in the same vein, there's also a multi-angle breakdown of the Super Burly Brawl. A 3-D timeline gives a handy summary of the story so far, and there's a plug for The Matrix Online game. The anamorphic 2.40:1 picture is, of course, a real treat to look at, even if the movie is mostly shades of dark grey and dark green; soundwise the dynamic range of the Dolby Digital surround is extreme: all conversations are conducted in throaty whispers, while the action sequences will push your speakers to the limit. No DTS option, though. And as with Reloaded, there's no audio commentary either: the Wachowski's policy of not talking about their creation begins to seem like a ploy to avoid answering awkward questions. --Mark Walker

Ok, there i was, sitting in the cinema with my big box of popcorn, extra large coke, oh yes, and my girlfriend who was getting annoyed with my whoops of exctiement as the lights were dimming to start what was promised to be the "Answer to all your questions" and the end of what was an excellent story and concept. My "whoops" quickly stopped. The first 10 minutes said it all for me. Neo stuck in a middle way between the real world and the matrix! this could have been very creative, nope, it was a subway. Hmm, The merovengian was a way of saving neo! "Ooh, a good battle?" nope. The sentenals have reached Zion! A good fight yes, but a loooong battle which was beginning to turn the Matrix into the Terminator. The final battle between Neo and Smith! More like superman and spiderman, come on guys! Whats with all the flying?!?! In the end of the first matrix, neo did all this ultra fast fighting which looked awesome, was there any in the other two? nope. Instead of keeping it fast they slowed it all down! Hmmm slow-mo action, yeah for a turtle. Then we have the icing on the cake, the end, How will it end, i wont give anything away in case you havent seen it yet, but be prepared for a dissapointment. a MAJOR dissapointment. You will be left looking at your telly going "Wha..? Who..? Why...?"
I will still buy this on DVD, as im a sucker but ive got to have all three. But will I watch it as much as i saw the first one?.......Nope.

First of all, take out "The Matrix" and "The Matrix reloaded" and you have a perfectly good movie. However, because of the unexpected sheer brilliance of the first Matrix movie, the third and second respectfully don't live up to expectation... So, if you thoroughly enjoyed the first of the trilogy, i recommend that you stay away from the follow ups.
For me, and many others "The Matrix" was a ground-breaking motion picture setting new standards, the film also captivated my mind into thinking "what if"!? The mystery that is The Matrix and the way you are left wondering when the film draws to a close was the ideal way to finish off the story. However, the Wachowski brothers saw it fit to make a "franchise" out of the Matrix in the form of "The Matrix's reloaded and revolutions"! In my eyes, the film should have been left as it was and allow it to rank as one of the finest and original films in recent history.

Its really a great shame that this film seems to undermine everything that was great about the Matrix. I loved the first two but this really doesn't quite reach the same heights. Anything that you may have expected to happen doesn't, i wanted a rollicking good war ending with the destruction of the machines, not so i'm afraid instead you get a ropey peace with the fact that most of the humans are still enslaved? deeply unsatisfying. The film contains some of the bullet time fighting which was the series trademark, and it is good. The final face-off with smith and neo is also good, but the dull CG war is pure tedium like the star wars episode 2 battle you end up not caring who wins. Return of the king really showed how CG battles can be great as long as you keep focus on the main characters, but Neo and co aren't even involved! I can't believe as well how Trinity just gets offed in a crash, to be honest i think they might have had enough by then. You have to watch it if you enjoyed the other two but i guarantee you'll be dissapointed.

This film seems to elicit strong feelings: no surprise given the excellent set up of the first two. However,as an ending to one of the most innovative trilogies in cinema over the last decade, this is very disappointing. Ignore the fanatics who claim that if you don't like this film you must be too stupid to understand it - quite the reverse. If you understood the first two, then this is a mystifyingly simple way to conclude. From the start, what was an excellent cliffhanger ending to Reloaded is dealt with like an inconvenient plot point in Revolutions. The explanation to Neo's coma introduces a banal new character and is resolved too easily. We then jump from contrived plot point to contrived plot point before Neo resolves the conflict in a ridiculously easy fashion. It all seems to be designed to build to the final fight between Neo and Smith which, while spectacular, is not where the story should end. The story should end with a confrontation with the "machine" intelligence that has been preying on the human race. The Wachowski Brothers seem to have tried to appease fans by somehow elevating a minor, albeit fascinating and compelling, servant of the "machines into the major nemesis of Neo - it simply doesn't work. Smith was a means to an end, not the end.
Why 3 stars? Well, I loved the first two movies and whilst this film is not a worthy sequel, it is worth viewing on its own merits. The effects are outstanding and some of the set piece action will never be equalled. The robot invasion of Zion and the final fight between Smith and Neo are visually stunning and exciting action sequences. Throughout, the action is impressive and the cinematography evokes suitably futuristic imagery throughout.
So, definitely a flawed film and not a worthy conclusion. But don't worry if you didn't get it - you are not stupid it's just not that good
