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.
The end of Revolutions is hugely and prominently ambiguous. There's no evidence of what "finally" happens to Neo beyond basically a stage direction saying "Neo Exits", and the Architect's final words are riddled with inconsistencies. The rest of the film is much more of a stylistic mess in places than even Reloaded (which I like quite a lot). By way of example, when Revolutions is over, you'll begin to realise that there was absolutely no point whatsoever to the opening half-hour of the film - it's a plot line which just doesn't go anywhere and was thus no more or less than "filler" material to pad the script. The astute viewer can also expect a couple of scenes which seem oddly truncated (including a whopper where Niobe & co. appear more or less out of nowhere)- but never mind, the missing bits of the film are in the video game "Enter The Matrix" - which you also need to buy seperately. How predictable.
With the massively-multiplayer Matrix on-line world coming out soon (ooh, how "ironic", eh ? A persistent role-playing world existing inside computers !!!!), this is one franchise which will run and run.Read more ›
