Product Description

The first of two sequels to the 1999 blockbuster. Keanu Reeves returns as Neo, joined by Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) to continue their fight against the Machine Army - wearing their by now familiar long black overcoats and dark glasses. Zion, the last human city on Earth becomes the battleground as Neo discovers new super-human abilities, although things become complicated because he and Trinity have embarked on a serious romance. The film was shot in tandem with the third instalment 'The Matrix Revolutions'.

From Amazon.co.uk

The Matrix Reloaded delivers added amounts of everything that the first film had, with the exception of surprises. We see more of the "real world" in the "last human city" of Zion and we go back to the 1999-look urban virtual reality of the Matrix for more encounters with artificially-intelligent baddies and--the real reason you've turned up--a lot more martial arts superheroics.

The downside is that this is just part one of a two-pack of sequels, with Revolutions required to tie up the story and sort out a great deal of plot confusion. There are other problems: none of the stars have much good material to work with outside the fights and stunts, which makes the film sorely miss the mix of science fiction thrills and character interplay of the original instalment.

However, the Wachowski Brothers still deliver more than enough stand-alone instant classic action sequences to make you ignore their duff script: in particular, Reeves and Hugo Weaving square off in a rumble that gets dicey, as more and more identical Weavings come out of the woodwork to pile on the lone hero; and a full quarter of an hour is devoted to a chase through the Matrix that lets Laurence Fishburne shoulder the heroic business. A last-reel encounter with a virtual God, the architect of the Matrix, finally delivers some major plot advances, but the scene is so brilliantly shot and designed--with Reeves framed against a wall of TV screens that show multiple versions of himself--that it's easy to be distracted by the decor and miss the point of what's being said. --Kim Newman

On the DVD: The Matrix Reloaded two-disc set amazingly has very little in-depth stuff on this physically impressive movie; there's not even a commentary track. Perhaps the Wachowski Brothers want to keep their enigmatic aura, or perhaps there's a better DVD coming after the trilogy ends? Best here is the 30-minute feature on the incredible freeway chase: here you get the inside scoop on how the titanic 12-minute sequence was put together. There's plenty of material on the second disc, but it's just filler, with the actors talking about how great it is to work again with the Matrix team and plenty of quick edits of explosions and other "cool" things. There's a segment on product placement, 30 minutes on how the video game was created and the MTV Movie Awards parody. The features feel more like pre-movie hype than post-film deconstruction. Dolby 5.1 sound is suitably spectacular--but there's no DTS option--and the super-wide 2.40:1 picture is, of course, pin-sharp, bringing out all the lavish detail and highlighting the contrast between the green-hued Matrix and the grimy grey real world. --Doug Thomas

Format: DVD
Neo (Reeves) consults the Oracle about his nightmares as the machines dig deeper towards Zion.

The Matrix blew minds at the turn of the century with its intellectual decoding of reality and with many unanswered questions a sequel was always needed. Sadly with this sequel plenty went unanswered and more problems were generated through a ridiculous debate of choice, encoding of action conventions and a pathetic prophecy that demeans the potential of the one.

This narrative desperately tries to pick up a healthy real life debate as its predecessor did so easily. The ongoing outdrawn discourse about how choice is created through power and how difficult decisions can hold anyone back. There is simply too much discussion of this concept through the too long film which inevitably leads to the central protagonist having to face this concept. Its as predictable as tomorrow which coming from a massive Sci-Fi fan is one of the biggest disappointments in the genre's history. The weight of this ideology is ruined further by the encoding of the most annoying character in cinematic history the Architect. The man talks in technical waffle, looks like your least favourite uncle and will stare you to death.

The ending of the first film showed Neo now believing he is the one so he knows his powers now. This leads you to believe, after his first fight with the agents, that he can do absolutely anything, which takes away the imagination and the fear for his character. He is now an obvious winner which again is sad to see. The prophecy puts an obvious and far fetched spin on the boring narrative in an attempt to redeem the character but fails easily.

The first film created the most frightful villains imaginable.

Format: DVD
It can't be denied that this film is flawed. Despite probably the best special effects in history and some incredible stunts, there are simply so many on this movie, and they go on for so long (eg.neo fights Smith for ten minutes, 12 minute freeway chase) that they just lose their effect.The action should have been used more sparingly for it to appear as striking as it did in the original Matrix.
Other parts of tyhe film suggest that the directors have just lost the plot. There are too many comedy moments, which make the film seem like a bit of a farce at times. The actor who plays 'Lock' is embarrassing, and the Zion scenes look too much like Star Wars. Morpheus talks in his monotonous philosophical voice incessantly, so that unlike the first film, where he was the most complete and impressive character, he ends up looking more than a little silly. Neo suffers in the same way when Larry and Andy have him flying around like Superman, one arm outstretched. The Merovingian was surely included for a bit of light relief.
This film could have been brilliant, but as it is it's just good.
The common fate of sequels is evident again here, as for the most part it's just more of the same, and although it's extremely well made, we've seen it all before. The truly new ideas are rare, but have the same startling effect of the original. Examples are Neo meeting 'The Architect'( fantastic scene), his developing relationship with Trinity, and the discovery that he has power even in the real world.
The MTV Movie Awards parody on disc two, featuring Seann William Scott and Justin Timberlake, is almost as funny as the film itself.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is the essential middle episode of a classic SF film trilogy, and it continued to develop the (then) revolutionary shooting techniques used to capture the real action in multi angle ultra slow motion mingled with state-of-the-art CGI, this is one of those dark, moody, gripping, questioning-reality epics that should be a part of every SF enthusiasts collection, because most unusually Hollywood actually got it right; this is an essential part of a genuine "What If?" followed through lots of twists to a believable conclusion without any silly 'get out cheats' along the way.

However be aware that this episode is merely a bridge between the original Matrix and the finale of Matrix Revolutions, but still essential viewing, and the ending is not really an ending merely the introduction to the finale. You will need to see the third film. This cliff-hanger aspect is what for me loses it a star.

The acting continues to be excellent with the characters developing their personae such that one forgets any previous other roles or typecasting the actors might have enjoyed. The cinematography, lighting and special effects are all superb in this 2.40:1 wide-screen presentation and are best seen on a larger screen, and these images are fully complemented by the stunning surround sound. The three Matrix films were among the reasons I bought a 5.1 surround system, and then later upgraded to a really good system.

The extras on the second DVD in this set are excellent value and include details on the background to the Matrix and making of the film, as well as additional CDROM material for the PC.
