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.

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.

Well watching Keanu's acting of Neo you would have never believed he could possibly be human. He is meant of course to be Thomas Anderson but that is completely non existant in this movie. Smith still refers to him by his name but it lost me as to who he was on about when i first watched this.
Reloaded ain't a patch on the first film, but is a lot better than Revolutions. I felt the old lookking Carrie Ann Moss and the actors who played Merovingian and Locke were all excellent, but the main to, Reeves and Fishbourne, were throughout very poor. Could Keanu speak up and act for once, got he gets annoying to watch, and Fishbourne over exagerated evetything and its annoying. The story at times makes little sense although overall wasn't bad. The main problem was the script, full of over the top dull philosophies and quietly muffled quirks , supposed to be comedy moments
And Neo. Well he seems indestructable, making all fight scenes pitless and they drag on to long. The film with Smith in the hallway is dreadful. He kicks one Smith, they all fall and he flies throught he door faster beforew a single smith could stop him.
Good points were there though. The car chase was awesome, although i am puzzled as to waht happened to Trinity after she cycled the wrong way. We see Neo rescue Morpheous but Trinitys escape(as she went wrong way from exit pint) wasn't there. The scene with archetect was great,if baffling and the battle with Smiths first time is great, if a little poorly edited and goes downhill once Neo attacks with the pipe.
Overall a 50/50 film
