Not a patch on the original,
This review is from: The Matrix Reloaded [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
The Matrix Reloaded fails to achieve anything that made the original film create a new benchmark in the sci-fi genre. Further character development has been ignored to make way for a myriad of sci-fi philosophical waffle that pretends to be innovative while in reality simply adds stuffing to this gourmet turkey.
While the original film made sense and drew on a number of themes such as hope, fear and the meaning of life, this film merely tries to tie up irrelevant lose ends to make a granny knot of a plot.
The special effects are amazing, yet the action sequences are overplayed and lack tension.
See this film as popcorn to keep you munching until the final part of the trilogy - lets hope it regains the spirit of the original!
