The Matrix has you again!,
Having been a huge fan of the original Matrix back in 1999 I awaited this new outing with excitement and some dread. In most case sequels never live up to the original with some exceptions (Two Towers for example). So when Matrix Reloaded finally came onto the big screen I didn't know what to expect but I wasn't disappointed.
The opening titles sent a tingle down my spine and the sight of Trinity, leather clad, is enough to spark my interests. That aside the first half hour was slow going but worthwhile in my mind, the story is just as important as the action. It was good to see the real world and see what the fight was all for. Once inside the Matrix the action was awesome and the scene with the many Agent Smiths was breathtaking along with the car chase, which had me dodging the traffic. The action is just as good if not better than the first and Neo does it all without breaking into a sweat, now that's coolness for you!
Yes the lines can be cheesy at times but wasn't the first? This is a different film to the first, a film in it's own right and yet a part of something greater. The film isn't for those with short attention spans, you have to concentrate and follow the story especially when Neo is in the room with the architect, that takes concentration but doesn't it raise some serious questions. It does for me and I can't wait to see Matrix Revolutions, what is the truth and how will it all end?
I don't want to give too much away for those who haven't seen the film but if you haven't seen the film then ignore all the bad reports, what do they know, judge for yourself and I'm sure the Matrix will have you!
