2.0 out of 5 stars Buying for the wrong reason, 6 Mar. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Matrix Revolutions [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
When I buy a film, I usually like to do so because I loved the film and intend to watch it in it's own right over and over.
Revolutions does not conform to this ideal. I loved the first film, although it appeared to be a take on eXistenZ and Total Recall (eXistenZ is an excellent film, by the way, and Total Recall is a legend). The first film asked a lot of questions, but at least lead you in the right direction.
Reloaded answered a couple of questions and was an adequate middle-ground for the trilogy, it kept up the pace and continued to lead your mind into expectations for a climactic ending.....
Which just didn't happen with Revolutions. The storyline skipped and jumped around, convenience, predicability and god-complexes started to take over. And it seems that towards the end, they realised that they had been filming for a while and were going to run out of space or budget, and all of a sudden, the various little story arcs came to crashing endings that just left you wondering if perhaps you had dozed off and missed something. Not many questions got answered, and as we knew full-well that this was the last film in the Trilogy, I for one was deeply disappointed by the end.
But as I already own the first and second film on DVD, the third one is pretty-much a given.
Doesn't mean I have to like it.
