In the powerful final chapter of The Matrix Trilogy, Neo (Keanu Reeves) took another step forward in the quest for truth that began with his journey into the real world at the outset of The Matrix - but that transformation has left him drained of his power, adrift in a no-mans-land between the Matrix and the Machine World. While Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) holds vigil of Neos comatose body, Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) grapples with the revelation that The One in which he has invested a lifes worth of faith is merely another system of control invented by the architects of the Matrix. During the stunning conclusion, the rebels long quest for freedom culminates in an explosive battle, as the Machine Army wages devastation on Zion and its citizens mount an aggressive defence
The opening reels of Matrix Revolutions do nothing to dispel the feeling of exhausted disappointment that set in during the second half of The Matrix Reloaded. There's plenty more talky guff combined with the picking-up of hard-to-remember plot threads as Neo (Keanu Reeves) lies in a coma in the "real" world and is stranded on a tube station in a limbo "beyond the Matrix" while his allies do a reprise of the shooting-their-way-past-the-bodyguards bit from the last film (this time, the baddies can walk on the ceiling). A new Oracle (Mary Alice) makes some pronouncements about the end being near and more things happen--including the evil Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) manifesting in reality by possessing a minor character and perfidiously blinding our hero, who wears a becoming ribbon over his wounded eyes and perceives the world in an impressive "flaming truth vision".
What about the action? The equivalent of the last film's freeway chase scene is a huge face-off as the Sentinels (robot squids) finally breach the caverns of Zion, "the last human city", and swarm against a battalion of pilot-manipulated giant robots: here, the effects are seamless and the images astonishing, though the fact that none of the major characters are involved and the whole thing goes on so long as if designed to top any previous robot-on-robot screen carnage means that it becomes monotonously amazing, like watching someone else play a great computer game. After a too-easily-managed major realignment of the enmities, the film--and the series--finally delivers a sign-off sequence that's everything you could want as Neo and Smith get into a kung fu one-on-one in a rain-drenched virtual city, flying as high as Superman and Brainiac in smart suits. It comes too late to save the day and the wrap-up is both banal and incoherent, but at least this single combat is a reward for hardy veterans who've sat through seven hours of build-up. --Kim Newman
On the DVD: when the first Matrix DVD was released, with never-before-seen features such as the "Follow the White Rabbit" option, it set a benchmark against which subsequent discs were judged. But neither sequel has lived up to the original's high standards. The Matrix Revolutions two-disc set is an unexceptional package, with a routine "making of" featurette being the main bonus item. Amid all the usual backslapping guff about how great everyone is and what a great time they've all had, it's possible to glean some nuggets of useful information about the baffling plot--though cast and crew can't repress a note of weariness creeping in when discussing the horribly protracted shooting schedule. The feature on the CG Revolution is the most informative for people who like to know how everything was done, and, in the same vein, there's also a multi-angle breakdown of the Super Burly Brawl. A 3-D timeline gives a handy summary of the story so far, and there's a plug for The Matrix Online game. The anamorphic 2.40:1 picture is, of course, a real treat to look at, even if the movie is mostly shades of dark grey and dark green; soundwise the dynamic range of the Dolby Digital surround is extreme: all conversations are conducted in throaty whispers, while the action sequences will push your speakers to the limit. No DTS option, though. And as with Reloaded, there's no audio commentary either: the Wachowski's policy of not talking about their creation begins to seem like a ploy to avoid answering awkward questions. --Mark WalkerSee all Product Description

I think that the acting continues to be excellent although some other reviewers have suggested the cast were becoming jaded and exhausted by the long shooting schedule. 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 more details on the background to the Matrix and making of the film, as well as additional CDROM material for the PC, and no duplication of the extras supplied with the previous two films.
And then one needs to buy the other two films to complete the trilogy and view them in the right sequence to find out what was really going on, and the first one is actually the best by a long way.

I will still buy this on DVD, as im a sucker but ive got to have all three. But will I watch it as much as i saw the first one?.......Nope.
After both The Matrix and Reloaded, you thought that the brothers could not go wrong, they were able to create the story in 1999, sustain its mystique and action in May 2003, but have no idea how to end such a complex saga. Everything was perfect, even down to the soundtracks - you knew that they couldn't go wrong at this point. And it's such a shame that it all ended the way it did, I sat in my seat of the theatre just thinking "that cannot be the end?!?! It can't be!", expecting there to be another scene of dialogue to explain absolutely everything, to give all the answers... but it never came. Instead, you got a very cliched ending, which would annoy every one of the hardcore Matrix fans out there - the philosophy had vanished, the amazing kung-fu sequences, and coolness of the all black look and sunglasses - all for a cold Zion and a dull feeling while watching the film. I regret for what I will write, I hate criticising this film because of the greatness of the first two but certain things have to be said. I had no idea that such an ending was coming.
Continuing exactly where Reloaded left off, you find both Neo and Agent Smith (in human form as Bane) in a coma, and the humans preparing for battle against the machines who are drilling their way through to Zion.Read more ›
Why 3 stars? Well, I loved the first two movies and whilst this film is not a worthy sequel, it is worth viewing on its own merits. The effects are outstanding and some of the set piece action will never be equalled. The robot invasion of Zion and the final fight between Smith and Neo are visually stunning and exciting action sequences. Throughout, the action is impressive and the cinematography evokes suitably futuristic imagery throughout.
So, definitely a flawed film and not a worthy conclusion. But don't worry if you didn't get it - you are not stupid it's just not that good
