The Matrix Revolutions (2003)
USA / English
"Everything that has a beginning has an end. "The human city of Zion defends itself against the massive invasion of the machines as Neo fights to end the war at another front while also opposing the rogue Agent Smith.
I can't understand the hate. Amazing movie.
We all know the original Matrix was easily the pinacle. But that's because
it grabbed out attentions as something brand new. The first movie, if done
correctly as the Matrix was, can open our eyes to new ideas we never
considered in any strain of our imagination.
I'll admitt, Reloaded was a bit slow and perhaps a bit tedious at times. It
was saved by an amazing Neo vs. Thousands of Smiths' battle, an even more
amazing highway scene centered around Morpheus, and the appearance of the
amazing Monica Belluci (a character I wish we'd heard more from the in the
Now as for Revolutions. Unless you're unrealistic or a mass-media critic,
who all hate anything outside of artsy or useless Indy movies that get ZERO
major release...you'll enjoy and perhaps love Revolutions.
You get clarity to a lot of questions. You get resolution. No cliffhangers.
People die and people survive, I won't dare say whom. You are brought all
the way from dispair to happiness. Instead of simply giving the cheesy
ending, the Matrix's "end" is proper and sensible.
Of course there are some plot holes, but I dare anyone and everyone to find
a movie without numerous mistakes or unanswered questions. More and more
directors should heed the advice of David Lynch and allow the audience to
interpret a few things for themselves. Keep them thinking. (I won't open up
a Lynch debate, that's for another time and place)
In the end, you'll enjoy Revolutions. It is action-packed with amazing
special effects and the usual above-average acting and amazing creativity in
the choreography of the fight scenes.
Agent Smith shines in a stellar performance by Hugo Weaving. His words to
Neo throughout his battle are stellar. His encounter with the Oracle,
awesome. Keanu, Fish, Carrie-Anne, Jada, and others for the fight for good
are also as sharp as they need to be.
In the end, Revolutions is everything a true fan of the Matrix wants. And
if they ask for more, they are not only guilty of being unrealistic, but
also asking too much for an amazing trilogy.
A trilogy I believe should be held in the same breath as Star Wars (the
original three), Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, and numerous other
action-drama based trilogies. I'm sure I'll be adding the Lord of the Rings
trilogy to that list, barring a collapse with the Return of the King
(another debate for another time).
