Averages out to be a mildly better film than The Matrix Reloaded, mostly on account of being neither as good nor as bad in its peaks and valleys.

Ah, the Wachowski's were one trick ponies after all.

Some of this stuff is just cheesy in the same way it's been cheesy in dozens of cheaper, less cultish films.

It's amazing how such a brilliant opening film can devolve into nothing but uninteresting fight scenes and unnecessary visual effects.

Not in my memory has a film been filled with such a succession of ejaculatory FX shots that cover any semblance of story in goo.

''Everything that has a beginning has an end,' says the tag line. Not in financial terms it doesn't.'

Yes, some of the philosophy was clumsily scripted, but I saw and appreciated where the Wachowskis were trying to take the universe.

An over bloated, anticlimactic yawn.

Characterization, plot, and speculations on life and reality take a backseat to the martial arts shoot 'em up sequences, which seem overly long and decidedly ho-hum.
| Original Score: 5/10

...more of the same, with nothing surprising, nothing any longer mind-boggling, and nothing most viewers couldn't guess would happen going in.

The Wachowskis have changed the face of action films for the time being, and I grant them that. But watching this bloated final installment it was hard for me to remember why.

The Matrix Revolutions has successfully dodged the bullet that The Matrix Reloaded aimed at the franchise.

That pompous bunch of futuristic freedom fighters has returned to battle for truth, justice and the right to wear cool sunglasses in the dark.

Watching this, you may be reminded of what Gertrude Stein once observed about the benighted state of Cal-ee-fornia, 'there is no there there.'

Teeters but stays upright, closing the series in a fashion that is appropriately ingenious and infuriating.

A ferociously disappointing and inept conclusion to a trilogy that began with such a bang.
