The Matrix Revolutions Reviews
January 29, 2015
There are a number of great action scenes but for the most part this is dull. Full review later.

The best Matrix film. Let that sink in.
The story and tone is great. Perhaps not as philosophical as its predoccesers, but the previous films were never dark enough. The tone is perfect, the effects are astounding, the score is perfect, what's not to like? Any faults in this film can be to blame to Reloaded and the Original. People who hate it can't adapt to one of the most changing and yet inspiring film franchises of all time. Near-perfect conclusion.

Wow, what a stinker! "The Matrix Revolutions" is a stink bomb of a film, w/ a terrible story, characters that we just don't care about, and an ending that sucks more than the second film's ending. The only enjoyable part of the film is the final fight between Neo and Smith, and even that is flawed, it's overlong, and clearly a carbon copy of "Dragon Ball Z." This is such a disappointing conclusion.

There is a difference between being creative and just being pretentious, and this film exposed the Wachowskis as they truly were.

After the disappointing "Reloaded" ended with the promise of an epic conclusion to the trilogy, audiences were cautiously optimistic that the third and final installment Neo´s quest will redeem the franchise and end on a high note.
Right after the events of the last film, Neo finds himself trapped between the Matrix and the real world for reasons unknown, meanwhile Sentinels have finally reach Zion thus beginning humanity´s last stand.
Having already been disappointed by both of "Revolutions" predecessors , I didn't expected anything different from this film just to continue to have the quality the franchise is known for and, as expected, this final chapter left something to be desire. "Revolutions" pays for the mistakes made by the last installments: The heavy handed philosophical dialog don't pay off, the unsympathetic characters dissolves any tension this battle may have had, the excessive use of CGI takes you out of the experience, all the promising ideas that "Reloaded" introduced are thrown away, the action scenes are forgettable and bland because of the excessive use of CGI, the only actors that gave solid performances (Fishburne and Weaving) are given nothing to do, it lacks memorable scenes like the ones that made "The Matrix" rewatchable and saved "Reloaded", the unfocused directing continues and is even more obvious, and it feels like the Wachowski brothers tried to replicate the epic feel of "The Return of The King" by having the same storylines: One where most characters are in the middle of an all-out war while the two main characters are on quest to destroy the main enemy; but the entire Matrix saga lack the elements that made the LOTR trilogy amazing to begin with.
"The Matrix Revolutions" is one of the most forgettable final chapters that I can think of, fans of this series will enjoy it to some degree but casual viewers like me will definitely watch more their clock than the actual film.

The last Matrix movie which finish the story thats not easy to understand. I liked the first matrix movie most. The movies have nice effects and Keanu Reeves made a decent role in all of them. Overall pretty good scifi/action flicks.

Revolutions is highly disappointing. There is zero emotional depth in this movie, and unlike the second one with action and a little story, there is no story to be found here. Nothing feels new, and there isn't a single original element to be found in the movie. You'd think as an audience going on the journey with the characters for the past 3 films, we'd care that some major ones die. Unfortunately, we don't. The dialogue isn't remotely interesting either, and the story gets way too convoluted with more questions. Luckily there is some impressive action and many answered questions that save this movie. It has some good sequences and nice closure to the series. Still, I was left wanting much more. The Matrix Revolutions gets 2.5/5 stars (C+).

Surely cannot beat the original, but this final installment in the trilogy is a spectacular action achievement with explosive CGI and visuals. Unfortunately, it does not have much else to offer.

Very cool outro to such a great sequence of films.

This entire series is a little bit like His Dark Materials, in that everything turns out to just be standing for something. Or well, at least in the last two instalments, The Matrix certainly seems to be fixated more on the idea of love.

Woah, what happened?

- "ATTACK OF THE SENTINELS"
- The final installment of the popular 'The Matrix' film franchise written and directed by the Wachowski Brothers (Cloud Atlas) is this 2003 'The Matrix Revolutions'. What happened to Neo? And will Zion fall under the threatening attack of the Sentinels? Find out in the epic conclusion, filled with amazing effects and memorable fight scènes. With returning cast members Keanu Reeves (Speed, Point Break), Carrie-Anne Moss (Memento, Disturbia), Laurence Fishburne (Predators, Assault on Precinct 13) and Hugo Weaving (the Lord of the Rings saga, Cloud Atlas), Jada Pinkett Smith (The Nutty Professor, Scream 2), Harold Perrineau (Romeo+Juliet, 28 Weeks Later) and Monica Bellucci (Le Pacte des Loups, Irrévirsible).
While Smith (Weaving) keeps on duplicating himself and Zion is about to be attacked by hordes of Sentinels, the one true hero, Neo Anderson (Reeves) is trapped in a subway station, a place between the Matrix and the Machine City. His only way out is by taking a special train. In the meantime the ship of Niobe (Pinkett Smith) has gone missing. Neo's friends Morpheus (Fishburne) and Trinity (Moss) are on board of the Hammer and plan to search the owners of the train: the Mervovingian and his wife Persephone (Bellucci). Can they get Neo back and save both worlds?

An insult to injury after the mildly disappointing Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions is an aimless finale to the trilogy that started off with aplomb with a sci-fi masterpiece. Whilst Reloaded felt overblown in parts, this is completely underwhelming with pretty much no story, an underdeveloped narrative and lack of character development. The film's only true selling point is its action scenes which are great to watch but feel empty at the same time because you can't invest in the characters. All this amounts to an anti-climactic and nonsensical ending that fails to resolve everything. Not even Hugo Weaving could save this total nothingness of a sequel. Even Spider-Man 3 was entertaining in an unintentionally funny way.

Such a missed opportunity

It seems that this film started the formula that final chapters of other trilogies followed better and mostly improved, but that formula was being played around with best efforts to end an original sci-fi, forced trilogy.
The final Matrix mission was unbalanced between the dazzling visual effects - that works to the appeal - and the story, including the characters, was treated first under a smaller time than the previous films' premises were though out. This could be the reason why the final cinematic chapter wasn't confusing like the others since it was all about putting everything they'd put in the first two chapters to an end.
The only action scene with adrenaline was the final battle between Zion and the mechanic Squids. During the battle, the trilogy's minor characters were given bigger guns than how the main characters took care of things to finish things once and for all. The intriguing fight between Neo (Keanu Reeve) and Smith (Hugo Weaving) was made up with slo-mo visuals and opera-like soundtrack to make the last fight dramatic to a satisfying conclusion.
The Matrix trilogy started in style with nice action pieces and originality. The action gets more exciting with adrenaline at the same time more confusing to the story, with the visual effects between those efforts. As they go up, the style goes down exhausted in a small decrease. They were boosted and brought down a little whenever the trilogy gets an upgrade.
"The Matrix Revolutions" is the least of the three, and was given a better upgrade than its predecessor, but only enhancing the visual effects by taking energy from the characters, individual action pieces and the story. This system upgrade a few things: 1) when ending a trilogy, make sure the final chapter is balanced and given more time to thought out more; and 2) the upgrade is saying "You get the formula. Just do it better in other trilogies." (B)

What a disappointing way to end a series that started out so promising.

I wish this film would explain itself a little more. It takes a fiendish pleasure in leaving the audience in the dark. The script is the same old confusing philosophy of the first 2 movies. Cool, but confusing.
The cinematography here is absolutely wonderful though the fight scenes are not nearly as well choreographed as the first 2 movies.
Same superb level of musical score. Well done!
Same acting. Not all that impressive.
This is probably the weakest film in the series. One of the major differences is that this film had less leather and less shades. That is a change for the worse.
