They don't come up with anything new, but it's bigger, louder, and mighty impressive, even if the dialogue sounds more and more like a preprogrammed video game.

Basically just one fight scene after another, with little to give them the meaning or narrative purpose that the fight scenes in the first film had.

Though introducing some new ideas and characters, Matrix Reloaded is not as exciting as the 1999 original, suffering from problems that often inflict middle chapters of trilogies.

Not one of the worst sequels that has ever been put in movie theaters, and not one of the most disappointing... but, is it ever a grind.

Offers some phenomenal action sequences that more than deliver on the jaw-dropping promise shown on the trailers.

The Wachowskis manage to surprise and amaze with some stunning machine special effects and great scenes that truly dazzle the mind.

Between the money scenes, we get characters standing at attention and burping prophecies and deep thoughts at each other.

...less a narrative than an advertisement for a cultural wave. It's all about discount Zen and black clothes, the commodification of sterile violence as Kabuki.

As a movie, its pacing is off, its characters are thin and its plot is...well, questionable at best. But as a science-fiction phenomenon, it is art.

If you're 14 or younger in age or sensibility, you may giggle at some of the bons mots.

Worryingly, the longer this movie goes on, the harder it is to care.

The Matrix Reloaded -- not unlike its predecessor -- might be hard to swallow, but it's so delicious you just can't help but want more.
