Dark, with jaw-dropping effects, stunning action beats and a chase to end all chases, The Matrix Reloaded is a movie-going dare.

...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.

We hear so much that Neo is "The One" the "Oracle" spoke of in "The Prophecy" that I began to think his midiclorines predisposed him to The Force.

While upping the ante considerably in the action and effects department, storytelling stumbles frequently this outing as the movie stops cold for philosophical digressions about fate and destiny and reality.

It's really just assumed that if you didn't care enough to show up the first time and get inducted as a Matrix loyalist, who needs you on reload, ticket or no ticket?

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.

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

It's the technical wizardry that keeps "The Matrix Reloaded" going at all, which should not be the case.

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.

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

A rabble-rousing aestheticization of violence and potential violence...Even I don't think the Wachowskis are Nazis, but I do think they might be Leni Riefenstahls.

Ultimately like a long theme park ride.

One incredibly cool...kung-fu melee; one jaw-dropping, 100-mph, against-traffic freeway chase; and way, way too much pseudo-philosophical yappity- yappity-yap.

A flawed thinking man's action sci-fi flick.

Andy and Larry Wachowski's eagerly awaited sequel comprises equal parts style and stupidity.

'Simplemente es una mediana cinta de acción que quizá encuentre su lugar cuando llegue la parte final de la historia.'

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.

For such a rich visual movie, Reloaded tells far more than it shows.

The film has the same problems as The Empire Strikes Back, offering neither the novelty of an initial episode nor the satisfaction of a climactic one.
May 14, 2003
Much-anticipated sequel to The Matrix is both phenomenally talky and loaded with action and effects. How can this be? It's long.
