my #1 favorite movie of all time!
½ March 9, 2018
Nowhere near as cool or interesting as the original. Some cool effects and scenes, but a major disappointment.

There are movies, then there are good movies, then there are the greatest movies... and then comes The Matrix Trilogy!

The Matrix Reloaded serves as an acceptable sequel albeit lacking fresh ideas that is more than willing to settle on prolonged and slightly tedious action sequences and focusing on the quantity of enemies and martial arts moves than their quality. I feel The Matrix Reloaded did both a "How to do an Action Movie" with the Chateau scene with Neo fighting the random guys with weapons like knives and swords where it depends more on timing, strategy, critical thinking and speed and the "How NOT to do an Action Movie" which was Neo fighting an entire army of hundreds of Agent Smiths, it gets tedious and the outcome seems very predictable.

A marginal improvement over its predecessor. Takes itself too seriously than it should. Overall, it's convoluted and tries to be smarter than it actually is...

This movie is defiantly a good squeal. It defiantly falls into the squeal is not as good as the original theme with movie. There is a lot better with this movie then the original but still it has moments where it feels like they where just trying to hard to make this one bigger and it kind of was annoying.

4.5 stars if I consider this as a standalone movie.
5 stars when I consider this film had to follow what must be one of the greatest films of all time.

Some sluggishness to the excessiveness of the action sequences, but overall manages to maintain the Sci-Fi perspective of using the story to drive the larger philosophical questions.

This film killed any interest in the Matrix, overcooked nonsense. It basically ruins everything that is good about the first one

Puntaje Original: 6.5

Al parecer en esta película se preocuparon más por las escenas de acción (que por momentos parece cómica), en vez del desarrollo de la historia, la cual nos deja con una sazón de disgusto con la abierta conclusión que nos hace esperar una tercera entrega.

This sequel in itself is not bad. The bad part is that it heavily relies on CGI which were awful back then. Now it looks like an animated film at times. If the original film is a film for all time, its sequels won't be remembered or appreciated. Though this first sequel has really exciting scenes, like the chase sequence and in particular the fight in a car between Morpheus and of the twins.

A pretty okay sequel, that is kinda decent to the good original film, but with the Wachowski's constantly beating you over the head with post modern philosophy, and smartass dialogue, the film loses you from trying to connect with it's plot and context. Plenty of eye candy, but brain dead storytelling!

The 2 stars are for the action scenes. Storyline seemed to be written by The Architect. Confusing.

The Matrix Reloaded: While not as thought provoking and intellegently flawed of its last predessesor Matrix Reloaded offers plenty of action without sacraficing story over effects and is as entertaining as its predeccsor.

The Matrix Reloaded being not as good as it's predecessor lacking some of the heady themes but is still amazing! Great performances are still given by the whole cast with lot's of action and fantastic popcorn friendly thrills! The Wachowski Brothers successfully make an amazing sequel almost as good as the first Matrix and is definitely enjoyable

I look at this film after all these years and question the intent of the filmmakers. On the side of positive, the action and returning cast are still impressive and the ending scene could've been an epic conclusion. The biggest issue with the film is the big ambition with setting up the storyline for the finale film, introducing a love interest for Morpheous and keeping Agent Smith as the central villain of the series, granted he was good in the first but this slowly grows mind numbing. The script is full of exposition and for Neo being the one, he doesn't know all that much about the world he is suppose to rule. This film came out when people looked at films as a trilogy when this film should have explored Neo being the one, I feel like the film is always on the back foot, explaining everything because the filmmakers chose this path. It feels like a 20 year sequel, explaining past events and it struggles with maintaining a consistent beat, the fight before he meets the Oracle is just an excuse for more kung-fu and the dialogue between the 2 actors is horrible. The film is a missed opportunity at creating an action packed series and followup to the more critically successful original. The series gets worse with the next film but you can't help but feel annoyed with this movie, it had endless possibilities and Warner Bros had faith in the filmmakers, just look at Jupiter's Ascending. The video game was a better story than this film, this was a giant cash cow that crashed the franchise into the ground. This series became a blockbuster series when the original film was a dark world with a distinct tone. The filmmakers tried something odd when they should have focused on the one movie first, these back to back productions have mixed results. The Lord of the Rings worked because they had a novel course direction as the blueprint, this film relied on the filmmakers who shortened fans with a general lack of ambition.20-08-2017.

NOBODY will ever rate this sequel higher than the original but it had some fantastic scenes. The plot of the entire trilogy seemed to get off track in this movie which had a little too much CGI and seemed to try a little too hard although it was light years better than the dreadful 3rd chapter of the Matrix trilogy.

It looks so cool and I will be the first man to ever find out what that dude is saying.

A worthy sequel packed with action heavy thrills and a surprising amount of narrative left, even if it does not uphold its predecessor's intelligent flaws. But is versatile enough to stand on its own turf.
