The sfx bombardment can't hide a lack of sense and substance.

The whole film may be more than a bit suspect cerebrally, with dime-store philosophy, potted mysticism and cut-price otherworldliness, but visually it gives full value as a virtuoso workout for your senses.

Indeed, if you loved the first Matrix and its mix of comic-book angst, martial arts, virtual reality, video-game punch-ups, pop philosophy, biblical subtext, romance, tragedy and pathos, then you won't be disappointed.

Electrifying but still violent 2nd in trilogy.

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.

A smorgasbord of speed, noise, exhilaration, violence and unmitigated how-did-they-do-that glee, this might be the car chase to end all car chases - even with the supremely cheesy techno music.

'What made the first film so satisfying -- the detailed creepiness of human enslavement by technology -- is barely touched on here.'

The technical talent is there: the problem is the script, which never once pauses to consider its own essential silliness.

I liked this movie and can recommend it with a clear critical conscience, but it never moved me even half as much as Steven Spielberg's A.I.
June 3, 2003
A sadder, wiser, more grown-up movie than its predecessor.
June 1, 2003
An unqualified triumph for the many artisans who brought to life some of the most audacious and astonishing action sequences you are likely to see for a decade.
May 21, 2003
It all adds up to 138 minutes of very high-quality entertainment: and it's not often the time whizzes by as entertainingly as this.
May 19, 2003
In the face of almost unbearable expectations, the Wachowski brothers deliver a sequel that soars to places only hinted at in the original.
May 18, 2003
You don't have to buy into the geeky mythmaking in The Matrix Reloaded in order to enjoy its kinetic pleasures.
May 18, 2003
There's only so much Rubik's Cubism a film can handle, and Reloaded is awash in sci-fi and religious overtones that continually bog down the film's forward motion.
May 16, 2003
Early in the movie, Morpheus warns a new character that he's got to have faith. All things considered, The Matrix Reloaded justifies that faith.
May 16, 2003
Smart, sexy, and action-rammed.
May 16, 2003
In this first Matrix sequel, you'll see things you've never seen before on a movie screen, and that's all that matters.
May 16, 2003
Digital millions die in movies a lot now, but who gives a rat's? They're all just zeros and ones. Unless there's some visibly human traits, it's hard to care.
