Fun, full of exceptional action scenes, impeccable visual effects, beautiful cinematography by Bill Pope, cutting edge editing by Zach Staenberg, striking soundtrack by Don Davis, once again exceptional script and direction by the Wachowskis and great performances by Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, Jada Pinkett Smith and Gloria Foster, The Matrix Reloaded is a sequel worthy of its predecessor and one of the best film sequels
I disagree on some of the stuff poeple say about this movie that it is bad it is not bad but not perfect I really like the highway scene and the nuisance did really like the ending but to me the film was good
Sure it is dumb and over the top, but is it a whole bunch of fun? My answer is yes, yes it is.
Yes! More matrix please!
FUCK IT! This movie is NOT good!
The first matrix was Awesome, And the story was Great!
But the story hade already been told!
Theres no story to tell!
So its SHIT
In my humble opinion, this is the best one in the series. First the elephant in the room: The Neo vs a thousand Smith's - scene!
This scene got such an undeserved backlash. That's because people don't see the clever joke the filmmakers did with the rag doll physics. Every Smith that Neo punts away, gets a silly unrealistic animation. And this bothers people because it is unrealistic. That's just the point!!! xD
The Matrix isn't the real world. The Smith bodies are not real bodies, they are meshes, computer models. And they follow a rag doll physics schematic when they die. Your own computer will do that as well if you model and rig a character and then let it die.
Nothing in these movies are mistakes. Every spoken word, every visual! Everything has something clever behind it. But you need to use your head. And that is where most people trail off. "I don't understand this, so it's stupid."
No! If you think like that, then YOU are stupid. Even I was dumb the first time I watched the trilogy. Some things just flew right above my head and big chunks of the movies didn't make any sense at all. That was until I watched the movies again years later and caught on to the subtle hints and clues scattered throughout the movies.
I promise, I even bet on it: The fourth movie, if it's even near as complex as the first three, it's going to get such a backlash and such a bad score that it's going to be considered the worst movie of all time. That's because people don't like to think when they don't absolutely have to. Just wait and see!
The second part of the Matrix trilogy is neither as great as the first film nor as serviceable as the third one- Its just a good sequel to the original with some cool sequences. Although there are things about The Matrix Reloaded that I like, the movie is so open-ended and riddled with gaping holes that it's virtually impossible to view this as a finished project. The Matrix Reloaded delivers what a segment of the viewing audience expects – visually dynamic action sequences separated by interludes of wordy, often pretentious exposition. The only real intellectual titillation comes at the end, when the storyline lurches forward in a moderately unexpected direction. There are, of course, a large number of fight scenes. These include some relatively "simple" (and not terribly energetic) ones – Neo fighting a few agents, Trinity trying to survive a vicious onslaught, Neo "proving" that he's "The One" to a skeptical guardian, etc. But there are also three big ones.
Loved it. Even better than the first, and that's saying something.
The first matrix film had an easy concept to follow, while the matrix reloaded seems to be messy and confusing to audiences. Many scenes occur in this movie that don't seem necessary or relevant to the plot.
A worthy sequel indeed, more ideas than most Marvel / Disney fodder can muster. Go with it and be entertained.
