News & Interviews for The Matrix Revolutions
Critic Reviews for The Matrix Revolutions
The Wachowski brothers have rendered their chronicles into banality, as if trying to imitate the qualitative tailspin of the Star Wars series.
There's nothing even resembling a surprise in the third and weakest installment of the trilogy.
No less than the rankest demagogue, The Matrix Revolutions insists on the primacy of faith over knowledge. Once it locks and loads, however, the triumphant visuals short-circuit anything resembling abstract thought.
One of the most original concepts in recent fantasy movie history has devolved into something perfectly ordinary.
An unwieldy, two-plus-hours third act of a movie, guided by the principle (incubated by Reloaded and fully grown here) that too much is never too much.
As an action movie, it's talky, but it rocks.
Audience Reviews for The Matrix Revolutions
A frustrating conclusion that got way too convoluted by this point and is unable to bring the intelligent ideas proposed in the first two movies into something consistent, leaving too much unanswered and becoming only messier and more confusing with every new information.
Another installment of standard matrix stuff with cool special effects.
Agent Smith's reach has extended into the real world threatening Neo's attempt to end the war as the machine offensive breaches the gates of Zion. The disappointment felt upon the release of the rather self indulgent and empty Matrix Reloaded caused a real backlash against the Wachowskis, and Revolutions garnered a similarly lukewarm reception. But for me, shifting the action to the "real" world meant less reliance on endless stop motion fight sequences and freshened things up immensely. The visuals are truly spectacular, even by today's standards meaning Revolutions is easily the best looking of the three films and it has a more epic scope that reminded me of the last battle sequences of Return Of The Jedi done in the style of Aliens, and for a sci-fi nerd that's the ultimate combination! The Wachowski's strengths always lied in concepts and visual effects so Revolutions is a much more satisfying cocktail than the clunky wordiness of Reloaded making for a truly jaw dropping thrill ride; the attack on Zion's docking platform is one of the best action sequences I've ever seen and it's a far more satisfying package than the lumbering CGI jerk off that was Avatar. If they'd only trimmed the superfluous flab off the story and made it two films instead of three, I think a worthy sequel would have emerged. That aside, Revolutions is still a highly under-rated finale and well worth a second look.
