A plodding, lifeless and leaden final chapter with little of the gosh-wow action that made the first two installments so enjoyable.

Most disappointing is the conclusion to the trilogy.

This is the Review About What I Believe Must Be Written About the Language That Is Used By Wachowski Brothers In Their Movies About What It Is That The Matrix Must Be.

Overlong and underwhelming, The Matrix Revolutions reinforces the thinking that it's a rare movie series in which the final chapter is the strongest.

Please someone, get me the blue pill. I want to forget that this ambitious and noteworthy series is ending so weakly.

Epic trilogy's final installment feels like a trailer for itself -- and more than a little bit wrong.

So tedious and unoriginal that it's more like The Matrix Repetitions, with one numbing battle sequence after another, all of them looking like outtakes from the last Star Wars.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

For many devoted Wachowski Brothers fans, this trilogy-ending film inspires nothing more than the whispered words "I'm out."

Once the Wachowskis dragged us down the rabbit-hole, they had nothing left to show, just hokum and ideas stolen from other films.

The film is a soggy mess, essentially a loud, wild 100-minute battle movie bookended by an incomprehensible beginning and a laughable ending.

The Matrix Revolutions feels tired.

It succeeds only in diminishing its predecessors' legacy, and turning a cinematic landmark into nothing more than business as usual. What a waste.

How did something that started out so cool get so dorky?

Averages out to be a mildly better film than The Matrix Reloaded, mostly on account of being neither as good nor as bad in its peaks and valleys.

Some of this stuff is just cheesy in the same way it's been cheesy in dozens of cheaper, less cultish films.

There's a warmed-over feeling that permeates what should have been the defining film of the trilogy.
