3 out of 5 stars. This is the weakest of the Matrix trilogy, but it does have some good aspects. It could have been greatly improved by cutting out about 30 minutes of the Zion scenes and battles and switched out for more scenes with Neo and/or in the Matrix. The Zion scenes and battle in the middle of the film really dragged the story down and took away from what people really cared about and really enjoyed about part 1 and 2. The Zion scenes definitely served an important purpose to the story, but it could have been told more concisely and had less focus. All in all "The Matrix Trilogy" is a classic trilogy and as a whole gets 4 out of 5 stars, mostly based on the incredible strength of the first classic film and the fairly strong second film, but the 3rd drags it down from a potentially 4 1/2 - 5 star trilogy.

Ending Trilogies is hard work, especially early ones. The very last scene is where the film really fails, as well as this one becomes excessively heavy-handed.

Without spoilers I'll just say that they are definitely getting carried away with themselves at this point, and it hurts the movie. Nevertheless, it is still a good fun finish to an epic franchise.

a dissapointing finish.. I'd prefer a reboot start by overwriting this film. Decent sci-fi action.

While the film is disappointing at times (and not quite the conclusion to the trilogy most audiences wanted), The Matrix Revolutions is still sure to please Matrix fans with some great special effects and action sequences (that final battle may be ripped off of Dragon Ball Z but IMO, who cares?). Also, that music in the final action sequence between Neo and Smith was nevertheless pure cinematic gold.

not nearly as good as the previous two. most of the action was forgettable. the war scene completely detracted from the main story of the movie (ie neo). there were only a few good action scenes, a couple early, and the final fight was epic (about 3 viewings)

Got too complicated and didn't make any sense and the only thing that made the first two great was the action, Which there wasn't a great deal of in this one and when there was it was disappointing, A final part that ruins The Matrix Trilogy.

It's typically well shot, but Revolutions is a more than disappointing end to a trilogy that started so strongly and with such promise.
July 25, 2016
Despite a better pacing than it's predecessor, it comes to a surprisingly failed conclusion.

The Matrix Revolutions mixes the best of the original and the worst of Reloaded. The acting is wooden however Neo is no longer the immortal, unrootable superhero he was in Reloaded, which makes the final fight scene all the more interesting.

The Matrix Revolutions pode continuar sem o brilhantismo do primeiro,mas se sobrepõem e consegue se mais que o antecessor terminando muito bem the Matrix trilogy.

A dissapointing third part of a trilogy that started with a promising script but fell into a confusing and pretencious conclussion.

Then the last of the trilogy comes the revelation of the story.

The Matrix Revolutions is a very disappointing and an unsatisfying end to the trilogy of The Matrix. The focus is still on Neo, but he is only in the movie for thirty minutes or so, the rest of the movie is just a long boring and tiresome fight. Even the fight near the end was a very disappointing one when compared to the fights in its predecessors.

Entretenida en momentos, interesante en otros, y aburridos en otros; Revolution finaliza la trilogía de la manera más indulgente que se podría encontrar, pero, no significa que sea mala, tiene mucho sentido y algunas cosas son comprensibles.

The third installment of matrix trilogy, but somehow not as groundbreaking as the first two, and the story is quite boring too. However, I must admit that the special effects is top notch, even view in year 2016 standard.

The final chapter of the Keanu Reeves-starring blockbuster 'Matrix' series came to a grinding halt in 'The Matrix Revolutions,' which was widely panned when it was released back in 2003. After a stellar first entry and a lackluster follow-up, 'Revolutions' is the final nail in the coffin for the sci-fi franchise, falling victim to overproduction, bland plot lines and a general feeling of nothingness.

The biggest issue at the center of 'Revolutions' is the fact that it feels like one giant final battle scene. While this should in theory ratchet up the excitement factor, it comes off as a discombobulated, unthought out story that looks a complete mess onscreen. Sure, there are some "wow" moments littered throughout, but even the scenes that take place in the Matrix (as opposed to the majority of the film, which takes place in Zion) feel stale compared to the first two entries.

From an acting standpoint, there's nothing out of the ordinary here. The biggest change is the replacement of the actress who portrays the Oracle, swapping out Gloria Foster for Mary Alice following the former's untimely death. Still, it seems the Oracle has less screen time here, instead leaving time to diversify across multiple actors. This does not help things, though, as viewers feel gipped because they did not get to "close the loop" with a few key characters. Perhaps the only thing that makes 'Revolutions' worth any time at all is the CGI, which is on par with many of the films that were released around the same time.

In short, 'The Matrix Revolutions' is a weak way to end a monumental franchise, and while it was always a tough task to live up to such a masterpiece as an original, this film is a master disaster.

61% It's not a terrible movie, but in terms of finishing a strong series, it comes up short. As the special effects overshadow the storytelling and impressive action sequences that made the first two great.

not good but still entertaining

Another big disappointing sequel to "The Matrix," though still a little superor to the very bad second movie. This movie is really a CGI extravaganza and that overshadows the aspects of a story that could have been very interesting, had the Wachowskis spend more time developing it, than just releasing six months after the second one. The performances are watchable this time around as you can see that Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne really tries to safe this franchise through their likeable performances. Hugo Weaving simply seems like he doesn't want to be there. The story isn't as complicated as in the second movie, but it's just as underwhelming as that one and as you watch the movie again, you really understand why the Wachowskis decided to stop the ideas of future installments. While this isn't the worst of the three, it's definitly a horrible ending to a promising start.
