A disappointing end to a once great trilogy. Over stuffed with action and a weak narrative crushes all hopes for a good second sequel.

The 1999 generation were too blown away by the first Matrix to really give this a chance. They built up their perfect closing chapter in their heads and in return tore apart an above average, masterfully crafted trilogy finale. It's best seen immediately after Reloaded as "chapter 2" of the 2-part story. The film is magnificent. The pace for the first 30 minutes is thrilling. I loved Captain Rolan and a dejected Morpheus. The chase between the Sentinels and the Hammer is one of the most impressive sequences ever put to film. I loved the resolution between Neo and Bane. It seamlessly builds to an enjoyable battle for Zion. But everything builds to a rousing 3rd act as Neo and Trinity must break grounds and enter the Machine world with an almost 0% chance of succeeding. While the final scene fell flat for me, the whole 3rd act is a masterpiece of science fiction. I'm glad to hear that the sequels are being very well received by a new generation of viewers. They were 2 films that were never going to be accepted by the original generation that saw Matrix 1 as a life changing experience. They were literally ahead of their time.

Even though The Matrix Revolution is one of the poor movies in the series, I still kind of like it. Yes, the strong plot is gone and the ending of the movie is really disappointing, but the characters still remain their coolness and the final battle between Neo and Smith is completely awesome. I thought this sequel was OK.

Terrible boring matrix movie.

Plagued by the same confusing and convoluted themes that started to peak out in Reloaded, Revolutions is honestly one of the weirdest movies I've ever seen, which is both a good and a bad thing at the same time. The Jesus symbolism, which briefly appeared in the first two films, has been dialed up to eleven, and the film suffers as a result. As in Reloaded, all the action with Neo involved is honestly just boring and has no real tension. The final confrontation between Neo and Agent Smith is criminally underwhelming and anticlimactic. I was hoping to see Neo fight thousands or even millions of Agent Smiths, and those hopes died with the line "That's why the rest of me is going to watch." On the other hand, Hugo Weaving's performance is just as menacing as the first two films, and Laurence Fishburne also gives a strong performance. All the action that doesn't involve Neo is entertaining and underrated, especially the final battle for Zion.

Has it's moments and properly concludes. but my issue was it takes way too long to get to the point and lacks memorability. And its kinda boring. It however does have a great climax i just think audiences including myself didn't like how this was less of a matrix film and more of a zion film. But who can resist the awesome show down at the end. This film wasnt spectacular because it felt like a movie that was a bunch of left overs from the first two and sole existence was to end the story. I got the feeling the directors couldnt wait to get away from this franchise so they purposely made part 3 less amusing so that the studio would let them move on with out anyone bugging them to make anymore matrix films.

Well, it's the end of the trilogy - Zion vs. Machines/Neo vs. Smith! And it does wrap it up pretty well. I didn't love the direction that "Smith" went, but oh well. I did though love Jada Pinkett "Smith", so that was a bonus! I probably wouldn't re-watch this, but the first one will always be on my super thumbs up list!

The final battle for Zion is impressive, but other than that this film cracks under the weight of its creator's ideas.

Despite challenging well established tropes and conventions, it manages to get across a primal truth: that politics is a game of compromise. Doing the right thing isn't only hard - it's also seldom noticed or significant in the grand scheme of things.

This futility need not lead one to disappointment, however. For it can also instill a sense of humbleness. And, by extention, the capacity for true self forgiveness.

There is no forgiveness for that annoying young citizen when he runs in to the temple and makes everyone assume that the war is over, Neo saved them! Uuugghh!! Doesn't it make you want to punch him, or what!?

A revolutionary trilogy ends with a visually stunning but horribly paced epilogue to the previous movie. We pick up where we left off at the end of The Matrix Reloaded: Neo (Keanu Reeves) in a coma alongside Bane (Ian Bliss) who is actually a copy of Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) going commando to the real world. Meanwhile, Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and the rest of Zion get ready for the final battle to end the war. Meanwhile in the Matrix itself, Neo is wandering around, but long story short, gets back to reality after a philosophical conversation. Neo and Bane wake up, and what follows is what really could have been the second half of a Matrix sequel constructed from Reloaded and this one. Let me explain: Reloaded was the preparation for the battle at Zion, and this was that battle and the conclusion of Neo's character arc for the whole trilogy. These two movies could be edited into one movie lasting 2.75-3 hours when you cut from both, and would have made sense. As a result, this movie's pacing is inconsistent, going from slow build-up to maybe catch the viewer up if they had only seen the first two when each were released. Long story short, it loads really fast, then slow, then fast, like a computer with an inconsistent connection, and it's as annoying as that. Otherwise, the plot coherently wrapped up the story of Neo in a neat little package with a few loose ends should Warner Bros. demand a "Matrix Rebooted" or some other movie. On the bright side, I can happily say I finally came to care about the main cast after three movies. If you think of the trilogy as one story (especially the second and third as two halves of the second half) then this is where Neo, Trinity, Morpheus and one or two others are really characters you care about. It also helps they're shown with more of a sense of humor than they had in the first one. They manage to change the way I see the characters, but what remains consistent are the amazing visual effects, whether it be the last Matrix fights, the Zion battle, etc, the Wachowskis give us a parting gift in the form of all-out CGI fights that work where they're placed. However, in the final battle, I have to say their lightning use was excessive to the point I'm still squinting from it as a result (and I thought JJ Abrams has a problem with lens flares). Also, there was some obvious product placement in the train station early on. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem, but in the world of the Matrix, it felt so out of place, seeing a Powerade poster in a train station in the Matrix itself really took me out of it. I'll give them this though: they had it in green, just like the lighting tone they kept for the Matrix scenes, to remind us which reality we're seeing. What also distinguishes the realities is Don Davis' soundtrack, which does what it's been doing since before Neo took the red pill: conveying the appropriate emotions at the right times. Overall, The Matrix Revolutions is a sloppily paced, and visually stunning-yet-hard-to-look-at-sometimes end to an otherwise grand, deep, philosophical Matrix trilogy, with the characters finally becoming ones I can say "I care if this happens to that character or not." Not every trilogy ends on a high note, but some end on lower ones than others.

the ideas and zion where lame. the visuals where ok. too bad it was not better.
whould have been more interesting to see neo fighting random smiths untill the oracle asimillation came to nearly kill him over stupid zion battle where the humans where sitting ducks for the machines.

The most forgettable among the three movies, Revolutions may still be action-packed and visually impressive, but there is no other way to describe this than stale and derivative.

The Matrix Revolutions decently ties up the everything we've seen in the franchise, even though its story and people-vs-machine action aren't very compelling.

Like it's predecessor, the final installment of The Matrix trilogy is overcomplicated in plot, yet even more excessive in CGI. The entire 2nd half of the film is a huge barrage of special effects, and while it's not a huge bore, the brilliant choreography has been sacrificed in it's place; save for the final battle between Mr. Anderson and Mr. Smith, and it's always a pleasure watching the two stars square off. Fun moments aside, it feels overlong like Reloaded and is just as unnecessary.
