The Matrix Revolutions Reviews
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.
The dogma in this is sometimes a bit heavy, the close calls often over-the-top, but I didn't mind any of that.
In order to save humanity, Neo does some intense bargaining with the machines and makes the ultimate sacrifice. There's a religious feeling to it, as The One prevails.
Humanity's only city, Zion, is saved.
Had Zion fallen, I would have been annoyed. Had the ending been any less coherent or sensical, I would have been annoyed. Wiping out the machines for good might have been satisfying, but then again, 99% of humanity, which are being cared for by their machine farmers, would have died out, and there is also the matter of interdependence. The machines clearly need humans, but humans may also need the machines?
While having the hero die is annoying, it is also very dramatic. It's hard not to draw a Jesus analogy.
The Matrix Revolutions brings a unique and interesting story to a somewhat mystical conclusion.
La anomalía presentada originalmente en su predecesora, aquí adquiere un mayor peso: existen miniarcos que no son bien desarrollados y que resultan inútiles; y persiste la sensación de que un montaje poco adecuado impidió la oportuna explicación de ciertos eventos y elementos.
