This is the conclusion of The Matrix trilogy. The fast paced action and suspense continue, with lots of close calls, amazing stunts, and nick of time saves.

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.

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.

bons combates, conceitos sociais e religiosos, mas o roteiro muito mal organizado e com partes sem sentido nenhum, que perde a identidade de matrix

Siempre valoraré en extremo aquellas secuelas que dicen NO a la fórmula original, le ponen un alto y deciden probar cosas nuevas sin fallar a su filosofía primaria... y Matrix: Revoluciones lo logra; no obstante para su desgracia, eso no la salva de estar manchada de múltiples errores.

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.

Just watched for there first time since it was released. I found myself rooting for the machines this time. Monica Belucci is the only redeemable component of this movie

Disappointing in almost every regard, The Matrix Revolutions is neither conclusive enough to be satisfying nor coherent enough to even follow it. The final battle is impressive however.

Could have been so much better

This is a film that everybody has misunderstood. There is so much message to be found here as well as a breadth of different angles to interpret it thematically and from a narrative perspective. The only really terrible thing about it is the Zion fight scenes, which are dull, slow, and quite honestly, lame.

Ok we all know it's a bad movie, but to end the series with the conclusion it has is just a slap to the face.

Hate this movie.But love the original one.
Anyway,love this line â??
"Temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning of purpose!And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love."

This movie is also good. But it wasn't as much about The Matrix as the first or second. Its more focused on Action and Violence. If you watched this and you haven't seen the first or second, the only way to understand what goes on throughout the film is to go watch the whole trilogy, or you will have no room to give your opinion.

To tell the truth I actually enjoyed this film more than "The Matrix Reloaded", probably because it was so Terminator-esque thru most of the movie...of course until the ending which was horrible in so many ways it isn't even worth explaining (though the final Neo vs Smith DragonBall Z like battle was semi-interesting). Of course the other problem is that this film was focused too much on the real world war, as the second film was too focused on events inside the Matrix...all in all the first film is the only one you really need to see.

The 3rd part of The Matrix trilogy, this film delivers a lesser quantity and quality of thrills, spills and visuals as the first two films and certainly lacks the heart and originality of the 1st segment.

Where the 1st film is largely an interpretation of the "Allegory of the Cave" from Plato's "The Republic", this 3rd film parallels The Book Of Revelation from the New Testament.

The complexity of the story line, and overacting continue to erode the Matrix brand despite the special effects.

Where trilogies can either decline (The Godfather) or blossom (The Lord Of The Rings, 1st Star Wars), it is evident that the beauty of the 1st film was that it was so unique and original, written by the Wachowskis who clearly put their heart and soul into the product. Perhaps after striking it rich, and having so much earned now at their disposal, has wore the lustre of the overall trilogy as art. With this installment, this franchise has turned into Hollywood blockbuster.

This film seems too long despite being a normal 2 hours. It is a complex story arc and an inevitable biblical battle of the apocalypse now clearly portrays Neo as Christ and Agent Smith as Satan, something we may have surmised earlier. There is no subtly about this, as the Revolutions title is meant to indicate Revelation of the New Testament. Neo with arms outstretched is clearly meant to indicate a crucified Christ figure. This message may have been presented less blatantly, but understandably here has to be hammered through the thick skulls of the mass consumption Hollywood audience.

A letdown when compared to the other two films in the trilogy and a kind of disappointing closure overall. The film relies too much on the special effects and not enough of the arc involving Neo and Agent Smith.

It tries hard to measure up to the first two, but fails to do so. Not a terrible movie, it has its moments, but is burdened by a lackluster plot and a really corny ending. The characters lose the depth that helped make the previous Matrix movies so great. I had a hard time paying attention through the whole movie, and that's not a good thing. Revolutions ties the trilogy together to a close, but that's pretty much it.

Wasn't as good as the first two, especially the original Matrix, but was nevertheless an epic franchise.

The confusing finale to the trilogy does little to ease the disappointment of the film directly before. We are served with more meaningless CGI ripping the real grit away that made the first film such a surprising sci-fi masterpiece. The story also goes for an over-the-top pseudo religious message that falls flat in every sense. The only real way in which this film works is that it re-injects some of the characters' intrigue by how it builds to it's finale, although that is also a bit of a perplexing anti-climax.
