The Matrix Revolutions Reviews
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.
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."
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.
