Bleah. If they cut out all the cheesy "fight" scenes, the movie would be about 5 minutes long and 4 minutes of that would suck.

Gotta love the utterly pointless rave scenes. I kind of wanted them to destroy Zion after that.

As one of the few on here, I liked all of the Matrix movies including Reloaded and Revolutions. These movies had some good special effects and good action scenes, and they look and sound really good on Blu-ray. And of course I'm the guy that liked all of the Terminator movies too.

Yeah, the first one, well I still haven't walked out of the theater since, and been blown away by another film. And damn that's almost been 20 years. Just like so many music artists, the first album is magic, just too good. The sophomore slump it is called in the music business. Damn shame. The cgi in those sequels, some scenes were just absolutely terrible. Other than beautiful Monica Bellucci and Lambert Wilson's line concerning wiping your ass with silk, they can have them 2 films back. I hope they don't reboot that franchise, as the next gen Neo will have undergone a sex change.

Yes. Movie one was perfect. He could fly for God sake. He already owned the Matrix. He understood it as fiction and could move about and and in fact destroy it with impunity. It was utterly powerless against him. The movie, and the story, was over. It was amazing.

And then they made a soup of shit after to take our money.

Mrs.BurtonRW and I had the same thought when we saw that rubbish film in the theater.

We were all like, "cool. speechifying." and then like, "drums? WTF?" and then it was all, "why are these people all like the beginning of 2001 before the monolith? Maybe Neo should have taken the blue pill."

I was physically sweaty from embarrassment for the writers when that scene happened in the theater.
