Product Overview

Neo. Trinity. Morpheus. They and other heroes stand on the brink of victory or annihilation in the epic war against the Machines in the stunning final chapter of The Matrix trilogy. For Neo, that means going where no human has dared -- into the heart of Machine City and into a cataclysmic showdown with the exponentially more powerful renegade program Smith. For writer-directors The Wachowski Brothers and producer Joel Silver, that means soaring beyond the amazing visual inventiveness of the first two films. The revolution is now: The Matrix Revolutions.

Review The Matrix Revolutions represents a disappointing way for the science fiction trilogy to bow out. Overlong and underwhelming, The Matrix Revolutions reinforces the thinking that it's a rare movie series in which the final chapter is the strongest. In this installment, the intelligence and ideas that formed one of the cornerstones of the original The Matrix, and were still in evidence in The Matrix Reloaded, have been shunted aside in favor of computer-generated action that makes about 1/3 of this movie look like a video game on the big screen...When The Matrix Revolutions works, it does so as eye candy...The battle sequences may not be as involving as those in, say, Star Wars, but they are done with enough technical savvy to retain the attention of most viewers. And those who are on hand just to see a big-budget special effects extravaganza will be satisfied. Anyone hoping to experience the blend of science fiction, philosophy, and edgy action that characterized the previous two movies will be disappointed. Nevertheless, for completists who need to find out how it ends, The Matrix Revolutions provides answers (although not necessarily to all questions) and doesn't cop out when it comes to the final resolution.

Review Matrix cultists can breathe easy: The epic cyber trilogy ends with more of a bang than a whimper in Matrix Revolutions. Whereas Matrix Reloaded struck many viewers as willfully obscure in its tiresome emphasis on questions of choice and destiny, Matrix Revolutions thankfully holds the pretentious philosophizing in check. With this film, the Wachowski brothers recapture the sense of wonder that made The Matrix so startling and fresh in 1999...The thrilling centerpiece of Matrix Revolutions is the machines' relentless assault on Zion. Swarms of tentacled Sentinels descend upon the subterranean civilization in tautly edited and technically dazzling sequence reminiscent of the attack on the Death Star in Star Wars (1977)...Although Matrix Revolutions ends on a rather hopeful note, it ultimately envisions a grim future for humankind. The Wachowski brothers' dystopian vision cleverly synthesizes such disparate sources as Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, mythology, the Bible, and the fiction of Philip K. Dick (Blade Runner), among others, to depict the perils of technology run amuck. Intriguing, frequently confusing, but mostly entertaining, Matrix Revolutions wraps up the trilogy's narrative loose ends in a reasonably satisfying fashion.

Quotes
Michael Szymanski, Zap2It.com A satisfying action-packed conclusion to one of the most incredible sci-fi mythologies put on film.
Richard Corliss, Time ...ends not with a whimper but with a blast of light. Thus the fabulous original film has found an honorable way to sign off.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times A terrific action achievement. Andy and Larry Wachowski have concluded their trilogy with all barrels blazing.
Ty Burr, Boston Globe ...the most muscular, hard-core special-effects rama-lama yet to hit the screen.
William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer ...faster and more involving than Reloaded and it rounds off the premise and themes of the trilogy in a surprisingly satisfying way.
