hell, it was a lot better than the first one. I am so sorry that half of you pricks with an iq of a watermelon were unable to follow and understand the plot. The complexity of the plot, all the little references and nuances were awesome. The action scenes were cool, but could have been trimmed down a little bit. The ending was the bomb. I am with those who believe that Zion is second/outer/backup matrix, but i am still trying to figure out a few things.
