    Just saw Reloaded and Revolutions back to back (for the first time)..

    Jesus Christ was that some bad movie making...

    Im almost speechless at how bad those two were. This is a prime example of two sequels that should have never been made. Think Godfather 3.

    Goddamn it was lame.. "if you want to do this Neo .. you have to fight me.."/... "If you want to do this Neo ... you have to Kiss me..".. some of that stuff was so bad that I was literally LOL at it. Its pure adolecent contrived BS.

    I totally dont get this idea of these ships floating around the sewers.. they cant fight or defend themselves.. what the hell are they doing?.. exploring?

    :rant2: :rant2: :rant2:

    Thanks for reading..

    Broadcast depth has to be reached, in order to enter the matrix.

    Take the last two for what they were...


    No brainer action movies with special effects up the ass and you will like them ..

    I still like the matrix series..... but have the same feelings as the majority

    The only bad thing was the dialogue.

    Sophy: "So you're from the matrix?"
    Neo (keanu voice) "Yes. No. Maybe."

    Neo: "I must take your ship."
    Trinity: "What?"
    Neo: "What?"

    Neo: "You cant die."
    Trinity: "Yes I can.

    Because you did not follow the story.

    maybe because Smith took over the Oracle? :squint:


    did you even pay attention?


    and both 2&3 sucked. It was more about making money and trying too hard to push the effects than actually having a good plot.

    How was the plot any different?

    We learn everything we need to know in the initial film, two and three just continue it.

    Everyone overcomplicated the story before both sequels come out. I remember some people saying some theories of what could happen.

    like smith and neo join up to destroy the machines...

    I think that for the most part it was a great trilogy. The reason why the last 2 parts sucked for some people is because they were over-hyped. Whenever anything is over-hyped it never lives up to its expectations.

    specific points in the plot were worthless. Esp. in Reloaded- the fight scenes were forced and served no purpose.

    in the beginning, agents come into the alley. they fight and Neo leaves

    after Neo meets with the Oracle, smith(s) fight him, and he leaves. they just stand around.

    it just seems like the bros said.. "hey, there was a lot of dialogue here, let's throw in a random fight scene with some techno"

    The only explanation I've heard that eases the situation is that they were supposed to be more like live-action anime than regular movies. The over the top action, rushed logic and vague explanations pretty much fit that genre.

    Other than that, I watch the first movie repeatedly. Wish I hadn't bothered to buy the 2nd & 3rd. The first time I saw The Matrix in the theater, with NO IDEA what the movie was about (thought it was going to be horror, not much had been said about it) was about the BEST movie experience ever.
    "No one can be TOLD what the Matrix is..." That's all you heard about the first when it came out, with the Matrix background, no clips. Awesome.

    Definitley would have been better if they left the series at the first one.

    My imagination > those 2 shitty sequels

    They didn't answer a god damned thing, they were long winded and even the fight scenes drug on too long for my liking a couple different times. I think the most disapointing thing about the sequels was that they didn't have the element of surprise like the first one had. You saw the first one and you were like :wtf: The second two were about as exciting as reading a shakespeare play in class.

    :werd: ...and when you were done watching it, you wanted to watch it AGAIN. The next two are just painful to watch the first time, much less a second viewing.

    Don't forget Episode III. It may not be out yet, but the infamous fight between Kenobe and Anakin is going to own the four movies mentioned above.

    Neo is smith's opposite. Neo created smith. They're tethered in a sense, so if you kill one, you can kill both. with both alive, they are unstoppable.
