“The Matrix Revolutions”


BONUS MOVIE REVIEW: Last night, I saw the last “Matrix” movie in the trilogy called “The Matrix Revolutions.” This movie stars Keanu Reeves (Speed, Constantine), Laurence Fishburne (Apocalypse Now, Event Horizon), Carrie-Anne Moss (Memento, Disturbia), Mary Alice (All My Children, Awakenings), Hugo Weaving (Cloud Atlas, V for Vendetta), Clayton Watson (Neighbours, The Animatrix), Jada Pinkett Smith (Collateral, Scream 2), Harold Perrineau (Oz, Lost), Collin Chou (The Forbidden Kingdom, Fearless), Ian Bliss (Stealth, Superman Returns), Harry Lennix (State of Play, Man of Steel), and Anthony Zerbe (License to Kill, Papillon). In this final movie of the epic trilogy, we start where we left off from the second movie with Neo (Reeves) unconscious on board of “the Hammer” with Bane (Bliss) unconscious too. Neo is in fact in limbo which is a subway station that is between the Matrix and the real world. With the help of Morpheus (Fishburne), Trinity (Moss), and Seraph (Chou), they find him and bring him to the Oracle (Alice) who answers Neo’s questions about what he hast to do, what the Architect told him, and the fate of Zion. When he leaves, he starts to get visions of the machine city and decides to take Niobe’s (Smith) ship with Trinity to it to ultimately stop the machines from destroying Zion in less than hours of time. That is not all that is going on in this movie though. Agent Smith (Weaving) is taking over the Matrix fast by cloning himself and ridding the people in it and Neo has to stop him before he tries to take over the real world as well. I thought this movie was good. The story was okay, the acting was great, the action scenes were awesome (there were less than the last movie though), and the special effects were as great as they always were. Cons of this movie would have to be the mixed feelings that I had with the ending. The final fight scene between Agent Smith and Neo was very epic and amazing with the action and special effects put into it from throwing each other through walls and slow-motion punches to the face. I did however get confused at first glance watching it after the fight scene. I eventually understood it though. I didn’t like how it wasn’t all too much of a happy ending in a way for certain characters and how it left many doors open at the very end, suggesting that they could come back to it (which is fine if they just make a really good one). Other than that the ending seemed well-put and fine with this franchise at its closing, but it could have probably been better if they used a different approach. Overall this movie was the third best of the franchise, but it doesn’t mean that it was bad (just like how I put in my review for the second movie) and I recommend anyone to watch it! FINAL SCORE: 86%= Juicy Popcorn
