I'm finding it harder and harder to get excited about sequels these days. The mindless, barely-able-to-find-a-plot blockbusters are one thing... but for movies that were groundbreaking when they first came out, it's a real shame to see the supposed franchise take a detour for the worst.
Today I saw "The Matrix: Revolutions", and shall I say that I was not impressed with the way this series ended... not in the least. I wasn't a big fan of the second movie, but now I see "Reloaded" standing head and shoulders above the third. What once started off as a very interesting and somewhat mysterious story line in the original "Matrix", has turned into awful writing and worse acting. Sigh, yes even the effects this go around were nothing new.
Go see it, just to say you've seen the entire trilogy, and see it for the giant war in Zion... but other than that, duck and run. Quickly.
