I think that the second movie is the best of the three. So I say that it was good to make them. If they did not make three everyone would have been mad that they did not fallow up on the story is it was a no win kind of thing if you ask me.

Hmmm. I personally didn't like the 2nd one. After seeing all of them I wished they had left it alone with just one. But if they had done that then, I may have wanted a sequel. Kind of a paradox thing going on.

The Matrix sequels were inevitable. Seeing as how the Wachowski brothers saw how much money spawned from the first installment.
But, the sequels should've been as thought-provoking as the first. There wasn't anything to boggle the ming in Reloaded/Revolutions. Mostly just a lot of dialogue and eye candy effects to keep you hooked into the Matrix(no pun intended), so you would buy the soundtrack, The Animatrix, and Enter the Matrix.

That is where you are wrong DirectorFitz. The Matrix was always conceived as a trilogy. the Wachowski Bros, had written The Matrix, Matrix Reloaded, and Matrix Revolutions years before they were made into movies. They wrote all three stories on yellow notepads. When the Wachowski's pitched the trilogy to the WB, they liked it and they wanted to do the whole trilgoy, but they were unsure if it would be successful. So they told them that if the Matrix was a hit, they would greenlight Reloaded and Revloutions. I think the reason the sequals were not well received is because of the marketing of the sequals, and the loss of Lorenzo Di Boniventura, the man in charge of the WB at the time the first matrix movie was made. When the WB fired him, they made a big mistake.

The cult fandom of the Original matrix would have been sustained if there were no sequals. The problem with the second two movies was that they were trying to appeal to an MTV audience. the fact is, MTV ruins everything sacred.

The first matrix is by far the greatest, then Revolution and Reloaded far far far behind.
What made the first matrix the best? dodging bullets! pretty much the first time we've all seen bullet time sfx at its best! and i think lastly that the fact that agents are hugely feared made it better.
