The first Matrix is pretty much a complete story - Smith explodes and Neo explains that he stays behind explaining that he aims to show those people a world without boundaies (aka to free them), an idea reassured by the ending scene with the 'System Failure' message.

I agree that the second Matrix was nice, but the third ruined it all! It`s so disappointing - Trin dies, Neo transforms into ... light ... I guess...

I agree that the first movie was complete in and of itself. In fact the very first time I saw the movie, I thought to myself, after Neo flew off, he went on to destroy the machines and eventually humanity became what it once was. Then Reloaded and Revolutions came along, as one long movie remember? They changed my perspective on filmmaking in general, especially Revolutions. The war was ended, but did they really win? You know what I mean? They're still gonna be living the same way, just without the threat of annhilation. I expected and clear "Humans win!" ending, and instead got something that was thought provoking. ON that point, I felt reloaded was very thought provoking, making facts like there were more ones before Neo, setting up more controls that the humans didn't even knew existed! Revolutions was just a contiuation of reloaded, no need to delve deeper into the rabbit hole, things were already set into motion from reloaded. I enjoyed The Matrix it was possibly the best piece of cinema I have seen since I have been alive. Reloaded and Revolutions didn't live up to the originality, but it continued the story, which I didn't mind.

The endings may no have been crowd-pleasingly spectacular, but they were unique.

I think they made the Matrix as it was supposed to be made..think about it:

Matrix one: was about birth
Matrix two: was about life
Matrix three: was about death

It all makes sense.

The franchise perhaps but the film stands alone as being a great movie. Nothing can change that.

Just joined and, being a massive Matrix fan, I sought out the Matrix forum first!

So as to provoke discussion, you can check out my reviews for all three films in my sig.

I don't believe the 'sequels' were really sequels at all. They were continuations of an existing story. The way I think of it, The Matrix is Neo's origin story whilst Reloaded and Revolutions are his journey as a superhero. The film also deals with incredibly complex themes and ideas and does it all while waving the banner of an action adventure sci-fi movie.

The trilogy truly is a misunderstood modern masterpiece.

The sequels were worth watching but they killed the mystery in the original's storyline (one of the best things of the first movie).
