Keanu Reeves returns as the hunky cyber-messiah Neo. The machines have devised an army of 250,000 drones ("one for every man, woman and child" in Zion) for the ultimate elimination of humanity. Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), who scooped Neo up in the...more

When the Matrix first came out I was blown away. It easily hit my list of best movies and second best science fiction movie next to Blade Runner. It perfectly combined themes that were almost totally doomed to fail, kung fu, gun fights, and...more

I didn't quite know what to expect going into "The Matrix Reloaded," and I came out with mixed feelings. This is a sequel to the 1999 film that enthralled audiences. I was a bit underwhelmed by the original, and so I figured the sequel would either be...more

by David N. Butterworth (Rating: 2/4)
With 1999's "The Matrix," Andy and Larry Wachowski created a post apocalyptic cyberpunk mind trip of a world unlike any we'd seen before. The film was fresh and smart, combining Big Ideas with arresting, groundbreaking visuals in an experience that...more

The Matrix Reloaded Review
by Jerry Saravia (Rating: 2/4)
When the original "Matrix" was released in theatres, I had no idea it was going to become a pop phenomenon. I had intensely disliked the first time out, and received floods of angry emails saying I had no idea what I was missing. It seemed firmly...more

Remember that ultra cool red pill/blue pill, once-you-go-through-the-door-nothing-will-ever-be-the-same-again scene / shot in the original Matrix? Well, there's nothing remotely like that in The Matrix, Reloaded, so be forewarned... The plot...more

The Matrix Reloaded Review
by Jon Popick (Rating: 7/10)
It only takes about 45 seconds for The Matrix Reloaded to grab you by the throat and slap you across the face, and I think that's the way most fans of the original film would have it. On the opposite end of the spectrum, those fans will need to come to...more

One of the main things that struck me as I waited through the credits to see the brief teaser for Matrix Revolutions is that Reloaded does not waste many frames. Neither does it waste much dialogue. This is one every efficient two and a half-hour...more

Forget all of those 'negative' reviews. I've never really been one to follow the crowd. In fact I'll admit that there are often times that I do like to play Devil's advocate just for the sake of arguing. When the first Matrix film came out in 1999 we had...more

When I saw the trailer for The Matrix Reloaded last week, I was extremely skeptical about what the final product would be like. It seemed like the Wachowski Brothers might have gone overboard in cramming CGI effects and flashy fight choreography in an...more

Consider "The Matrix: Reloaded" a significant upgrade to the cutting-edge, sci-fi, 1999 original. Happily, the film does live up to the hype. And the tone is darker and more epic in scope (although the plot's fine points are annoyingly crammed into the...more

The Matrix Reloaded Review
by Steve Rhodes (Rating: 3.5/4)
The X-MEN series is just candy for kids compared to THE MATRIX trilogy, a sci-fi series for grown-ups. And, whereas X2 flagged as often as it rocked, THE MATRIX RELOADED has few dead spots. more
