Remember how excited everyone was for the Matrix sequels? And then they saw The Matrix Reloaded and thought, “huh… so I have to watch another one of these, I guess?” Talk about the difference between quality in an original film and its sequels, the Matrix trilogy is a textbook example of the normal progression.
Everybody who didn’t die in the first movie are back, and they’re joined by a bunch of other crews that are exactly the same as them! They have to fight to keep their homeland safe from the evil robots who are going to destroy them, and the key to all that is to get Keanu Reeves to go talk to a bunch of people about a high schooler’s understanding of philosophy. Oh boy.
There are a couple decent action sequences in this film, and those are honestly the only things worth watching this movie for. The elaborate highway chase sequence where they’re doing an insane amount of stunts all at once and it feels really tense, that’s good shit. It also helps that nobody’s opening their idiot mouths and talking about the Choice you have to make about Choosing which Choice is the Choicest.
