The Matrix: Reloaded (2003)

Neo is troubled by dreams that appear to depict the death of Trinity and knows that only one person can help him unravel things: the Oracle. Meanwhile, the machines are boring their way inexorably toward Zion. Morpheus thinks the key to their salvation lies inside The Matrix, but may his beliefs be entirely misplaced?

8/10

Genuinely stunning but you may have no idea why what’s going on is going on. Only Revolutions would reveal the extent of the story’s coherence (the pretentious philosophical content is interesting but probably evades comprehension on first viewing) but the presentation is absolutely jaw-dropping. Every action scene is fantastic with clear choreography, technique and topography. The standout scenes are the Infinity Smith brawl and the Keymaker chateau fight and freeway chase; the latter is among the greatest action scenes ever filmed featuring, I think still uniquely, our heroine riding a motorbike full pelt the wrong way against four lanes of busy traffic.

This movie contains sexual swear words, Sex scene (Carrie-Anne Moss & Keanu Reeves), nudity, inferred / animated female nudity and orgasm, Extreme fantasy violence, some graphic violence, gory and unpleasant scenes, Offensive gesturing
