The Matrix: Revolutions (2003)

Neo is not in a coma, but he’s not conscious either. A quick trip to the Oracle, who has been forced to change her appearance to avoid capture by the Merovingian, reveals that he is in an isolated section of The Matrix controlled by Merovingian. Meanwhile, Zion itself has less than a day to go before the machines finally breach the city dock and Loc has to prepare defenses the best he can.

6/10

A bit of a stubbed toe of a movie. It feels like The Matrix tripped and fell at the last hurdle. While the story is fine, the brothers seem to have run out of steam and energy and this is reflected in the generally clichéd script, sometimes overly frenetic, unfocused direction and a truly dismal final action sequence. Only Hugo Weaving rises above. On second viewing, however, the disappointment isn’t so severe and an entertaining and spectacular sci-fi battle movie is eventually revealed. But nothing more.

This movie contains mild swear words, sado-masochistic sensuality, extreme violence, graphic violence, gory and extremely unpleasant scenes
