Considering the lofty expectations that preceded it,The Matrix Reloadedtriumphs where most sequels fail. It would be impossible to match the fresh audacity that madeThe Matrixa global phenomenon in 1999, but in continuing the exploits of rebellious Neo (Keanu Reeves), Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) as they struggle to save the human sanctuary of Zion from invading machines, the codirecting Wachowski brothers have their priorities well in order. They offer the obligatory bigger and better highlights (including the impressive "Burly Brawl" and freeway chase sequences) while remaining focused on cleverly plotting the middle of a brain-teasing trilogy that ends withThe Matrix Revolutions. The metaphysical underpinnings can be dismissed or scrutinized, and choosing the latter course (this is, after all, an epic about choice and free will) leads to astonishing repercussions that madeReloadedan explosive hit with criticsandhardcore fans alike. As the centerpiece of a multimedia franchise, this dynamic sequel ends with a cliffhanger that virtually guarantees a mind-blowing conclusion.--Jeff Shannon

Well, they got the
As in what a load for those who didn't catch the sarcasam.      Everyone knows that The Matrix is one of those trend setting, change the way we look at it pieces of movie making and likewise ANY kind of follow up would have been tough to match what the original did.  I REALLY hated giving this one a low score but when you cover up the lack of new ideas with as much pretentious talk and pointlessness I really don't feel so guilty anymore.   …

Neo flies. Trinity dies. Morpheus cries (almost). These are just three of the many scenes of The Wachowski Brothers' "The Matrix Reloaded", one of the most anticipated sequels of the last decade. The film begins with Neo, played by Keanu Reeves. Neo is plagued by nightmares involving the death of lover Trinity (Carrie Anne-Moss). He believes he is seeing the near future. After a few neat CGI-filled scenes that show that to us, we find Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) (the latter of …

Pros: Some nice FX     Cons: Bad acting, dull plot, and bad setup to the FX/     The Bottom Line: Not as good as the first and a real disappointment.     Amidst productions delays resulting from the deaths of supporting players and injuries to lead actors, “Matrix Reloaded” has arrived. The wave of hype surrounding the film resembled the “Star Wars” and “Harry Potter” releases, and is the first of two sequels to …
