Starring Keanu Reeves, Hugo Weaving, Carrie-Ann Moss, Laurence Fishburne, Monica Bellucci, Jada Pinkett Smith
Neo discovers that somehow he is able to use his powers into the real world too and that his mind can be freed from his body, as a result of which he finds himself trapped on a train station between the Matrix and the Real World. Meanwhile, Zion is preparing for the oncoming war with the machines with very little chances of survival. Neo's associates set out to free him from The Merovingian since it's believed that he is the One who will end the war between humans and the machines. What they do not know is that there is a threat from a third party, someone who has plans to destroy both the worlds.

Finally. This is the film that should have been Matrix 2. I realize many people hate on it, but I’m not entirely sure why. This is the installment that actually has something happen in it. Several things even. The culmination of every storyline that was set up and unanswered in the sequel… which was basically everything that happened in the 2nd film. And most of those storylines are dropped – while our characters remain basically the same – except for Neo who had a chat with Colonel Sanders, err, I mean “The Architect.” Something that didn’t need to be dragged out as long as it was in the second film. Regardless, this film holds within it some great character growth, emotionally significant action sequences and more importantly – resolution.
While we’re not 100% rid of the pointless dribble of raising questions and exposition of the 2nd film, there is much more significant events that occur in Revolutions that are not only relevant to where we will end, but capture the heart and spirit of the first film. There is also several moments we’ve been waiting for – and some that we weren’t expecting. Smith having a conversation with the Oracle for one of them. Obviously the best exchange is Smith fighting Neo as the grand conclusion. But in addition to all of that, the story reverts back to the originality of the first installment. People in the matrix who defy gravity and can walk through walls, dance rave scenes with people walking through in gun triangles and my favorite of the newest ideas: A computer program walking around in the mind of the human. Yes, this was started in the 2nd film, but it really gets to the heart of it in this film – taking it to it’s most grand potential. At times the film gets preachy and over the top religious, but it’s not without reason. It is important as the entire franchise is based within what people believe – the core of all storytelling.
Once again, the entire cast continues with their same old song and dance. And once again, there is always an anomaly (I learned that word from these movies, tee-hee). Hugo Weaving once again stands atop the mighty mountain with his character Agent Smith. There is a growth from his character’s departure from the first film into something much more violent and unpredictable, while still maintaining the core belief of the character. He’s a balance to our hero and is just as enjoyable as any bad guy in the history of film.
Somehow I get the feeling the Wachowski’s felt a though Reloaded was necessary in order to set the stage for the this film, a failed thought, but what matters is we got the conclusion here. And we got a whole slew of new and original situations and sequences and ideas to accompany it. This is the film that was really needed to be told. And I congratulate them on not trying to prolong the franchise any more than they already had.
Being shot back to back, this film follows the footsteps of the 2nd film in it’s overly expensive color saturation. Even the lighting in this film seems out of place – with one exception. There is a moment of contrast where Neo and Trinity break through the clouds of the real world and see the real sun. Somehow, even when dealing with the Matrix’s “sun”, it’s still a breath of fresh air. The color plays such a role in creating that moment that it almost justifies being subjected to the 2nd film.
