The Matrix Reloaded, created by The Wachowskis: a Film Review

Six months have passed since the disastrous end to their last mission.  Neo has settled in the crew, he and Trinity are falling in love, and though things are still treacherous with the outside world things seem to have begun to settle down a bit.

When Morpheus receives a message calling all the ships of Zion to an emergency meeting, their little bubble of moderate tranquility is shattered.  The Sentinels have found Zion and sent an army to tunnel to the city.

With less than 72 hours to save their world it is up to Morpheus, Neo, and Trinity to get everyone together to fight the machines.  It is time to return to Zion.

Review (contains spoilers):

This is another excellent film. Not as good as the first but still pretty spectacular.  I highly recommend watching the Animatrix before this because you get some of the stories that are mentioned in the movie that aren’t super necessary but having that depth made me appreciate it more.

Just like with the first movie I think I’m honestly going to have to rewatch this a few times this year and update the review when I can actually form proper thoughts. 

The style the Wachowskis created is so unique (and I’ve worked in film/television on the geek circuit for several years…done editing….worked on some weird projects…) and I just can’t really get a proper grip on everything other than: that was so cool!  Which I guess is fair but not really a great review.

But yes…this film is just as cool as the first…it only fell a little short currently due to the fact that you really should watch some animated shorts before proceeding onto this film…
