The Matrix: Revolutions

There’s not too much to say about this one. It’s certainly better than The Matrix Reloaded but not nearly as captivating as the first Matrix. The graphics are outrageous and the various battles are entertaining (ok, I’m a sucker for those fight scenes that involve characters running up walls, floating in slow motion through the air while administering judo moves and defying gravity with a blink of an eye). Almost all of the scenes involving Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Ann Moss) are nauseating - the romantic blah-blah sounds artificial and the acting is far from convincing. Let’s hope this really is the end of the trilogy – it’s time for the Wachowski’s to take on something different.
