Review for The Matrix

Summary for Reloaded: Neo and his allies race against time before the machines discover the city of Zion and destroy it. While seeking the truth about the Matrix, Neo must save Trinity from a dark fate within his dreams.

Summary for Revolution: The human city of Zion defends itself against the massive invasion of the machines as Neo fights to end the war at another front while also opposing the rogue Agent Smith.

Review: Starting with Reloaded it begins with a slow past. While the first movie set up the world, rules, and hooks you in with all the action. Reloaded dumps talk of philosophy on the audiences. Mainly about chose and free will. these themes follow in to the third movie.
There are some cool action and some of those scenes are a bit ridiculous. Some have criticized as being weightless in it CGI effects. Well you can argue that it early 2000s or it is the matrix, just go along with. There is no spoon.

Now Revolution is the lowest rated of the trilogy. I can see way, it could have been a better pasting. Some of the scenes drag on longer then they should. It does wrap up the series nicely. Then been talk of a fourth movie and I not sure how that going to play out without being a repeat of the first movie. The sequel declare that Nero is not just the "one". There will more the "ones" to come as long as their people that will rise up against the machines in an endless loop.

On the surface The Matrix a pure entertaining action movies while going deeper than other movies in the genre.
