The Matrix Reloaded: Visually stunning, utterly confusing!

"What's going on?" "Man, that was cool." "Jesus, I need a dictionary." These three things went through my mind while I watched The Matrix Reloaded. Keanu Reeves returns as Neo, who goes to the city of Zion along with Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss.) As approaching sentinels get closer and closer to the city, an old enemy (Hugo Weaving) pops up again, determined to destroy Neo. As if that weren't enough, Neo has a dream about Trinity dying and he wonders if it will come true. The premier problem with The Matrix Reloaded is that it's incredibly confusing. For the majority of the film I couldn't understand what was going on or who new characters were. For example, Lambert Wilson plays a French character called Merovingian and after four viewings of the film, I still don't know what purpose his character serves. There is a scene near the end of the film in which you will definitely need a dictionary beside you. People who have seen the film will know that I am talking about the scene with The Architect, (Helmut Bakaitis) who has the widest vocabulary in the universe. I understand that it works for his all-knowing character, but what I don't understand is....well, what the bloody hell he's going on about. An example of a sentence he says is "you are the eventuality of an anomaly, which despite my sincerest efforts I have been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision." What? The saviour of The Matrix Reloaded are it's jaw-droppingly brilliant action sequences. Amazingly choreographed and with top-notch special effects, they are what The Matrix trilogy is famous for. I have to say that The Matrix Reloaded definitely has the best action sequences out of the three films and two of my favourite movie scenes are actually from this. My personal favourite scene is when Neo battles an army of Agent Smiths for about eight minutes. Rob Dougan's music during these action sequences also add to the suspense. Like any sequel, The Matrix Reloaded will always be compared to its predecessor, which is not good for TMR. The first film was more intelligent and intriguing, but the action sequences in the sequel were slightly better. With a confusing plot, The Matrix Reloaded disappoints, but the action sequences are top-notch. I give it 6/10.

Disappointing Sequel

I loved The Matrix. Still do, in fact. So I was extremely disappointed when I finally got to see the much anticipated sequel, The Matrix Reloaded. Now, I didn't expect it to be better than the first, but I at least thought it would be good. Unfortunately, it wasn't. It was total crap. If this movie had been made first, I can't imagine that there would have been any sequels made. Yes, it had some really cool effects, but that's really the only thing this movie has going for it. So first off, the musical score was awful. Not once did match the tone of the scene. Music is supposed to be one of the most important aspects to influencing the emotion state of the audience throughout the film, so why exactly did they make it seem like they were just randomly pulling tracks out of a giant CD pile? Not once did I feel any kind of emotion at all... oh, wait... except for boredom, does that count? I guess I should be a bit more specific. I felt no amazement, no excitement, no sadness, no humor, and no satisfaction. I mean, I didn't even feel any tingling-sensation during the giant orgy scene in cave! The next problem I had was with the extremely long and occasionally pointless fight scenes. In the first movie, the action all seemed to flow naturally throughout the unfolding of the story, but in this movie it feels like the only point is to have action scenes and the story has to do whatever it can to make that happen. How else can you explain the extremely weak lead-up to the much over-hyped freeway chase scene? And how can you explain any of the fighting at all, when at the end of the first movie Neo learns complete control and can take out bad guys from the inside-out? Oh yeah, that's right, they did explain that: "upgrades". The worst of these pointless actions scenes was Neo's fight against the gang of agent Smith's. That scene went on forever! And halfway though, the characters seemed to switch from the actors we all know and love to some impressive looking yet definitely not-realistic computer graphic creations. When the fight was just about over, they cut to a close up of Neo's face, which was shocking because I actually forgot that I was watching a live-action movie. And then what's Neo do to finish this extremely long fight in which it was obvious within the first couple minutes that no one could win? He flies away! Yep, just flies away! Why the hell didn't he just do that in the first place! And lets not forget about the cast of characters. Gone is the mystery surrounding all those we were introduced to in the first movie. Some new allies and villains were introduced, but we are given absolutely no reason to care about any of them. No clues are shared about their pasts that make us want to know more about who they are. No startling or secret ambitions are revealed that make us want to know what will happen to them in the future. They introduce these two ghost-like guys dressed in all white who can phase through solid objects...and their sole reason for being in this movie is to fight. That's it. They introduce this one French dude who is supposedly a bad guy or something... but he really didn't seem very evil to me. When we meet him, he is just sitting there blabbing away about something that made little sense and had nothing to do with the story. Then he gives a piece of cake to a woman which makes her have an orgasm. Oh my gosh, what an evil man! I'm really scared of this diabolical mastermind now! Anyway, I know a lot of my disappointment of this movie comes from knowing how wonderful the first movie is. I bought this sequel on DVD for my wife, and when I watched it again with her it didn't seem nearly as bad as when I first saw it that night in the theater. I'm sure that's because I already knew not to expect anything at all from it, and so I didn't. I just watched it for what it was, a pointless time-wasting action flick.

Deeply foolish, for trying to make out that separation should feel saved by criticism

The first sequel, to the 1999 classic The Matrix, is a movie which appears to sum up being a quality that's independent of quality. A dependence that's dependent. The dependent is corrupt. However, the actual corrupt state of the dependence is exempt from the exactness of being corrupt. The corruption itself is something which is saved due to the identification. The need to identify the corrupt as the corrupt is what prevents criticism of the corrupt. The corrupt can't be criticised, because of the fact that the corrupt is real. Corruption being real, means that corruption is a separate reality - corruption is simply the fact of separation. In The Matrix Reloaded, the basic fact of separation is saved from being corrupt because it needs to be identified. Having to identify the separate as the separate is what lets the separate be separate. And this is why The Matrix Reloaded is a pathetic type of movie. It doesn't seem right, and it doesn't seem sane that a reality has to be noticed and observed by another reality just so that it can exist. If separation is real, then that should surely mean that anything is left alone. The truth, is that it's impossible for separation to happen without any observation - and once again, this is why The Matrix Reloaded is a truly silly and naive type of film. The movie is separation as a fact, and yet, it's also shooting itself in the foot by overruling the common sense that separation needs observation. Separation needs observation! So in that case, why is The Matrix Reloaded representing separation as fact while hurting the fact of observation? What gives The Matrix Reloaded the right to do that? To recap: The Matrix Reloaded is the fact of separation. However, it's also a case of undermining the truth that criticism is a prerequisite for separation. Separation would be impossible without any sort of criticism: The Matrix Reloaded should know a lot better than to act as if separation should feel privileged that it's being criticised. All in all, The Matrix Reloaded is a very misguided continuation to the 1999 source material. Reloaded is a very irritating film
