Editorial Reviews

Condition: New - Neo (Keanu Reeves), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) continue their battle against the machines in THE MATRIX RELOADED, the second chapter of Larry and Andy Wachowski's MATRIX trilogy. As RELOADED begins, Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus arrive in Zion with new crew member Link (Harold Perrineau), and discover that 250,000 dreaded sentinels are close to launching a massive attack on the underground haven for the liberated minds of humanity. When Neo seeks advice from the prophetic Oracle (the late Gloria Foster), their meeting leads to a sorely outnumbered fight with Neo's old nemesis, Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving). While the sentinels advance on Zion, various battles within the Matrix continue to escalate, culminating in an extended highway chase sequence involving Morpheus, Trinity, more imposing agents, and two new adversaries--the relentless white-clad Twins (Adrian and Neil Rayment). With RELOADED, the Wachowski brothers delve deeper into both the realm of the Matrix and the apocalyptic, machine-controlled future reality. Initially giving ample attention to both the romance between Neo and Trinity and to the vast underground city of Zion, the film eventually delivers one stunning set piece after another, with the amazing martial arts sequences and jaw-dropping effects of the first MATRIX elevated to even more astounding heights. In addition to the returning cast of Reeves, Moss, Fishburne, Weaving, and Foster, Perrineau and Jada Pinkett Smith make for welcome new additions, and Monica Bellucci offers up an unforgettably sensual appearance. Larger than the original scale on every level, THE MATRIX RELOADED is a thoroughly entertaining sequel that will leave viewers eager for the trilogy's conclusion, THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only the third film can make it good October 16, 2003
Format:DVD
Warning - Spoilers ahead . . .
When I first saw the film, well, I didn't like it too much. It seemed to be over-packed with CGI Fight scenes and a storyline that didn't really mean anything. While Zion is under attack, Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus must find the keymaster to unlock the doors to the mainframe and end the war, thus freeing Zion.
This entire storyline, to me, seemed contrived, making the fight scenes seem meeningless, their overzealous and sometimes long running effects just becoming tiresome.
But, then I got it. Weeks after seeing it, it finally clicked.
They symbolism of these films is much deeper than the average action-movie viewer is usually given. Yes -- the entire "The One-Saves the world" storyline is meaningless, and that's the point. While paying too much attention to events within the computer-generated fantasy world of the Matrix, the real world, and Zion, fall into greater danger.
We are introduced to two 'french' characters, programs, which exist simply to experience life. While they are among the long list of villians in this piece, they are also the key to the story. They describe the situation in as much in the film, seeing our heroes as mere puppets in a meaningless plot, which, in fact, they are.
While are main characters are engaged in a meaningless task, struggling to achieve goal after goal in a virtual world, events of the real world are dire, and, just perhaps, if more attention were paid to the real-world events, perhaps the situation would not be so dire.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed, wasted opportunity (spoilers) September 26, 2010
By A. Lee
Format:DVD
The Matrix Reloaded isn't a bad film. It's a very watchable, fun film. But the real disappointment is that there was the potential for it to be as fabulous as the first Matrix. It's a squandered opportunity. Sometimes when someone writes a novel that becomes a smash hit, the next isn't edited properly, because the publishing company are eager to keep their cash cow happy. That feels very much what happened here. It feels like nobody kept an eye on what the Wachowskis were doing, nobody tried to keep them focused, nobody steered them towards the story rather than the whizz-bang. And it's a crying shame, because the ideas they had for these films are completely brilliant.

The core of the second movie is the discovery that the entire premise of the first was a lie. The Prophecy is just another layer of control. The machines created Zion, selected the One, and set him up to start the cycle, just to keep people pacified; the naturally rebellious would have an outlet for their energies that could never threaten the status quo at all. Zion and the human resistance are no more nor less than a machine-created pressure valve for the Matrix itself. That idea is brilliantly clever; breathtakingly so. If the movie had been made with that at its heart, with everything else there just to serve the story, you'd have a movie that excelled the first, and could stand alone. But that wasn't what happened. And the failure of that story means that the last movie failed too, because its own story was equally muddled and equally squandered, and that compounded the problems.

I personally think that this is the sequel that stumps all sequels, packing a whallop and never letting you go. But this is one movie that fits each person differently. If you await the same "Bullet Time"-style action in the first one, you will be far from disappointed. If you lust for the intensely mind-warping science-fiction, there's even more in store for you. But there are people who think it's too chitty-chatty, too strenuous on their fragile, little attention spans, or too much of an effort for the Whachowskis to make a few extra bucks. Everyone will see at least one miniscule flaw, but other than that, "The Matrix Reloaded" is the biggest innovation in sci-fi action sequels since "T2".
It starts off with Neo dreaming of Trinity's death. This especially worries him now that the two of them are extra close. Things only get worse when it's realized that the machines threatening Zion are moving in closer and will threaten the city's survival if something isn't done in twelve hours (specifically if something isn't done by Neo, him being The One and all). You've probably heard that Agent Smith now has the ability to copy himself from anyone else in the Matrix. I won't tell you how (I hate spoilers as much as the next guy). I will say that it's an especially cool way to bring him back for the sequel, gining him much more power and presenting a seemingly unsurpassable conflict. There's an superbly done car chase thrown in near the end, plus a good look into the city of Zion and a lot of incredible secrets unveiled about the Matrix. I give it a missing star because there were just a few points in the plot I couldn't understand, but that is absolutely it.
