This movie just makes me sad...,
First off, I have to say that the Matrix's "philosophy" is not really philosophy. The Matrix just put an interesting spin on Descartes' (among others) philosophy. I throw this in here because I can't stand people telling me that these movies have such a deep philosophical message, when it's actually just using philosophy as a means for entertainment (not that I'm against this use of philosophy, in fact I rather enjoy it). Second, I wasn't disappointed with "Reloaded", I thought it was fun action flick that made some great promises for "Revolutions". But, with that said...
...Revolutions did not deliver. Most the questions brought up in "Reloaded" were not only unresolved, many of them were never brought up. You want to know how Neo stopped those sentinels at the end of the last movie? Well you won't know, because it's not talked about, except in passing by the Oracle. Moreover, none of the people in the "real world" seem phased by the fact that Neo is able to stop these ultra-super killing machines by sticking up his hand and giving the angry face. Why not put Neo in the middle of Zion and let him do the angry face while all the ultra-super killing machines come in? Perhaps the humans are worried that Neo will go back into a coma, I don't really know. Which proves my point, you just don't really know about anything. We're just supposed to believe this is what happens, which I think is kind of odd for a movie that supposed to make you think. And the final battle between Neo and Agent Smith was anti-climatic! What's up with that! But I will say that the Zion battle was pretty cool, even if it did drag on a bit.
So in closing, this movie really did make me sad. It really lacked the heart the first two movies had; in fact I got the general feeling that the Wackowski bothers just didn't care about this movie at all. It's sad to see such potential go down the drain.
