Matrix Trilogy ending a complete bust
now i don't know about you guys, but i saw "The Matrix Revolutions", the third Matrix and i just have to say that the ending wasn't anything that i suspected... and not in a good kind of a twist, either. just like the second one, filmcritic.com even states "The first half-hour of Reloaded is so limp you can safely skip it altogether."... the same opinion of Revolutions. all-in-all, all three of the Matrix movies were good, the fight scenes, even the plot of the movie... but it seemed the more it got into it, the more the plot seemed to fade away into more of just a "video game based on violence"
~ i'm not sure about you guys, but i feel the "Revolutions" was a complete bust with a suprisingly "shiznity" ending.

I'm sorry Mr. Lakranski, but the ending to matrix 3 went ahead just as planned. Everything has a purpose, and the purpose of the movie was to end the trilogy, which it did.

well i'm just sayin that i think the ending of Revolution and the ending of the trilogy was kinda cheesy in a way.

Im afraid that for once I must agree with you Cean, I too felt that the third movie in its entirety was quite a disappointment. The begginning was ok, the end fight was ok, and I found myself in the middle of the movie looking for a clock to see when it was gonna be over. I recommend anyone who likes the matrix to see the third one 'cause you gotta see how they end it, and I do feel that you should see it on the big screen to get the full feel of all the special effects....but for me the movie was really a big let down. Not enough jacking in. To me aside from all the religious back theories and such, the slow motion fighting, slow motion bullets wizzing by is what the matrix action is all about. Not space ship and mechwarrior battles in the planets core. Too much zion. I saw enough of zion in reloaded thanks.

The matrix trilogy ending was cool. I thought that it was great that they had departed from the "fake" world of the matrix and into the "real" blood and guts world. It seemed like a fine ending and a fine movie to me.

You people and your obsession with fighting. The matrix trilogy was a mindgame, completely mental. It was an examination of reality, both real reality (if there is such a distinction) and percieved reality (ditto), and that all happens in your head. Personally, I liked how the entire cast of characters shifted with their levels of importance and power throughout the trilogy, or our perception of their importance and power, I should say. The special effects, the big machines, the slow mo jump fifty feet fight scenes, all that was cool, but if that was all you were looking for, then just like the "batteries" in the movie, you're all missing something. A big something.

The third Matrix was way better than the second one I think. The first one tops them all in my opinion, since it's the most explanitory (hence being the first of the Matrix Trilogy).
