Agent Smith= Good

First movie= Good

All things that followed the first one= Bad.

Maybe if we're lucky we'll get an inverse of what happened with Star Wars, twenty years later we'l get sequels that kick ass  :D

Just watch reloaded without the sex scene and the Archiatect, and it's good.

Most of the battle scenes were really good, but the rest of the movies weren't really good.

The problem with the Matrix series was that to 'mystery' of the matrix was effectively done with at the end of the first movie. Only hardcore geeks and fans were going to really care about the second and third episode 'background story'. To deliver such a story in a pair of 120 minute chunks that was impossible. Now, you have to add the 'love story' and all the other odds and ends to it as well.

'The Matrix' 'trilogy' really isn't just the three movies. In fact when you watch the three movies you spend a lot of time wondering 'what part of the story did I just miss'? The reason, MATRIX was a multi-media story based on animation (The Animatrix), Video Games, and a few selected short stories. In theory... neat idea.. in practice a disaster.

The annoying boy in the thrid movie that keeps praising Neo as his savior, Animatrix
How the muscle car got behind the semi in the second movie, The video game.
The 'message from the Osirus', the Animatrix
etc...

Having seen it all, it makes a lot more sense, and you get a better story. But people want to be entertained... forcing them through a stilted video game, not a great idea.

Does anyone know if any of the fan sites or what not have done anything with the other versions of the matrix. Like martics 4.0,(because there were other versions of the matrix before the events of the movie took place). I liked the matrix universe and i think it previous versions of the matrix can undo the damage the 2nd and 3rd movies (mostly the 3rd, i liked most of the 2nd).

I didnt even bother to watch the third film. The second one was pointless and from what Ive heard they compromised their original concept for the sake of making it a trilogy.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I do like the second one from an action movie standpoint.

I do not consider any of them having anythign to do with the first movie.

The third one was crap and a half...except for the mech battle in zion.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.
