Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Sci-Fi - Like the first two films, this is an effects-heavy science fiction/action-adventure that tackles some heady ideas. Intense violence as well as some language make the film inappropriate for children.

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "The Matrix Revolutions represents a disappointing way for the science fiction trilogy to bow out. Overlong and underwhelming, The Matrix Revolutions reinforces the thinking that it’s a rare movie series in which the final chapter is the strongest. In this installment, the intelligence and ideas that formed one of the cornerstones of the original The Matrix and were still in evidence in The Matrix Reloaded, have been shunted aside in favor of computer-generated action that makes about 1/3 of this movie look like a video game on the big screen.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "Still, in a basic and undeniable sense, this is a good movie, and fans who have earned their credit hours with the first two will want to see this one and graduate. To the degree that I was able to put aside my questions, forget logic, disregard continuity problems and immerse myself in the moment, "The Matrix Revolutions" is a terrific action achievement.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Average "The Matrix trilogy is, ultimately, less than the sum of its parts, but its best moments are high water marks in modern-day movie mythology.''

Newsday  Full Review
Average "Anyone who's seen a sex film in health class can figure out the symbolic intent of all this, although it doesn't really make sense - a creation myth about destruction? Confronting "Matrix Revolutions," you need your own veil of unreality just to wade through the misappropriated metaphors."

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Very strong opinions from the target audience of males. Lots of very high reviews from all ages with virtually no low opinions and very few negative moviegoer comments. This is obviously a movie I can highly recommend!

As for the ladies, teens thought it was great, but the twentysomething crowd had very mixed opinions. Only about half truly enjoyed it. The adult females fared better with well over half indicating the movie was great.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In The Matrix Revolutions, the final explosive chapter in the Matrix trilogy, the epic war between man and machine reaches a thundering crescendo: the Zion military, aided by courageous civilian volunteers like Zee (NONA GAYE) and the Kid (CLAYTON WATSON), desperately battles to hold back the Sentinel invasion as the Machine army bores into their stronghold. Facing total annihilation, the citizens of the last bastion of humanity fight not only for their own lives, but for the future of mankind itself.

But an unknown element poisons the ranks from within: the rogue program Smith (HUGO WEAVING) has cunningly hijacked Bane (IAN BLISS), a member of the hovercraft fleet. Growing more powerful with each passing second, Smith is beyond even the control of the Machines and now threatens to destroy their empire along with the real world and the Matrix. The Oracle (MARY ALICE) offers Neo her final words of guidance, which he accepts with the knowledge that she is a program and her words could be just another layer of falsehood in the grand scheme of the Matrix.

With the aid of Niobe (JADA PINKETT SMITH), Neo and Trinity choose to travel farther than any human has ever dared to go – a treacherous journey above ground, across the scorched surface of the earth and into the heart of the menacing Machine City. In this vast mechanized metropolis, Neo comes face to face with the ultimate power in the Machine world – the Deus Ex Machina – and strikes a bargain that is the only hope for a dying world.

The war will end tonight, with Neo's destiny and the fate of two civilizations inexorably tied to the outcome of his cataclysmic confrontation with Smith.
