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
PROFANITY: 12 S-words, 13 GD's, a few others. SEX/NUDITY: One very quick scene, you could easily miss, that shows a female breast. VIOLENCE: Fights, shootings, stabbings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco use. ACTION: Chases, fights, combat sequences. COMEDY: An occasional wisecrack;nothing off-color.

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic
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.''
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.''

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
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

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