In this explosive final chapter of the Matrix trilogy, Neo, Morpheus and Trinity battle to defend Zion, the last real-world city, against the onslaught of the machines that have enslaved the human race. And, now as Neo learns more about his heroic powers–including the ability to see the codes of things and the people, he faces the consequences of the choice made in THE MATRIX RELOADED.
THE MATRIX RELOADED had to live up to the original film, which was difficult enough, but just six months later, THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS had to somehow live up to the original, while also making up for a sequel (in Reloaded) that landed with a thud. The result was a culmination of the war between man and machine that left no corner of human experience unexplored, ultimately becoming a sci-fi parable of the journey to pure enlightenment. Sometimes goofy, sometimes overloaded with questionable CGI, always totally sincere, intellectually stimulating and viscerally riveting.
Both sequels, though REVOLUTIONS especially, pushed forward a type of diversity rarely seen in studio blockbusters of the early-2000s. Lana and Lilly Wachowski, who made the film prior to coming out as transgender, loaded the film with strong persons of color and women, while highlighting a distinctive and androgynous style.These are the most carefully considered, fully-realized sci-fi sequels we have ever received and are ready to be revisited and reevaluated accordingly.
