Missing info

The review under the sex catagory was incomplete. They neglect to mention the sex club scene complete with nipple twisting and strap ons. Would have been good to know before watching with the kids.

Action Packed Finale

It seems as though every Matrix movie has more action than the last. And this one, if any, proves that. There are many scenes of prolonged, large scale battles that can get very intense, maybe too much so for younger viewers. The language however, seems to have taken a different turn. There is less profanity in Revolutions than there was in either of the other two movies. And as for sex, none is present. There is only a couple scenes of passionate kissing and that is it. Overall, the movie was satisfying in regards to ending the trilogy. It tied up all the loose ends and was very much worth the watch. But it is also true that the script was a lot weaker. The producers basically replaced potential good dialogue with more action than The Matrix Reloaded and called it a day. So if someone were to evaluate this film by itself instead of with its accompanying other two movies, that someone might be disappointed. Nevertheless, Matrix fans are sure to love it and should watch it for sure. Just be mindful, if watching with kids, of how much action they are used to, because again, it gets very intense at times.
