extremely entertaining but in a whole, relatively weak

The Matrix Revolutions is very entertaining while watching in the theater, mostly because of an amazing use of technology and the development of some characters (noteably Niobe), and because the tremendous amount of violent action adds to the rush of being in the theater. However, its plot and dialogue were ultimately unsatisfying. After the excitement of the first Matrix, its many vitues, which included complexity and simplicity molded into one amazing plot, and its unforgettable characters, were hard to beat. Revolutions finally finishes with a bitter-sweet end that leaves you missing the first film of this declining trilogy.

The Matrix Trilogy Goes Out With A Bang

Matrix Revolutions is the best possible conclusion to the Matrix trilogy. It pulls no fast ones, and leaves viewers with a resolution, but still unrest. This is one of the few movies, such as Phsyco minus the end phsyciatrist and SIgns, that keeps building tension through the end of the film. Most of our questions are answered, and the characters stay true to their motives. The fight for Zion is the scariest scene in film this year. The tension and anticipation for smith/neo oracle/architect and zion/machines battles created during the first two films and Reloaded especially makes the action scenes in this movie so effective. Matrix could not stay true to its science fiction roots and be an action film. But Reloaded and Revolutions strike the balance perfectly with their video game dialogue and epic scenes that fill viewers with wonder. The Matrix is a trilogy with three masterpieces. Revolutions does not pale in comparison with its predecessors.

Third film is much better than the previous film, and the most fun film in the frilogy

The Matrix Revolutions is a fairly decent way to end the Matriz Trilogy, even if it could have actually been a bit better. And, for on thing, it didn't exactly make the franchise go out with a complete bang, because after that long series of action sequences, explosions and special effects, the series ends quality, happily and carefully, as not to make any from for a fourth film (Unfortunately, that will probably never, ever happen). Still, is is certainly much better than the previous film in the series, The Matrix Reloaded, which was also good, but not great. So, this time around, the special effects and cgi have reached pretty much there complete fold in this final entry, with lots of impressive and memorably big-scale and extremely bombastic action sequences, with the attack on Zion definitely being brought to mind. Still, even though this is a great movie, this third film in the trilogy has also been rated R, just like the previous two films: This movie has arguably the strongest violence in any film in the Trilogy, with practically continuous, non-stop sequences of very strong sci-fi violence and lot's and lot's of bloody shootouts, karate fights, fistfights and killings, with them being in the form of decapitation, dismemberment, eyes being burnt out of there sockets and even a few instances of impalement. Also, there is the same usual average profanity here, as well, with several uses each of sh-t, g-dd-mn, jesus christ, a--, a--hole, d-mn, b-llsht, piss and more. So, while this film could have also been better, I think that the Matrix trilogy ended on a decent, if quiet, note. Reccomended.

Last Matrix film has high violence and bloody scenes

In the last Matrix film they have a solid plot with heaps of violence. In the film the two main characters volunteer for a suicide mission willingly. In the film they frequently swear but it's reasonable because they are getting attacked by giant robots. There is too much violence in this film, basically every second it's life or death. From fighting giant robots to fighting superheroes to fighting normal guys with electrical cords. In the film there is a lot of blood, shooting, martial arts and brutal fighting. In one scene one man has an electrical cord and shoves it in to the others eyes you can see his eyes burnt and pus filled. In the same scene the other man has a bloody face. In one scene a guy using a mech gets circled by the machines and gets his face scratched to the point of death, you see him dying with a very bloody face and the scene lasts a couple of minutes.

The Best of the Matrix Films

I don't understand why so many people hate this film. The characters and atmosphere is perfect, the story is well paced out, and although the ending is annoying, after Reloaded there wasn't really anywhere else to go. A great finale to the trilogy, with the best credit song ever! (Asato ma sad gamaya!) Point is, despite being just as good (if not better than) as the first film and definitely better than Reloaded, you MUST watch these films in order. This takes place hours after Reloaded, and includes many scenes of violence, from skinning alive, shooting, burning alive and fist fights. The only other issue here is language (particularly s--t, c--p and b-st-rd). However, this is the perfect film for a teenage boy's birthday party, as long as everyone is up-to-date with what's happening (or doesn't care about storyline).

the best in the trilogy

this has always been my favorite one in the trilogy, another reason why I like it better than the first two besides the fact that they show actual war of Zion, is that it's far more intense than the first two, EVERYTHING is on the line, and it's all out chaos and carnage which REALLY puts viewers on the edge of their seats and adds to the adrenaline rush

Awesome movie but incredibly violent

This movie has lots of blood this is the violence level of the first two matrix's combined. there is one scene where one man is fighting in a robot machine and a whole bunch of robots like thousands of them come down with sharp claws and he is bloodied very bad he is just covered in blood it could be disturbing for most viewers. There is a couple other scenes like that that are also very violent. But most stuff you can tell that it is not real. But this movie is very good if you are into sci fi action and cool action and violence.

Lifeless threequel is choppy but low on entertainment high on violence

Still good

This is probably my least favourite of the Matrix trilogy but it is still really good. It has a lot more blood than the other 2 but pretty much the same amount of swearing.

A surprisingly rock-solid trilogy finale

The first Matrix movie was mostly bland and tired, only redeemed by its action. The second film brought in even more action, but completely abandoned its plot. Both films left me horribly underwhelmed, and I was not enthusiastic about the final chapter, especially because of the bad reviews. But, to my immense surprise, The Matrix Revolutions is actually a very satisfying trilogy conclusion. The plot is interesting and pretty easy to follow, the action is as cool as ever, and there were some real moments of intrigue, an experience that I never got in the previous two films. I thought the new characters were likeable and relatable, particularly the General guy and his assistant. The final fight against Smith was great, bringing back some of his old glory as a solo villain. I enjoy the revolutions that are given to the characters, and I really liked the ending (now THERE'S a step up). The ending of the second film made me think the trilogy was just going to go deeper into more nonsense philosophy, but the second film is largely ignored here; it took risks and created its own style that brought everything together perfectly. Yet I do have some problems with the movie; the action isn't quite as good as it was in Reloaded, some bits of the plot could have been better explained, some of the dialogue was contrived, and the new actress playing The Oracle wasn't very good. But those are basically the film's only flaws. If the previous two films had just tried to be what this film was, this could have been the perfect action trilogy. But sadly, it did not turn out that way. If you're going to end a weak trilogy that had many directions to go in, this movie is pretty solid. It's suitable bubblegum for the eyes and for the mind, and I think it makes the trilogy worth seeing.

Okay movie

If I was to rate this movie it would be: R Sci-fi violence and brief sensuality The ending is very very dissapointing but at the same time kind of good so don't expect an epic conclusion.

The Matrix Revolutions Review

The trilogy ascends and soars with the two combatants and ends not with a whimper but with a blast of light. Thus the fabulous original film has found an honorable way to sign off. The Matrix Revolutions is a terrific action achievement. Andy and Larry Wachowski have concluded their trilogy with all barrels blazing.
