The movie takes off right after the ending of the first one. Neo (Keanu Reeves) is in a place between the real and unreal worlds from which he must be saved by Trinity (Carrie-Ann Moss) and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne). He must then continue fighting Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving). Meanwhile, the machines keep digging to take over Zion, something that Niobe (Jada Pinkett Smith), along many others, wonít allow without a fight.
When I say thereís a ďfightĒ between humans and machines in this movie Iím clearly underestimating what it really is about. It isnít just a fight, itís a battle, a war. It is a quest for survival. And it is huuuge. The special effects people really surpassed themselves this time around, cause the battle in Zion is clearly eye-popping in more ways than one. It is epic and really exciting and scary.
As for the rest of the movie, thereís a lot going on. We spend less time inside the Matrix this time around, although every time we go there the movie soars. Thereís a scene involving the Merovingian that is absolutely perfect. And also the Oracleís presence this time around is even more enigmatic. Oh, and thatís not to mention the last battle between Neo and Agent Smith. A wow!
I must also say I really enjoyed Neoís visit to the place he came from. Something quite shocking happens there that I certainly didnít expect, but that provides a lot of emotional impact.
The actors all do a good job in their usual roles. This time around Jada has a bigger role and she takes the most out of it. Monica Bellucci, meanwhile, only has a cameo, but what an appearance!
At the end I donít know how much sense the movie made. I think the Wachowskis got a bit too immersed in their own mythology, but who cares when thereís so much spectacle and interesting ideas at hand. Now that itís all said and done I thank them for a wonderful trilogy I will always cherish and support.
ďEverything that has a beginning has an end. I see the end coming, I see the darkness spreading. I see death... and you are all that stands in his way. If you cannot stop him tonight, then I fear tomorrow will never come.Ē
