I had pretty high expectations going into The Matrix Reloaded last night and for the most part they were either met or exceeded. I suppose it’s inevitable that such a highly anticipated movie is going to be subjected to the level of criticism I’m seeing in the rest of webdom, but frankly it’s starting to annoy me.
Did this movie have better action and special effects than the original? Heck yeah! Was this movie as deep and philosophical as The Matrix? I would say yes, and by the end of the film things got quite a bit more complicated than I was expecting. It’s no longer just a question of free will, but of the interdependence of man and machine. There’s clearly a lot more to be discovered when The Matrix Revolutions comes out.
