I watched the matrix ever since I was a little kid. Loved every single movie. This movie completely lost me. I had so many questions. I didn’t like the story line. It needed more excitement. Honestly was very disappointed.

Very dissatisfied. They relied too much on the old ones to drive this one. Wish they could make it have more original thoughts and themes

Matrix Resurrections is all over the place. The meta commentary on it’s own corporatized existence was clunky and poorly executed. Furthermore, this movie didn’t have any real risks which left me bored and waiting for the movie to end. Also, at the end of the movie I was left with this sinking feeling of “why”. What was the purpose? Why did they free him? All these questions at the end, and I came to the conclusion that this whole movie was pointless. Don’t waste your time, stay home with your family.

Lazy writing, very underwhelming and disappointing. I expect more from a Matrix script.

It was very unsatisfying and boring the first and second half was good it just goes downhill after that. not really worth the money.

It started out very interesting as we were figuring out what was going on, but the creativity of cinematography, scoring, and action from the first movie were severely lacking. It just felt like an action movie, not a Matrix movie.

Best matrix movie yet. Action was a little lacking for a matrix movie but this one really gets you thinking, loved the subdel undertones and shots at other reboots and how it's always the same thing just shown in a different way. This one is not. It is great. The new people that were brought on for this one did fantastic and I hope to see a follow up to this movie to develop them more. All in all a must watch

More of an action Movie than a Matrix Movie if u understand me. No Mystery, no making u think, no mystic just an reversal of roles of neo and trinity. they missed the mark on this one they must be making new Characters the front runners in the future Movies

For me parts of it was boring and I did fall asleep not as intense as the last one 20 years ago; could have been better. It just didn’t rise to the level of the last one and maybe it’s because of its former characters. No one matches them.

I've seen all the previous Matrix films at the theater and they all added to the story or broke new ground on some level. this movie however was a complete letdown and borefest. I just saw a 7:30 showing and it completely underwhelmed me and caused me to doze off a few times, even during fight scenes. by comparison I saw Spidey at 10:30pm and never lost interest. most movies I don't want them to end, this one I couldn't wait until it was over..

when I read how they didn't even tell Laurence Fishburne about the making of this one I felt some type of way. This was a straight cash grab for the nostalgic fans and that's it. they even make jokes about that in the movie. I fell asleep in the beginning but I thought it was cause I was tired but other people told me how slow the beginning was.

Terrible movie. Literally took numerous outtakes from previous Matrix movies to take up many minutes of the movie. Why make a new movie and spend all that time energy and money when you can simply insert many minutes of flashbacks to the original movies. Don't waste your money...

It’s a film of maddening contradictions, missed opportunities and half-taken risks, but it’s destined to be one of the year’s most polarizing and talked-about releases regardless.

You might expect slick remix The Matrix Resurrections to be just money-grabbing nostalgia, but it's also a comment on money-grabbing nostalgia, a refinement and updating of the original film's ideas, and an exasperated clapback to anyone who missed the damn point these past two decades. With guns. Lots of guns. And even a few jokes.

Now this is how you reheat a piece of pop culture. Nearly 20 years after The Matrix Revolutions, which left its two main characters dead, director Lana Wachowski returns to the series with enough self-aware wit, narrative ingenuity, and filmmaking prowess to more than justify the endeavor.
