Atom User Reviews for The Matrix Resurrections
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.
Should have taken the blue pill instead
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.
horrible worse movie I seen this year
Really doesn’t want to say this but this was worst Matrix ever :/
It was cool to see Neo after all these years but this movie wasn’t that good. Disappointed! First one will always be the best
It was very unsatisfying and boring the first and second half was good it just goes downhill after that. not really worth the money.
too slow...dont watch imax
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
Could have done without seeing this sequel
The movie way missing the point of the other movies. It must have been a different writer.
They should have left the franchise alone
Nothing new to see here.
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.
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
overdid the flashbacks to the original movies
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..
What was that
I loved the original 3 and this one is just confusing and dumb and no explanation for a lot of things.
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.
not what I expected, should have left it on the third one.
Leader of the free world. black, woman, lesbian. What else to say but 5 stars. Hero. No no no. She-ra beotch.
I fell asleep and then woke up to Neil Patrick Harris being the villain. Nice.
awesome movie !!! 🎬 🎞
didnt know I needed another matrix but I really enjoyed it
Love how they went back reworked the whole story. Now we will have 20 more years of matrix movies.
I love this new matrix resurrections today.
Lana’s still got it! #WakeUp
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...
good to watch
The movie was average at best wish they were have went in detail in the movie
Good to be back in the Matrix again.
Froze in the theater; really uncomfortable watching
It starts out slow but it finally pick up the pace half way through.
My girlfriend fell asleep and couldn’t even be bothered to watch the “action” scenes the movie did have. Even I, an avid matrix fan, didn’t enjoy this new one whatsoever. Truthfully, I envied not being able to sleep so soundly through just as she did.
the originals are the way to go, this is a blatant soulless cashgrab
Loved the movie! Highly recommend watching this one!
For a live action movie based off of Animatrix it's not too bad
Good story with new and old characters.
I have ridden the coattails of this franchise since it started. I am glad to see it's still in very good hands. I greatly enjoy all the call backs to the original story, the noodle shop, the deja Vu cat.....I missed the Matrix. glad to see it's back.
did a full indepth video review on youtube check it out on youtube @ T&K tries it.
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.
