  • Rating: R
The explosive first sequel to The Matrix comes to DVD with a superb two-disc edition. With a widescreen anamorphic transfer of the film that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio (a full-screen version was released simultaneously), the disc features the English soundtrack in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital 2.0. Additionally, a dubbed French audio track is included in Dolby Digital 5.1 and English, Spanish, and French subtitles are available. While a commentary track is missing, the bonus features are certainly not lacking. "Preload" and "The Freeway Chase" are featurettes that both offer in-depth glimpses into the making of the film, and "The MTV Movie Awards Reloaded" is an hilarious parody starring Seann William Scott and Justin Timberlake. Four additional featurettes round out the package, offering looks at the video game inspired by the movie, the Animatrix short films, and the phenomenon of the Matrix universe.

Synopsis


The Matrix Reloaded
After creating an international sensation with the visually dazzling and intellectually challenging sci-fi blockbuster The Matrix, the Wachowski brothers returned with the first of two projected sequels that pick up where the first film left off. Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) have been summoned by Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) to join him on a voyage to Zion, the last outpost of free human beings on Earth. Neo and Trinity's work together has been complicated by the fact the two are involved in a serious romantic relationship. Upon their arrival in Zion, Morpheus locks horns with rival Commander Lock (Harry J. Lennix) and encounters his old flame Niobe (Jada Pinkett Smith). Meanwhile, Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) has returned with some surprises for Neo, most notably the ability to replicate himself as many times as he pleases. Neo makes his way to The Oracle (Gloria Foster), who informs him that if he wishes to save humankind, he must unlock "The Source," which means having to release The Key Maker (Randall Duk Kim) from the clutches of Merovingian (Lambert Wilson). While Merovingian refuses to cooperate, his wife, Persephone (Monica Bellucci), angry at her husband's dalliances with other women, offers to help, but only in exchange for a taste of Neo's affections. With The Keymaker in tow, Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus are chased by Merovingian's henchmen: a pair of deadly albino twins (Neil Rayment and Adrian Rayment). Filmed primarily in Australia and California (the extended chase scene was shot on a stretch of highway build specifically for the production outside of San Francisco), The Matrix Reloaded was produced in tandem with the third film in the series, The Matrix Revolutions. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Great Sequel, Very Underrated!

    I personally think that this is the sequel that stumps all sequels, packing a whallop and never letting you go. But this is one movie that fits each person differently. If you await the same "Bullet Time"-style action in the first one, you will be far from disappointed. If you lust for the intensely mind-warping science-fiction, there's even more in store for you. But there are people who think it's too chitty-chatty, too strenuous on their fragile, little attention spans, or too much of an effort for the Whachowskis to make a few extra bucks. Everyone will see at least one miniscule flaw, but other than that, "The Matrix Reloaded" is the biggest innovation in sci-fi action sequels since "T2".

    Simply Awesome!

    Where most people I've encountered thought the second movie in the trilogy was a step down, I thought The Matrix Reloaded was great! I thought the fights and the highway chases scenes were awesome! The movie comes up again with a great balance of brains and brawn, and certainly a good touch of fantasy. Oh, and I don't care what anyone says, I loved the scene where Neo fights the hundred or so Smith copies. I was thoroughly entertained by this film and it ranks right up there as one of my favorites. Definitely a good pick.

    The Matrix Movies are so unique and interesting. Great action, great concept. I had to have my own blu-ray version for my home theater. It's tough to follow the original movie because it was such a new story concept. A lot more of the same special effects with some fresh new twists to the story. We have a Matrix night a couple times a year and watch all of them in order. Never seems to get old.

    Cropped Image Inaccurate

    this full-screen dvd version alters the original theatrical aspect ratio of the movie from 2.35:1 to 1.33:1, giving a picture in which you lose almost 50% of the image in every frame.

    I Wonder What Happened?

    This sequel to the impressive 'Matrix,' is just shy of complete disappointment. I expected the movie to be so much better. Widescreen and good bonus material.
