  • Rating: R
The third and final film in the Wachowski brothers' epic science fiction trilogy The Matrix picks up where the second film, The Matrix Reloaded, left off. As the film begins, Neo attempts to navigate through a space somewhere between the machine world and the real world, Trinity and Morpheus pay a visit to The Merovingian, the citizens of Zion prepare for imminent war with the sentinels, and Agent Smith continues to gain power. As Matrix fans have come to expect, the closing chapter is presented in a superb DVD package. The two-disc set features top-notch visual and audio quality alongside a seemingly endless wealth of bonuses. The first disc bears a crystal-clear widescreen anamorphic transfer of the feature presentation with the soundtrack available in both Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and Dolby Digital Stereo. A French-dubbed Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track is also included, along with subtitles in English, French, and Spanish. Standing out from the Matrix DVDs that preceded it, disc one of Revolutions is the first to feature trailers from all three trilogy entries and The Animatrix animation series. Over on the second disc, viewers are treated to several behind-the-scenes featurettes. "Revolutions Recalibrated" takes a general look at the making of the film, while "CG Revolution" specifically examines the dazzling visual effects, and "Super Burly Brawl" offers the ins and outs of the climactic final fight between Neo and Agent Smith. Meanwhile, there are four more short making-of segments in the Operator feature. Beyond that, there is an exceptionally concise text-and image-based history of the Matrix called "Before the Revolution," a look at the upcoming online Matrix game, a gallery with storyboards and conceptual images, and several DVD-ROM features. A full-screen version with the same features was also released.

Synopsis


The Matrix Revolutions
Shot back-to-back with The Matrix Reloaded, the third and final installment of Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski's sci-fi action saga picks up where the second film left off. Neo (Keanu Reeves) remains unconscious in the real world, caught in a mysterious subway station that lies between the machine world and the Matrix, and Bane (Ian Bliss) is still a conduit for Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving), who continues to grow out of control, threatening to destroy both worlds. Meanwhile, as the sentinels get closer and closer to Zion, the citizens of the earth's last inhabited city prepare for the inevitable onslaught. By bargaining with The Merovingian (Lambert Wilson), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) are able to free Neo who, after meeting with The Oracle (Mary Alice stepping in for the late Gloria Foster), decides that he must leave Zion and head for the machine mainframe. As Neo and Trinity venture into the dangerous machine world, with hopes of stopping both the machines and Agent Smith, their comrades in Zion attempt to fight off the attacking sentinels with the odds stacked greatly against them. Other cast members returning include Monica Bellucci, Ngai Sing, and Harold Perrineau Jr. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    A Great Ending to a Great Trilogy!

    Posted
    BachMan

    Another movie that most people I know seemed disappointed with. Again, I thought it was a great movie. You're thrown right into the action from the start and from there you just know that things are going to pick up fast. To me, I felt like I was on the edge of my seat right from the first two minutes of the movie, and the rest of it just blew me away. Nearly every scene leads to some kind of a gun battle or street fight, so if you are into that kind of stuff, you're in. Everything comes to a head when the machines finally reach Zion and the final battle between humans and machines begins. I was simply blown away by the battle...simply incredible. Neo and Smith's final fight wasn't as long as I think I would have liked, but certainly nothing to be upset with. My only qualm with this film was that at the end, there are still some questions that don't quite get answered. I suppose that's where "The Matrix Online" came in, but I never got around to playing that game, so I guess I'll never know. All in all, great movie, great trilogy, great entertainment!

    Not the Greatest Ending, but It'll Suffice!

    The plot is difficult to detail without spoilers since many of the most shocking revelations come at the beginning, before the high-stakes battle scenes begin. Let it suffice to say that Neo has become something more than we thought, and as a result, he is much more of a threat to the nefarious virus Agent Smith. When the Oracle indicates (or does she?) that Neo is Zion's only hope, he and Trinity break off from the others who are hunkering down for an all-out assault of Zion. This is the strongest indicator that the third of the trilogy has stepped away from philosophical sci-fi and into pure action, as Neo and Trinity disappear from the screen for long stretches. Their onscreen time is limited, as is their plot; this will disappoint many diehard fans. Still, the action sequences are breathless (although eventually overdone) and the special effects are first-rate. The resolution of the trilogy is both surprising and inevitable, the hallmark of a well-prepared story. If you've been paying attention, it will make complete sense.

    Lives upto the expectations

    While it would be hard for any movie to top the original Matrix, this movie attempts to do so. On some levels, it is the best Matrix movie yet. It goes out with a bang. Without ruining the ending, I will say that it is a climactic experience, and keeps you pinned to your seat thirsty for more every step of the way. This movie, as well as the previous 2, belong in the collections of action fans everywhere.

    Matrix Revolutions -Widescreen

    This movie, though it has great action scenes and special effects, its story has no body. It appears that the crew put so much effort into a mind-blowing performance, they were lazy with building a good storyline and ended up with a shallow plot. Not to say that the movie was bad just could have been better. However, if anyone wants to sit down and enjoy a romping action flick, this would fit the bill.

    As Disappointing as The Second Movie

    Posted
    kevman79

    I still wonder what the Wachowski Brothers were thinking when they made the two sequels to 'The Matrix.' The first film was very impressive, original, and interesting. The sequels were disappointing at best, which is really a shame because here's a few movies that had potential to become one of the all-time great trilogies. Widescreen with ample bonus material.

    An end of a cult classic

    Now you would hear from alot of people saying that this was the worst one of The Matrix movies, but thats because there wasn't that many trips back to The Matrix. This movie ends the saga and for me it went out a bang and I loved evey minute of it. This one was more of an action movie than a kunfu movie

    Cropped Image Theatrically Inaccurate

    Posted
    kevman79

    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 on each side of every frame.
