The Matrix Revolutions
Director: Andy Wachowski, Larry Wachowski
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving
This instantly forgettable third part, which follows The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded, proves that there was no story to tell beyond the original film. The two sequels are special effect bonanzas in search of a narrative. The characters we know struggle with their respective obstacles and the trilogy finishes with an overlong and underwhelming battle over the falling city of Zion. Neo’s anti-climacting “destiny” leaves the door open for additional parts.
