The idea to make this movie must have been, let’s sell nostalgia. Because the amount of flash backs in this movie should be a record. I would say this was a bad idea and that weak writing did not help. We spend like 75% of the time searching for threads to link up things from the trilogy to why things are the way they are now. This could have been better done within a minute, with an update of how things stand now, and we move on. It was like watching a child tell a story, you have no idea where it is going to end or how, but it is long, incoherent and you cannot wait for it to stop.

This new Matrix movie reminds me of the problem I had with the Star Wars franchise. The whole Skywalker saga went on for nine movies.  The franchise has multiple animated and game stories all taking place in the same universe. But when it comes to the movies, it must be about the Skywalkers. Then they took a chance with Rogue One, and for me that is the best movie in the whole franchise. Rogue One runs perpendicular to the movies and did not focus on the Skywalkers. That risk that Disney took in making that movie made them know people crave other Star Wars stories, and from there we have had the great popular series The Mandalorian.

Why Warner Bros did not do the same with this franchise is beyond me. If their plan is to make another trilogy of Matrix movies, then I wish they just don’t. This one was crappy enough to warrant a rethink.

In the years after we discover that the machines have kept both Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) alive (resurrected them). They needed them to continue to have power, the merger of those thoughts I will leave for you to watch the movie and discover.

So, they placed both in a very funny setup where, they will always be close and yet far apart. Neo is a game developer and Trinity works at a bike shop. Zion is no more; it is now Io a place where some machines and humans built. Yes, there is a division in the machine world some now side with the humans. Neo is trapped living a life he believes to be true while dreaming of the life he once lived, all this came to a halt when he came across a game character he created. Turns out Neo subconsciously wants to be free, so he created a game character that was the merger of both Morpheus and Agent Smith. As expected, Morpheus found him and helped him get free from the Matrix again.

Now free Neo is ready to do anything he can to get Trinity out.

The movie can be summed to be 75% here is what has happened while you have been gone Neo and 25% let us save Trinity. Nothing else seemed to matter.

This was not a needed movie and not worth anyone’s time as far as Matrix standard goes. The movie was done by only one of the Wachowskis.
