We managed to make it out to a showing of The Matrix Reloaded today and, as you can see by our scorecard on the left, we thought it was pretty good. I had gone in with lowered expectations after reading a few of the mixed reviews it’s gotten and I can see where some of the criticisms are valid, but after seeing it I have to say that I feel I understand why the story unfolded in the way it did and I left satisfied.
If you’re a big fan of the original movie you will probably like this one as well. It certainly raises the bar for action sequences to a height that will be hard to beat anytime soon and is worth seeing for that aspect alone. Hugo Weaving’s Agent Smith is now my all-time favorite baddie. Good stuff, Maynard.
