Volk, I mean this with all due respect. I was going to let your post be, but I did not like
I think that the people that say this movie were fantastic were the people that had no idea what was going on and since it confused them, it must have been good.
1. I thought the movie was oversimplified and was way too easy to understand... if there is a complain that would be it. That is why to me it seemed slow, but I still think that the movie was more than fanstastic.
2. It is all good that you did not like it, but you do not have to lash out at people that did not like it.
Now that those are done,
Here is how I interpreted what you did not understand.
Religios Ceremony was really the only time where you really got to see how big the Zion population really is. The point of the dance was explaned by Morpheous. Was a little too long, maybe, but also remember what was also going on. I am sure you saw the first matrix but did you find all the hidden stuff that the W brothers put there... references to books, other movies and tons of religions references. I think this movie paid a couple of tributes to starwars in my opinion.
Agent Smith did not fight with Trinity the movie, she fought other agents. Just line in any martial arts movie, it would be quicker to pull a gun and kill people, but people dodge bullets on this one so at least there is a reason why hand to hand combat is necessary. Now if you remember, the Agent beat the crap out of her, so he basically did not dodged the puches he just used them against her.
Biker boyz sucked, and it sucked in the level that we know how unaccurate that was, but I still did not hate it and was entertained... that is what I go to the movies... and the Matrix entertained me.
