Did you like Matrix Reloaded ?

I have heard some reviews, and I am curious what you thought. No specifics about the movie, as I will not be attending a showing of the film until next week.

The film is awesome. It is not perfect but unless you are trying to pick it appart you should have an excellent time. I want to see it at least a couple of more times. Maybe we can make it a social gathering and go as a group one of this days... see how CLSB reacts as a group to the movie

Enjoyable, I went to a matinee. Definitely worth the 6 bucks to see it on the big screen. Slow in parts, questions answered, others posed.

This film is complex, so complex that the average canadian would be so confused that they wouldn't enjoy it.

Well, they ended the film with "to be continued" I with my meager brain power managed in a space of 15 seconds to think up of 3 different ways to wrap up Reloaded and set up for the next one. The fight scene between Neo and Agent Smith's were cartoonish at best.

I thought it was defenetly worth my money. The more time that goes by and discuss things with people the more I like it. The movie like Chris said answers pretty much everything that the first one left up in the air. There are development on the characters that I really did not expect. Also it left a lot of questions for 3. Someone else said about the movie that it is a bridge between 1 and 3. I agree with that, but this is a heck of a bridge. The action scenes are way higher and more than make up for the low points.

That's what I mean... I don't want to post any spoilers, but sure there was 1 slow scene that could have been cut a little shorter, and sure to computer savvy people some stuff might seem overkill, but overall the martial arts, the action in general are out of this world. What other movie can even be compared to it. Try to remember the last time that you saw an actual chase scene that was awesome?

I bet 90% of people that saw the movie missed the trailer for Revolutions at the end. I even missed it the first time. I heard about it online, and caught it the second time that I saw it and even then there were only maybe 10 other people that stayed.

I watched it twice, and both times I fell asleep. Call me an complete ass, but I slept through the motorcycle scene! It did get rather slow at times, and I needed to watch those parts the second time to get more out of the movie. Needless to say, I failed that mission.

I think this had more to do with my complete and total lack of sleep for the previous two weeks (bed at 11pm, up at 3:30am). But I doubt I'll see it again until it hits the cheap theaters.

Overall I liked it....but the slower scenes in the movie I could have done without.

The action scenes ruled. I winced a few times during the Ducati scenes.....Damn!

Dissapointments, see everyone BUT trinity's boobs from see through clothing, that and that part was WAY longer than it needed to be, and all of it cheesy at that. Action sequences, so overdone and cheesy.

Pluses: interesting ideas and questions and theological things posed. Action sequences, so overdone and cheesy

Oh, that and the use of a 2001 ssh exploit plainly using nmap. (maybe only the linux geeks will of gotten that one?)

Dude, that F'n blew my mind. Most movies have completely fake computer interfaces. Remember Jurrasic Park. "Oh, that's a UNIX system."
