Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Certains films sont davantage une démonstration d'animation qu'une histoire bien construite."
‑ Louis-Jérôme Cloutier, Panorama
"This particular 'rabbit hole' has far more verve and artistic curiousity than its bloated blockbuster counterpart [i]The Matrix Reloaded[/i]"
‑ Nathaniel Rogers, Film Experience
"The animation is consistently excellent"
‑ Robert Strohmeyer,
"Final Flight of the Osiris"
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Far from fleshing out the universe of THE MATRIX, this cynical, self-indulgent marketing tie-in renders it less coherent. Boasts only a few memorable visual moments, and suffers from a paucity of narrative."
‑ Carlo Cavagna,
"The Animatrix may be commercial in its purpose, but it's also rapturously artistic in its execution."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"Breathtaking on a big screen, the impact should be little diminished on video."
‑ Edward Havens,
"Some of its segments are brilliant and breathtaking examples of animation. Unfortunately, as with the average music CD, for every great track there's usually a "filler" song."
‑ Brian Mckay,
""Beyond" is the highlight of The Animatrix and "A Detective Story" is its nadir."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"An interesting look into the minds of the warriors against the machines, and what can tempt them."
‑ Kevin Carr, Film Threat
