After creating an international sensation with the visually dazzling and intellectually challenging sci-fi blockbuster The Matrix, the Wachowski brothers returned with the first of two projected sequels that pick up where the first film left off. Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) have been summoned by Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) to join him on a voyage to Zion, the last outpost of free human beings on Earth.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If you're 14 or younger in age or sensibility, you may giggle at some of the bons mots."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"A sadder, wiser, more grown-up movie than its predecessor."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"Everything I wanted in a Matrix sequel"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Electrifying but still violent 2nd in trilogy."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The Wachowskis manage to surprise and amaze with some stunning machine special effects and great scenes that truly dazzle the mind."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Worryingly, the longer this movie goes on, the harder it is to care."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"In the face of almost unbearable expectations, the Wachowski brothers deliver a sequel that soars to places only hinted at in the original."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Though introducing some new ideas and characters, Matrix Reloaded is not as exciting as the 1999 original, suffering from problems that often inflict middle chapters of trilogies."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The encoded bloom is off the digital rose in The Matrix Reloaded. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Between the money scenes, we get characters standing at attention and burping prophecies and deep thoughts at each other."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"I liked this movie and can recommend it with a clear critical conscience, but it never moved me even half as much as Steven Spielberg's A.I."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"You don't have to buy into the geeky mythmaking in The Matrix Reloaded in order to enjoy its kinetic pleasures."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Not one of the worst sequels that has ever been put in movie theaters, and not one of the most disappointing... but, is it ever a grind."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Offers some phenomenal action sequences that more than deliver on the jaw-dropping promise shown on the trailers."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"...less a narrative than an advertisement for a cultural wave. It's all about discount Zen and black clothes, the commodification of sterile violence as Kabuki."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
