Shot back-to-back with The Matrix Reloaded, the third and final installment of Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski's sci-fi action saga picks up where the second film left off. Neo (Keanu Reeves) remains unconscious in the real world, caught in a mysterious subway station that lies between the machine world and the Matrix, and Bane (Ian Bliss) is still a conduit for Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving), who continues to grow out of control, threatening to destroy both worlds. Meanwhile, as the sentinels get closer and closer to Zion, the citizens of the earth's last inhabited city prepare for the… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Wachowski brothers have rendered their chronicles into banality, as if trying to imitate the qualitative tailspin of the Star Wars series."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"One of the most original concepts in recent fantasy movie history has devolved into something perfectly ordinary."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Averages out to be a mildly better film than The Matrix Reloaded, mostly on account of being neither as good nor as bad in its peaks and valleys."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Some of this stuff is just cheesy in the same way it's been cheesy in dozens of cheaper, less cultish films."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"There's nothing even resembling a surprise in the third and weakest installment of the trilogy."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"An unwieldy, two-plus-hours third act of a movie, guided by the principle (incubated by Reloaded and fully grown here) that too much is never too much."
‑ Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly
"Finale with same heavy violence, weaker script."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"It's amazing how such a brilliant opening film can devolve into nothing but uninteresting fight scenes and unnecessary visual effects."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"''Everything that has a beginning has an end,' says the tag line. Not in financial terms it doesn't.'"
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, Las Vegas Mercury
"No less than the rankest demagogue, The Matrix Revolutions insists on the primacy of faith over knowledge. Once it locks and loads, however, the triumphant visuals short-circuit anything resembling abstract thought."
‑ J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"As an action movie, it's talky, but it rocks."
‑ Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"Ah, the Wachowski's were one trick ponies after all."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Not in my memory has a film been filled with such a succession of ejaculatory FX shots that cover any semblance of story in goo."
‑ Daniel Schweiger, Film Threat
"Yes, some of the philosophy was clumsily scripted, but I saw and appreciated where the Wachowskis were trying to take the universe."
‑ Ethan Alter, NYC Film Critic
