Consensus: A disappointing conclusion to the Matrix trilogy as characters and ideas take a back seat to the special effects.

Desson Thomson
Washington Post

The Wachowski brothers have rendered their chronicles into banality, as if trying to imitate the qualitative tailspin of the Star Wars series.

Geoff Pevere
Toronto Star

One of the most original concepts in recent fantasy movie history has devolved into something perfectly ordinary.

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.

There's nothing even resembling a surprise in the third and weakest installment of the trilogy.

Scott Foundas
L.A. Weekly

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.

Finale with same heavy violence, weaker script.

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.

As an action movie, it's talky, but it rocks.

Ah, the Wachowski's were one trick ponies after all.

Meh...okay, but a really disappointing ending to what could have been a fantastic trilogy.

Considering that the first Matrix film was so good, and the sequel was average, you'd expect the third entry of this franchise to be good, right? Well with… More
