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.

There's great storytelling - some of Hollywood's best ever. The story takes jaw-dropping turns.

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.

Sean Axmaker

The Wachowskis may have something in their theory that the world is simply a complex operating system humans are simply virtual programs.... Their dialogue feels written by a computer program, and for that matter acted by a collection of CGI figures.

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.

Eric Harrison
Houston Chronicle

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

Kevin Carr
Fat Guys at the Movies

The Wachowski Brothers kept true to their original story.

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

Another installment of standard matrix stuff with cool special effects.
