Storyline

This mammoth documentary takes use through the making of both _Matrix Reloaded, The (2003)_ and _Matrix Revolutions, The (2003)_. On top of seeing many pre-production and production meetings, we are also invited on the sets for both films, and get an idea of how difficult it was to accomplish the nearly impossible.

Diary
24 April 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a documentary on the Ultimate 10-Disc(with #9 entirely dedicated to this, and titled after it) Set. It consists almost solely of behind the scenes footage, with relatively few actual interviews, instead going for something of a fly-on-the-wall perspective, with us witnessing and overhearing. We get a good idea of the mood, before as well as during production. This shows filming and other work on countless of the major scenes of Reloaded and Revolutions, and it does include the game as well, all three of which this follows the entire making of. This is well-edited, and doesn't lose your interest. Thus, it is also paced well... at 95 minutes, and sans talking heads or movie clips(I personally like the approach this took), it never gets boring. If one chooses to watch all of the "White Rabbit" featurettes on the same DVD, and potentially activated throughout the viewing of this, about 81 minutes are added, for a complete length of just short of three hours. These give profiles of a lot of crew people. There is harsh language, if relatively little of it, and mature material as seen in both sequels. Now, the important topic here... where can I get my hands on one of those Smith masks? I recommend this to any fan of the Matrix universe, and/or those who want to gain more of a "feel" for how they put the last two thirds of the trilogy. 7/10
