Storyline

In this second adventure, Neo and the rebel leaders estimate that they have 72 hours until Zion falls under siege to the Machine Army. Only a matter of hours separates the last human enclave on Earth from 250,000 Sentinels programmed to destroy mankind. But the citizens of Zion, emboldened by Morpheus conviction that the One will fulfill the Oracles Prophecy and end the war with the Machines, rest all manner of hope and expectation on Neo, who finds himself stalled by disturbing visions as he searches for a course of action. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Crazy Credits

Alternate Versions

The version shown on TBS dubs the excessive use of the word "Shit" to "Shoot" or "Shucks." It also omits the nudity during the scene in Zion about 25 minutes in and the lines "You're fucking dead!" and "I'm gonna fucking kill you!" have the expletives cut out of the scene. Plus some of the car chase was omitted. See more »

Much better the second time around
12 December 2019 | by Med-JastaSee all my reviews

I did not like this very much the first watch. But after watching Revolutions, which I thought was much better, I gave this another chance. The first time you are of course wondering where the story is taking you and it ends up being basically no where. Then Revolutions does go there.

Because Reloaded is a second movie, it's the first half of the second movie. With that knowledge this first act becomes much better. Sure the action scenes go on a little too long, while they are very cool, but the second time when you aren't wondering about the plot you can enjoy them a little more.

Maybe it would have be easier if they called this movie part one.

My only problem with this movie is that it's uneven. There is over an hour of laying down plot line after plot line. Then action scenes that are very long and lose their significance to the story about half way through.

Now all of the dialogue and action scenes are very good but there should have been a little bit of break up to make it easier on us and even it out. The last third corrects this problem though.

Very good after a second viewing. The two movies are structured like one movie. It's really like watching The Empire Strikes Back, pausing it after Darth Vader shows up at cloud City and waiting 6 months to finish the movie.

Please give it another chance and you will enjoy.
