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}

Trivia

The red chair Morpheus is sitting in when he is expounding on his plan to access the source is the same red chair he was sitting in when he offered Neo the red and blue pills in The Matrix (1999), and when he explained to Neo what the Matrix was. See more »

Goofs

During the highway chase scene, when Trinity and the keymaker jump on the motorcycle truck, the bikes change between shots. Viewed from the side, from the front to the rear, there's a red, a black, and then three red bikes. When Trinity calls Link for a driving program, there's now a red, two blacks and two red bikes.

Crazy Credits

As in "The Matrix", the opening Warner Bros. logo is green on a gray sky, and the opening Village Roadshow logo is green. See more »

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 »

User Reviews

 
Perhaps overloaded, but definitely groundbreaking
26 February 2004 | by jazzzjasperSee all my reviews

Watching The Matrix Reloaded, one is absolutely entitled to say that it is overloaded, too lengthy action sequences for instance, and indeed, a way too lengthy dancing scene in Zion. But next to that, it is obvious that this sequal to The Matrix (1999)takes the story to a whole new dimension. Different characters define the working of the matrix, and the meaning of life itself, in different ways, depending on their onthological background. A conclusion is not (yet) given, which adds to the movie a kind of postmodern quality. For as far as the action sequences are concerned: Groundbreaking. You'll see stuff that you've never seen before. Sometimes the scenes are a little lengthy, which harmes the narrative, but that is compensated easily by the visual spectacle. And yes, the Architect at the end is difficult to understand, but when you watch the film more than once, you'll find out that it does make sense what he says. All together this movie may not be as fantastic as 'The Matrix', but it is definitely a good movie that will keep you thinking for a while.
