This movie definitely proves that machines can do more than human.
For the entire 2 hours and 18 minutes, the computer generated actions and sound effects take up 80% of the show. The animated scenes are fun to watch especially the highway chasing. No doubt the Wachowski brothers have created an astonishing movie in visual effect that may not be easily replicated by others. Unfortunately, I'm a fan of Matrix's story more than its visual technology. Obviously younger people have a total opposite view than mine - i.e. my daughter and son (11 and 13 year old). Well, I didn't let my kids see the original Matrix until last year (it's R rated, you know.) and they were so thrilled about the actions but knew little of the story - which they didn't care. For this reason, I have not decided whether I should let them see the 'Reloaded'. Another thing is that they've seen too many similar movies already - from Harry Potter to Lord of The Rings, Spiderman to X-Man; it's no big deal any more. Just to give an example, we watched 'Shoalin Soccer' the other day; they were not surprised of those super soccer maneuvers and skills at all, but my wife . oh boy, she was amazed! She insisted that the soccer actions were real performance until I showed her the 'Make of the movie' which revealed the CAD of those super soccer scenes.
So what about the story of 'Reloaded'? My opinion - it is just too complicated for my little human brain to digest. Why the machines can create Matrix - a virtual world that is so real and powerful but can not stop Neo from breaking in? Why there are so may security systems and failed proof power grids just to prevent human (Neo) to break in? This is more like a video game than movie. For game it needs no sense, only rules. So for people who are looking for reasons, you'll be disappointed; but for game lovers, this is just a prelude for the video game 'Enter the Matrix'.
For those Keanu's fans, he is still the same old Keanu Reeves - perhaps a little bit too mature. No comments for other actors.
So what's left for human?
