Yesterday I got, finally, to finish watching the 3 parts of Matrix. I remember watching the first part soon after it was released but I missed the 2nd and 3rd parts. I have to say that Matrix 2 and 3 sucked major ass. They were not just sucky, they actually managed to disturb me. I’ve always thought Matrix is one of the best movies ever and I still think so.
The first part was introducing a nice idea. A new concept that’s nice to imagine and believe in (temporarily at least). But the 2nd and 3rd parts were like: Now you know what this is all about, let’s start with the visual effects. Neo flying was somehow ok… but did he need to hold his fist in that superman way?! Matrix reloaded didn’t offer any kind of end whatsoever. I really wonder if people who went to the movies to watch it actually knew the movie did finish before the title were displayed. And in the 3rd part they changed Neo into Illidan? I’m blind not deaf mode! He can sense robots? And then that band he wore to cover his eyes really reminded me of Illidan that for a while I thought they might have actually stolen the idea.
The way I see it, it was 1st part “Neo becoming god”, 2nd part “Wrath of the god 1”, 3rd part “Wrath of the god 2”. I’m sure there were other ways to make money out of the 2 last movies without ruining the whole story, which btw ended with a lame peace!
