The second had some good set scenes (especially once you got past the mass dance scene, at which point I really did almost fall asleep) i.e. the court yard and the motorway (although there was a hole in the continuity with the sword on the side of the truck). It also had some great music in it. But the fight scenes with Neo and Agent Smith were so boring in the third also the ending was a bit of a miss mash.Originally posted by richard plumb
I'd rather take the red pill and wake up in a world where neither sequel existed.
The first movie is fantastic, but the two sequels are overlong and meandering. Both could have been made quite easily into one movie IMO. Revolutions especially is really only a 3rd act.
You'll have a very long wait then mate...Warners have ststed that, after the debacle of the Lethal Weapons', Twister & Interview With A Vampire, there will be no more dts Warners discs.Originally posted by Sammy Jankis
Personally I'll be looking for a 6.1 mix (preferably DTS Discrete) in the box set.
I do not know if it was planed originally as a trilogy but The Matrix stood on its own. Whereas Reloaded was obviously part one of a two part story.Originally posted by Sammy Jankis
Of course it is only a 3rd act, it is the third part of a three part story. How could it be anything else?
These films never seemed to me to be intended as whole stories within themselves. Next you'll be saying Fellowship of the Ring was only a first act.
Yes it was sort of left open but you would have been satisfied if no one mentioned a sequel and did not leave you with the feeling of what happened next. As the way the first film ended you took Neo to be nearly all powerful and would easily kick the machines butts. And the machines greatest weapon Agent Smith was dead or whatever became of that program.Originally posted by Sammy Jankis
At the end of The Matrix Neo said something like 'I'm coming to get you'.
