The Matrix Revolutions is the third movie and finale of the Wachowski's The Matrix trilogy. Beginning where Reloaded ended, we find Neo unconscious, but showing brain patterns suggesting that he is in the Matrix. Neo is trapped in Mobil Avenue, a subway station and intermediate zone between the Matrix and machine world controlled by the Trainman, who is loyal only to the Merogvingian. Morpheus and Trinity go to rescue Neo, and Neo visits the Oracle to consult about visions he has had of Machine City. She informs him that he is developing a wireless connection with the Source, and that his nemesis Smith is his opposite and negative. When Neo enlists the help of captain Niobe, they head to Machine City to try to save the day, but one of their own crew is out to stop them. Neo must harness his powers and face his nemesis in his toughest battle to save Zion in the epic finale The Matrix Revolutions.

    How did something that started out so cool get so dorky?

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    You can virtually see the mystique peeling away while beholding the turgid melodrama, patchy plotting, windy dialogue and, yes, spectacular combat effects of this grand finale.

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    There is very little that is tantalizing or suspenseful. The feeling of revelation is gone, and many of the teasing implications of "Reloaded" have been abandoned.

    The conclusion to the epic Matrix trilogy should have been the best of the three films. Everything was set up perfectly leading into a potentially exciting conclusion, and most of the film went as expected. There was terrific action and science fiction drama, some amazing special effects, and the legend of Neo continued to grow, right up until the conclusion. The end of the film went from extremely predictable to ridiculously strange and confusing. While I'm sure the ending made perfect sense to the Wachowski's, it made no sense to me, an avid science fiction fan and movie critic. This being a review, means I can't go into specifics, but the ending was absolutely horrible and puts the whole series in a different light. The most disheartening part of this whole thing is that until that point, the Matrix has been done to near perfection. The story was solid, the action was out of this world, the special effects were amazing, the casting was flawless, and just when the trilogy should have reached it's apex, it all comes crashing down. Once again the cast is terrific and the story is great, which is why I don't understand how they could give us an ending like that. I thoroughly enjoyed the Matrix trilogy and it will certainly hold it's place in cinematic history, but as a fan I was horribly disappointed by an ending that came out of nowhere and left the audience scratching it's head.moreless
