“The Matrix Reloaded”


BONUS MOVIE REVIEW: Last night I got to see the 2003 sequel to “The Matrix” which is entitled “The Matrix Reloaded.” It stars Keanu Reeves (47 Ronin, Constantine), Laurence Fishburne (The Colony, Mystic River), Carrie-Anne Moss (Chocolat, Pompeii), Harold Perrineau (Lost, Romeo + Juliet), Hugo Weaving (V for Vendetta, Transformers: Dark of the Moon), Jada Pinkett Smith (The Nutty Professor, Madagascar), Harry Lennix (Man of Steel, Ray), Randall Duk Kim (Kung Fu Panda, The Last Airbender), Gloria Foster (Separate But Equal, Leonard Part 6), Ian Bliss (Superman Returns, Stealth), Steve Bastoni (Neighbours, Suburban Mayhem), Anthony Zerbe (American Hustle, The Dead Zone), and Helmut Bakaitis (Happy Feet, The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello). The sequel takes place six months after the first movie with Neo (Reeves) saving more people than ever from the Matrix. In this movie we actually get to see Zion which is the last real human city left on Earth. Everything is going well since Neo is stronger than ever in the Matrix, having super abilities like seeing codes instead of people and flying. That is until Zion gets word that 250,000 sentinels are digging into Zion to kill all of the humans in it and will reach them in seventy-two hours. Even though Commander Lock (Lennix) orders them to stay in Zion to prepare for the war that is about to c0me, Neo, Morpheus (Fishburne), Trinity (Moss), and their newest addition, Link (Perrineau), leave Zion to find the Keymaker (Duk Kim) in the Matrix because they were advised to by the Oracle (Foster). With the Keymaster, Neo will be able to open a door in the Matrix that will lead him to the Source (the mind of the Matrix), to hopefully destroy it, saving all of the human race. I thought this movie was a great sequel to the first one with a very good story, great acting, and awesome action scenes as well as the special effects that came with them (and there were a lot of action scenes!). Cons of this movie would be a scene at Zion with dancing that was longer than it should have been and this movie can confuse people just like the first one did. Other than those, this movie was really great. Not as fantastic as the first one, but not awful either. I recommend this to anyone who has seen the original!! FINAL SCORE: 90%= Juicy Popcorn
