Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

This is one of those ideas that looks good on paper. Andy & Larry Wachowski enlisted some premier talent to direct these short films, and the animation is often very impressive. They wrote the screenplays to tie into the feature films in small ways, and those inside references are fun to catch. But does this project really amount to anything? For all the work that was put into it, even Matrix fans are likely to see it once and forget about it. The best film is 'Kid's Story,' about an instantly sympathetic teen. The worst is the insipid 'Matriculated.'
