The Matrix Reloaded
Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”
This kind of film is why I love to see movies, to see spectacular visions that I've never seen before. This film lacks the human core of its predecessor now that Neo is seemingly invulnerable, but at least it doesn't take 90 minutes to get to the action payoff; this whole film is the action payoff. It contains several astounding set pieces that producers will try to imitate for years. Any fan of over-the-top action should giggle themselves silly. The exposition isn't clunky so much as just plain boring, but who's going to see this film for the witty dialogue?
