The "rubber man" mode in the Godmode fight with 100 smiths still makes sense in the Matrix. Any gamer knows that when too much is happening at once, you have to accept giving up on things like "texture" in order to just keep the game running

Yeah, I saw it as Smith fucking up the surrounding chunk/node and forcing it to compensate by downgrading any "NPCs" aka progs/agents in the area. Since Smith is both not and is a prog at the same time, it just messes with his rigging and texture work. Can you tell that I work in the 3D modeling field, lol.

The Freeway Chase is a great example of why using your vulnerable characters in action sequences can create a lot more tension than using God Mode ones like Neo.

The matrix reloaded is truer to the vision and filmmaking style of the wackowski’s. The original is a masterpiece, it’s flawless, sublime, it’s only flaw is that it is a studio film. What I mean is, they had to simplify aspects of the script so that the audience could understand the concept of the matrix. Machines using humans as batteries was incorporated as a rewrite of how the machines enslave humans because Warner brothers didn’t understand the wackowski’s original notion of machines harvesting humans via biofusion. The original film is tight in execution, exposition and exploitation. It’s the perfect synthesis of cerebral storytelling, metaphysical subtext, cutting edge visual effects, groundbreaking special effects, everything works cohesively as a “movie”. Reloaded is far more left-field in nature, hence the discrepancies in storytelling and filmmaking compared to its predecessor. The film suffers from over written exposition, execution varies it feels more pretentious then profound but it’s because this is the matrix at its most authentic. It’s not the sequel we deserved but the one we needed. I appreciate it so much more now then I did upon its release. The film has aged well, when you perceive it with clarity. The writing involving characters such as the architect, the oracle, Morpheus, the Merovingian, is exquisite. The juxtaposition between the matrix and Zion contributes to the authenticity in world building. The stakes concerning the impending invasion of the machines is suspenseful to say the least. I think reloaded is one of the best middle chapters of any trilogy. The middle chapter is supposed to be the most problematic out of the three for a reason. You could say it’s fate but fate it seems is not without a sense of irony.

@The Doctor I think the problem isn't who's fighting who, it's that the Chateau Fight is literally a distraction. We know the mooks pose no real threat to Neo. It's ONLY there to slow Neo down. And while it's a cool scene in the abstract, in context it bogs down the pace and keeps the focus away from the action with actual stakes. It would've been better if they'd stuck with Morpheus & Trinity, with short brief cuts back to the Chateau to establish "Yep, Neo's still distracted."

The bullet dodging but not punch dodging is explained by the fact that the guns and bullets are part of the code and work as intended. The bullet leaving the gun can be worked out precisely so can be easily dodged by machines, people however are as pointed out inherently unpredictable by the machines so the fighting cannot be worked out 100% but can be predicted which is why they can block and fight against most people without issue.

Honestly, the bullet dodging being based in rules of the matrix reminds me of hitscan weapons vs projectile weapons. hitscan doesn't actually fire a physical bullet but the lob of a grenade does throw a physics based grenade. could be a similar effect where the hitscan of the guns is something the agents can automatically detect and dodge but the swing of a sword doesn't have the same effect.

@sswgm Programs can be lightning fast ... if they are coded that way and have enough computing power available. But making the agent programs that way would have been a huge waste of resources. They are coded to use just enough of the limited resource "computing power" to be able to deal with humans and all they can throw at them (bullets) without issue. They struggle against freed humans, but generally win (as we learned in the first movie). Then against Neo it takes Smith stealing the computing power of a hundred agents to come close to get an upper hand. Just like a pocket calculator is able to compute everything it is designed to do faster than any human. Use it for a calculation is isn't built for (e.g. pattern recognition) and even a human can outperform it.

The agents are slow vs. Neo and the main characters in the Matrix movies because "rule of cool" is taking precedent. It's a movie, so "rule of cool" influences everything. Though I want to agree with your reasoning that appeals to the lore, I can't because even our "real life" machine code operates in nanoseconds (or maybe faster in their setting?). IRL, look at how our stock markets operates, major financial entities conduct trades in nanoseconds in response to unpredictable human choices. Our computers are just idling in a universe where people are many orders of magnitude slower in their decisions. From that perspective, predicting the trajectory and final position of human limbs in slow-mo (from their perspective) would be trivial. Muscle memory does provide opportunities for animals to make some coordinated motions faster, but only for a few moments, and even those practiced motions would be predictable after witnessing them once.

This is obviously just me speculating, but the first one was pg rated I think, and the second was r with sexual metaphors and scenes And a lot more violent than the first one. This isn't necessarily bad? At least not for me, but for the general audience it could be too big of a change. I'm pretty sure the first one was also over simplified and toned down than the wachowski's original vision, it's still amazing but had a lot of studio interference. So with the second and the third they had more creative control and it wasn't bad, just different. And since they were both released in the same year, there wasn't really time to absorb the difference and it just bombed. You can see a lot of people in the past years saying that they actually liked the films because it got better over time once you pay more attention.

@late night logic I don't think you're wrong for disliking the movie. And I definitely don't think the points made in that video are irrelevant to you or the person who made the video. But for me the story beats, the world it builds, the characters and plot points just work. There are things I would change for sure. I'd make the action scenes more fun and interesting, and especially would raise the stakes for them. Even if it's just by adding a liked, more vulnerable character into the action. Like, the scene where Neo fights with multiple Smiths at the same time. Maybe they could have had Seraph in the fight as well. And getting eventually completely overwhelmed and even die in that scene. That's a good way to give the fight more impact.

@VisseNekku every point was relevant. It’s a bit of opinion but the bare bones of it is true. I saw it in the cinema and it took me years to understand why I didn’t look back on it with favouritism. I’m unsure what I thought of it for a decade, after seeing that excellent video it finally clicked. Reloaded is dossapointing but mindlessly fun in places. Revolutions is plain bad. That can be argued as an opinion but I feel the critics got it right reviewing it.

​@late night logic I actually saw your comment and watched the video before commenting. That's what reminded me of the points I mentioned. Otherwise the video points mostly to personal opinions and ideas that I simply don't agree with. And let me be clear, when I was a kid I found the movie quite boring. Still fine, but I didn't rush to watch the last one. It took me years before I was ready to appreciate what it actually offers.

Super fun fact: Carrie-Ann Moss spent months doing martial arts and flexibility training to be able to pull off that Scorpion Kick legitimately without the use of any wires or CGI, which is pretty well known but during the first movie she broke her ankle doing the jumping crane kick in that first action scene, and decided to work through the pain of it for the rest of shooting, and while training for the second movie she straight up broke her leg and after recovery still learned how to do the scorpion kick. Carrie-Ann Moss is an IRL Bad Ass Good Girl.

One scene I really liked was during the freeway chase when The Agent pulls open the top of the car with everyone in it, The Ghost twin and Morpheus temporary work together to shoot at The Agent. You can see Morpheus was shooting and The Ghost was aiming. Even if they go back to fighting right after, they both instinctively knew The Agent could easily kill them so they worked together to try and stop a bigger threat. Edit: Just fixing some grammar mistakes.

I never understood why the sequels were hated. You couldn't repeat the success of the 1st movie. THAT would have sucked. They had to go deeper, explore the mythology they created, and not be afraid to tear it apart. Btw, you should also do the Animatrix as well.

Maand geleden
GeneralBolas

I'd say the fundamental problem is this: the Mythology of the Matrix was never deep enough to be explored. The Matrix-the-film created exactly enough backstory and lore to justify itself and the story it was trying to tell. But it wasn't good worldbuilding. It was like a movie set; it looked great from a particular angle, but if you see more of it, it looks quite fake. Good worldbuilding needs to start off with a proper foundation. And The Matrix-the-film wasn't really that. The trick The Matrix pulled off was to straddle a very fine line. It was a film about a group of people in a world, but the elements of that world were designed to fit into allegorical ideas that the audiences could relate to. Here's what I mean: In the world of The Matrix, seeing past illusions and systems of control literally allows one to leap high and if you're good enough, to even fly. But this also is analogous to the idea of seeing past illusions and systems of control in the real world that gives you power in our world. It's a perfect mix. Indeed, the most frequently maligned part of The Matrix-the-film, the whole "people are batteries" thing, is a place where the analogy breaks down. On the allegorical level, this is a great idea. People build systems of control for this exact reason: to extract energy from the underclass and build their own civilization off of it. But within the universe of The Matrix... that's just not how thermodynamics works. It doesn't make sense that the Machines would do this. My point is that the sequels, in focusing on trying to build on a world that simply is not designed to be built on, manage to both have relatively weak worldbuilding *and* lose the balance that The Matrix-the-film managed to strike.

My Personal explanation for why Neo is able to stop the Sentinels is that the machines themselves are Part of the same mainframe that also hosts the matrix. Therefore, Neo can of course manipulate the Code the machines are running on. Would've been better if they spelled it out like that instead of "Some of your abilities carry over into the Real world", when in reality it's more of the opposite, that the overwhelming presence of the machines on Earth makes Part of their Digital World bleed into the physical one, and how that can be a weakness once someone who is made to fully comprehend the system the machines created figures out that the collective machine empire is just another layer of the Matrix.

I remember seeing this in theaters on opening night. The entire audience was cheering during the action sequences, especially when Morpheus got redemption standing up to an agent. No, it's not a perfect film, nor could it possibly live up to the expectations we all set after the first one. But that's mostly on us, the viewers, rather than the filmmakers. Our own hype can easily get in the way of simply enjoying an experience. It's pretty hard to see something for what it actually is when all you do is compare it to what it's not.

I don’t remember where I heard it, but someone said that the rubbery-ness of the 100 Smith fight could possibly have been a fault of The Matrix, it couldn’t handle the rendering, cpu overload, things like that seeing as how it was the first time anything like that happened, and that is why the scene looks the way it does. Just a theory of course, but I like it

It was just the quality of the effects at the time. They hold up better than most do. If they were going for a fault in the matrix the should of made it obvious like things glitching and neo looking at himself wondering why he looks rubbery. If that was what they were going for make it obvious to the audience. The average movie goer will just look at this and think the effects were bad.

I dislike how post-hoc that is. Imagine if the scene had shown that overloading. Every time a new wave of Smiths rushes in, patches of the scene suddenly go pixelated and only slowly recover as more resources are allocated, faces blatantly glitch one at a time from live action face film to the CGI models, things like pigeons and background clutter glitch out and are simply removed to conserve resources. It would've been much cooler to watch, and would've provided an explanation during the scene. However, it would still suffer the problem of not explaining later stuff with even more Smiths.

I believe the Merovingian “causality” scene was a reveal of how the “one” is possible created by the Oracle. It lines up with his dialogue of how choice is an illusion by those with power. He used the cake to manipulate the coding in that women. Who’s to say the Oracle didn’t do same with the cookie offered to Neo.

I think his point in that scene is both more subtle and more obvious. He's highlighting the fact that Neo and the crew... aren't actually making any choices. The Oracle told him "go here and do this... or don't". That's not really a choice; "don't" means Zion will be destroyed. He's pointing out how the Oracle is using the knowledge that she is keeping from them to keep them under her control. She offers the illusion of choice. The Architect offers a similar choice: everyone dies, or a bunch of people die and everyone else remains a slave. That's not supposed to be a choice, and the whole purpose of the system of the Matrix is to funnel humanity's options to that: agree to continue to be slaves, or we annihilate every last one of you. Neo is only really able to make choices when he has power, when he can offer the Machines something they can't get otherwise. And the Oracle knew that, which is why she created Smith to begin with: to be the threat that the Machines that they would *need* Neo to defeat. To unbalance the equation.

The matrix reloaded is truer to the vision and filmmaking style of the wackowski’s. The original is a masterpiece, it’s flawless, sublime, it’s only flaw is that it is a studio film. What I mean is, they had to simplify aspects of the script so that the audience could understand the concept of the matrix. Machines using humans as batteries was incorporated as a rewrite of how the machines enslave humans because Warner brothers didn’t understand the wackowski’s original notion of machines harvesting humans via biofusion. The original film is tight in execution, exposition and exploitation. It’s the perfect synthesis of cerebral storytelling, metaphysical subtext, cutting edge visual effects, groundbreaking special effects, everything works cohesively as a “movie”. Reloaded is far more left-field in nature, hence the discrepancies in storytelling and filmmaking compared to its predecessor. The film suffers from over written exposition, execution varies it feels more pretentious then profound but it’s because this is the matrix at its most authentic. It’s not the sequel we deserved but the one we needed. I appreciate it so much more now then I did upon its release. The film has aged well, when you perceive it with clarity. The writing involving characters such as the architect, the oracle, Morpheus, the Merovingian, is exquisite. The juxtaposition between the matrix and Zion contributes to the authenticity in world building. The stakes concerning the impending invasion of the machines is suspenseful to say the least. I think reloaded is one of the best middle chapters of any trilogy. The middle chapter is supposed to be the most problematic out of the three for a reason. You could say it’s fate but fate it seems is not without a sense of irony.

This is one of my favorite movies. It always has been. The fighting scenes dont have those fast cuts and Keanu trained hard to memorize as much of the choreography so that there wouldnt be. I loved how the movie had so many different action set pieces. I loved all the philosophy conversations too. The discussion of whether we actually make choices is one of my favorite topics of conversation, and this movie comes to mind every time. It feels strange telling people this is my favorite matrix movie and them just not seeing what I see. Ive always wanted to see a jedi do cool stuff through a whole movie, and this satisfied that itch.

@AFL Rookie yeah, Chad Stahelski. He was mainly used for any major wire work that was required; two examples from The Burly Brawl alone that spring to mind are the big forward flip Neo does into the courtyard and the wall slam before he rips the pole out of the ground towards the climax. I think Chad also did stand in for Keanu in some shots purely due to being faster than him, but don't quote me on that. For the most part, tho, Keanu dedicated himself to doing the majority of the work, which impressed Chad enough that, when he moved to directing and started preproduction for John Wick, he was pretty adamant that Keanu was the only fit for the role. If you can get a copy, hunt down either the initial 2 disc DVD releases of Reloaded and Revolutions (which might be a little difficult to find these days) or the Blu-ray trilogy boxset. Either one will have the behind the scenes docs, but I think the Blu-ray editions have different ones to the DVD releases (I'm not sure if they carried all the DVD BTS features over to Blu-ray).

I know I'm being a little nitpicky with this, but the section you're referring to is The Second Renaissance (Parts 1 & 2). However, I agree that it's up there with Final Flight of The Osiris as the best part of the Animatrix. The history and lore expansion builds on what the first movie gave us, and yeah, seeing the brutality of the machines final reckoning of our species was haunting. Imo, for the most part, it's good to great, but parts like Kids Story and Matriculated (which I think is the one with the surface team in the real world reprogramming one of the machines?) I found boring. World Record was fun, but throwaway, as was the one with the detective (the name of which I'm blanking on ATM). The rest were decent. Regardless of my opinion, on the whole, it does add some depth to world, so I would also agree that it should be a required part of a trilogy (soon to be quadrilogy) run.

Regarding the vague explanation of Neo's powers in the real world: this is actually foreshadowed by Neo's conversation with Hamann. Hamann muses that the water recycling systems of Zion are essential to their survival, but he has no idea how they actually work. He just accepts that they do. He immediately likens this situation to his inability to understand Neo's abilities. It's sort of a meta shorthand. We aren't going to get an explanation for everything, that isn't what this story is about. It took me ages to make this connection. I'm still scratching my head about how it works, but I've come to accept that I don't really need to, either.

This trilogy is a masterful blend of specific action heroes with generic themes. So many action movies isolate their hero so that only a few can truly imagine themselves in his/her role. This movie makes the themes so all-encompassing that anybody can see it as a part of their worldview. If you're religious, Neo makes a stellar religious stand-in. If you're choosing to come out of the closet (sorry if that terminology is dated), this is a fantastic representation of the struggles one might feel in making those tough choices. If you love superheroes (or super villains, for that matter), this movie has what you need. If you consider yourself intellectually-minded, the expository dialogue will tickle the corners of your mind. I love action and I love exposition dumps. I graduated with a degree in Psychology, partially because of how this movie made me want to dig deeper into the human mind. I know that it is not the best in terms of overall quality and I have extremely high hopes for Resurrections. However, the trilogy will always have place in my collection of films that I will re-watch constantly.

As someone who was born in 2000 and was a kid when the world was hyping The Matrix trilogy, I watched all the Matrix movies together when I was about 15-16, I'd watched them before with my father but the nuances of the movie went over my 7 year old head when I did watch them. I never understood the hate Reloaded and Revolutions got, sure are they not as mind blowing as the first movie? Probably not, The Matrix was a watershed moment in cinema and nobody could be able to replicate the sheer brilliance and the reveal of the first movie but did the Wachowski siblings still create an utterly mind blowing awesome trilogy? You bet your goddamn ass they did, I love all 3 Matrix movies and I'm so glad this channel finally decided to do all of them. The story always flowed logically for me and although there are few people who do love the last two movies, I'm glad we exist. Thank you CinemaWins.

Most hate is just that, hate. An emotion that warps a person's reality and twists their perceptions. Once twisted it's hard to see anything clearly. Love works the same way. That's why a professional reviewer tries to leave personal opinions based on their feelings out of a review. And then they judge the movie based on facts that come from experience of analzying endless numbers of movies. Most of my favorite movies aren't very good compared to others but I like them anyway.

To them The One is practically Jesus, so it seems reasonable that a good chunk of the people who've met Neo or even so much as heard stories about him would try to emulate their savior in whatever ways they can.

I always felt like the agents could dodge bullets because they were a part of the matrix. Gun, bullets, all programmed and their physics determined by the matrix so Morpheus fighting agents can happen because he isn’t pre programmed so they can’t predict how he will move and attack.

I always figured the Agent's bullet dodging was an automatic response. Like when your hind brain jerks your hand away from a hot stove before your frontal lobe is even aware of the pain. They might not even be able to stop their dodging, that would be an interesting thing to see.

Or, better yet: the bullets fly completely depending on Matrix laws, so Agents are able to bypass them. But the red-pilled people? They move independently and are breaking the Matrix's laws, especially Neo. The Agents have to depend on their enhanced physique and reflexes to keep up instead.

It's really interesting that you mentioned how you think Lambert Wilson would make an excellent Bond villain, as he was actually considered for Bond himself when Goldeneye was being cast.

I haven't looked into it much, but I'm guessing that humans can't live in/rebuild the real world after achieving peace. The machines were not destroyed. I am thinking the Matrix is reintroduced to help people cope/save the humans, with Neo and the gang taking the place of agents under the premise of doing it right. It'll be a "Are we actually the bad guys?" kinda movie.

That was the angle I was hoping they'd go into. Morpheus himself says that humanity won't be free till the matrix is destroyed. So, what's going to happen to all those people still plugged in? And he even himself says that humans "scorched the sky". The machines are literally giving them the tools to survive and thrive, and only go after them when they become enough of a threat to the machines again.

I always liked Reloaded (and Revolutions, they are best watched together), it is undeniably weaker compared to the first film, but that doesn't mean it is at all bad. The Matrix was beyond expectations, an 11 out of 10, if you will. So Reloaded only being 7 or 8 feels like a let down, but nothing could ever truly compare to the first film. But it is a fantastic film. The whole trilogy, when watched in one sitting, or over a weekend, is just sublime. Everything fits together, Reloaded/Revolutions don't feel like an ad hoc addition, but rather the scripted outcome of what The Matrix set up. My worry is that The Matrix, and the trilogy, will be a one of a kind kinda deal, and the upcoming fourth film just won't stack up. But, admittedly, having since watched more Wachowski films and projects since Revolutions, I feel confident in expecting it to be at least good, if not great.

Other wins: 4:13 I love the way the Matrices' mech movements lag behind the operator. The operator is always about one second ahead of what the mech is doing - for obvious mechanical reasons which are ignored in nearly all other mech fights. Realism win! 4:58 Notice Morpheus says he doesn't believe in hope. He ONLY speaks in beliefs and certainties... until the highway chase, when he *hopes* that he was wrong about it being suicide. It's the one time he openly expresses uncertainty, which adds to the tension. Win! 8:50 Not being smug, but a lot of people *did* work that one out. The Oracle being genuinely oracular could only make sense if she were a program/machine. I like that the Wachowskis recognized this, and didn't make a big deal of the reveal. Self-restraint win! 11:15 It's *superficially* a yup moment, but it's actually Neo's first big mistake. He SHOULD have realized he was outmatched and flown off. But he can't let himself lose to Smith, and escalates. This leads to him almost truly losing. The music really helps convey this by getting increasingly frantic going forward, even when Neo seems to be winning . It's a great fight-based storytelling win. 19:18 ALSO, you wanna talk "verbal kung-fu"? That's this scene. It's not just a data-dump. The Architect is DELIBERATELY being as smug and confusing as possible as a way of disempowering Neo. And it almost works. To a certain extent, he's doing to Neo with words what Neo does with jumpkicks. He has the *meta* high ground. (If you can't tell, I'm one of the few people who genuinely liked Reloaded from day 1. :-D)

I have been watching them for years and they give me a new perspective on movies I've seen before to find more to appreciate, while also making me want to watch movies I haven't watched yet. A great example is with this movie, I've never seen it (I know, crazy right?) but I definitely want to even more now.

My very first reaction when I saw you'd done The Matrix was excitement at the fact that that meant this was coming next. As someone else said, this is my favorite of the trilogy (I'm not alone! Who knew?!?) for multiple reasons, most of which you covered. My two complaints were that first, I terribly missed Tank (who I loved) and was so upset that they'd killed him offscreen (though I do also love Link), and second... I'm with you on the "yuck" of the dance scene. But there was so much that outweighed my personal complaints. Seraph became one of my favorite characters in the series, we still had the first Oracle, and I was very, very proud of myself for answering The Architect's "why you're here" bit with "You didn't answer the question" a *microsecond* before Neo did. Can't wait to hear your conclusions - especially since we'll get more insight on this movie included! (Edited for typo)

Just a side note about 12:36 : In France the movie was classified as not advised for children under 12 because of the violence, not the language. We really don't care about swearing, at most the movie can be considered "not advised for children under 10" if there is a looot of cursing. The worst ratings we can get is forbidden under 16 or 18, but that's extremely rare, even the most violent hollywood blockbusters like Logan or Deadpool were -12 when they came out in theaters.

The one true let-down I had in this series is that I never got to see The Merovingian physically confront Neo. He's said to be one of the oldest programs in the system. His power/influence is supposed to be expansive and, by his own admission, he's survived all of the previous incarnations of The One. Now sure, he could just be a survivor because he's a runner since he simply ran away in this film never to be seen again, but I REALLY wanted to believe that he was just a sleeper bad a** who didn't fight because he didn't have to since he had werewolves and ghosts (the twins) on retainer. I thought for sure that Neo was going to back in into a corner in Matrix 3 and find out that he was more than just a pruning pretty boy. But alas.
