Reloaded: terrible

Do not see it. That is all I can say on the matter.

Remember how the original the Matrix was a shitty film made spectacular by astounding special effects? Remember how, back in 1999, the CG and film technique (see: 360º camera trick, bullet time, et al) was unlike anything we’d ever seen on the big screen and it blew us away? Yeah, the Matrix: Reloaded is just like that… except that was four years ago, and those once–mind–boggling special effects are now commonplace; leaving you unimpressed and ten bucks the poorer.

Nothing new or groundbreaking in the visual effects department, still a shitty plot, still a shitty cast (though Harold Perrineau Junior remains a personal favorite for playing Mercutio in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet) and nothing god–damned new.

As I said, do not see it. You’re wasting your time, your money, and you’re encouraging this kind of shit from future generations of terrible directors/screenwriters/actors. Thank you and goodnight.
