The Matrix ReloadedDirector: Andy Wachowski, Larry Wachowski
After creating an international sensation with the visually dazzling and intellectually challenging sci-fi blockbuster The Matrix, the Wachowski brothers returned with the first of two projected sequels that pick up where the first film left off. Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) have been summoned by Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) to join him on a voyage to Zion, the last outpost of free human beings on Earth. Neo and Trinity's work together has been complicated by the fact the two are involved in a serious romantic relationship. Upon their arrival in Zion, Morpheus locks horns with rival Commander Lock (Harry J. Lennix) and encounters his old flame Niobe (Jada Pinkett Smith). Meanwhile, Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) has returned with some surprises for Neo, most notably the ability to replicate himself as many times as he pleases. Neo makes his way to The Oracle (Gloria Foster), who informs him that if he wishes to save humankind, he must unlock "The Source," which means having to release The Key Maker (Randall Duk Kim) from the clutches of Merovingian (Lambert Wilson). While Merovingian refuses to cooperate, his wife, Persephone (Monica Bellucci), angry at her husband's dalliances with other women, offers to help, but only in exchange for a taste of Neo's affections. With The Keymaker in tow, Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus are chased by Merovingian's henchmen: a pair of deadly albino twins (Neil Rayment and Adrian Rayment). Filmed primarily in Australia and California (the extended chase scene was shot on a stretch of highway build specifically for the production outside of San Francisco), The Matrix Reloaded was produced in tandem with the third film in the series, The Matrix Revolutions.

The Matrix Reloaded is the best movie ever! Its action is unbelievable! This Movie beats the original! YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!
This movie is an action great . It's action sequences blew me away . I was on the edge on my seat with every scene . My favorite scene was the astonishing freeway chase . This movie is action at it's awesomeness .
You take your favorite movie and this will beat it. The Wachowski brothers put their heart and soul in this story and it's shown throughout the movie. A must buy.
I can't wait until this movie comes out on DVD. The movie was awesome! If you liked The Matrix you will love the sequel!
i'll give it 5 stars for animation and for the action sequences. but the rest doesn't deserve half as much because as the first one you are drawn into a world with a new concept and such. this movie is just a long version of basically nothing. i mean, if you are all for the eye candy, you'll love the fighting. otherwise, for a story it has no comparison because what it once was taken from -ghost in the shell- it has completely left behind. the fact that they distributed parts of the whole into the animatrix, enter the matrix game, and a part 3, shows that they dont know much about summing up a greater story to get the most important facts into one and then leaving the unimportant out. oh well, im still going to see the matrix revolutions to get understand the ending a little better, but lets hope the portrayal will be much improved.
The most butt-kicking movie with the greatest soundtrack ever.
The matrix trilogy is awesome i cant wait until the third. You havent seen anything until you've seen this movie.
This was the most action packed movie ever made, and the special effects were the best I've ever seen, However the plot was a little hard to understand.
This movie blew my mind away, if you loved the first the second is way better.
this is the best movie yet. The special effects are mind blowing, with unmatchable style. It is better than the first, and I hear that the thrid is supposed to be even better.
Special effects are great, the plotline is great, and the characters are wonderfull!!
The matrix was a great start (star wars), Reloaded (think Empire strikes back)a Terrific follow up with bigger budget, special effects and its story rasied some great questions. Shame that 'Revolutions' (poor Return of the Jedi) was a lousy payoff that answered none of the questions raised in 'Reloaded' and had a maddening climax. Shame a great trilogy had to end on such a bad note. Still the first two are great...
Let me say this if you loved the first martix, the first matrix is nothing compared to the sequal. Thats all that needs to be said
I have seen Matrix Reloaded 2 times and i must say that special visual effects are amazing, the best i have seen since Matrix part 1. I currently own Matrix revolutions and the action sequences in that one are a lot better then Matrix Reloaded but i must say that i like Matrix reloaded action sequences as much as i like the sequences of MAtrix Revolutions.
I saw this movie in theater and my mom thinks it sunks and i love it
What's really going to bake your noodle is how they ruined the ending to what could have been a great trilogy. The first two movies were awesome, and the last was a big disappointment. Go into the movie theater thinking you are going to get some answers, and you'll feel the same as me when its all over.
Just one word to describe matrix, AMAZING
The Matrix Reloaded is a movie about things going fast and exploding. Unfortunately, all of the fast things and explosions seem to have left little room for actual story. It seems that the infamous brothers decided to make a flashy special effects movie rather than a plot driven story. If you liked the first Matrix for its interesting philosophy and plot, you may want to steer clear of this dissapointing series of slo-mo fighting scenes.
The Matrix reloaded is the best Matrix movie yet and I cannot wait for the third. It is action packed from beginning to end. Like one big roller coaster ride that never stops. If you were waiting for a better time to watch any of the matrix movie series now's the time and this is the one!
Many times have I watched a film and often I have to wonder why those people had to make that film. The Matrix: Reloaded is one of them. The story started off very lamely and reached the zenith point of boredom not once but at many times. It is remarkable because I dozed off a lot and had to stop to get myself a good stretch of my eyes. No doubt, the special effects are extraordinary and surpasses the level that the makers have established in the first Matrix film. The question rises: What made the movie so boring? It is the special effect that has nothing to do with the story, and it is, to me, all show off of what computers can do. That is my version of the movie. If that is the case, why they had to make a movie out of this? I mean, where is the story? The acting? The point? I failed to find a thing in this movie. The movie also broke all the natural laws of physics. Worse enough, although there is a certain set of rules in the film, I am quite befuddled of what exactly are the rules. What I mean by the rules: When does one get cut and bleed? How does it happen? Why is there not anyone suffering bruises? The list of questions can go on and on. It is pointless to care. Examples of natural physics laws that are demolished: The people are not being affected by the strong head winds while top of moving vehicles, Neo being punched on the face while wearing glasses (common sense is that glasses would break), and perhaps the greatest one, when Morpheus jumps up off the moving vehicle and lands on it while the moving vehicle is in place (that's impossible cause Morpheus should have missed the moving vehicle once he jumps off; if you don't believe me, watch Mission: Impossible with Tom Cruise on super fast TGV and, you get the idea). The acting is utterly terrible here. The exception goes to Keanu Reeves since he acts that way (no point of bashing him). Plot, there isn't any. Draw any conclusions you want. In the end, the answer is gonna be: Who cares?
Simply cool!!!!!Better than the original.
This is a great movie. But you have to watch it twice to like it. When I first watched it, I thought it sucked. But I watched it again and I loved it. It had awesome visual effects and action-sequences.
In response to Joseph Burt, the Matrix is nothing compared to the sequel, it's so much better. Reloaded is a montage of flashy CGI, stupid philosophy that goes nowhere, and cheap action scenes that defy my imagination only in the respect that I can't beleive they thought this was actually good!!! Acting: terrible. Direction: what direction? Story: I already forgot it. The original relied on a cool, interesting premise never done before, and took time to set that up in a clever, brain-gripping way. The second movie, drops suspence and imagination for 'how many CGI effects can we cram into a 2 hour movie'. Swartzy is the king of action, not Neo, so stick with the sci-fi epic that the first movie created. Please, respond, I can argue much longer!
The Matrix movie was great, but this surpasses it by a mile. The effects are great!
