the matrix revolutions on dvd

I finally saw The Matrix Revolutions last night after picking up the DVD. For some reason the store threw in posters and buttons which immediately found their way into the recycle bin once I got home.

Early opinion? While better than The Matrix Reloaded (no eight minute car chase though the Wachowski brothers still insist on action sequences that go on longer than Oscar award shows), it struck me as a largely forgettable movie.

The movie certainly captures comic book/anime imagery but as others have said, who were the characters and why would anyone care about any of them? There’s just no sense of any involvement with what is happening on screen.

In the end, The Matrix movies may end up being a lesson in what happens when you hype the pee out of something: a lot of fuss over nothing.
