Im hoping someone here will be as excited as i am about the latest Matrix installment coming out very soon.

Last time there were hundreds as excited as me, but no-one seems bothered this time :(

Anybody ready to burst because the wait is too much?

I am very excited about Rev.

I think Reloaded was vastly misunderstood and people are too busy getting over it to truly comprhend the greatness that is the Matrix! :)

I just saw the movie last night....I was lucky enough to get a ticket to a sneak preview.

I won't give away any information or ruin the movie for anyone...but I will say this:

The movie is very, very good. It does a great job of bringing everything together.

No sneak peek for me this time but i saw the last one early, whihc just makes the wait harder this time for me :(

Im glad that there are a few folks who share my excitement.

Glad to hear that this film rocks, i watched an interview with laurence fishburne this morning and he said that too, but he would do wouldnt he! ;)

The few reviews I've seen say the film sucks. But I'm easily entertained - especially by multi-million-dollar special effects so I'm still looking forward to it.

After the dissapointment / boredom I felt with the last movie I'm finding it really hard to get excited about this one.

No doubt I'll get round to watching it in the end.

>>>> dissapointment / boredom I felt with the last movie

Reloaded, the second movie, was a setup for the Revolutions, the last in the trilogy.

I personally wasn't disappointed by Reloaded....it just got me excited for Revolutions.

I've been so disappointed with movies that SO MANY people said were "great" that it's hard to get excited about movies anymore (e.g., pi, LOTR). The reason the movie studios are crapping their pants about file sharing is not because people will download the movie instead of seeing it but because they will decide if they want to go see it based on the free download.

I think the main problem is that it was hyped as a mainstream movie. But it isn't...

Exactly! There is no doubt Reloaded and Revolutions could have been made into your typical bog standard matcho-man, predictable, action fest easily digestable by all. It would have been more popular with the public and critics.

Thankfully they didnt - they (wachowskis) made the film they wanted to make and not the film the public wanted them to make :)

I am very excited to see it!

We were just discussing it(the 1st movie) here and it's funny how everyone interprets the movie so different. The guy I was sitting next to said "I didn't like it, but I rarely like SiFi movies".

And I never thought of the movie as SiFi! I thought it was a brilliant mix of action and philosophy that I've never seen before. I mean, the movie made we think and feel different afterwards. Yet it was also fast, entertaining, great outfits, cool soundtrack, and it just had attitude, ya know?

Anyways, I'm going on Saturday night, can't wait to see how it all turns out....

Wow. This was a very bad movie.

It's still a requirement that you see it - you have to see how it all wraps up - but it's just nowhere near as good as it could have been.

I agreed very much with the Wired [wired.com] reporter who had this to say about the movie:
The Matrix Revolutions is no masterpiece. It lacks the depth of the first movie and undoes the logic of the second film. Still, if all that doesn't trouble you, having your senses bombarded by special effects and action sequences isn't a bad way to spend a couple of hours.

I though the Matrix was a poor kiddie flick the first time I saw it.

By the 20th time I saw the Matrix, it was obvious it was one of my fav movies of all time that ranks right up there with the classics like Forbidden Planet and The Day The Earth Stood Still.

I thought Reloaded was poor the first time I saw it, but the second time was excellent. The thrid time, it got worse again, so I've not risk watching it again.

I thought Revolutions was mediocure the first time I saw it last night. It's a video game setup. Obivously the brothers had run out of ideas by the third in the plot.

The creative genius that was the first 30mins of The Matrix, could not be sustained for 2.75 more movies.

All-in-all, lets be honest shall we? This movie was a Tron rip - Tron 2.0 if you will.

>>rip off of Tron

So, I will wait for this turnip to fill the video store shelves before I see it.

<!-- So, "Rocky Horror Picture Show", "Eraserhead", and "Apocalipse Now" where the last movies produced for people to enjoy them in theatre, or should I go out more? -->

P.S. "Cool Hand Luke" is fine on my TV screen...

Good lord such a video game set up. If it were done better I would be tempted to say it was post modern commentary. Instead it comes accross as cashing in the chips and schlock film making.

As a character neo does not evolve at all. The trainstation, which could have been a great short film if done differenctly, ends up being a complete cop out.

I hear the animatrix blows away matrix II and matrix III. I'm looking forward to seeing them.

Matrix 1 was absolutely awesome and I also liked Reloaded. I was really disaapointed with Revolutions because I think there are too many characters introduced. It might have been good if they were planning Part 4,5,6 etc. But for a 3 part movie too many characters are introduced in Part 2 and not enough justification to NEO in part 3. In fact there is a long time in between when NEO seems to be forgotten. These were my intial reactions. I got to watch reloaded & revolutions again and then see if i change my views.

Another tip to any potential viewers. DO NOT WATCH the movie in IMAX. The action sequences are too fast and complicated I guess for an Imax screen.

Who says there won't be? They left it wide open for future movies. The Wachowski brothers, and Keanu Reeves, have stated that they are done with it.....but it is still a possibility. I personally think it would be foolish not to make at least one or two more to answer some of the questions that Revolutions left unanswered.

Well I saw this over the weekend and thought it was better than the first one!

Until now the first one had been my fave, Revolutions is more then the first in every sense, more plot, action, characters etc.

Of course you do need to use your brain to really appreciate just how utterly amzing the trilogy has been and thats what most people seem to miss. shame :(

Saw it this sunday and I must say that we have been disapointed.

This third episod seems to be a 2.30 hour ending for the first two. The way I see it is that the second episod would have been too long if they had decided to do a proper ending, so they just created a third episod that don't bring nothing much but just takes half of your afternoon to end.

All in all I was very disapointed

You mean that the third installment in the trilogy was an ending? I'm shocked. :)
