In all fairness, my comment about Dark City in no way advocates the extrapolated commentary of the merits/or lack of merits on Matrix.

I am only suggesting that another more stylistic and intriguing film, made prior to, was snubbed in all the hoop-la.

The Matrix Films

Rate the three films.

Matrix: 9/10
Matrix Reloaded: 7/10
Matrix Revolutions: 6/10

Overall, I thought the trilogy was OK. The first one is the only one I would consider to be really good.

The second one was awesome until you see part 3. If part 3 had been stronger, part 2 would still be good.

Matrix 10/10
Matrix Reloaded 7/10
Matrix Revolutions 4/10

The Matrix - 3


Never bothered with the others--the first one was awful enough. Ugh. Damn no-talent hack Wachowski Brothers. And that awful V for Vendetta! Ugh.

I had an English professor two semesters back who I had a great deal of respect for. But she had us write our final paper for the semester comparing The Count of Monte Cristo with the V for Vendetta film. Naturally mine ended up being quite the rant...

What a way to end the semester. Bah.

I'm with katarn07.

The car chase in the second one was pretty awesome. The third one was like Superman 4. I just try to forget I saw it.

I've honestly only seen part of the first one. I know, it's sad, because the first one at least seems to be quite revered.

Yeah, the third was terrible compared to the first one. The only thing I liked about it was the final fight between Neo and Smith.

The first is one of the best cyber punk/sci-fi type films...eva!

The last two were terrible. There's only one scene I even like in the third one.

The Matrix: 8.5/10

Reloaded and Revolutions: two reasons why this trilogy isn't considered a classic film trilogy (a la Indiana Jones, Star Wars) and has been mostly forgotten
