Saw The Matrix Reloaded the night before last. Arse was seriously kicked.
From the few comments I had read while trying to avoid spoilers , I had got the impression that people thought the action was good while the philosophy was overdone — not blended in as well as in the first film, I believe was the sense of it. This was utter bollocks.
In fact, if anything the fight scenes, etc, were too long — though I did find myself chortling with glee throughout several of them.
If we hadn’t had to get back to kids and babysitter, I would have been in favour of going back in for the 11pm show — which is something I’ve never done.
I suspect that the mixed reviews had lowered my expectations sufficiently that I enjoyed it more than I expected too. So, all thanks to the mixed reviewers.
Roll on Revolutions.
