    yeah, they were great...there should've been more moives, they can't jsut end it the way they did thou, but o'well what can you do, hollywood ruins it for all us, like how can you not finish the star wars saga also.. why do they tell us there's more story so we know of it and can't go on with the story knowing there is more.. i loved the movie but it shoudn't have been the end...

    Well I didn't hate it, sure the second two weren't as good as the original, but rarely does a sequel surpass the original anyway. I liked them, and I think that people criticize them way too much, but then again people criticize everything way too much. I guess I can just enjoy movies easier than most.

    The first one was the best no doubt, the second one was good for action scenes and the third one was good too. I'm a film buff (my ambition is to direct movies and be involved in the movie making process) and i thought that the sequals were no where near as good as the first. The first had a refreshingly indipendant and well written screenplay, the plot was great and the fighting scenes were awesome. The second looks like it was made half assed, the plot is weaker, and the fighting and action scenes are computerised.

    The third had some redeeming qualities, in that the plot and script weremuch better and it had more characterisation than the second. And has anyone noticed the submiminal religeos themes in it (the way and possition and reason Neo dies, in the first when he flies of at the end he forms a cross, Neo is worshipped as a saviour like Jesus was, Cypher doing the same thing that judus did)

    Don't get me wrong, i like them, i just think that the sequals could have been done better.

    Well I'll have to buck the trend and disagree.

    First one was pretty good, the second was good action faire but in terms of being balanced with the third... nope. Terrible pacing. The third was medicore and a huge letdown for the series in terms of acting and ploting.

    The animatrix was awesome, i loved it, and it also had some vital plot points that go into the trillogy. The game has aswell!

    I agree about the placing of the third, it's like they were trying to get back into the style of the first, but pushing it a bit too much.

    When the theatre is demanding that a character should just shut up and die because it seems like their death scene is taking like 30mins, says something.

    I hated the last flick with a passion... but was it unwatchable, no.

    Maybe it's in the acting, or directing but something just makes that movie drag on and seem to last 5 hours, where as in a film like Lord of the Rings (just as an example) the croud loves it and want's more, even though it really does go for like 3 and a half hours. Personally i think they should have stopped after the success of the fist.

    The Matrix movies were good, accept for the last one! I hated the third one, but it was watchable. As for tthe Animatrix, if you know how to connect some of it to the movie and game, it's kinda fun.:)

    the animatrix was great, one of the few dvds i bought.

    but i was always ticked off that some plot points were tied to the games. I wasn't playing at the time and missed those tie ins completely...

    WELL lol my name should show how i feel, but i'll explain a little

    I totally agree with Cloon from teh first post he/she did to explain the reasons...and don't get me started on all the symbolisms and meanings of those movies..the mass quantities of them are mind boggling.

    I didn't like the 2nd for the same reasons cloon said, i didn't like the 3rd one 'cause neo died and well he may have been like jesus...but no reason for them to go totally w/ that route...he could've stayed alive as the mediator b/w the 2 worlds. and I think that it would've been better to follow up with his other powers. if you remember oracle was talking about how he's got lots of other powers he wasn't ready to use yet as..u saw in the 2nd movie cliffhanger. i wish they took that route..and the clothes he was wearing while in that subway area was exactly i think the same as b4 he flew away at the end of the FIRST film...alot of fans on forums were saying that the ending of the first was really the ending of the 3rd...and that would've been a more "matrix-esque" finish to the whole movie.

    as for that matrix online game..i heard it's a pooper..and i think they said that morpheus dies sometime in it..it already happened...just not sure when..but sometime in the game events he dies.

    there was no reason to kill trinity either in the 3rd movie...I think the 2 sequels which to me seemed like one movie(like the kill bills) was too overdone and lacked the creative look the first one had.. all that earth crap was nasty and boring .

    I actually liked all the Matrix movies, though alot of people seem to think differently. I thought they were all well done and didn't really see why so many people were so disappointed But I guess I didn't have the same expectations as everyone else, as I just was there to enjoy a good movie.

    Animatrix=awesome.

    lol, the matrix movies are the greatest movies of all time imo.

    And i think that leaving it at one movie would have been boring.

    1st. Clearly the best
    2nd. Good movie
    3rd. Good, but i think the ending could have better closure.

    not quite....the ending of the first gave you a feeling of coolness (if you know what i mean) and it could've stopped there, i mean the 2nd and 3rd weren't really necessary....

    I like the first one, as for the next two there was too much pseudo-intellectual philosophy, and too much use of the ?bullet time? Special effects IMO.

    well Ghost I would have to disagree with you. I am a huge fan of the series...but after the first one it could've ended. I mean you could've made the conclusion that neo was gonna save the human race in some way. Now the whole zion stuff was really done badly imo. The whole dance scene and them all looking like some sort of tribe. Some of the speeches were very boring and that morpheus speech was horrible...the 3rd one in my opinion had more story than the 2nd one...the 2nd one was just a big question mark from what you knew in the first movie and the 3rd didn't resolve it that well. I think the brothers over-wrote the sequels with too much information and not enough resolution...ie. the twins and the merovingian as added characters.

    How could they make money on that :amuse ??

    I think the sequels were important parts of the story of the Matrix. Just like they keep creating these new games of the movie to keep the story going. And just assuming that Neo would save the human-race is too thin, at least for me.
