The Matrix Resurrections | Reviews

It’s really good, it's outrageously bananas, it's a wildly literal commentary on sequels, reboots and more - with absolutely compelling roles for Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.

Forget about understanding The Matrix Resurrections - just enjoy it.

A weird, hilarious, romantic, messy, violent and upsetting manic spectacle, Lana Wachowski’s sequel-reboot-remake encapsulates every emotion of this supremely messed up year.

(An) incredibly funny meta-sequel/reboot.

Too tortured, too inconsistent, to offer a cohesive experience, much less an enjoyable one.

Resurrections... frees itself from convention with heart-pounding panache.

This Matrix (is) the rare resurrection resulting in more than a sad IP zombie.

Where the original film was explosively innovatory, this is just another piece of IP...

Quite a few fixes short of a full upgrade.

It happily revisits and remixes all the familiar elements in ways that seem more attuned to the needs of characters than to the demands of spectacle.

If you loved The Matrix and hated the sequels (or simply found them unsatisfying), go see this one. Have a blast.

A reboot with some striking philosophical flourishes... but... also the weakest and most compromised Matrix film yet.

Essentially a greatest hits concert and a cover version rolled into one...

It's a do-over without a full share of wonderment, but still a lot of fun.

The Matrix Resurrections may be a bumpy ride but it's still a trip.

It's... entertaining in big bursts but ultimately a little hollow.

A modern update that builds on its legacy with surprising and often funny tenderness.
