You can never recreate The Matrix no matter how meta you get. It's good to see Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss back together, but the film just tries too hard and the magic of the original just can't quite be reached. I liked a lot of the new additions - Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Johathan Groff and Jessica Henwick all work well - and the visuals are slick as ever but it just never comes together. It probably would've been a great video game, though.

This cannot help but feel like a 'greatest hits' type of sequel. Much of it feels familiar because it resets itself to recapture the moments people liked in the original movie or either of the sequels. The action is shot well enough but it does not feel as epic or revolutionary as those earlier movies. If anything, it's nice to see Carrie-Anne Moss in a big budget movie again. Out of the new cast, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II does the best. He does seem like a younger Morpheus. This may sound odd but the movie seems more like a romantic-drama that happens to be set in the Matrix.

Look, it’s one thing to be meta, but making a good movie is also another thing. Out of all the Matrix films, this had the weakest action scenes. The creativity and originality were seriously lacking here.

This long awaited return to "The Matrix" is more of a regurgitation than a resurrection, with the broad philosophical jargon of the previous sequels mixed into a glaringly obvious amount of unnecessary meta-ness.
