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.

Well, Matrix Resurrections wasn't really my cup of tea. It felt like the cinematic equivalent of the word 'whatever', simultaneously a frustrating and functionally perfect way to end an argument. It is at its most intriguing in the first act, but when it gets to the stuff frankly a lot of people are excited for it pointedly frustrates. The choreography, blocking, and cinematography of the fight sequences take all that fluid style and aesthetic from the original trilogy and replace edit it with a grimy procession of mid-shots and unmotivated cutaways that make the action suddenly become the worst element of the film.
There is a trade-off though, in that what has traditionally been the worst element of the saga, the Neo-Trinity romance, becomes the best of Resurrections. It is the one …
