The best of the weak trilogy

The fight between man and machine continues in "The Matrix Reloaded," which is probably the best of the Matrix Trilogy movies.

"Neo" (Keanu Reeves) leads the people of "Zion" in what leads to the "Agents" attacking from the surface of the planet. However, one of these "Agents" is able to make his way into the human subterannian city.

Like the other movies, the acting is not as good as it could be. They are, however, much better than the other movies. None of the actors stand out, but at least some of the actors don't appear to just recite their lines in a cold manner.

One performance that stands out, but not by much, is by Laurence Fishburne. His performance is a little lighter, and more physically demanding than in the movie prior to this one.

The fighting scenes are spectacular. The only problem with them is that they look poorly choreographed, and many of the hits that land on persons in these scenes don't look like they would cause the slightest bruise or laceration. Another big problem with the fight scenes is that it is pretty obvious that the actors are wearing harnesses, as the people's movements are really stiff in the upper body.

The script has some holes in it. It also has poorly writen dialogue, which is part of the reason the performances of the actors are not that great.

Some of the questions from the previous movie appear to be answered, while others are presented. And the ending makes you want to see the next movie.

If you have seen the first movie, you may want to take a look at this one. Just be warned that you will have to see the next movie in the trilogy when you see the end of this one.

This movie may be the only one of the trilogy worth taking a look at.
