I watched it on HBO when I first signed up.

The good: it was the 2nd best Matrix movie.

The bad: calling it the 2nd best Matrix movie isn't really saying much.

Distant second. All of them, 2, 3 and 4 were relatively equal and nowhere near the first one. Granted, the first one was a hard act to follow.

I finally got around to finishing this movie the other night. I started watching it ~5 months ago when I had a one month trial of Crave for 0.98$ I got about 2/3 of the way through, and didn't finish it before the trial ended. I bought the 4K UHD disc for 15$, and decided to watch the last 1/3 of it. Mehhhh. It was.......not good. To say the least. Of course the ending sets up a 5th movie, but I really hope they don't bother making one.

The story is trash. The only great thing about the movie is that it was shot in 6-8k and looks amazing PQ-wise and the Atmos track is top notch. So 10/10 for PQ/AQ but 1/10 for everything else. I’ll give it a 1 because Keanu is badass.

No. Just no. Reloaded was a MUCH, MUCH better movie. Revolutions was genuinely disappointing. A terrible movie. But nothing(*) prepared me for the abomination of Resurrections movie. It's not just me, IMDb scores support my own ratings.

(*) Sense8 and Cloud Atlas are big fat hints that the brothers sisters went completely off the rails.

In fact, the most helpful IMDb's user review from RIK-22 is spot on:

First part of the movie, tried to be some kind of self-ironic introspective on the state of movies and even made a direct reference to a Matrix sequel. Now the problem with that kind of commentary is that you effectively break the 4th wall or ruin any idea that this isn't just a movie.

The film then stumbles towards some kind of plot about the new matrix and Neo/Trinity but fails miserably.

The ending is a bore fest of mindless dark action (I mean filmed in the dark) with no tension or point.

Did they have a budget of 10m and a timeline of a week to make this film, it certainly looks like it.

The original Matrix, in my opinion, is the best film ever made. It has perfect pacing, actions, beautifully realised, cool conversations, properly filmed and choreographed action scenes and even manages a philosophical theme, with all that going on. There is tension, people may and do die, there is a purpose to what they want to achieve. It had a serious tone. It established a set of rules, which is crucial to this type of movie. It was an against-the-odds film.

In this, the fights are meaningless, badly filmed, just thrown in for no reason. Neo now just has a super-power and that's it. There is no tension, no one dies, nothing is really at stake, the FX are terrible. When Neo realises, he has Kung Fu abilities again, he has zero reaction, nothing.

Did anyone believe the Japanese train was real? The casting is awful, did anyone care about any of the characters and their terrible acting. It looked rushed, cheap, and amateurish.

The mocking of the original film and it dialog was sacrilege and childish. Showing actual film footage and claiming it was game footage, really?

I suspect the comment at the beginning of the movie, about having to make a sequel, was genuine, so they made the worse film they could.
