Kierre's Review of The Matrix Resurrections 2021 ★★★½


Watched Jan 09, 2022

The Matrix Resurrections is a reboot of the classic Trilogy staring Keanu Reeves set in a universe where the world as we know it is all fake and created by machines. The real world is in the future where humans are forced to live under ground and are being hunted by the machines. In this film, which is about 20 years later after Neo AKA "The One" has saved the real world by rebooting the Matrix. He's now a Game Designer of a game called "The Matrix" which basically a game about his life. He now takes a "Blue Pill" everyday and sees his old love interest Trinity ( played by Carrie-Anne Moss), daily at a local coffee shop, but she has no memory of her former life. The film also stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Neil Patrick Harris. Most audiences have been divided on this new film as they expected more of the same that we got in the previous film. This film is a bit different as most of the film takes place in "The Matrix" only neither Neo or Trinity have any special powers. This film plays more like a drama if anything but there is just enough action to keep any fan of the series interested.

I personally felt this was a great reboot to the franchise. It wasn't perfect, as I personally enjoyed it more than "The Matrix Revolutions" but not quite as good as the first two films. My only small gripe is that they didn't bring back Lawrence Fishbourne to play "Morpheus" but I still enjoyed this film quite a bit.
