You know how you were afraid that going back to the graveyard and digging up the cold peaceful corpse of The Matrix may be a bad idea? Yeah.

Keanu and Carrie Ann Moss are still eminently watchable
The Design ethic is still cool, albeit now more retro-futurist
Neil Patrick Harris is in the film. Which is nice?
If I Were You, I Would Hope We Don't Meet Again
Utterly redundant narrative which undermines what made the first movie so special
Awfully on-the-nose dialogue with less subtlety than your average Nuclear bomb

The Matrix changed film-making forever with its smart blending of groundbreaking technology and anime-inflected storytelling, underpinned by a philosophical exploration of theories and ideas that were relevant to the audience of its day. It was a touchstone moment for a generation and the start of a whole new wave of cyberpunk cinema. The inclusion of anime tie-ins, video-game extensions to cinematic narratives, sequels, prequels, MMO games, and comics all made this probably the first cohesive, fully planned out, transmedia, multi-modal story-experience attempted on such a grand scale.
If none of that made much sense to you, then you’re not alone.
The Matrix: Resurrections stands on the black leather clad shoulders of greatness and entirely fails to do anything of interest up there.
Our heroic humans in the “Desert of the Real” Peta and Jill provide long suffering support to the two fools stuck playing dress-ups in the Matrix; Quinny and Dion. Will they manage to extract them before they become human D-Cel Batteries?
