    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The Wachowskis have put together a mix of culture, kung fu, sci-fi and speculation, that makes them the warped wonders they are. When the film ends with a "To Be Continued," the hooks are in for The Matrix Revolutions on November 5th. Maybe I've been programmed to say it, but I am so there. show more

    Turns out the first "Matrix" was the One, but the second is still loads of fun. show more

    Salvaged by its rally, Reloaded seems less tired than "X2," its current sequel rival. But since its creators have said it's only half of a movie, we won't really know until The Matrix Revolutions arrives Nov. 5 whether this chunk is fizzle or sizzle. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    In this second installment of the trilogy, lithe bodies endowed with superior brains do all sorts of spectacular things, but the movie has the dead soul of a video game. show more

    All of the elements that made The Matrix a mass-cult phenom -- breathtaking physical gymnastics wedded to the brain-cramping mental and spiritual kind -- resurface in Reloaded. show more

    The philosophy is even less plausible. But the action -- oh, the action! There's nothing else out there like it. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Unlike "The Matrix," all fights and stunts -- including a 14-minute freeway chase -- have a disturbing tendency to repeat intricately choreographed action. Thus, computer technology and overkill supplant the ingenuity of the original film's action. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It is an immensely skillful sci-fi adventure, combining the usual elements: heroes and villains, special effects and stunts, chases and explosions, romance and oratory. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    The dazzling 14-minute chase includes cars, motorcycles, a couple of 18-wheelers - and nonstop martial-arts battles and leaps inside and on top of the vehicles. That scene alone will justify the price of admission for many. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    The thrill isn't gone from the sequel, but the surprise is, and it hurts more than you'd think. show more
