'Matrix: Revolutions'
(Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, et al / R / 143 mins / Warner Bros.)

Overview: 'The Matrix: Reloaded' ends on a cliffhanger (concluded in this final chapter of the trilogy), with Neo (Keanu Reeves) out of commission (not to worry) and a swarm of Squiddies on the verge of attacking the last human city, Zion. Judging from the teaser trailer, expect more battles between Neo and Agent Smith (and his clones) and a final showdown between unplugged humans and Matrix-based machines.

Verdict: OK, to be honest, 'The Matrix Revolutions' isn't a terrible movie, but it is a tremendous disappointment! An improvement over its concurrently shot, babbling predecessor, it ultimately fails to capture any of that jaw-dropping sense of exhilaration that made the original such a must-see event. Luckily also there's relatively less of the clunky alternation of big action and static speechifying that stalled 'Reloaded' and it actually brings the saga to a satisfying close. Basically though, when the dust has settled we'll realize that the first movie inspired its fans to imagine that astonishing philosophical revelations would be made, and the series hasn't been able to live up to those anticipations!
