The New Matrix

I have yet to see it, but the reviewers are giving it a sound thrashing. Some quotes found on Fark today:

"So disappointing they may as well have bussed in Ewoks to save Zion."
-- Christopher Null, FILMCRITIC.COM

"Too bad the Wachowski brothers marry their mind-blowing visuals to some of the worst war movie clichs ever written."
-- Sean O'Connell, ECLIPSE MAGAZINE

"Though visually spectacular, 'The Matrix Revolutions' is a disappointing climax to what had previously been one of the great movie series of recent years." - Peter Sobczynski, CRITIC DOCTOR

"The Wachowskis... lean so heavily on concepts and designs from Aliens... that you half-expect to hear Bill Paxton wailing 'Game over, maaaaan!' in the background."
-- James Sanford, KALAMAZOO GAZETTE

"It's actually at its best when it's the most pretentious. Its loud and repetitive action sequences are impressive enough, but we've seen them all before."
-- Steve Rhodes, STEVE RHODES' INTERNET REVIEWS

"For all the ponderous philosophizing found in Reloaded, Matrix Revolutions is surprisingly straightforward and more than a little cheesy."
-- Bill Pearis, CITYSEARCH

"Theres a warmed-over feeling that permeates what should have been the defining film of the trilogy."
-- Rebecca Murray, ABOUT.COM

"Please someone, get me the blue pill. I want to forget that this ambitious and noteworthy series is ending so weakly."
-- Nell Minow, MOVIE MOM AT YAHOO! MOVIES

"A mixture of frantic but empty action and solemn, even more vacuous philosophizing that ends up simultaneously pretentious and puerile."
-- Frank Swietek, ONE GUY'S OPINION

"While superior to Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions still can't quite justify turning a stand-alone classic into a misguided trilogy."
-- Alex Sandell, JUICY CEREBELLUM

"The final chapter in the Wachowski brothers' trilogy about stylish sunglasses, leather trenchcoats, freshly baked cookies and Wire Fu."
-- Jon Popick, PLANET SICK-BOY

"After all is said and done, I wish they would have left the trilogy to one."
-- Danny Minton, KBTV-NBC (BEAUMONT, TX)

"Seems like Matrix Reloaded with a little tweaking."
-- Harvey S. Karten, COMPUSERVE

"With The Matrix Revolutions, the Wachowski brothers have managed to pull off something nearly impossible. They've made a movie about the end of the world that leaves us entirely indifferent to the outcome."
-- Chris Vognar, DALLAS MORNING NEWS

"The Matrix Revolutions sucks."
-- Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE

"Reloaded was certainly a lumpy, gaseous treatise of a movie, but viewers of Revolutions may find themselves looking back on it fondly."
-- A.O. Scott, NEW YORK TIMES

"There's relatively less of the clunky alternation of big action and static speechifying that stalled Reloaded. But there's also less storytelling fervor from the Wachowskis."
-- Lisa Schwarzbaum, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

"Better than Reloaded, but the thrill is gone."
-- Michael Rechtshaffen, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"How did something that started out so cool get so dorky?"
-- Manohla Dargis, LOS ANGELES TIMES

"Louder, longer, more expensive and dumber than its predecessors, Revolutions is a mediocrity that will provide escapism only to those who head for the theater exits."
-- Colin Covert, MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE

the emotional impact of this movie is zilch."
-- Paul Clinton, CNN

"The Matrix trilogy is so named for a reason: The most compelling aspect of the movies is that way-cool space. Revolutions spends too little time there."
-- Leigh Johnson, HOLLYWOOD.COM

"The Wachowskis have served up passable entertainment... but they fail to deliver on their own mythology."
-- Laura Clifford, REELING REVIEWS

"Visually stunning but a huge disappointment. The resolution sucked! "
-- Victoria Alexander, FILMSINREVIEW.COM
