Movie The Matrix Revolutions (2003)

20170826:
Today I watched The Matrix Revolutions and thus completed watching the trilogy. Having recognized most of the scenes, I assumed that I watched the film once before. However, it's possible I only started watching from some point in the movie onward.

Neo (Keanu Reeves)

Overall, I was disappointed with how the series ended; however, this was partially due to my desire that the plot would remain consistent with the possibility that they were living in a matrix within a matrix. Instead, the ending was a anti-climatic.

Thus, while I thought the second movie was decent, if I were able to go back and time and make a recommendation to myself, I would suggest that I only watch the first movie.

Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), Seraph (back, Collin Chou)

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 99% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

Instant Comments:
The first fourteen minutes of this movie more or less deny the theory that Neo's behavior is the result of a matrix within a matrix: 1) the girl noted Neo's brainwaves were like those of someone still jacked in and 2) Morpheus thinks Neo is still in the Matrix (even though Neo isn't jacked in)

Niobe (Jada Pinkett Smith)

How can jumping across an open room even if it's from the opposite gravitational orientation a smart idea?
"I don't have time for this shit."
"Temet nosce" = "Know thyself"

Neo

Very confusing conversation between Neo and The Oracle
Interesting, a Google search says that the actor playing Bane was chosen for his resemblance to and ability to impersonate Hugo Weaving.
"I can see you."
"It's all right Trin. But I think you're gonna have to drive."

Oracle (Mary Alice)

Hehe. "Dig this."
Holy shit. The captain's face.
"Captain, I didn't finish the training program." "Neither did I."
A little cheesy. "Neo, I believe."

Link (Harold Perrineau)

Considering the amount of forces the machines actually have, they could have destroyed Zion whenever they wanted. And it wouldn't have mattered if Zion had all their ships and people defending the city.
Agent Smith:Why, Mr. Anderson? Why, why, why? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting for something? For more than your survival? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know? Is it freedom? Or truth?

Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving)

Perhaps peace? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Anderson. Vagaries of perception. Temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love.

Neo and Agent Smith fight

You must be able to see it, Mr. Anderson. You must know it by now. You can't win. It's pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Anderson? Why? Why do you persist?
Neo :Because I choose to.


Merovingian (Lambert Wilson) and Persephone (Monica Bellucci)
