I got to see 'revolutions' paid for by the company's work-em-hard-and-give-them-circuses fund, a much needed break from reality. The movie, however, left me feeling underwhelmed. Yes, the CGI was amazing, but no, the story seemed to fizzle. Speaking of fizzle, that sizzling moment with the high voltage cable into Neo's eyes, with just an "owie" seemed way over the top. I could not suspend disbelief when that happened. And what was with the on/off pacing of the scenes?

I don't know. Maybe I was just feeling the after effects of a recent flu vaccine shot, but it seemed rather off.

My temperment:
disappointed disappointed
Current Music:
Beverley Hills Cop theme song

I was fine with the actors but wished for a little more on the back story. The machine world's programs saw the matrix as their refuge, their Zion of sorts.

Though the last lines of revolution leaves it open, I doubt if another sequel will happen. I think the brothers are on a merchandising phase: comics, animatrix, and other wares. I am satisfied it is over, much as I am satisfied when I reach the end of a large novel. It left me thinking.
