The Matrix Resurrections (2021) Movie Review


Though boasting amazing CGI, The Matrix Resurrections (2021) did not resurrect my love for the old movies. Sometimes I thought it was paying homage to the previous films in the franchise only to add something outta nowhere like a Randy Orton RKO.

Still, I don’t watch a lot of romantic movies or even rom-coms in general but I liked the consistency of the heart-rendering moments of Neo’s and Trinity’s love affair.

Neil Patrick Harris both character and performance-wise I really admired, although Mindhunter’s Jonathan Groff seemed out of place until he revealed his role in the overarching narrative.

I really enjoyed reading Nick Allen’s review of the movie over at rogerebert(dot)com. And I echo his sentiment that watching The Matrix Resurrections might be a superior experience for those who have not viewed the previous live-action entries in the series.

Overall, The Matrix Resurrections feels like a fan-made film with a super-high budget (though that’s one of its most endearing qualities). The action and set pieces especially towards the end were mind-blowing. And even though I have nothing against fan-fiction being a writer of it myself, WB should seriously up its game in the originality department.
