Actually I thought it was pretty good. Then again, I went into the cinema knowing it wasn’t going to be ground breaking and that I was to expect a Hollywood Block Buster spin-off from the amazingly brilliant original. It was definetly better than the second one, which I can’t even remember what it was about. On a reality perspective for the film, it’s not really the machines that are controlling the characters in the matrix, but the $$$$ they are getting for taking part in the film. I am glad they didn’t finish the film with the machines being destroyed, the clouds clearing and everything being ‘all right’ for the human race, although I don’t know if that’s because of the writers actually thought about the plot or if their minds were back onto the $$$$ and saw the opening for another Matrix sell-out spin-off.
