And I Thought "Reloaded" and "Revolutions" Were Bad

After "Reloaded" and "Revolutions" I knew that the odds were better than good that "Resurrections" was going to be awful. Still, I went against my better judgment and went to see it. Part of it has to do with a false hope and part of it has to do with the dearth of movies to watch in theater.

The movie is called "Resurrections" because "duh," Neo (Keanu Reeves) is resurrected along with Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss). I won't even go into the ridiculous mumbo jumbo spouted out to explain their resurrection. It all made as much sense as the Architect did in "Revolutions." Just know that Neo was magically back as was Trinity. Morpheus (Yahya Abdul Mateen) was back in some cyborg manner and Agent Smith (Jonathan Groff) was a younger version. I think it's telling that both Laurence Fishburne and Hugo Weaving were not a part of this project. I think they saw the script and thought better of having such a stain on their resumes.

You know a movie is bad when they spoof themselves within the movie. You'll occasionally see that in vapid sequels that are fresh out of ideas such as Scream 3 and 4 or "New Nightmare" (A Nightmare on Elm Street 6). In the beginning of "Resurrections" Neo was back to being Thomas Anderson. He was a game designer who had designed a game called "The Matrix." Basically, the three previous Matrix movies were all just designs of his. His coworkers spent way too much screen time discussing what the Matrix was supposed to mean and what a new Matrix video game should be. It was quite pathetic seeing the movie try so hard to make it seem like everything that had occurred was all Mr. Anderson's imagination. It was a forced plot if there ever was one.

To further drive home that the movie wasn't going to generate anything fresh and new, there were frequent insertions of scenes from Matrixes past. There were probably a dozen or more clips from the older movies thrust into "Resurrections" to either refresh the viewer's memory or add content that was actually good. All that does is denigrate the movie at hand because you're constantly being reminded of how good it was. It's as if the production team gave up already and conceded that what people yearn for is the original but we will never be able to amount to that, so here are some clips from the original as a supplement. Even the way the archive footage was shoehorned in there showed a lack of creativity or concern.

I could rant on about the putridness of this movie, but what would be the point? It was long, slow, boring, talkative, emotionless, and unexciting. Nothing about it was new, fresh, or stimulating. The fighting was the same as were the outfits and copious bullets fired. This movie was just a stale remake dressed as a sequel, but I deserved what I got because I knew better.

neo and trinity return

Greetings again from the darkness. One could view being number four in a trilogy as similar to being the 'third wheel' on a date. Or one could view it as a new beginning, with a familiar foundation. Your way of viewing will likely depend on whether you choose the red pill or the blue one. This time out, it's only writer-director Lana Wachowski, without her sister Lilly. Their groundbreaking first film in the series hit screens in 1999, and it's been 18 years since the last. Lana co-wrote this script with David Mitchell and Aleksandar Hemon.

There is a stunning opening action sequence that is so well done, most will feel like it alone is worth the price of a ticket. But it's another of the early scenes that really caught my attention and had me laugh out loud and applaud the audacity. Keanu Reeves stars (again) as Thomas Anderson, a renowned game developer best known for his award-winning games (actually a trilogy) 'The Matrix' from 20 years ago. His work on a new game called 'Binary' is interrupted when he's summoned to the office of his boss played by Jonathan Groff. Anderson is informed that Warner Brothers, their corporate owner, is not interested in his new game, but instead demands another game in 'The Matrix' series. This is either self-parody or Lana's passive-aggressive revenge, either of which is a bit humorous.

Anderson regularly battles the blurring lines of reality and sees a psychiatrist (Neil Patrick Harris) who prescribes blue (of course) pills to help the patient deal with daily life. There is no way I'm going into the story lines that are tossed around here, but there will be fans who are happy and fans who aren't. In fact, this one teases with so many elements that are left hanging, we aren't sure whether Lana is setting the stage for more to come or merely having fun stirring the pot.

What does matter is that Neo and Trinity get the shot at a legitimate relationship/romance. The return of Carrie-Ann Moss is treated with all due respect. She shows off her acting skills, which, let's face it, are far superior to the lead actor here. Together they make an interesting couple and we pull for things to work out. Jada Pinkett Smith returns as Niobe, and some new characters are introduced as well. In addition to Jonathan Groff and Neil Patrick Harris, the most intriguing of these is Jessica Henwick as Bugs (like Bunny). The newly imagined Morpheus is played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas scores a couple of scenes as Sati. Oh, and the answer is a definitive yes - we do miss Hugo Weaving and Laurence Fishburne (despite some of Lana's creativity).

Neo and Trinity and special effects are the real draw for the series, and though this one is littered with self-parody, one of the most disappointing elements comes in the fight scenes which fall short of expectations. While I enjoyed the multiple story lines, even the partial bits, it's the big finale action sequence that had me convinced the shark had officially been jumped. It's drawn out far too long and repetitive at times, and with the 2 and a half hour run time, you have earned the right to question "The One".

Opening in theaters and on HBO Max on December 22, 2021.

The Metax Returns

Of the four theatrical Matrix movies, this one wasn't bad, but I'd still rank it as third best.

All the way through this reminded me of Scream 4 where I thought it was good, but did I want it? Nope. Have I seen it more than once? No. Probably never will. This M-IV also reminded me of 2021's other two unnecessary fourth entries: Candyman and Ghostbusters Afterlife. Both 2021's Candyman and The Matrix Resurrections contained about 10% recycled footage from (mostly #1 of) the original trilogy. And all three also ask you: "Hey! Remember Part One?" over and over and over and over to the point where I was wishing I watching the original movie again, instead.

The opening and premise presented: I loved. Well, until it dragged. They did sadly draw out the wonderful explanation of the new world everyone lives in post-part 3. It was then I realized: Oh, there's not going to be a lot of action in this action sequel. And, unfortunately, I was right.

But, again, it's fine. If you liked the others, you'll most likely be fond of this. The plot, story and old characters are exactly as you'd think they would be. I'm not sad I saw it, but like Scream 4: I think this was a one and done viewing.

***

Final Thoughts: And yes, I do hope they don't make anymore. I probably won't see any more of them even if The Matrix is back for another trilogy.
