The Matrix Reloaded
The storyline of this movie continued perfectly from the first movie. First time watching, it might be sort of hard to understand and follow but more watches it’s easier to understand. The main talk with Neo and the "creator" was the most in depth part in the movie to me. Where you figure out what’s really going on.
The action is probably the best part about the whole movie. GREAT fighting scenes, the fighting is set up so well and the effects are awesome. There wasn't one fighting scene that I thought wasn't good. So you’ll like those parts.
The sound was good overall. Sound effects and music all ties in perfectly together. So that’s also a plus.
Overall, this is a good sequel to the first Matrix movie, and it’s definitely worth watching and checking out. If you’re a fan of the first Matrix movie, this one is for you.Read full review

The Matrix Reloaded
Neo (Keanu Reeves), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) continue their battle against the machines in THE MATRIX RELOADED, the second chapter of Larry and Andy Wachowski's MATRIX trilogy. As RELOADED begins, Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus arrive in Zion with new crew member Link (Harold Perrineau), and discover that 250,000 dreaded sentinels are close to launching a massive attack on the underground haven for the liberated minds of humanity. When Neo seeks advice from the prophetic Oracle (the late Gloria Foster), their meeting leads to a sorely outnumbered fight with Neo's old nemesis, Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving). While the sentinels advance on Zion, various battles within the Matrix continue to escalate, culminating in an extended highway chase sequence involving Morpheus, Trinity, more imposing agents, and two new adversaries--the relentless white-clad Twins (Adrian and Neil Rayment). With RELOADED, the Wachowski brothers delve deeper into both the realm of the Matrix and the apocalyptic, machine-controlled future reality. Initially giving ample attention to both the romance between Neo and Trinity and to the vast underground city of Zion, the film eventually delivers one stunning set piece after another, with the amazing martial arts sequences and jaw-dropping effects of the first MATRIX elevated to even more astounding heights. In addition to the returning cast of Reeves, Moss, Fishburne, Weaving, and Foster, Perrineau and Jada Pinkett Smith make for welcome new additions, and Monica Bellucci offers up an unforgettably sensual appearance. Larger than the original scale on every level, THE MATRIX RELOADED is a thoroughly entertaining sequel that will leave viewers eager for the trilogy's conclusion, THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS.
If you liked the first matrix you will without a doubt like this one too.Read full review

A good buy
What can I say? This is an awesome series! I couldn't wait to get this after purchasing the first one on eBay. I don't go to the theaters, but stay at home and watch my own copy and eat my cheaper popcorn and soda. Thanks

Definitely inferior to the first Matrix
Although it has all the hallmarks of the first Matrix -- the same characters, slow-motion action sequences (in 'bullet time'), leather trenchcoats, and all that, the Matrix Reloaded is a distinct letdown after the first film in the series.
Although mayhem abounds, the story seems long-winded, unfocused, and fairly pointless; character development is close to nil; the 'philosophizing' is shallow and sometimes sophomoric ("for every effect, there is a cause" -- nah, I never would have guessed that on my own), and the only vaguely interesting spot in the film is Agent Smith, who -- ironically enough, since he is nothing but a machine -- seems like the only character with a personality and gets most of the humorous lines as well.
Worst of all is the blatant "we're not going to tell you what's going on, here's a cliffhanger" ending -- complete with a message of "To Be Continued." Crassness doesn't sink any lower than this; naturally, movie series leave something to be decided in a sequel, but each film is usually constructed so that there's some kind of resolution to the current plotlines. The Matrix Reloaded just cuts the plot off in mid-sentence, leaving it feeling not only bland and unfocused, but unfinished and unsatisfying as well.
The only reason to give this 2/5 rather than 1/5 is that Agent Smith brings a bit of ironic humor to a performance that's otherwise as limp and predictable as leftover broccoli.Read full review
