Paul and I just returned from our late viewing of The Matrix Reloaded. A few quick thoughts: The fight scenes were wowowowow awesome. The relationship between Neo and Trinity was well-fleshed-out (*ahem*). Zion is not exactly a holy Christian or Moslem or Jewish enclave. The plot twists were completely unexpected, but nevertheless sensible in retrospect. The mystical bizarreness of the first movie was resolved. Many unanswered questions linger for the third movie.
Sometimes, I fear high hopes for a movie. I wasn’t disappointed tonight though. It was awesome.
