‘The Matrix Reloaded’ is a Mess

Sometimes bigger isn’t better.

It had been over ten years since I watched The Matrix Reloaded and I didn’t have a strong recollection of it.

I remembered it not being as good as the first film, but I didn’t realize just how bad it was until I revisited it again.

This film picks up where the first one left off. Neo (Keanu Reeves) is the One and he, along with Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), and others, continue…
