Basically, same as what Dan said, not surprising, considering I saw it with him and a few other guys :p.
It just, doesn’t grab you, at all. The first one, I was sitting there, watching, and it seemed to be a somewhat boring movie about a computer guy. Then all of the sudden, he’s in some crazy pod thing with wires and tubes coming out of him. Needless to say, that kind of grabs you, pretty dang hard, and keeps your interest ;).
It, was, well, a bit cliche with Neo not thinking he was the one till the end, and then going and kicking $@#$@#$@#. Of course, it was expected, but it was still good.
The second one was more of a good action movie than a thinking movie. It was cool though, cause it showed more about the world of the Matrix, and Zion, and I liked learning about that.
The Animatrix was probably the best, only because it cut the crap and told the story, or at least some of them did :).
The third one, was just not fun. It didn’t make you think. It, well, sucked.
I think it would have been a whole lot better, although it would’ve pissed people off, if in the end, Neo had woken up, and was at his computer, and he just saw “Follow the White Rabbit…” and it showed the scene from the first one, except instead of going to the club, he decides to stay home and sleep so he’d keep his job. That’d be the most amazing plot twist, and if done correctly, leave you to believe anything you want, actually making you think. But, I’m not a hollywood executive, so I can’t make movies :p.
Oh well, if there’s a fourth, I’m making sure to go matinee (like I did to this one) and/or just wait until I could “aquire” it…
