Matrix Revolutions -- You know, Reloaded didn't work for me in the theater, but on DVD, I have come to like it a great deal more. Revolutions, on the other hand, I enjoyed from the first moment. There are a few problems...the spaceship stuff seemed a bit Trekkie/Star Warsie, Laurence Fishburne was criminally under-utilized, and Trinity, well, I don't want to spoil things if you haven't seen it yet, but let's say she has a key scene that...just...would...not...ever...end...ever! Things I liked about it:

It's clear from reading the comments of others that much of the intent of the filmmakers may be blurred by the sheer density of the three movies -- Ebert's review revealed he still is under the mistaken assumption that Zion may not be "the real world," so even someone I generally trust and respect in regard to film may not grasp what the movies are about. Further, while he might not have found himself caring about Neo, Trinity, Morpheus or the rest, I did indeed sympathize with them and was interested in their struggle and fascinated by their world(s).

Ultimately, I think the films succeed. I have neither the desire nor the energy to get into any debates over the merits of any sci-fi trilogy, but as far as I am concerned, The Matrix films blew my mind and in the end held together quite well, and I look forward to owning and watching all three many, many times in the years to come.
