The folks over at Ain’t It Cool News have three early fan reviews of The Matrix Revolutions up based on preview showings of the film. All three people who wrote say they weren’t big fans of the second film and went into the third with skepticism only to be blown away by the finale. Beware that the third review has some minor spoilers in it, but you’re warned of such before you get to it so don’t read it if you don’t want to know anything prior to seeing the film.
Personally, I’m not surprised that the third film sounds like it’ll turn out pretty good. I remember not being all that impressed with The Empire Strikes Back when it was released and it’s still my least favorite of the original Star Wars Trilogy despite it arguably being the best of the three films in some critics’ eyes. So I’m looking forward to seeing Revolutions especially seeing as we have an IMAX theater here in the Detroit area and it’ll be released there on the same day as regular theaters. What’s scarier than Agent Smith? Why a 4 story tall Agent Smith, of course.
