The Matrix Revolutions :- Watch The Matrix Revolutions on Youtube on Fire, It seems the brothers must have cribbed the original story for the first Matrix, since the last 2 show none of the original’s subtlety or interest, just rehashing and CGI multiplication. One evil robot, two evil robots, many many evil robots. Wow, what an idea, what creativity! Viewing the behind-the-scenes on DVD disc 2, you can see the reasons for the incoherence of story and scenes – the huge fractured design team, numerous ‘senior this’ ‘senior that’, all contributing to some corporate creation lacking any inspiration. Maybe the corporate cube-farm culture works for making cars, but it doesn’t seem to work for films. I would have liked to have seen another level of reality exposed behind the mindless machines, and why are they so mindlessly evil when they can think up such a subtle ruse to enslave the humans? It isn’t consistent. Why not introduce an alien ET culture who is really the master culture enslaving the machine culture by some similar hallucinatory ruse. Or, have the humans escape by transcending their bodies, as in all the traditional gnostic spiritualities. All in all, the Matrix is just a retread of the movie TRON. TRON at least had some insight into what the machine mindset and motivation for domination might be, e.g. tyrannical game addiction, much like the decadent Roman emperors. The Matrix, after the first film, gives no thought to any subtle motivations of the machine culture, preferring the tired cliché of ‘alien villain = mindless unrelenting violence’.
