Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
This spiritual allegory pales in comparison with the two earlier films, but it still has some fantastic visual effects.

The Matrix Revolutions
The Matrix Revolutions picks up just moments after the end of "The Matrix Reloaded." Neo (Keanu Reeves) is in an unexplained coma. Morpheus’ (Lawrence Fishburne) ship has been destroyed and the imminent destruction of the Matrix and the last human refuge, Zion, is at hand. Neo has transcended the limitations of the Matrix and is able to wipe out machines while outside of the Matrix. His friends, Morpheus and Trinity (Carrie Ann Moss) enter the Matrix to find Neo, bring him to safety and then come up with a way to save Zion and preserve all of the people who are still plugged into the Matrix. Four-and-a-half years after the Wachowski brothers redefined cutting-edge cinema with "The Matrix," but less than six months since its disappointing sequel, they bring the trilogy to a conclusion of sorts.

Without the agents, the jeopardy is missing from the Matrix. You don’t feel like the characters could die. Whether they throw one punch or one million punches, the climactic showdown between Neo and Smith seems like a draw. The story does eventually bring the trilogy to an end and answers most of the unanswered questions, but it may disappoint all but its staunchest fans, of which there are many
