Is everyone giving it a miss after seeing Reloaded?
I haven't been able to see it yet because of work, but I'm going when I'm free (Tuesday).
It's no big deal, I'm just a little suprised no one has brought it up yet. *shrug*

I've heard from quite a few people that it was actually worse than the second one. In any case, I already wish I had the $9 I spent on teh ticket and 2 hours of my life back from watching the 2nd one, I won't be risking my time or money on the third one.

they should've stopped after the first one, 2 and 3 are [poopy -ed.]
Revolutions turned out to be a disappointment in its own way. There were too many things that were left unexplained that could have been been elaborated (how Neo could separate his body from his mind, unconsciously jacking in
how he defeated Smith
what exactly he was seeing in flames (light patterns), etc.).
Some of the fight scenes (the diggers at Zion especially) were long and could have been shortened for the final cut where more story/explanation could have been put in. I found myself leaving a lot to my imagination because of the loose (if any) explanations offered by the story.

He seemed to have some innate sense for Machine code being executed. Anything controlled by the Machine AI was visible to Neo. It IS weird, but can you come up with anything better?
It pisses me off, I have too many questions....and when you have too many questions it usually means that there are too many holes in plot or idea. To give an excuse as "parts were left open for interpretation" is just to say that they had no way of explaining it themselves so they just through some things into the movie to add to the story.
Who wants to explain the ending to me...Smith replicates himself into neo...and then everything just starts to vaporize....I don't follow..
The Architect and the Oracle are talking at the end... they question the peace and how long it will last...what do they care, they are just loaded programs, they'll just get reloaded eveytime the matrix gets destroyed...
The humans that remain in Zion...I thought their goal was too free all the humans...well if they have peace with the machines, but the machines still need the humans for power supply, so they are still creating them and having them live in the Matrix, isn't that what the free humans want to stop? so how can they have peace...The robots should know that another war will start again like it did before, so now that Neo is gone, why do they honor his peace offer, why not finish off Zion and not allow it to be rebuilt again.
How does Neo go in and out of the matrix w/o jacking in...how did the squirly kid from the animatrix unplug himself without help, and why is that even important, he didn't even need a role in the movie.
How does Agent smith do the things he does? True he is a program and can change the code of the matrix, but if he could leave the matrix in a humans body once, why didn't he have multiple copies of himself leave the matrix before he fights Neo.
When there are tons of Agent Smith's around at once, why do they just sit back and watch? If one Smith alone can almost kick the living shit out of Neo, think what 1,000,000 could do.
The first movie was good, cause it got you thinking, and the holes that were there could be overlooked as the idea and plot played out well. Not saying that major questions like this werent' in the original but these questions, could have been avoided to still enjoy the flick....but with the 2nd and 3rd in the series I just feel like it turned into a big flashy money maker.
Trinity's death scene. Just when on and on and on. I was twiddling my thumbs half way through - die already!.
They didn't need to re-do the "lobby scene". I got bored - you knew what the outcome was going to be, and what it would look like.
Too many new questions raised. The Smiths, Neo's hand waving thing, the Station, The French Man, etc, etc.
Factual (or seemingly so) errors - like the hovership. How did that get above the clouds?
Action too intense at times - Strobe lights are fine in moderation, but can ruin the experience and give headaches if used too much.
