SRP $29.95 2.35:1(16:9) DOLBY DIGITAL 5.l1 WARNER BROS
:

Sequels are by their very nature, hard to live up to the creativity of the original.  With the exception of the first “Godfather” sequel and all of the “Lord of the Rings” films, most sequels have been horrible.  The first “MATRIX” film not only holds up, in some ways it even gets better with repeated viewings. Unfortunately, both sequels get consistently worse! They’re like “GODFATHER 3” to the original “GODFATHER” in comparison!  If not for the (too)short appearance of the beautiful Monica Belluci in both films, there’s absolutely nothing about either worth watching.
 
Whereas the first film was bold and provocative, the sequels are predictable and a muddled mess! Picking up right where the previous sequel(Reloaded)left off, Neo and his friends continue on their quest
to save their world.  But, if viewers thought “RELOADED” was too dark, they’re going to be even more disappointed with “REVOLUTION,” as it’s far grimmer throughout almost every scene.
 
Sure, everyone can predict there’s going to be a major self-sacrifice called for and whom will most likely be up for it, but practically “everything” about this film is predictable, and there’s never a real
sense of shock over anything, whereas the original film had plenty of surprises. 

WARNER BROS. has preserved the original 2.35:1 aspect ratio of “MATRIX: REVOLUTIONS.” This 2-disc set offers the film on the first disc, with supplements on the 2nd.  The image quality is outstanding,
offering solid colors and impecable detail in even the darkest(there are plenty)scenes.  Fleshtones appear natural throughout.

WARNER BROS. has presented a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix for this release. While the 2nd half of the film features enough discrete effects and low bass to pack a real whallop, most of the first half is restrained
in comparison to the previous films.  Dialogue is always intelligible and free from distortion.  It’s also a little disappointing that WARNER BROS. hasn’t opted for a “DTS” option on any of these films!
 
The first disc also offers teaser trailers and two full-length trailers.
 
Extras on the 2nd disc, include a promotional documentary , a featurette devoted to the film’s CGI effects, a multi-angle featurette offering multi-angle views of storyboards with the actual scene.
 
Several still galleries and web-links are also included.
