Movie Info

Co-written and directed by Lana Wachowski, this sci-fi thriller series sequel revisits Neo (Keanu Reeves), who seems to be feeling disconnected from his reality as he discusses his personal issues with a therapist-like Analyst (Neil Patrick Harris). As he's also apparently taking some blue pills, old characters from his past start reappearing, offering him a red pill and some missing truths about his actual reality. Carrie-Anne Moss co-stars as Trinity, with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Morpheus and Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe.

Critic Reviews for The Matrix Resurrections

All Critics (311) | Top Critics (67)

A personal vision writ extremely large, with a still-singular graphic splendor and juicy themes of identity, consent, and the limits of conspiratorial thinking.

It honors the legacy, but it feels more mature and lived-in.

January 7, 2022 | Full Review…

I enjoyed thinking of this film more as a form of media criticism than I enjoyed watching it as a movie.

January 7, 2022 | Full Review…

Effortful explanations of original characters' reincarnation by different actors mix with sluggish world-building and reflexive riffs on fiction, reality, and nostalgia. What's more, the action is routine; the sense of wonder is missing.

Matrix Revolutions was supposed to be the finale. It's good that it was not. Will Matrix Resurrections be the end? Maybe, maybe not. Fans will hope the star keeps checking his text messages.

December 30, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

With one exception, the action sequences in Resurrections are plentiful but perfunctory, as though Wachowski were fulfilling a contractual obligation. Instead, the movie's pulse resides with the characters and the feelings that flow between them.
