Reloading the clichés
Bigger, flasher, more expensive, packed with redundant parts and overused special effects - it was hard to feel involved in The Matrix Reloaded in the same way that I was sucked into the world of the original film. Parts of the story were laughable - the acknowledged Superman ripoff, others cringeworthy - the messianic call to arms by Morpheus, followed by a rave scene unworthy of the doomed Zion.
All the same, it was good for a laugh. I'm not sure that I'd want to give them another fiver to watch the third wringing out of this material.
Mind you, the cod Christianity is fun to decipher.
