Summary:
Neo, Morpheus, Trinity, and the rest of their crew continue to battle the machines that have enslaved the human race in the Matrix. In this final installment, the heroic war between man and machine reaches its final hour: the Zion military, aided by courageous civilian volunteers like Zee and the Kid, desperately battles to hold back the Sentinel invasion as the Machine army bores into their stronghold. Facing total annihilation, the citizens of the last bastion of humanity fight not only for their own lives, but for the future of mankind itself. Traveling farther than any man or woman has ever dared to go, Neo comes face to face with Deus Ex Machina, the power of the machine world.

Review:
Many critics often rate a movie based on its potential. The bar was set high with the release of the first Matrix film in 1999. Anytime you have high expectations a movie franchise sets itself up for a utter disappointment. Terminator 3 received luke warm reviews and grossed only modestly in box offices, but was much better than some of the other movies which grossed more or close to its box office total (Freaky Friday, 2 Fast 2 Furious). I am not necessarily saying that the critics are wrong in their bashing, but merely stating this film is much better than most of its counterparts in theaters at this particular moment. 

With this being said, I have to say there were many things I liked about this film. First of all the movie is fully polished and every scene is extremely well directed. The beginning of the movie begins with a scene at a train station, a crossroad motif, which was rather effective. It gives the machines and programs a human face (elaborating on emotions) which sets the movie up well for the ending. Secondly, the action scenes involving the sentinels and the Zion military are probably the best action scenes box office patrons will see this year with the exception of Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.  Another nice thing about this film is that there is a lot of little things in the film for the diehard fans to revel about. For instance there is a scene in the final action sequence which brings Neo into a room similar to the training room where he fought Morpheus in the first installment of the trilogy.

The only pitfalls of this film is its similarity to Matrix Reloaded which received luke warm reviews from critics. After the disappointing reviews from Matrix Reloaded the film franchise needed a bit of retooling, but since the movie was filmed all at once this wasn't really financially viable. This being said comparatively the final chapter in the trilogy is much better than the sequel and if you come in not expecting that much you will be in for a great experience.

I would also like to personally recommend watching the film on an IMAX screen because its absolutely amplifies the box office experience exponentially. You can find an IMAX theatre near you by going to http://www.imax.com
