I rather enjoyed Matrix Revolutions, but reading reviews of it has lowered my opinion of humanity.

"Choice is an illusion, created between those with power, and those without," said The Merovingian in the previous film. In the almost-opening dance club scene, Trinity flips the script on that by using her power to waste his ass. Which doesn't leave open, but rather answers the question of whether or not you can kill a program in the Matrix by shooting it in the head.
True, this also would have meant the death of her, Morpheus, Seraph, Neo and (probably) everyone in Zion, but her power, her decision, her choice.
The Merovingian blinked first.
Which is good, or the movie would have been a hell of a lot shorter.
It's a nice ride, if you actually pay attention to the dialogue instead of treating it as an annoying pause between Shit Blowing Up. Think Los Bros. Wachowski made the "mistake" of making an intellectual film in a deeply anti-intellectual society. Not that this was a mistake, or some error on their part; they knew what they were doing. Their power, their decison, their choice.
Figure you could do a better job, hey, convince a major studio to hand you a couple hundred million and (apparently) complete creative control and see what you come up with.
Otherwise, and I cannot stress this enough as it's going to be the theme around here for a while, shut the fuck up.
Let's see, what else did I like? Strong female characters who, unlike their counterparts in a James Cameron film, did not wear nametags reading, "Hi, My Name Is Strong Female Character, and I prove this by emasculating every male who appears in a scene with me."
It's written in very tiny handwriting.
Cute kid who wasn't annoying.
People of color who didn't serve as cannon fodder/nobly sacrifice their lives so Whitey might live.
Big Robot Battles.
Like VASpider, figure I'm gonna head to the nearest IMAX to catch the film again on the Great Big Ass Screen to appreciate the SFX better. And no doubt notice things that went past me the first time, since that's what happened with Reloaded.
If you're just in it for the 'splody, you maybe wanna wait for the DVD so you can fast-forward past the nasty philosophical bits.
Otherwise, give it a go.
