" Yes, Matrix is reloaded. Let's hope that in November it really fires. "
" In this first Matrix sequel, you'll see things you've never seen before on a movie screen, and that's all that matters. "
" A worthy sequel. "
" This picture never accumulates the sense of shared adventure that the first one did, and though the special effects are even better than before, they cannot be new twice. "
" A kinetic, digital feat. "
" In the face of almost unbearable expectations, the Wachowski brothers deliver a sequel that soars to places only hinted at in the original. "
" Worryingly, the longer this movie goes on, the harder it is to care. "

" You don't have to buy into the geeky mythmaking in The Matrix Reloaded in order to enjoy its kinetic pleasures. "

" Delivers, in spades, exactly what you should expect from a popcorn flick. "
" A sadder, wiser, more grown-up movie than its predecessor. "
" An ugly, bloated, repetitive movie that builds to a punch line that should have come an hour earlier. "
