The story is actually pretty decent but so much has to happen that it feels like you're jumping very quickly from place to place. What makes it work, though, are the actors and their relationships to one another.
Frankly, a little disappointing. I like Norton, Damon and Malkovich but I just don't really understand what this film was about. I guess following your heart. And kind-hearted Russian cut-throat gangsters.
Reloaded sets this up well, not in terms of the plot but in acclimatising you to the fact that the focus of these films is now on rogue programs. Now that we're over that hump, this film almost works, if you're willing to meet it on its own terms.
