The Matrix Resurrections

The Matrix Resurrections ★★★½

Definitely feels like an added extension that wasn’t particularly needed, but it is fully aware of that at least. Having even just one of the creators call the shots makes this feel less like a boardroom-approved sequel though. The feel of movies then and now is so different that having these be linked in a series feels unusual to me. Might need to see it again some sunny day after I had all this expectations and guesses clouding my mind.

Still, Marvel hasn’t made anything with action this fluid or a love story so dreamy. After we see it here, I kinda wanna see Keanu stay clean-shaven again. Not that he needs to, but it’s…retro. Jonathan Groff surprised me and fills Hugo Weaving’s shoes pretty well. Good job, Groff!
