    The Matrix Resurrections

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I really enjoyed the first hour or so of THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS where Neo is stuck inside The Matrix (again) and can't seem to tell the difference between reality and virtual reality. Quite frankly, I wish this is something that the first film had done in the very beginning. Instead of revealing what The Matrix is so early, we should've spent more time with Mr. Anderson/Neo (and perhaps Morpheus and Trinity as they try to find him?). Instead, that film…

    "This macho thing is overrated, kid," snarls Eastwood near the end of the film. The kid is Rafael (Eduardo Minett) whom Eastwood's character Mike has been tasked with bringing back from Mexico to Texas to reunite with his dad. The boy tells him, "You used to be strong, macho." Eastwood replies with the speech heard in the trailer. Coming at the end of any other movie, this pivotal speech might have seemed superficial. But it works here precisely because of…
