Almost 20 years after the first trilogy, a new Matrix film arrives. It's mostly a commissioned film, a sequel made because that's what you do with popular IP. I never cared much for the franchise, so it didn't really pain me to see it mistreated like this, but I do feel for the many people who do loved the originals, as Resurrections is a truly poor effort.

Neo is comfortably back inside the Matrix, living the life of a computer programmer who designed the first three Matrix games. Of course his stay there is limited, as a young rebel team yanks him out again and brings him back to the real world. A lot has changed since his last visit to reality.

Everything here screams redundant sequel. Too many lazy references, not enough novel ideas, actors who appear old and tired, bland action sequences. The entire film feels contractual and corporate, very different from the first one. Maybe that was Wachowski's way of getting back at her bosses, but she didn't have to punish us for that.
