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.…
This is well and good, but it needed a scene where one of the Agents looks at Neo zooming through the air and says "He flies now?!...He flies now." How will the audience know they can have a laugh in between all the action?
I can also tell The Wachowskis absolutely love that final shootout in The Wild Bunch. Now I’m off to eat that French cake that makes you cum.
