Very few films leave an indelible mark on the sci-fi scene like Matrix. For all the parodies and excerpts it has produced, The Wachowski’s signature work has stood the test of time. Its sequel, however, is not meticulously remembered, even if there are some spectacular concepts and sequences present in both. But when Matrix Revolution conclusion, few can expect the story to continue, or at least for the story Neo / Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves) to continue. It’s not over yet Matrix Recovery came out about 20 years after the original to prove, at least, there are some clever ways to make a sequel to a trilogy.
The most surprising element of Matrix Recovery is a movie that doesn’t want to fit in the same box as its predecessors. Director Lana Wachowski, who will be flying solo in this fourth installment, can’t help but care about fan service and she still delivers a story that will appeal to fans who have invested in the series for now. Revival accepts the challenge of continuing a story after such a finite ending while acknowledging that, quite literally, Warner Bros. Would love to see more movies.
There are many mysteries surrounding story about Matrix Recovery so it’s not worth going into specifics. Three films in, viewers may be ready to give this latest installment a chance or they’ve jumped off the train somewhere between Agent Smith’s interrogation and Neo’s God-like sacrifice. It is worth discussing how carefully the first half of the film is structured and how the comments about the idea of the sequel and the reboot are made. From casting (reacting?) Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Morpheus to the fact that Neo and Trinity (Carrie Ann Moss) seem to know each other but can’t remember why, there’s so much about it. Matrix Recovery‘that first half was a pleasure to decompress. The film also doesn’t recount anything that happened in the first three films; it includes even some of its more quirky elements.
However, once that mystery starts to become clear, the film turns more easily and is a bit squishy as a result. It’s not the past Matrix the film does not follow the journey of a traditional hero, but the connection between ideas Revival discovery and the final story it follows are not entirely linked. For example, the initial meta commentary on the sequel was pushed aside in favor of something more relevant to Matrix suitable and not Revival.
Some campus in the past Matrix the film is also not as sharp as the fourth film. The action sequences are not nearly as lively and the settings are barely memorable, even with enough money to satisfy the audience of the blockbuster. The film seems more concerned with deciphering complex ideas than providing mindless action.
Character in Matrix Recovery not nearly as memorable as in some of the earlier films. Most of the existing characters are just receptacles where important plot points are explained, and the new characters represent concepts more than anything else. Errors (Jessica Henwick) have the most to do with the story from both an action point of view and an explanatory point of view but we don’t really learn enough about them. Even if it’s 2 and a half hours long, there’s still a lot left unexplored.
With that said, it’s clear that Lana Wachowski is telling a very personal story to Matrix 4 and in a way that makes each character part of the same whole. We don’t learn too much about any of the characters, but each description tells us a lot about Lana. Just like The Wachowski’s personal journey has informed the way we see Matrix The current, Matrix Recovery feels like a personal statement about everything from the politics of filmmaking to taking the reins of one’s own story.
Matrix Recovery is an unexpected fourth item that can divide most of its elements. It challenges the audience to move away from preconceived notions before reaching out and then asks them to really think about the concept. Matrix 4 and what that could be. In some ways, it’s absolutely brilliant, and in others, it feels like it’s just trying to get from point A to point B. But in a genre brimming with formulaic blockbusters, it’s true. It’s great to have something that feels personal and thought-provoking. The world doesn’t need another Matrix but the film Lana Wachowski offers more than justifies its existence.
