"The special effects were fine, but the Architects speech was just muddled solipsistic pseudo-philosopy trying to give the film a lofty intellectual edge when, at it's roots, it's a low to middle brow action flick. The explanation at the end just came over as pretentious and over long."
Heh. I tend to agree with some of your sentiments, but since there was nothing relating to solipsism in the Architect's speech, I enjoy the fact that you used the term to give your post a artificial lofty intellectual edge ;).
I somehow received my reloaded order from Amazon midday yesterday, a day early! I watched it last night. The CGI is a bit more evident at home on your television. Nonetheless a fun movie. There are a couple of 30 minute documentaries on the making of the film and the making of the highway chase scene. The rest is commercial fluff, and sadly no commentary track.
Burly man, highway chase are worth the price of admission though. I hope they don't go the "matrix within a matrix" route in the conclusion. 3 weeks 'til revolutions. Should be fun, but I won't be first in line. I still think the original flick stands well on its own, and was more strikingly original than the sequels could hope to be.This comment was edited on Oct 14, 15:11.
