THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS "Honest Trailer" Wonders How Far Up Its Own A** The Movie's Story Can Go

Screen Junkies has released its "Honest Trailer" for The Matrix Resurrections, and as you might expect, they're not going easy on the disappointing sequel to the original trilogy. Check it out here...

The Matrix Resurrections opened to mixed reviews last month, and after bombing at the box office, it's clear this movie isn't going to be the opening chapter of a new trilogy. 

There were some things for fans to appreciate, but for the most part, it failed to live up to expectations. That's a point made in this "Honest Trailer" from Screen Junkies. They relentlessly mock Lana Wachowski's return to the franchise, highlighting all the places it went wrong, and just how disappointing it was that Trinity didn't get to be a badass again until two hours into the film.

The ridiculousness of a character called Bugs saying "What's up, Doc?" is mentioned, as are the lacklustre action scenes and heavy-handed messages about the world today. Needless to say, if you loved The Matrix Resurrections, you're probably best off not watching this one! However, one very valid complaint is the shocking state of the visual effects used in the movie.

In our 2* review of this fourth instalment of the franchise, we concluded by saying: "A wholly unnecessary epilogue to The Matrix trilogy, Resurrections retreads old ground, delivers mediocre action, and proves itself a tough pill to swallow despite a decent enough love story that, alone, isn't enough to justify revisiting this franchise. Time for a reboot."
