Bloated third installment of the sci-fi trilogy which finds Neo (Keanu Reeves), the computer hacker turned messiah, venturing into the heart of Machine City in order to stave off an assault on humanity's last stronghold by an army of killer droids bent on the extinction of mankind. While full of mind-blowing effects set against a moody Orwellian backdrop, writer-directors Larry and Andy Wachowski prove that the third time is not a charm, completing their cyber-noir cycle with this joyless orgy of visual pomposity, its metaphysical musings mired in a maelstrom of noise and stylized violence, none of which is attached to characters we care about, making its banality all the more obvious. Much sci-fi violence as well as recurring profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
