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.
