Game designer Thomas Anderson has made a name for himself with his work on the “Matrix” trilogy of games. Although the world around him periodically falters and reveals his true nature, the former Neo sees a therapist, takes pills and practically convinces himself that it’s all a game of his imagination. But one day Bugs the hacker comes out and offers to follow the white rabbit again.

Now you can see how the Internet is actively talking about how bad the matrix is. Let’s discuss whether this is true or not.
I can definitely say that Wachowski is a troll. She’s got a very complex piece of work that has little correlation to the old trilogy. It’s a completely different film, putting a fat point on the end of everything.
On a personal note, I will say that it answered all my questions.
If you take this story as a full-fledged sequel to the previous films, continuing the idea and the story – you can not even include it. But what can you call it? Exactly, an afterword.
Right from the beginning they break down the 4th wall and tell us directly what the studio wants, what the people want. And the director breaks down what to give us in the end. And what Wachowski does is extremely brilliant – she extremely veiledly sends WB out, criticizes the entire sequel industry and bitching about herself (because the fourth matrix is also a sequel).
The movie is full of this kind of stuff. Banter, banter, self-shaming, and wall-breaking. But unlike one new movie, it doesn’t feel like a spit in the soul. Everything fits in extremely organically. Wachowski respects the legacy of The Matrix and isn’t about to spoil it by giving the viewer something different.
Resurrection is seen as an explanation and a story – what happened after Neo died. What is the state of the world between machines and humans. What happened to the freed, what happened to Zion, and so on. A complete closure of the gestalts. There are even references to the not infamous ‘Matrix in the Matrix’ scenario. Wachowski interprets all the theories in his own way and gives people the answer to what came after.
This is no longer a film about fighting the system, the desire to get out and be free. Not a critique of capitalism and totalitarian systems of power.
The system has won. All that was left was fatigue and a desire to simply live. To find our own way out of the hell of diktat. To leave everyone who is content to lie and live in a cage. To leave and build their own world.
But was the struggle pointless in such a case? No. The war is over. And peace exists, the truth in a complicated compromise.
Is Neo the chosen one now? More likely no than yes. He has fulfilled his mission and just wants to live.
From all of this, the new Matrix comes across as Wachowski’s desire to give people answers and close all the lines definitively by putting a fat end to it, but burning through in his trademark style by telling what our world has become many years later.
The matrix has been and always will be. Man needs the illusion of freedom to be happy. And for this life, he needs someone who will tell him the rules of this life. So everyone continues to sleep and accept the rules of the game.
And now for the cons.
This time, everything in the matrix is devoid of life and looks empty. It’s as if the world in front of us is plastic. Gone is the feeling of fullness and liveliness that was in the previous trilogy. Everything is quiet and calm. It’s as if everyone is extinct.
The humor is not always there, spoiling the moment and the immersion in the story.
Also, the appearance of one Frenchman is unnecessary from the word go. Take him away and nothing changes. I can’t understand why there was a need for all these gestures.
And the final scene is a wild OP. Apparently about what will happen to the Matrix if WB decide to make a new trilogy. But apparently there’s no Wachowski, because she’s put an end to the story. Well and I hope it’s the last movie, because there’s just nothing to tell next.
