And if you know a thing or two about the original trilogy — specifically that Neo and Trinity died at the end of them — then you’re probably VERY curious to see how they’re resurrected and what kinda wild shit they get up to in the new movie.

So, to get you pumped, here’s what people who’ve already seen it (i.e. film critics) are saying about it (SPOILER FREE!):


THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS is a total blast. Weird, romantic, *extremely.* meta, and consistently funny. I kind of loved it. (Also, everyone in this movie is ridiculously hot.) #TheMatrixResurrections

THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS felt like Lana having a fast, loose, fun time remixing the existing material, and even though it’s about the love story of Neo/Trinity, it’s an unabashedly queer blockbuster.

THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS is the most Gen X love story ever told. I love that I felt Lana Wachowski’s journey and heart throughout- and was every bit as meta as a Matrix movie could get. Jonathan Groff is a DELIGHT. It’s fun, heady, enjoyable, and just plain great.

The Matrix Resurrections, despite (and because of) its infinite goofiness, is the boldest & most vividly personal Hollywood sequel since The Last Jedi. a silly/sincere galaxy brain take on reboot culture that makes peace with how modern blockbusters are now only about themselves.

There was a point in the middle of The Matrix Resurrections where I briefly thought it was the best movie ever made, and, like, I haven’t convinced myself it’s NOT?

I lovvvvvvved it. A lotta people are gonna haaaaaaaate. My favorite kind of movie!!

THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS is a grandiose palate cleanser for the era of clinical nostalgia bait and sexless tentpoles: a totally earnest sci-fi romance with some of the most exuberant set pieces this side of Fury Road, empathetic and incisive in equal measure. Astonishing stuff.

THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS is *perfect,* no notes; every bit as polarizing and obtuse as the other sequels and I’m elated it exists. Totally earnest Wachowski sci-fi silliness and jaw-dropping action. I will watch it 600 times. This is a sequel to the sequels. #Matrix

I can’t stop thinking about The Matrix Resurrections.

It brilliantly reinvents the franchise while increasing the importance of the first 3 films all while being touching, exciting and gorgeous. It’s very trippy and complex, but I loved it. Can’t wait to see it again and again.

#TheMatrixResurrections is a terrific, awe-inducing, meta mind-bender completely in line with the franchise’s legacy. Finds an innovative, high-concept way to frame the new story. Keanu Reeves & Carrie-Anne Moss’ chemistry burns. Jessica Henwick is a revelation! @TheMatrixMovie

Without a doubt, @TheMatrixMovie is my fave movie of 2021. It’s easily the best film since the original, Keanu & Carrie-Anne are absolutely stellar, the action kicks all kinds of ass & the story blew my mind. It exceeded every single expectation I had. #TheMatrixResurrections

#TheMatrixResurrections is an absolute SLAM DUNK! A bold, deeply personal, vibrant, & BITING anti legacy sequel that challenges the complacency of our nostalgia-obsessed world & how the system has evolved to exploit that. THIS is how you “resurrect” a franchise!

SEEN! #TheMatrixResurrections is a presentation, or re-presentation, of 2 facts—that the Wachowskis’ creativity is of the boundless kind & that the series is one of the most romantic works out there. Action is creative, but inferior to Yuen Woo-ping’s; effects, too #FilmTwitter

#TheMatrixResurrections is two things: a giant middle finger to the state of IP-driven blockbusters and the proper MATRIX 4 we deserve. Dense, visually one-of-a-kind, heartfelt, going all in on the boldness of the sequels. No one does it like Lana Wachowski.
