The Matrix Resurrections’ meta streak sets it apart from the Jurassic Worlds of the world
Return to a world of two realities: one, everyday life; the other, what lies behind it. To find out if his reality is a construct, to truly know himself, Mr. Anderson will have to choose to follow the white rabbit once more.
The Matrix Resurrections is a reboot that doesn’t scarp the hardware. An actual reboot, in some ways.
The word “reboot” first has its origins in the “pull oneself up by one’s bootstraps.” Before it meant individualism, the phrase was supposed to reference an impossible task. Early computers, room-sized devices operated by endless punch cards, felt like an impossible task to those operating them, so starting one became “booting.” Rebooting meant that the impossible task had to start all over again, just like bringing back The Matrix in 2021.
In the hands of Lana Wachowski, The Matrix Resurrections is a movie about other movies.
On the surface, this makes sense. It’s a sequel, but Resurrections is not about The Matrix in the same way Revolutions is about Reloaded. It pays lip service to the plots of those movies, but isn’t invested in continuing their story. Rather, it mostly wants to comment on how The Matrix changed the world, and how the world changed The Matrix.
For some, this is a tedious exercise. Amelia Emberwing at IGN wrote in her dissent of the movie that “what’s meant to be self awareness becomes this kind of metaphorical Kool-Aid Man. Enjoying your scene? Let me burst through the wall and let you know that I’m not like other sequels; I’m a cool sequel.” Sonny Bunch at The Bulwark says “the meta discussion here about corporations and sequels and franchises is a desperate attempt to cover up the fact that Resurrections is precisely that, a piece of corporate business.”
The Matrix Resurrections Should Never Have Been Made
The Matrix Resurrections has turned out to be an absolute flop in theatres, and its easy to see why.
This film was a disaster from start to finish. Join me as I review it.
The Matrix Resurrections is a full-frontal attack on The Matrix
Lana Wachowski understands film aesthetics better than anyone.
With the relentlessness of a great white shark, she vigorously hunts for a new aesthetic (the way form and color and sound and design create an emotional experience) for every new project. Think of all the elements you associate with The Matrix ‘99:
The perfect green tone of the matrix
The destabilized relationship of space and time visualized with bullet time
The total lack of establishing shots and the claustrophobia of the unnamed city
- The feeling of cool frozen in amber 1999
- The perfect structured fight sequences designed by Yuen Woo-ping
- The entire, perfect tone
These elements (and more) combine to make the very clear look and feel that we all recognize as “The Matrix franchise.”
The Matrix Resurrections doesn’t have any of them.
To find out if his reality is a physical or mental construct, Mr. Anderson, aka Neo, will have to choose to follow the white rabbit once more. If he’s learned anything, it’s that choice, while an illusion, is still the only way out of — or into — the Matrix. Neo already knows what he has to do, but what he doesn’t yet know is that the Matrix is stronger, more secure and far more dangerous than ever before.
The Matrix Resurrections premieres on HBO Max on December 22nd, alongside the movie’s theatrical release. According to HBO Max, you’ll have 31 days to watch the new Matrix movie on the streaming platform for free with an HBO Max subscription.
Laurence Fishburne : The Matrix
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II : The Matrix Resurrections
Morpheus (/ˈmɔːrfiəs/) is a fictional character in The Matrix franchise. He is portrayed by Laurence Fishburne in the first three films, and in the video game The Matrix: Path of Neo, where his original actor was the only one to reprise his character’s voice.
Carrie-Anne Moss : The Matrix Resurrections
Sci-fi Legend: Carrie-Anne Moss, who plays Trinity in the “Matrix” film series, shared what it was like to return to the character in her 50s.
Trinity and Neo fly to the machine city to try and stop the war, but Trinity is killed. Neo sacrifices himself to delete Agent Smith, and the machines leave Zion as the Matrix is rebooted to its previous version. The movie ends with the Oracle predicting they haven’t seen the last of Neo.
The film’s press release states that The Matrix Resurrections is a direct sequel to the story established in the first film.
Morpheus represents the best kind of leader and teacher: He teaches Neo what he knows and guides him to the right path, then steps aside and lets Neo proceed on his own. Morpheus does not seek glory, and his selflessness makes him heroic in his own way.
The Animatrix confirms that only two people have ever achieved self-substantiation: an Olympic track athlete named Dan Davis and a teenager known as The Kid. The Animatrix segment “World Record” revealed Dan accidentally unplugged himself from The Matrix by pushing himself beyond his physical limitations during a race.
Hypnokinesis: As the god of dreams, Morpheus has divine authority and control over dreams. He can make people fall asleep and shape peoples’ dream. …
Shapeshifting: As a god, Morpheus has the ability take any human form.
Umbrakinesis: Since he is a underworld god, he can control/manipulate darkness.
The Matrix Resurrections
The Matrix Resurrections is a 2021 American science fiction action film produced, co-written, and directed by Lana Wachowski.
It is the sequel to The Matrix Revolutions (2003) and the fourth and final installment in The Matrix film franchise. Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Lambert Wilson, and Jada Pinkett Smith reprise their roles from the previous films, and they are joined by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
The film is set sixty years after the events of Revolutions and follows Neo, who lives a seemingly ordinary life as a video game developer troubled with distinguishing dreams from reality. A group of rebels, with the help of a programmed version of Morpheus, free Neo from an altered Matrix and fight a new enemy that holds Trinity captive.
Following the release of Revolutions, the Wachowskis denied the possibility of another Matrix film, though rumors emerged since then about a possible fourth Matrix film and the studio constantly expressed interest in reviving the franchise, hiring Zak Penn to write a new screenplay after the Wachowskis refused every offer to create more sequels. In late 2019, a fourth Matrix film was finally announced, with Lana Wachowski returning as director without her sister and Reeves and Moss reprising their roles. Filming started in February 2020 but was halted the next month by the COVID-19 pandemic. Wachowski toyed with the possibility of shelving the project and leaving the film unfinished, but the cast insisted that she finish it. Filming resumed in August 2020, concluding three months later.
The Matrix Resurrections premiered in Toronto on December 16, 2021, and was released by Warner Bros. Pictures on December 22, 2021, both theatrically and via the HBO Max streaming service. It has grossed over $68 million, and critical response to the film was mixed; the performances were praised, though the writing, action scenes, and visuals received some criticism.
The Matrix has a complicated legacy.
It’s probably the most influential American movie since Star Wars came out in 1977 (and it is now almost exactly as old as Star Wars was when The Matrix came out), and it’s by far the most popular piece of art created by trans people.
But its sequels were divisive, and its ideas about questioning reality have influenced political reactionaries in dangerous ways. Now, with a fourth film in the series coming out on December 22, it’s time to go back … back to the Matrix, across five eras of the franchise’s history.
