The Matrix Resurrections: Take the blue pill, please!

by Out and About Mag.

Cue Ain Dubai to announce the premiere of The Matrix Resurrections at Roxy Cinemas. Frankly, that was the best thing about the movie!

The Matrix Resurrections is a weird film — but one that’s often more concerned with being self-aware than being good or enjoyable. Directed by Lana Wachowski from a script she co-wrote with David Mitchell and Aleksandar Hemon, The Matrix Resurrections is a love story, within an action movie, within a meta exploration of our obsession with nostalgia.

The Matrix Resurrections

In the new Matrix, Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, is a video game developer living an ordinary life in San Francisco under the name Thomas Anderson. He works as the world’s most celebrated video game designer along with his business partner (Jonathan Groff). However, Thomas suffers from delusions that make it difficult to separate reality from fiction. His therapist, played by Neil Patrick Harris, prescribes him blue pills to help contain the illusions.

In the movie, Neo finds himself in a new world and on a mission to save his true love Trinity, played by Carrie Ann-Moss. He is supported by a new group of rebels, led by punk ship commander Bugs, played by Jessica Henwick and an alternate version of his mentor, Morpheus, played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. 

The Matrix Resurrections

The Matrix Resurrections is made up primarily of good ideas. The problem is, it’s just not a good movie! It is a bunch of individually neatly stacked ideas in a trench coat like a group of kids trying to buy tickets to an R-rated movie.

The Matrix Resurrections is the kind of film that will go down in history for being so laughably bad. Truthfully, we can’t even say it’s unenjoyable because we spent so much of its overly long runtime giggling over how jaw-droppingly misguided and confusing the majority of it is. 

It might be a good one if you are a fan of The Matrix, but even fans were saying no after the premiere. 


We give this one a 2/5
