Good movie, better than the average hollywoodian stuff. Too much action scenes : boring. Different from the first Matrix : the W brothers explored a different vein, rather than repeating the previous success -- good point for them, even if this seems to have disappointed lots of critics and fans. Smart ending -- perhaps too smart. Much more symbols in this one : they've used more various mythologies. I'll wait for the third opus to decide whether this forest of symbols works for me. And the Merovingian just kicks ass, putain de bordel de merde !
