  • Too harsh (Score:3, Insightful)

    I agree that the pacing needed work. Too much reliance on fight scenes, which is what I was afraid of. I don't worry about picking plot details apart - if you really wanted to, you could do that to the first movie, too.

    On a completely different tangent, one theory one of my co-workers had is that the French guy (forgot his name) is actually a former "the one", now digitized. It would make some of what his jealous girlfriend says later on a bit more meaningful.

    • The French guy's name is the Merovingian. It's the name of the oldest French dynasty. He's IMO far the best character in the film. The whole theater was laughing. (Lambert Wilson is a very well-known French actor.) And the erotic scene with the chocolate cake was pretty amusing.

      Too much reliance on fight scenes -- the multi-Smith fight costed a load of dollars, they were afraid to cut it down. And it's great, I suppose, for teenagers. But trimmed to 45 seconds, it would have been enough.

      The kid that follows Neo everywhere in Zion apparently comes from one of the Animatrices. A spurious character in my opinion.

      The non-Merovingian scene I enjoyed the most : when Neo tells to Morpheus that the Oracle is evil and that they've been completely screwed up. Morpheus was beginning to be annoying with his faith and his prophecies.
