Matrix: Revolutions

Sunday, we went to see Matrix: Revolutions. I went in expecting something like a recent Star Wars movie: lots of eye candy, lots of action. You don't watch movies like that for the characterisation, the dialogues and the acting. You don't even watch it for the plot, because the plot will have holes in it that are large enough to drive a truck through.

And I actually liked Matrix: Reloaded. It introduced some nifty concepts, even though it ripped more holes into the plot. I had hoped that Revolutions would clear these up and come with a satisfactory conclusion.

Boy, was I dissapointed.

God, I feel cheated. I want those two hours of my life back.

OK, so here's the finished product.

You will notice I didn't take xaviar_nl's suggestion about the structure of the story. I wanted Lord Peter to get nervous and uncertain of himself. Then he remembers what these people did to his Master, which strengthens his resolve to succeed where his Master had failed. With that renewed determination, he continues on.
(We had to make sure the flashback somehow changed the character, and I think this is the best way to do it.)

As always, comments are welcome.
