Fun with Franchises: The Matrix Revolutions (2003), Part V — “The Motherfucker Who Found Jesus”

We continue with another entry in our Fun with Franchises series. This week’s film is The Matrix Revolutions.

Fun with Franchises is a series born out of my friend Colin and I realizing how much fun it was for the two of us to watch the same movie separately and then share our reactions. We started by watching all of the James Bond movies, for the purposes of ranking them for the blog. I brought him in because he was much more of a Bond expert than I was at the time, and I felt his perspective would liven things up. He would be the color commentator to my play-by-play man.

We soon discovered that, by watching the movies separately and then putting everything we said together in the same place, hilarity ensued. We each brought in our own observations, not knowing what the other would say, and then reacted to what the other said. And we loved every minute of it.

We had so much fun, we figured we had to do it again. So we graduated from a single franchise, to all franchises. If you’re gonna have fun with franchises, it wouldn’t be right if you didn’t franchise it. Season 1 included the Harry Potter movies, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Twilight (which neither of us had seen before we watched them for the articles) and Pirates of the Caribbean. All of those articles can be read on the Fun with Franchises page.

Also, just so we’re clear, this is all for parody. We’re just messing with them because we love them. (Well… Twilight…) We’re watching movies we enjoy and are simply having some fun with them.

Right now, we’re doing the Matrix franchise, and today is the fifth and final part of The Matrix Revolutions.

We begin Part V with the only thing in the film we want to see.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1279

This is what the Matrix looks like now.

I guess because it’s becoming imbalanced.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1280

There’s your feet payoff shot.

Let’s set the tone for this appropriately:

The Matrix Revolutions - 1281

They’re just chilling here, waiting for him. Because somehow he knew he’d come back.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1282

Colin:

Once again, this is a problem Neo caused.

Pretty great how Jesus gets all the credit for solving problems he created.

P.S. I Hate That He’s Jesus.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1283

This is fantastic. I also respect Smith for allowing this to be a one on one fight.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1284

This is like Triumph of the Will, when they cut up into the window, and there’s that one Nazi kitten inside.

I guess people really did live here.

Colin:

I have to say, I was uncomfortable putting that movie on, for obvious reasons. And then as I was watching it, it was kinda like…wow. They really knew how to play to a fucking crowd here.

What he’s saying is that Triumph of the Will is really no different than Heaven Is For Real. Except that there, the storytelling is more honest.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1285

Colin:

Apparently his Matrix eyes work, but he still wears sunglasses at night, in the rain.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1286

How did he know where to go? How did he know where the real Smith was gonna be?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1287

Why was he standing in line with the rest of them? Why wasn’t he waiting in the middle of the street?

What was he doing the rest of this time when he was waiting?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1288

What if he just started breakdancing?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1289

The Matrix Revolutions - 1290

“Mr. Anderson, welcome back. We’ve missed you.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1291

“You like what I’ve done with the place?”

First movie shots.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1292

“It ends tonight.”

Ominous thunderclap.

But do you like what he did with the place?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1293

“I know it does. I’ve seen it. That’s why the rest of me is just going to enjoy the show. Because we already know that I’m the one that beats you.”

Can all the Smiths assimilate? Otherwise, he was really fucking busy in here, wasn’t he?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1294

I remember this fight. This is where Smith steps on the Oracle’s head and Neo goes Super Saiyan 2.

Colin:

I feel like this isn’t the proper forum to do so, but someone should really address the…ethnic?…nature of Semi-Perfect Cell’s lips. Along with Mr. Popo, I think it’s safe to say that anime takes liberties.

Civil liberties?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1295

The Matrix Revolutions - 1296

Really like this shot.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1297

The Matrix Revolutions - 1298

How awesome is it that they framed them on the sides of the frame as they run rather than in the center? They’re capable of such great filmmaking, and yet such awful storytelling at the same time.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1299

What happened to all the cars?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1300

The Matrix Revolutions - 1301

The Matrix Revolutions - 1302

Just have the entire fight happen from this angle.

Colin:

REALLY not sure I get what Neo thinks he’s doing fighting him. If you’re gonna fight him, there are several billion of him to fight. If you’re NOT going to fight him, maybe skip the fighting thing and just do whatever else it is you plan on doing.

The whole thing was a suicide mission anyway. So I guess he figured he’d go out doing what he loved — helping his landlady carry out her garbage.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1303

The Matrix Revolutions - 1304

The Matrix Revolutions - 1305

The Matrix Revolutions - 1306

The Matrix Revolutions - 1307

The Matrix Revolutions - 1308

NICE punch!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1309

I like the water flying as he misses.

Rain helps things.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1310

The Matrix Revolutions - 1311

The Matrix Revolutions - 1312

Oh, this is terrific. This angle, this amount of rain. Just let them fight.

Colin:

I think I still prefer the fight in Hero, where the old blind man is playing the zither or whatever the whole time. You wanna fight in the rain? Zither, baby.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1313

The Matrix Revolutions - 1314

Or… do that.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1315

The Matrix Revolutions - 1316

Maybe he’ll end up beheaded like Carlisle.

Remember that movie?

Colin:

I have no idea of what you’re talking about. 

I try to block it out too.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1317

The Matrix Revolutions - 1318

Somebody had to have gotten sick during the filming of this sequence.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1319

The Matrix Revolutions - 1320

Neo wins.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1321

Colin:

The silliness of this is not lost on me. That’s Hugo Weaving on a bed made of asphalt.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1322

The Matrix Revolutions - 1323

They can both fly?

Also, this would look ridiculous without the rain.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1324

Kinda like this. What is that?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1325

Colin:

Actually, now the spirit bomb thing doesn’t seem so ridiculous.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1326

Whoa. The street looks like reflections from a fish tank. That’s cool.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1327

Which people do you think those are?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1328

And now you’re getting rained on again.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1329

And now they’re falling while fighting. Unique.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1330

This face.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1331

The Matrix Revolutions - 1332

Matrix fighting in a nutshell:

Punch punch punch, kick kick kick.

Someone jumps in the air in slow motion and kicks another person.

Person is thrown through a wall.

Other person walks toward them, only their feet in the frame.

Other person motions for them to “bring it on.”

Hugo Weaving is awesome.

Colin:

That’s kind of the problem with this fight. It’s too much FIGHTING and not enough of the awesome moments we enjoy with Hugo Weaving making faces.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1333

This is the “thrown through a wall” part.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1334

I’ve never seen that much brick in this entire franchise.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1335

Man, you fly through walls a lot, though.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1336

That’s not brick.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1337

Uncool Aid.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1338

Colin:

Look at me, Mr. I Have Eyes that Work.

I’m Neo, and here’s my mad face!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1339

They should just randomly cut to the window squeegee guy during this fight. The one guy Smith hasn’t assimilated yet.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1340

This is cool, though. He’s flying through a wall vagina.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1341

The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1 - 872

The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1 - 873

This will never not be funny to me.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1342

But actually, that’s what this is. I love it. This would be on my shots list if it wasn’t so fake.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1343

The dojo?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1344

The Matrix Revolutions - 1345

How do you fall for that move?

That’s how the Barbary wars ended.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1346

This kind of reminds me of that place in Moonraker where Bond fought the shifty Chinaman after Jaws came and tried to rape the other chick in the clown costume.

Colin:

The glass factory? Also, that sentence should never have been uttered…should never have been needed to be uttered.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1347

They’re just flying around this room.

Colin:

Okay, this is just some goofy shit now. This is beyond the goofiness of Dragonball Z.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1348

Why can they both fly?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1349

When was Smith able to fly?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1350

Is that you realizing he can fly?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1351

The Matrix Revolutions - 1352

That’s what people used to do in the pool when they couldn’t get started on their own.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1353

You are not good for walls.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1354

The Matrix Revolutions - 1355

This also would be on the shots list if it weren’t so fake looking.

Also pretty sure this is where Smooth Criminal happened.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1356

YOU JUST FLEW INTO ONE ANOTHER?!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1357

That’s a beam. That should cause the ceiling to come down.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1358

The Matrix Revolutions - 1359

Again?!

Colin:

That really looks painted on. 

The Matrix Revolutions - 1360

Look familiar?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1361

Nice shot.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1362

“Can you feel it, Mr. Anderson?”

Coming in the air tonight?

“Closing in on you? Oh, I can.”

Love that? Can you feel it? Oh, I can.

“I really should thank you for it, after all. It was your life that taught me the purpose of all life. The purpose of life is to end.”

This is every Marvel villain.

ONE OF WHOM IS HUGO WEAVING.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1363

He hasn’t said a word since he got here.

Well, I guess he said, “It ends tonight.” But nothing else.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1364

The Matrix Revolutions - 1365

The Matrix Revolutions - 1366

Who needs words when you can do that, apparently.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1367

Really?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1368

He goes through like three emotions here.

Colin:

And yet…Hugo Weaving is the most enjoyable orgy of emotions all at once. Just before they start fighting again, he does like 5 different faces in the span of three seconds, and it actually works. The man is a fucking virtuoso.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1369

The Matrix Revolutions - 1370

Sometimes they should just keep the camera where it is. This is a great shot.

And a sewing machine in the corner.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1371

The Matrix Revolutions - 1372

Skyfall!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1373

The Matrix Revolutions - 1374

The Matrix Revolutions - 1375

The Matrix Revolutions - 1376

Seriously, this is great. Why not more of this?

The Wachowskis developed this thing where they do really cool shit but don’t stick with it because they constantly want more. And then they go back to repeating shit because they think that’s what people want. It’s a real problem. If this was a good three minutes of the scene, just them fighting like this, it would have been amazing. But instead they want onto more bullshit.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1377

The Matrix Revolutions - 1378

The Matrix Revolutions - 1379

Didn’t fall for it this time.

That’s good.

Adaptation, improvisation.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1380

Tooth!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1381

The Matrix Revolutions - 1382

The Matrix Revolutions - 1383

Glasses.

Three movies now.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1384

I’d be pissed that I had to buy more glasses too.

Colin:

I’m always confused about programs wearing clothing. Is that not part of their code?

Maybe that’s what “upgrades meant.”

“Ugh, his code is so last year!”

Or maybe…

“Oh. My. God. Becky, look at her code!”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1385

The Matrix Revolutions - 1386

Nice. I love when people get thrown through windows.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1387

The Matrix Revolutions - 1388

Great shot.

Colin:

Yeah, none of this means anything. How are there still 20 minutes left of this movie? Is there gonna be an epilogue at Platform 9 3/4?

Nope, just Niobe hopping up on Morpheus’ platform 9 3/4.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1389

The Matrix Revolutions - 1390

Air brake.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1391

This is kinda cool too.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1392

He still has only spoken one line.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1393

His faces make this worthwhile.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1394

I don’t care about this. The operatic music and them flying into each other is meaningless to me. I need hand to hand combat that tells a story.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1395

The Matrix Revolutions - 1396

The Matrix Revolutions - 1397

This is dumb.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1398

The Matrix Revolutions - 1399

This is meaningless. They can fly. When they can’t fly, that’s when this is exciting.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1400

You think any of the Smiths are taking bets on this?

Colin:

If it showed them passing money around, I would applaud.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1401

Remember how the machines can change things?

Why not change what’s going on?

Why haven’t they changed anything since the first movie?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1402

The Matrix Revolutions - 1403

Yeah, okay.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1404

Wow, they actually got hit by that.

Slightly better.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1405

The Matrix Revolutions - 1406

This is basically an offensive lineman battle. What the fuck?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1407

The Matrix Revolutions - 1408

The Matrix Revolutions - 1409

Why do we need this? I know, it’s cool. Lightning is always cool. But why do we need this? FIGHT!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1410

The Matrix Revolutions - 1411

The Matrix Revolutions - 1412

The Matrix Revolutions - 1413

The GoPro shot.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1414

The Matrix Revolutions - 1415

Why is this interesting? Wouldn’t you rather them just fighting like they used to?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1416

The Matrix Revolutions - 1417

Colin:

That was an Akira boom.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1418

The Matrix Revolutions - 1419

The Matrix Revolutions - 1420

Wide shots during fighting can only go so wide before we’re not seeing anything of value.

Colin:

Dragonball Z at least made it semi-interesting when there would be bangs all over the place. Or a punch so the character goes flying out of sight and then you see a building collapsing like 10 miles away.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1421

The Matrix Revolutions - 1422

The Matrix Revolutions - 1423

YES!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1424

The Matrix Revolutions - 1425

Oh good. This again.

For the fourth time during this fight.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1426

The Matrix Revolutions - 1427

The Matrix Revolutions - 1428

The Matrix Revolutions - 1429

The Matrix Revolutions - 1430

That’s not suggestive.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1431

The Matrix Revolutions - 1432

The Matrix Revolutions - 1433

The Matrix Revolutions - 1434

Is this supposed to be New York? That’s a very New York building.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1435

The Matrix Revolutions - 1436

The Matrix Revolutions - 1437

Yeah, this is dumb.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1438

The Matrix Revolutions - 1439

I guess that means the fight is over.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1440

The Matrix Revolutions - 1441

The Matrix Revolutions - 1442

We’ve all been there.

Colin:

He was bleeding from the last punch. How is he intact? At this point, it’s just whatever the fuck we wanted it to be, huh?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1443

The Matrix Revolutions - 1444

The Matrix Revolutions - 1445

This is a great shot.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1446

The Matrix Revolutions - 1447

“Why, Mr. Anderson? Why? Why? Why do you do it? Why? Why get up? Why keep fighting?”

Colin:

I was going to ask why this movie couldn’t have been better. 

The Matrix Revolutions - 1448

“You believe you’re fighting for something? For more than your survival? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know?”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1449

Love that they got the reaction shot in there.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1450

“Is it freedom, or truth, perhaps peace. Could it be for love?”

Colin:

He lists off the random words people get caught up on.

Maybe he assimilated the Indian girl’s father, too.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1451

“Illusions, Mr. Anderson, vagaries of perception.”

Colin:

Vagaries of perception. Truth. I would fight for Hugo Weaving.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1452

“Temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that it without meaning or purpose! And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself. Although, only a human mind can invent something as insipid as love.”

I have nothing to say. Just let him monologue some more.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1453

“You must be able to see it, Mr. Anderson. You must know it by now. You can’t win, it’s pointless to keep fighting.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1454

“Why, Mr. Anderson? Why do you persist?”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1455

“Because I choose to.”

Colin:

Because you choose to? The WHOLE thing is that? We’ve been talking about choice for the WHOLE GODDAMN time.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1456

This is a great face. “Because you choose to?” I’d want to punch him too.

Colin:

This man salvages the movie. I don’t care about any of the rest of it. Just give me clips of Weaving and cut the rest of the movie and I’ll go with it.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1457

The Matrix Revolutions - 1458

The Matrix Revolutions - 1459

That was cool. Not sure why he had so much water in his mouth, though.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1460

The Matrix Revolutions - 1461

Too much slow motion. Just fight.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1462

The Matrix Revolutions - 1463

Doesn’t get more CGI than this.

Oh my god.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1464

The Matrix Revolutions - 1465

Look how fake this looks.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1466

The Matrix Revolutions - 1467

Great shot, conceptually. But holy shit, don’t slow it down to show us how fake it is.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1468

The Matrix Revolutions - 1469

The Matrix Revolutions - 1470

The Matrix Revolutions - 1471

He looks like Ethan Suplee.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1472

The Matrix Revolutions - 1473

So fake, yet kinda funny.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1474

The Matrix Revolutions - 1475

The Matrix Revolutions - 1476

The Matrix Revolutions - 1477

Love that sped up punch.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1478

The Matrix Revolutions - 1479

You look like you have a giant alien head above this.

And he’s got that Vincent D’Onofrio face going on. After he gets taken over by the alien and is asking for sugar water.

Colin:

I think it was in the second movie that he had the line, “More. More. More.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1480

The Matrix Revolutions - 1481

The Matrix Revolutions - 1482

Punch that motherfucker through the rocks.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1483

The Matrix Revolutions - 1484

The Matrix Revolutions - 1485

That’s right, bitches.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1486

And they’re just standing there. This really is a fair fight.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1487

Now what?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1488

He’s not dead.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1489

The Matrix Revolutions - 1490

BAM!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1491

“This is my world. My world!”

Colin:

But..what are you going to do now? They’re just lining the streets. It’s not like they have something better to do.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1492

He looks so resigned.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1493

The Matrix Revolutions - 1494

The Matrix Revolutions - 1495

All right, just stand there and let him tackle you.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1496

The Matrix Revolutions - 1497

Shiho just lost his shit.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1498

The Matrix Revolutions - 1499

The Matrix Revolutions - 1500

The Matrix Revolutions - 1501

The Matrix Revolutions - 1502

He’s really hulking out right now.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1503

The Matrix Revolutions - 1504

What’s with all the body shots? You were clearly pulling back to hit him in the face.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1505

The Matrix Revolutions - 1506

“Wait. I’ve seen this. This is it, this is the end.”

Colin:

How can you not enjoy him going through the play-by-play he saw with The Oracle’s powers?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1507

The Matrix Revolutions - 1508

“You were laying right there, just like that, and I – I – I stand here. Right here.”

Ever given any thought to why you’ve seen this?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1509

Even when unconscious, he gets a reaction shot.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1510

“I’m supposed to say something. I say, ‘Everything that has a beginning has an end, Neo.’”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1511

And allegedly now he understand what he has to do?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1512

The Matrix Revolutions - 1513

“What? What’d I just say? No, no, this isn’t right, this can’t be right.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1514

The Matrix Revolutions - 1515

The Matrix Revolutions - 1516

“Get away from me.”

This is GREAT. He’s like, “Yes, I’ve won. I’ve seen it. Wait, why am I doing it this way?” And then Neo gets up. This is freaky as shit. I love how afraid he is right now.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1517

“What are you afraid of?”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1518

“It’s a trick.”

“You were right, Smith. You were always right. It was inevitable.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1519

Probably not the best course of action.

Maybe you should leave him alive and see what happens.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1520

The Matrix Revolutions - 1521

The Matrix Revolutions - 1522

The Matrix Revolutions - 1523

You really dug your arm deep into his chest there.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1524

The Matrix Revolutions - 1525

The Matrix Revolutions - 1526

The Matrix Revolutions - 1527

The Matrix Revolutions - 1528

If he’s letting you do it, you should probably be questioning that.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1529

The Matrix Revolutions - 1530

“Is it over?”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1531

Come on, buddy.

Also, clearly not Neo. He’s smiling.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1532

You guys remember cumming for the first time.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1533

The Matrix Revolutions - 1534

The Matrix Revolutions - 1535

So did that cause a power surge or something?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1536

The Matrix Revolutions - 1537

The Matrix Revolutions - 1538

The Matrix Revolutions - 1539

The Matrix Revolutions - 1540

Subtle, guys. Real subtle.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1541

Colin:

Was this not from Constantine? It’s pretty bad when the imagery here is stronger than the one that’s actually about angels and demons.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1542

The Matrix Revolutions - 1543

The Matrix Revolutions - 1544

The Matrix Revolutions - 1545

The Matrix Revolutions - 1546

The Matrix Revolutions - 1547

“No, no, no, no, no. No, it’s not fair.”

Colin:

Shouldn’t Smith have something to say about fairness and why it’s bullshit?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1548

The Matrix Revolutions - 1549

That’s the second time this is happening to him.

Colin:

So now he does the same shit. He goes in and blows up Smith from the inside. That was kinda boring.

I told you. They took all the shit from the previous movies and filled in all the rest of the stuff with that. Which is most of the movie.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1550

Look at the face he’s making!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1551

The Matrix Revolutions - 1552

You ever puke light?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1553

The Matrix Revolutions - 1554

The Matrix Revolutions - 1555

The Matrix Revolutions - 1556

The Matrix Revolutions - 1557

The Matrix Revolutions - 1558

The Matrix Revolutions - 1559

The Matrix Revolutions - 1560

The Matrix Revolutions - 1561

The Matrix Revolutions - 1562

The Matrix Revolutions - 1563

The Matrix Revolutions - 1564

The Matrix Revolutions - 1565

The Matrix Revolutions - 1566

The Matrix Revolutions - 1567

The Matrix Revolutions - 1568

The Matrix Revolutions - 1569

The Matrix Revolutions - 1570

The Matrix Revolutions - 1571

Just like Sauron.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1572

The Matrix Revolutions - 1573

The Matrix Revolutions - 1574

The Matrix Revolutions - 1575

Also, everyone in the Matrix is now dead, right?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1576

The Matrix Revolutions - 1577

The Matrix Revolutions - 1578

Jesus went out the same way.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1579

The Matrix Revolutions - 1580

“It is done.”

It said, to no one in particular.

Colin:

Did he die from the light puking?

He’s gonna pop!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1581

You left her alive?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1582

Did you really make Mary Alice lay in the mud like that?

Also, so I guess all the people just get reset? How does that work?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1583

The Matrix Revolutions - 1584

So… are they just gonna leave him there, or…?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1585

The Matrix Revolutions - 1586

Colin:

Annnnnd, the war is over.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1587

The Matrix Revolutions - 1588

“It doesn’t make sense.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1589

The Matrix Revolutions - 1590

“He did it.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1591

“He saved us.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1592

“What is it? What happened?”

“Sir, he did it, sir. Neo, he did it!”

“Did what?”

“He ended the war. The machines, they’re gone. The war is over, sir. The war is over!”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1593

“Zion, it’s over!”

Colin:

I hate this character. I’m running out of opportunities to say so.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1594

“The war is over! The war is over!”

Right, though?

Also, good moment for him to get impaled by a rogue sentinel.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1595

Well goddamn, Link.

Colin:

That’s the difference between us and the robots. We appreciate titties.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1596

Gonna be a hell of a dance party tonight.

Colin:

Are we gonna have 20 more minutes of people screaming that the war is over?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1597

The Matrix Revolutions - 1598

Now what do they do?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1599

And what do they do?

Your entire purpose is killing people, and now you’re just… squid.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1600

“I imagined this moment for so long. Is this real?”

Do you not care that your friend is dead?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1601

This motherfucker is set up for life now. He’s the motherfucker who found Jesus.

Colin:

Morpheus gonna get some PUSSAY TONIGHT

(Good title, by the way. The Motherfucker Who Found Jesus. Starring Samuel L. Jackson.)

The Matrix Revolutions - 1602

So did she and Lock break up? Because when did that happen?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1603

Are we just supposed to buy that they’re together now because that’s how movies work.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1604

“Neo, wherever you are… thank you.”

Sure, he can hear that. So just whisper all creepy like that into his chest.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1605

REAL FUCKING SUBTLE.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1606

Is it gonna throw his body off the side to keep shit clean? Because I’d be down for that.

That sounds exactly like the thinking of a machine to me.

Colin:

No. They have to liquefy it and feed it to the people he saved. You know. Communion. 

The Matrix Revolutions - 1607

What about Trinity? Does she not get special treatment?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1608

Bane’s body is here too.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1609

Is he off to the undying lands or something? Or are they actually about to throw him in an incinerator with the rest of the rejects?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1610

Why do you keep cutting to him? He’s dead. Stop that.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1611

The Matrix Revolutions - 1612

Did he get turned into power?

I’m so confused about all of this.

Are there gonna be no more anomalies?

If he was born inside the Matrix, does he go back inside?

DOES HE BECOME NOODLES???

Colin:

If James Woods had been in this movie somehow, I’d have enjoyed that.

Matrix Walter Brennan.

“You think that’s air you’re breathin’ now? He heh!”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1613

This chick is just sleeping on the sidewalk.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1614

Glitch!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1615

Colin:

That shit looks like Minecraft. Which I still don’t understand.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1616

The Matrix Revolutions - 1617

The Matrix Revolutions - 1618

“Good morning.”

Really? Not even gonna question why you woke up on a street corner? Because you’re like 8. That’s weird. At 23, not so weird.

Colin:

“Good morning, kitty. I had a dream I was Hugo Weaving.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1619

Love them some footsteps.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1620

This is exactly like that moment in Naked Gun where he’s randomly in the middle of the woods.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1621

Architect.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1622

Oracle.

Sure, all the people are dead. It’s just programs now.

Colin:

Why does shit have to be so poorly lit for this ENTIRE movie?

They lit it on a computer, too!

The Matrix Revolutions - 1623

Did they fuck? Do you think they fucked?

“Well, now, ain’t this a surprise?”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1624

“You played a very dangerous game.”

Perhaps… the most dangerous game.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1625

“Change always is.”

By the way, this is exactly how Do the Right Thing ended too.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1626

“Just how long do you think this peace is going to last?”

I don’t know. Maybe if you gave us the fucking terms of the peace, we could guesstimate.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1627

“As long as it can.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1628

The Matrix Revolutions - 1629

Great reaction. Snort and then turn around.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1630

“What about the others?”

“What others?”

“The ones that want out.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1631

“Obviously they will be freed.”

Obviously.

Try to be a little more condescending.

No, seriously, try. Because I enjoy seeing you be an elitist program. It amuses me.

Colin:

So how does this end? Zion is saved and the humans stay in the Matrix? Except for the ones who want out? Which is less than 1 percent, according to The Architect?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1632

“I have your word?”

What about his sword? And his axe?

The Matrix Revolutions - 1633

“What do you think I am, human?”

Weird how they’re just alive like that. I mean, they’re programs, sure. But still.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1634

The Matrix Revolutions - 1635

The Matrix Revolutions - 1636

The Matrix Revolutions - 1637

Also weird how she just has this child for like, no reason.

And how all of these programs are randomly alive. What, were they defragmented or something? Did they remove all the Smith bugs? Just a reset? How did that work? None of this is ever explained. We just get a happy ending and have no idea how it happened.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1638

Also, piece of trivia. Apparently that bench is a memorium bench of Thomas Anderson. Of course, we never see this up close and I only read about it in the trivia, but the only reason I mention it is because Colin has a story about a memorial bench…

Colin:

In my hometown, there is a bench dedicated to me. It was a graduation gift from a friend who worked for the town, and after he put the plaque on a bench, they never took it down cause I’m supposed to be dead and that would be rude. I got some interesting emails from friends after their parents sat on it and thought I was dead. 

The Matrix Revolutions - 1639

“Look! Look!”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1640

What? The sun? Okay.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1641

“Did you do that?”

“For Neo.”

That’s appropriate. Because a computer program did actually do that.

Colin:

She makes sunrises? Well there’s a bullshit function.

The worst part is, you know the idea was that this was all fated to happen, and she was supposed to make the sunrise for dead Jesus.

Ugh.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1642

“Will we ever see him again?”

Nah, he dead.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1643

“I suspect so. Someday.”

I assume she means anomaly-wise, and not… heaven. Because if it’s heaven… fuck you.

Colin:

Programs don’t go to heaven. The closest you can do is the program protection program. Which is the Win32 folder.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1644

“Did you always know?”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1645

“Oh no. No I didn’t. But I believed.”

The Matrix Revolutions - 1646

“I believed.”

The repetition of the line is stupid.

The Matrix Revolutions - 1647

The Matrix Revolutions - 1648

The Matrix Revolutions - 1649

Colin:

Wait, that’s the end? THAT’S THE END? COME THE FUCK ON.

Let’s go get some noodles.

– – – – – – – – – –

And that’s the END OF PART IV.

Tomorrow is Part V, and the boss fight.
