Spoilers. I dunno, you probably shouldn’t read this page at all for a few days if you haven’t seen Reloaded.
I 100% agree that the plot of the action scenes in Matrix 1 were much better, if that makes any sense. I dunno, Matrix 1 was a near perfect movie. The reason I think I connected with Reloaded’s fight scenes was again, the Jackie Chan fan in me. In JC’s movies much of the time plot has no meaning. So you’re left to consider the fight scenes on their own terms. And on this level, Reloaded’s fights worked for me.
But plotwise, yeah, kinda lacking. Some of the fight scenes were pretty superfluous. Like a lot of the scenes in the movie, I guess.
