I saw it last night. It’s good, not great. Parts are great. Parts are poor (dialogue and plot-wise). The Wachowski brothers seemed to have asked each other several times “Wouldn’t it be cool if….?” And answered the question wrong. Nevertheless, it’s very enjoyable and it’s entirely possible the third Matrix will fix many of the problems with the second one. I’m not going to review it for NRO but, once again, Stephen Hunter does a
great job (though I think I liked it a bit more than him). Personally, though, it’s a not a review I would read until after I saw the movie.
