Sci-Fi Movie Podcast - The Matrix Reloaded PosterThis week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Ian, Rem and Jonathan discuss “The Matrix Reloaded” from 2003 and directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski.

The Positive
Jonathan thought the second installment is a good continuation of the story and as we talked about in our Sequels special, The Matrix Reloaded continues the story of the original Matrix, expands the storyline and introduces new friends and foes  As Ian said, there was huge anticipation for this movie and the majority of movie goers really enjoyed it.  Rem liked seeing the return of The Oracle. Watching ‘The Animatrix’ is a good idea because it adds more information and context to ‘Reloaded’.

The Negative
Ian found the storyline and underlying to be convoluted and unsatisfying.  ‘Reloaded’ could have benefited from extensive editing, many of the fight sequences and the Highway scene could have been cut down. The ‘Cave Rave’ and sex scene could have been cut entirely.  A wiser course of action would have been to make only one sequel instead of two.

The Verdict
Jonathan considers ‘Reloaded’ to be essential Sci-Fi viewing,  while Ian and Rem disagree. You can certainly watch all three and enjoy them, but it is entirely possible to watch the first movie only and be satisfied.
