Matrix Reloaded at the IMAX

by Suw on June 16, 2003

I just randomly checked the bfi site and guess what? The Matrix: Reloaded is showing from July 4th. I will so be there!

Matrix: revolutions is going to open at the IMAX simultaneously with it it's general release. Now THAT is an exciting prospect!Let's hop it's better than reloaded eh…

Really? Oh, that is just too cool. I'm gonna have to get tix for the IMAX version first, for sure. I mean, imagine seeing something like the car chase for the first time at an IMAX. :drools:

As for Reloaded… I've steered clear of commenting too much here, partly because I've been having to deal with being constantly needled by a minority of people I know who really just can't see the attraction of the Matrix, let alone Reloaded. Hence I'm not feeling quite as objective as I'd like to about it.

However, Reloaded wasn't as bad as some people had told me it would be. But admittedly it wasn't as good as perhaps it could have been.

I'm not sure, though, that we will know how good Reloaded really is until Revolutions comes out. Either Revolutions will answer some pertinent questions and knit the whole thing together, or we'll sit there thinking 'wha?' and ask for our money back.

Yeah, it sounds amazing. I am coming to the conclusion that Reloaded needs another viewing, just to be fair to it. I won't get into talking about the party scene otherwise I'll explode into a ranting mess!

..but I have to say the car chase is pretty damn good. Maybe, the best motorway chase I've seen. Ronin still wins it for sidestreet chase action.

Ah, yes the rave scene. You know, I had been fully prepared for that to be completely rubbish, but it wasn't as bad as I had expected. Although one little nit-picky thing did annoy me. In Matrix we see Neo having the plugs along his spine removed. But when he's getting all hot and sweaty with Trinity, there they all are!! Just like new! I mean, yes, ok, it did look kinda sexy in a strange fetishy sort of way, but still… Continuity, boys!

I haven't seen Ronin so can't compare the chases, but I think it will be a while before we see anything that even touches that motorway chase scene. Specially the two pantechnicons getting cosy in a head-to-head.

Tomorrow I should be able to book my IMAX tix, once my friend has sorted out his schedule, so I'll let you know how that scene pans out on the Really Big Screen some time in July.
