While making the Matrix films, the Wachowskis told their close collaborators that they, at the time, had no intention of making another film in the series after The Matrix Revolutions (2003). Instead, they gave their blessing to the notion of gamers "inherit[ing] the storyline", and The Matrix Online video game was billed as the official continuation. Rumors of a new installment began to circulate online in 2011 when it was reported that the Wachowskis had been planning two additional films in the series and had discussions with Keanu Reeves about reprising his role. Another rumor in 2014 claimed that the sisters had submitted a story treatment for a new Matrix trilogy to Warner Bros. These were later confirmed to be false.

I liked it, of course, not a breakthrough as the first part, but an order of magnitude better than the terminators after part 3. So for the continuation of an excellent trilogy, it’s not bad at all. Translated to English
"What is the strength in, brother? – In love!" In general, it turned out better than I expected, although worse than I would like. A bunch of faceless characters and ubiquitous cuts from the old Matrix infuriated. There are no original ideas, but the fanservice is terribly cute in places. Watchable, sometimes even funny. Will do. Translated to English
Horror! Now it is clear which of the brothers was the most talented filmmaker, and who was Lana. Translated to English
Two and a half hours for a stupid and meaningless, mediocrely filmed something that calls itself the matrix, but in fact it is not clear what it is. They show frames from the old parts to make it look even worse in contrast. This movie obviously shouldn’t exist. Translated to English
Terrible, pointless, unnecessary. The costume designer needs to make a physical remark, there was a feeling that some idiot wrote the dialogues, the combat is funny to watch, and the script is just f..dets. The film parasitizes on nostalgic feelings, shows absolutely nothing new. Translated to English
In general, it turned out better than expected, but it could have been better. A good visual range and the presence of dynamic scenes pleased. Neo in search of his Trinity. There is little satire, but it is very appropriate. Merovingian replicas to the heart. As an acquaintance, you can see. All the best! Translated to English
I am one of the biggest fans of the Matrix. I was preparing for the new part, waiting. Finally looked. 280 characters is not enough to express my anger. Almost from the first minutes, I drove away the thought of the last Terminator, which is more like gluing together from the best moments of previous films. But it didn’t work out… Translated to English
Sucked from the finger dumbest plot. Attempts to play with the feelings of the audience on nostalgia for the previous parts. Constant retakes of old footage one to one. There is no hint of the former visual and musical style. Disappointment. Translated to English
I’m not a fan of The Matrix anyway, considering the entire franchise far-fetched and superficial, albeit stylish in places. And this part is contrived in the fourth degree, devoid of style, full of clumsy fan service. Tired and insincere part, having lost the dignity of the first part and gone into minus Translated to English
In short – krinzh fest! The film is just a concoction of interesting ideas (spoiler spoiler: not implemented) and stupid plot twists with a seasoning of "spit on the original films." This action looks more like a sketch from SNL. The case when the "death of the author" is for the good … Translated to English
To paraphrase one phrase from this this film – we will make this film with or without you. The Matrix is a logically complete story. And this is an attempt to cut down the dough on the fans / nostalgia. "If the film is made anyway, why not cut the dough,” said Keanu and Carrie-Anne Translated to English
The style of the film is dead. Standard Marvel glossy. There is no former idea and philosophy. Now this is a romantic comedy without jokes where the whole set of gays was brought. There are no explanations for what and why. Logic is dead. The plot goes for the reason "NECESSARY". The action is just as boring. Graphics are backward. Translated to English
The promo for the film turned out to be stronger than the film itself. The feeling that I watched "Scary Movie" with a parody of "The Matrix". This time, The Matrix did not revolutionize cinema, but simply crap. Completely disappointing. Only rated for the special effects.Biggest failure of the year Translated to English
The meta-meta first act is the best there is: Lana sweetly apologizes, I really want to donate to these old millionaires. But then a slightly autobiographical tale of love and robots begins, with Lana also meta-apologising. In general, the author is not self-confident, leaving at the expense of recursions. Translated to English
Oh, this is following the current trends. How are they ruining the movie? Translated to English
This is not a continuation. Some Wes Anderson flowercorer, not the original trilogy. Fighters are shitty. If you have already invited a couple of old actors, then invite everyone, or no one. It wasn’t until halfway through the movie that I realized who Agent Smith was. Some kind of sur (nothing to do with a whole era. Translated to English
If it were possible, I would put the first half of the film 9, and the second 6. Somehow at first everything is slow, and then once again, some weak scenes and oops – it’s ready, it’s all over. In general, a little more work on the film and it would have come out at 8-9. Well, the idea of the game is cool :) Translated to English
After a week of digesting this hat, I came to the non-trivial conclusion that this is a scam e … ny. Lana and WB go n…th! Translated to English
Retirees are assembled and play on our nostalgia, not even embarrassed to use excerpts from past films. The Matrix itself is pretty boring, but this part has surpassed all the past. Remove 4-ku to what? – Chop down a babos on duckling syndrome! But only the state of emergency did it Translated to English
Don’t ask why, it’s just my favorite childhood movie, and those days were golden both in cinema and in life, nostalgia flooded with a waterfall of bright and touching moments Translated to English
In my opinion, only the very first "Matrix" is a good movie. At least it was 20 years ago. This film is an absolutely unnecessary sequel, with the actual "womens power" and LGBT agenda. I thought there was a lot of self-irony here. If everything was serious, then it’s just sadness Translated to English
You don’t have to go to IMAX. Watch, however, too) Cheap and pointless. At times it seemed that it was filmed not for the big screen, but for television. 30 years ago) Translated to English
The trailers don’t do the film justice at all. They sow the expectation of something mysterious and interesting, but in reality it turns out to be a semi-comedy with non-related jokes with a primitive plot pulled out of thin air in order to collect money. Translated to English
I put what I will watch, but I understand that the film will be a failure. And it is impossible not to remember: why Mr. Anderson? Why do you keep fighting? Do you really believe in a mission, or are you afraid to die? You can’t win, it’s pointless to keep fighting. Why do you persist? Translated to English
