Seraph: Did you always know.

There's a point, which is the middle, where Neo and Trinity are busy going to the Robot Capital and Morpheus and Co are heading toward Zion. This is when the sentinels attack Zion and we get a big battle. We are also treated to technology and machines that are both creative and not at the same time. Its kind of basic fighting and almost comes across like a live action version of "Centipede". Also, we are now thrust into watching and trying to find some sort of compassion and energy for a bunch of characters who got a whiff of development in the very beginning of the previous film and to be honest, most of us probably forgot about when it comes time for them to make their mark. It suddenly makes a bunch of loud, banging, exploding and shooting action become...well...boring. You're watching a bunch of soulless nameless robots fighting against...humans who are very close to fitting the bill. There are emotional beats and character arcs that progress over this time, but we just don't feel it. Where there are crowd pleasing moments and the audience should be ripping in applause and excitement it falls flat because honestly...we don't really know these people very well and why should we care.
Next Time: You know the game, we rank The Matrix.
