But lets forget all that, everyone else is now going to be part of the revolution without any such training at all so your role is obsolete *blows self up in shit movie finale*

# Sorry, but it was fucking dumb and shit
There is a reason why Evie takes over in the book and leads the masses, because he put her through hell to make her strong enough to do it without simply rioting.
The Wankshowsies clearly missed that point and then because it didn't not make sense enough, they decided to bring people back from the dead that made no sense whatsoever in a cheap "ooh what does that mean" bit of ambiguity.

# ^ this ^
Taking the Hollywood effect into account, I thought they did an excellent job overall, but there's no excuse for the end of this movie.

# the look was great
but they didn't get the story and failed badly by taking out the drugs and full torture/testing of V sequence

# i think i remember reading an interview with the wachowskis saying they had to take that out because other wise it'd have been an 18 and cut out the market they were trying to aim the films message at

# well of course, thats hollywood sadly
i think the film could have been perfect if moore had just got off his high horse. ok League of extraordinary gentlemen was shit, but that doesn't mean they all will be, especially if he was to help with it, a la Frank Miller

# Sin City didn't excite me
The novelty black and white value wore off very quickly.
Makes me not want to bother with The Spirit even if the effect is a lot more polished now

# the movie is different from the comic book, you can't expect something written 30 years ago to be kept intact, it'd be irrelevent now
torturing evie to make her strong didn't serve the same purpose in film as it did the book. rather than producing a new V, evie becomes a character able to lead the world after the revolution.

the bringing peope back from the dead was stylistic, it was just meant to represent that everyone who had died at the hands of the dictatorship was behind the wait of the revolution.

# I FINALLY got around to seeing the 3rd Matrix film last week

# i love Animatrix
though i could never bring myself to see Revolutions. Reloaded let me down too much

# thats how I felt, but I saw teh "ultimate boxset" thing on the cheap
some of the movie showed promise, but it all became a bit stupid, the final fight was lame, and the actual conclusion was just weak

# I was watching a bit of the first one the other night, the lobby sequence
It just makes me laugh now. Always thought propellerheads was a slightly odd choice, it now feels like Benny Hill music :D

(I do like the propellerheads though)

Thoroughly deserving of the epithet "Epic".

Well done Sir.
