The Matrix Reloaded... Reactions?

First, the action is maybe TOO intense. I'm not the kind of guy who shys away from adrenaline movies(the Freddy vs. Jason trailer at my theater had me begging for more!), but I was literally shaking in my seat at times. There are so many action scenes that aren't just intense, but prolonged!
Second, the dialogue was severely overscripted. It lent itself far more to writing than speech. And, while I understand all the conversation about fate is necessary, it gets a bit silly, and obnoxious. I'm not here to listen to pseudo-philosophical drivel, I'm here to see you shoot, cut, and explode. Period.
Keanu Reeves in a mostly verbal role RUINED Devil's Advocate. Learn from that!

It's good, very good. But quite different than the first movie. As my friend pointed out, it's shifting from an action-based series to more of a mystery, in a way. There are some damn crazy twists and turns in this movie. I can't help but wonder if this movie will be seen as much better once Revolutions comes out (kind of like Empire Strikes Back).
My one beef with this movie was the one fight scene (in the Park) was WAY TOO CGI. It just looked like a video game (a really GOOD video game), but a video game nonetheless. I understand that if they wanted that fight scene in there they had to use CGI, but... yeesh... it just looked so utterly CGI that it was distracting for me.
Speaking of Revolutions, I hope you all caught the trailer for it at the end... woe to he who leaves the theater before the credits finish rolling!

Maybe we should go see it Zam
I have not seen it yet but I just want to say that the lean of Hollyweird is so much special effects anymore that maybe some films are being pulled away from an actual storyline.
So long and thanks for all the fish.
