This movie sets out to be a thriller but gets lost along the way. The twists pretaining to the heist plot are amusing and good actors keep it interesting but this movie goes off on a whole lot tangents that clutter the movie up and add little. This movie includes random scenes about racial tensions in New York, it feels like they wanted to make Crash into an action thriller.

Denzel's character is well-played but wrong for this type of movie. He is a man who feels no pressure and makes no mistakes, not exactly a thrilling protagonist, and he dresses like a pimp wearing a bright white suit and pink bow tie even though he's supposed to be an NYC cop.

3.0 out of 5 stars In Too Deep, July 22 2004
This film is well done but it takes on far too deep themes for what it is; a film noir.

The Matrix Revolutions (Widescreen) (2 Discs) <b>DVD</b> ~ Keanu Reeves
3.0 out of 5 stars An Isolated Half, July 10 2004
The problem with 'The Matrix Revolutions' is that it is not a complete film in itself. It is the concluding chapter to 'The Matrix Reloaded'. Both films together make up a great addition to the first film 'The Matrix', but on their own they are simply lacking. Part 3 is lacking much more than part two because 'Revolutions' has few more surprises and mostly resolves the story of the three films in a concluding act that has been bloated out to an entire film. The conclusion to this series is totally valid, it is simply far too long. The Wachowski Bros. should have made one long second film instead of dragging out the series into an unessicary third film film.
