The Matrix Resurrections successfully builds on the foundation of the original trilogy.
This iteration takes advantage of the nature of The Matrix to reboot the setting and tackling modern issues, while able to fully maintain the integrity of the existing narrative. No retcons, no ignoring other films.
Like Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Resurrections is well-executed, fun, flavored with references to the originals, and feels like an authentic work in and of itself (not merely cash grab). I hope those two films represent the start of a new trend in expanding franchises.
I enjoyed it, I recommend it, I will watch it again.
