? ? ? I just saw The Matrix: Reloaded ? ? ?

Recommended Posts

Hot damn. I'm fresh out of the movie theater and I must say this was a treat! There are a few slow parts and you wish they would just fight, but there are plenty of fist clenching connections.

 

I was dissapointed in one of the fight scenes. If you see the movie you realize what I am referring too. It would have been better if it was nearly entirely CG.

 

Anyways, there are some REALLY awesome new characters.

- Niobe, captain and Morpheus' former girl (Jada Pinkett)

- The Twins, evildoers who can dematerialize (Neil and Adrian Nayment)

- The Keymaker, holds the key to "the source" to save Zion (Randall Duk Kim)

- The Architect, the creator of the Matrix (Helmut Bakaitis)

 

 

A few really awesome parts that I will mention and you'll pick up on if you see this film.

 

One - The entire fucking freeway scene. *drool*

Two - Any part where Neo flies

Three - A fight in a car

Four - A fight on top of a semi truck moving at 70 MPH

 

 

 

For those that want to know how I got to see it view here: Screening

 

 

 

 

*SPOILERS---->READ AT YOUR OWN RISK

Highlight this Quote and read my thoughts...

<span style='color:#888888'>

For starters, The CG fight scene I described earlier was when Neo fights the multiple Agent Smiths. Of course this is where A LOT of careful CG work took place and I must admit it was an amazing fight scene, but... It looked more fake than most CG fights. It would have been better to see half real fight half CG. Oh well.

 

The freeway scenes were fucking AMAZING. It starts off with the Twins chasing Trinity, Morpheus and the Keymaker. Soon the Agents arrive and all hell breaks loose.

Round after round of bullets are shot and the Caddie the good guys are driving ends up looking like a fucking piece of swiss cheese.

One of the twins manages to get in the Caddie and this is where Morpheus and a Twin fight in the car. In the fucking car!

Later on they have to ditch the Caddie and Trinity and the Keymaker nab a crotch rocket fleeing certain doom. Morpheus takes care of the twins and rushes back to get the Keymaker. The two of them end up on top of a speeding semi and say hello to an Agent who dropped in for a knuckle sandwich.

This leads to the near demise of Morpheus and the Keymaker when another agent apprehended a second semi and aimed them head on in a game of chicken. Only this time there was no chicken.

This was THE most amazing shot to me. The two semi's collision was like when the helicopter collided into the building of the first Matrix. One hell of a wavelength and it all went up in flames. Luckily the "one" was not to far away...and you can guess what happened.

 

As you can tell I like the ripple effect that the CG people used. Anytime Neo flies in this movie he makes a forcefull movement to the ground (thus the ripple) and hauls ass to the heavens.

 

I may add more later...

RAGE

 

did they use any of the "bullet time" techniques in the editing?

yoink, I have no idea if there is a trailer for Reolutions on Reloaded. I had to rush to work after it ended. So... we'll have to wait until it's true release date. But one thing I did notice in the end credits was that they used ANOTHER Rage Against The Machine song (Calm Like A Bomb)!!! *drooooooool :king:

 

sneak, yes they used some more "bullet time" effects. In fact they used it in the trailer. It's the scene where Trinity is falling and two agents are shooting at her on thw way down. It must have been at least a two minute fall in slow motion with the bullet effects. :D

excellent. i loved this technique and i think i will have to go see it.

i tried to make my own version of this when i had to make a film recently...i ran around the thing i was filming to fast and tripped :(

Sneak... the trick is to have multiple cameras set up in a circle or semi circle. They all film the same action, but then you can edit each camera to show the same frame thus the freeze frame movement in a circle OR edit the film together to show it move in a sequence.

 

If that makes any sense.

 

Example: When Neo dodged the bullets in Matrix 1.

haha, rage man i know all about how to do it properly. when making our film we only had a single digital camera. hence why i fell over..

 

its fucking amazing that they have put a copywrite on that technique..i mean surely you cant stop someone from using a good idea
