Films reviewed: The Matrix Reloaded and X2: X-Men United
Regarding The Matrix Reloaded
Matt: “The human story outweighs the special effects, which I thought was great.So many things could have gone wrong, but the only thing that did was Zion.Three and a half stars”
Aron: "The Special FX are incredible. There seems to be some disjointed-ness regarding the story, the martial arts scenes, and the special FX as though they are three seperate films. Overall, I enjoyed it though. Three and a half stars"
Average star rating: three and a half stars
Regarding X2: X-Men United
Aron: "The male mutants take a back seat to the female mutants in this sequel. An incredibly strong film. I really had a good time! Four stars."
Matt: “Much better than the first film, which I did enjoy.Probably the most important comic book movie ever made based on its subject matter.Especially loved Alan Cumming as Nightcrawler. Four stars.”
Average star rating: four stars
