Question Which is the best Matrix?

Which is your favorite Matrix film? For me, it would have to be Revolutions by far! I know that's not a very popular choice, but I don't care, lol!

I have to say the first Matrix. The others just didn't live up to the original. MAybe it's just me, but I thought the effects were better in the first one than the other two.

The first one was the best.

Parts 2 & 3 were not what I was expecting for a sequel after seeing the original. And why in the world was Agent Smith made a main character, that was so lame.

The first one was brilliant, the others not.

I only liked the first one...The next two were just too weird.

The first was the best...it had the best scenes and the best story but the battle in Revolutions was the best battle in sci fi history.

People always say that the third film barely took place in the Matrix. That isn't true at all. The first half an hour of the film was set in the Matrix.

Well they're sort of right...The Matrix was being corrupted so they need to geet out but it was necessary to end the cycle that Smith continues to...otherwise it would have gotten into the machine main frame at the machine city.Neo..was geneticly encoded with the base coding of the matrix. His DNA was encoded with it. His bio electric field emitted the signal that the whole matrix and the entire existence of the machines were based on.The machines used him as a flash drive to store that original code because once Smith corrupted everything everything machine would have been virually destroyed. The machines were foced to destroy Zion repeatedly to force the issue everytime the cycle restarts.

The first one. The other two seemed to go into a new premise which wasn't as good as the first. Reloaded as an action flick was cool though.
