I thought Reloaded was alittle...pointless...especially the action scenes...
There was no point in Neo engaging Agent Smith on the first ocassion AND only at the end...does Smith actually make an attempt to draw his gun and shoot neo...
neo never makes attempt to kill Smith...so the hand to hand battles made no sense.

The first one is the best, it seemed from the last two sequels they added more special effects and action with lots of double talk thrown in for good measure, but not trying to do anything new story wise.

I like all 3, but the first one was the best for the simple reason that it WAS the first - it was so original and mindf-ing that even the best sequals in the world could never measure up!

The First movie was the only one that had bullet time.

No, the second one and third one did. During the end of the freeway chase, bullet time occured right before Neo saved Morpheus and the Key Maker. In the second one, it occured when Neo knocked out Smith.

First one for me. It was a different direction in a sci-fi film, I felt.

Well, you can look at it that way, or you can look at it in the sense of the slowing of time.

I'm just going by what bullet time was described as by Gatea who concieved it.
It's best called a fussion of CGI and film.

I think the last two would have been better if the actually used the bullet time.
the best thing about film is that it's real...convincing. The all CGI wasn't ...
Neo was rubber
the Agents looked fake in the second.
The fighting looked like a very good video game but not real like the first.
