A radically altered and often very successful edit.
I’m glad I gave Matrix Reloaded one more go. I hated the original and didn’t much like other fanedits but this one really works for me. It’s the product of an enormous amount of thought and has turned a dodgy, almost unbearable movie into a decent one indeed. With an improved plot and better storytelling I was able for the first time to sit back and really appreciate the film’s quite magnificent art direction and stunt work, too, because this Hacked edit relies less on visuals and mayhem – less is more, if you get what I mean.
