Brief Synopsis:
This is a Matrix sequels edit like you've never seen before. "The Matrix Revolutions Decoded" presents a complete and focused narrative executed in the same run time as the original "Matrix" while unveiling a brand new and more satisfying conclusion to the Matrix saga. Over 2 hours have been removed from the original source material without logical gaps or jump cuts.

Decoded 2.0 released August 2016 creates an improved ending as well as a quick trip to Zion to explain many points that were left out of the original Decoded.

This edit completely replaces 2013's 'The Matrix Revolutions Reprogrammed'.
Intention:
I'll always feel like the storyline of The Matrix sequels was poorly told, but I am convinced that these movies did in fact have a strong story hidden underneath. Themes of control, power, science, faith, purpose vs programming, man vs machine, choice vs causality all resonate strongly in sequels to "The Matrix" but are unfortunately lost among a sea of unnecessary sequences, silly movie twists, and psuedoscience.

Cuts and Additions:
Decoded title added to opening title sequence

Opening of the movie following title sequence picks up immediately after "The Animatrix: The Last Transmission of the Osiris" ends using live action scenes from the "Enter the Matrix" video game. All added scene from "Enter the Matrix" have been upconverted to 1080p, color corrected, sharpened, and had a custom 5.1 surround sound mix added.

Neo's dream of Trinity dying has been removed

Removed scenes of Morpheus, Link, Neo, and Trinity on the Neb at the beginning of the film

Neo no longer visits the home of The Oracle

Much of the footage from Zion has been removed, a quick introduction is given to the important characters. There is no rave scene, no Bane subplot, etc.

Neo and Sereph's fight has been removed

Neo and The Oracle's conversation is altered to remove his concerns about Trinity and to add an overall concern about what he's supposed to do next. The theme of "difference between knowing the path and walking the path" has been emphasized in this edit to better match the original Matrix

Agent Smith's first meeting with Neo has been shortened slightly for pacing

The burly brawl has been shortened in several places for pacing

Several of burly brawl's silly sound fx "bowling pins" have been removed

No shot of Trinity at the end of The Burly Brawl this shot has been saved for the ending

Lock's first meeting with The Zion Council has been reduced to remove Bane and Lock's reaction to Niobe choosing to leave

Cut Neo seeing Rama-Kandra in the Merovingian's restaurant

The Merovingian doesn't tout the virtues of the French

Much of The Merovingian's speech has been reduced for pacing

Persephone kiss scene has been removed as well as her killing the random henchman

Many cuts have been to the highway chase for pacing

The tower to the source sequence has been dramatically changed, no Smith, no Trinity entering The Matrix, no bomb, no rooftop save, the meeting with the Architect is heavily reworked as well as the Architects motivations. and Neo's reaction to them. Some new visual fx work makes some of these cuts possible.

"The prophecy was a lie" conversation has been relocated to later in the film

Neo doesn't have to save the crew from the sentinels, he has no power over machines in the outside world in this edit

The next several scenes play out completely differently in this edit. The first hour of The Matrix Revolutions is completely removed

Added and re-edited a scene from later in the film where Lock and the Zion Council meet to discuss the coming doom

Revolutions scenes that show the train station, The Merovingian, The Oracle, Satii, etc have all been removed completely and you'd never miss them

Scenes are completely restructured so that the Hammer crew, the Logos crew, and the Neb crew can all regroup quickly after the Neb is destroyed

The prophecy is a lie conversation has been moved here

The scene where Zee makes shells has been eliminated and she is removed from the battle for Zion

Neo has a vision of Smith assimilating the Oracle and taking over The Matrix, this is his reason for going to the machine city in this edit

The slow pan of the oracle's apartment has been reinserted from the beginning of the movie to serve this edit

Gloria Foster is restored briefly from "The Matrix" so that Smith can assimilate her. This edit was inspired by "The Matrix Hacked Reloaded". Mary Alice's face is not seen in this edit. This scene has been recolored to better match the coloring of Reloaded and Revolutions

Some of the conversation in the next several scenes have been eliminated or changed to better fit the events and themes of the edit

Bane has been completely removed

Countless edits were made to the battle for Zion including but not limited to: all scenes with Zee and most of the infantry have been removed, Captain Mifune saves the day and opens the gate instead of Kid, action has been kept tight and intense, the battle quickly gets out of hand for humanity. This is my favorite sequence of edits and I hope you enjoy it!

Removed Councilor Hamann's reference to Niobe speaking to The Oracle

Cut several scenes building up hopelessness for the finale.

Neo and Trinity's flight to the machine city has been completely reworked, this is where Neo gets his eye injury in this edit. Most of the instances in which Neo is seen wearning eye bandages have been removed or replaced of shots from earlier in the movie.

The cut on Trinity's neck has been recolored to look like a smudge or a piece of her hair.

Neo doesn't use telekinetic powers to stop the machines during their flight to the machine city

Neo doesn't instruct Trinity how to restart The Logos

The shot of Trinity lying on the floor of The Logos has been flipped

Trinity is alive?!?

Several cuts made to Neo's walk to Deus Ex Machina for pacing

Several cuts made to the final Smith Neo battle. In my edit Neo wins out of his sheer force of will not to give up. He chooses to keep getting up and fighting which infuriates Smith into making his final mistake. Additional edits have been made to reduce unnecessary air flipping and silly effects

Trinity is seen watching Neo in The Matrix and later repairing the ship

The ending is completely reworked, a montage of scenes roll behind the credits. Closure for Morpheus, Niobe, The Architect, Trinity, Zion celebrates.

Trinity recovers Neo's body as her final act of love for him.

Decoded by Jerick is the best of the edits I've seen. It keeps enough of the Zion footage to keep the story coherent. It makes some fairly radical story changes at the end. I liked them, but everyone may not. I loved the idea of moving the Zion rave/orgy scene from the first act of the first sequel to the credits scene! That was brilliant and felt very organic. I thought some of the edits and changes in the very end (to hide Neo's blindness, to change Trinity's fate, etc) felt a tiny bit clunky. But still, it ended up much, much tighter than the source material.
I just really enjoyed this edit and think that every Matrix fan should give it a watch.

This is my definitive go to matrix sequels from now on, the editing is flawless, the narrative does not have plot holes, no more mountains of expositions, unnecessary subplots. I love this fan edit and reccomend it to everyone.

A wonderful edit from Jerick which combines Matrix 2 & 3 which you would think would be impossible to do and kept the story intact but this edit does it perfectly and keeps some of my favourite scenes in such as the mansion fight, the freeway chase and my favourite scene of all the burly brawl. Jerick removes anything that is useless and doesn't need to be the the movie which helps speed up the pace and is now my go to version of the sequels.

I'm one of many people who liked the matrix original movie and the animatrix but got lost with the 2 sequels. The Matrix Revolution Decoded is a great conclusion to the matrix narrative showing the relevant aspects of the scrip and goes right to the point. Good job.

A wonderful edit for the Matrix sequels, which redeems the infamous Zion plot line (but at a price).
As a fan of the DeZionized edit, it's been a while since the last time I watched certain scenes. And I was pleasantly surprised to find that when edited well - they tell a coherent story which supplements the story within the matrix itself.
Gone are many flawed parts of the original films, and by reordering scenes or carefully choosing shots Jerick got around several other plot issues. However, in some cases the film gets a bit clunky as a result - for example, focusing on Trinity when trying to hide Neo's blindness during the trip to Machine City, or when we never find out how the death of the power plant team affected the mission.

All in all - a highly recommended edit.
