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.
