* HypeBacklash: The first one was so beloved that everyone got pumped up for the sequels, everything was hyped to hell and back... and when ''Reloaded'' came up, it made loads of cash but left many disappointed. (So much that ''Revolutions'' couldn't even match the first film's box office.)

** That bloody rave/sex scene between Neo and Trinity early on in the film. See FetishRetardant above.

* VindicatedByHistory: Inverted. It was well-received by fans and critics during its initial release, and was financially successful enough that it held the title of the highest grossing R-rated film at the box office, until it was dethroned a year later by ''Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist'' and in 2016 by ''Film/{{Deadpool}}''. However, both critical and fan opinion soured after the release of ''Revolutions'', and the general perception today is that both films are pretentious and bloated. Although ''Reloaded'' is still considered the better of the two by a fair margin.

* FridgeLogic: The movie pretty much falls apart with the reveal that [[spoiler:Neo getting into the Architect's chamber was exactly what the Machines wanted to happen]]. Smith is exempt since he's an exile and clearly doesn't care anymore, but everyone else, their repeatedly trying to kill the heroes just seems counter-productive.

* ContestedSequel: Probably Reloaded and Revolutions count as the second greatest examples after the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels.

** The sheer ineptitude of the regular Agents in this movie. While their inability to stop Neo is understandable, even the other red pills make constant fools of them.

** Also includes the Twins.
** The Keymaker.

** Also includes The CreepyAwesome albino Twins. It helps that they have one of the Twins.
few memorable action scenes that ''doesn't'' devolve into {{Narm}}
** The Keymaker. Hell, he even got to make a cameo in the MTV parody of the film!



** That bloody rave/sex scene between Neo and Trinity early on in the film. See FetishRetardant above.



** The film has numerous instances where Neo is clearly not in the scene and the entirety of his body is computer-generated. While not necessarily a Special Effects Failure, it doesn't look very convincing, and the fact that the film cuts to slow motion every five seconds only serves to drive the point home.



** The fight between Morpheus and Agent Johnson on top of the truck has some rather obvious GreenScreen issues.

to:

** The fight between Also note that the filmmakers and studio touted the sequels' "virtual cinematography" as a breakthrough on the level of the first movie's BulletTime.
*** To make it worse, when Morpheus is fighting on the semi, they screw up a basic "bluescreen" Job. Good luck taking it to the next level when you can't even handle THIS level.
*** When they do use CGI for that scene, there are still failures, making
Morpheus and Agent Johnson on top of look like battling action figures. Johnson's earlier jumping off a car is similarly something that - well, if they hadn't done the truck has some rather obvious GreenScreen issues. shot in slow motion they might have got away with it for at least one viewing.

* SpiritualAdaptation: Seen by some people as a live-action version of ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' thanks to the usage of magical doors and keys that are important to the plot.
