* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The rave scene. Rumor has it that originally this movie and ''Revolutions'' were planned out as just one long movie, hence the needless filler.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The rave scene. Almost five minutes of highly sexually suggestive dancing intercut with Neo and Trinity having sex. And it serves no purpose whatsoever.

* FetishRetardant: The rave/sex scene.

* FetishRetardant: The rave/sex scene. The humans are variously dirty and sweaty as they dance in a highly sexual manner, and we see Neo and Trinity having sex with the plugs on their bodies in full view as they do so. Odds are no one is going to be aroused by this.

** For ''Series/{{Mystery Science Theater 3000}}'' fans, the agent Morpheus fights on the truck is Daniel Bernhardt, aka "Jean-Claude Gosh Darn" from''Film/FutureWar''.

* BoringInvincibleHero: There are some complaints that now that he has the powers of The One, Neo is simply too overpowered for anyone to be concerned for his safety in a fight.

* BoringInvincibleHero: There are some complaints that now that he has the powers of The One, Neo is simply too overpowered for anyone to be concerned for his safety in a fight. The biggest action scene actually doesn't involve him at all, with the tension shifted to whether he can get there in time to save Morpheus.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassDecay: The Agents, though still anything but harmless, are much less of a threat than they were in the [[Film/TheMatrix prequel]]. Neo utterly dominates three of them at once during their fight early in the movie, [[spoiler:Smith overwrites]] them without any problems whatsoever, and even Morpheus manages to hold his own for quite a while and without serious injuries instead of getting curbstomped like when he went up against Smith back in the day. Trinity is the only main character to run into some troubles with an Agent, but even then she gives as good as she gets.

** Niobe and Ghost's assault on the Nuclear Power Plant had the potential to top the Lobby Shootout from the first film. Instead, it's a OffscreenMomentOfAwesome that's only seen in the [[ObviousBeta infamously buggy]] tie-in video game ''VideoGame/EnterTheMatrix''.

* VindicatedByHistory: Inverted. It was fairly 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''. 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 considered the better of the two by a fair margin.

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



** Niobe and Ghost's assault on the Nuclear Power Plant would have had the potential to top the Lobby Shootout from the first film. Instead, it was relegated to the [[ObviousBeta infamously buggy]] tie-in video game ''VideoGame/EnterTheMatrix''.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Not enough time is given to Smith!Bane, even though it's his first time in the real world and he's become the thing he despises. It would have been interesting to see Smith!Bane's reactions to a real body; you can see a little bit when he's staring at his own cut hand.

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

* 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.

** The Architect's often mocked HannibalLecture due to his hilariously forced SesquipedalianLoquaciousness -- in particular, his tour of all the words that can convey the concept of "therefore" -- certainly counts.
