Matrix was good, mostly, but there are four major problems I had with it.

1) THERE IS SUCH A THING AS TOO MUCH SLOW MOTION.

Not EVERY SINGLE FIGHT MOVE needs to be slowed down. You have good cameras. I get it. Move on.

2) "Oh no! We've gone three minutes (and one scene change) without a fight scene!"

I mean, honestly, it seemed like every time they introduced a new set, they stuck with it until there was a ten-minute fight scene. Solid fight scenes get BORING.

3) No introduction! They practically start the movie by saying "Oh, Zion is under attack. We're all doomed unless Neo can save the day!" And, honestly, how many of us think Neo *isn't* going to save the day? I sorta wanted a *bit* more introduction - don't just throw us straight into the action instantly, lead up to it!

(Of course, when "the action" consists of what is, in effect, a two-hour fight scene with coffee breaks, it's even worse.)

4) "To Be Continued!"

You can do better than that, folks. Really. You can.
