In a ruined future Los Angeles, a wheel-chair bound man is swept up into a shelved government military/science project.

An awkward movie that's a little too bad to be campy. I'll keep it around, but only because it's almost collectable. Not exactly awful, but not recommended.

Neo and Trinity are alive because of science fiction magic, and their minds are blue-pilled again because they create lots of energy for the quota of an AI guy.

The writing is bad, the filmmaking is bad, the in-movie lore is awkward and poorly explained, it has callbacks to earlier movies which strip it of uniqueness, the characters are bad, and the acting is mediocre (sometimes because the characters are bad).

This is not a good movie, either as a standalone movie or a Matrix movie.
