As the embargo lifted for The Matrix Resurrections, a handful of critics shared their early reviews for the film on the micro-blogging site, Twitter. However even the critics are divided, some have applauded and loved it to the core, while there are others have called it a 2.5-hour exposition dump.

Kirsten Acuna from Insider writes, “Saw The Matrix Resurrections the other week (in IMAX!) and I enjoyed it! Easily better than 2 and 3. It feels like The Force Awakens – a nostalgic sequel/reboot to (maybe?) kick off a new franchise. Definitely re-watch the entire original trilogy in advance. Full review next week.”

Forbes critic Scott Mendelson called the Keanu Reeves starrer a comedy, “The Matrix Resurrections is a comedy. The action is disappointing and the new characters are thin. But the metatextual commentary is biting. It wrestles with its own legacy in that Jurassic World/Bad Boys 3/Rp1 fashion. I prefer the first three, but this is a wild swing.”

Clayton Davis from Variety loved the film, “The Matrix Resurrections is too self-aware of its existence. Poking fun at itself a bit too much, it’s very heavy on the love story, with not a lot of showstopping action and effects, which is what the people want. Best part is Jonathan Groff but that’s just life at this point.”
