Story Synopsis:
Trapped in a place between the real world and the machine world, Neo (Reeves) holds the future of both worlds in his hands in "The Matrix Revolutions," the third and final installment of The Matrix trilogy. With Agent Smith (Weaving) threatening to destroy both worlds, Neo is determined to put a stop to his destruction once and for all. (Tricia Littrell)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD picture exhibits the signature look of "The Matrix," with plenty of greens and grays in the color palette. The scenes with touches of vibrant red really pop from the screen. Images are sharp and intricately detailed, with excellent depth and definition. Contrast and shadow delineation are also quite good, with superb visual information in the darker scenes. There is little in the way of smearing or distracting pixelization. Unfortunately, high contrast scenes are not safe from edge enhancement but, for the most part, its presence is generally minor. This is yet another stylized picture that is certainly satisfying in visual quality. (Suzanne Hodges)
