Matrix Reloaded: "P* de b* de m*..."

I stopped at the Eastgate Shopping Centre to take the opportunity to watch Matrix Reloaded. Nothing special about it I would say it's a piece of crap, endless fights, inexistant scenario...the only good thing is probably the special effects (and even part of it is miserable, they obviously wanted to do too much). The scene with Merovingian (Lambert Wilson) cursing in French -- "It's like wiping your ass with silk" he says, should be interesting to French people (you'd better watch the movie in English for full effect, I can't think of how the dubbed version will be). I would be surprised that it does not get a bit famous as it is probably the best one-liner of the movie, though I'm probably sure that I was the only one understanding it in the theater here.

I had some friends that saw Matrix Reloaded the first night it was released here in the US. They said it was terrible - in fact, they almost got up and left. They said there was a lot of useless violence and other stuff that didn't have any purpose to advance the plot.

Obviously the purpose was to do what they wanted to do and to waste the $300M budget in the meantime...
