Rehashing an introduction is one way of winning over a new generation of fans while also appealing to the older ones who remember the release of the original. Balancing that line is a monumentally difficult challenge, one that director Lana Wachowski is more than capable of. Where The Matrix was a stunning feature that was soon subsumed by the larger remit of the science-fiction genre and cultural imbalances of the time, The Matrix Resurrections looks to bring a new and stylish flair to an old universe of counter-culture brilliance. “What makes Matrix different?” one games designer asks. Who knows, but what sets The Matrix Resurrections apart is its embrace of modern tricks and tropes, while also maintaining a credible understanding of the impact the original trilogy had on an ever-changing culture.
