Understand your comment to a certain extent. I know it's the old adage and everything, but what can be expected of big budget sequels anyway these days, the hype always transcends the results.
As much as I enjoy reading Empire, there's definitely a favouritism inset in the upcoming Star Wars sequel things too, which to me are about as enticing as a Danny Dyer thriller at this point.
The example in that article states about the Matrix sequels that they 'didnít exactly live up to that groundbreaking first effort aside from isolated set pieces and those all-important box office results' which is fair enough, but surely that's all the upcoming Star Wars are similarly aiming for? No point in attempting to separate the issue when it comes to sci-fi series sequels. If anything Reloaded and Revolutions still contained more interesting moments than anything in George Lucas's prequels...

Really theres only two ways you could go with this... The prequels of how the world came to be as it is, and the establishing of the first Matrix. Or, the Sequel route where things are finally resolved.

Face it... M3 didn't resolve jack. Neo may have stopped Agent Smith, but the Machines and their city were still there, and Zion was still only just one city against the combined might of their oppressors.

Personally, I feel that the prequels would be the more interesting set of films... How humans first awakened, the setting up of the resistance etc... The Sequels would just be pretty much the same old we've already had over again.

I actually rate the second film higher than the first. More and [mostly] better action, better pacing [at least until near the end] and cleverly developing its ideas. How people can't understand what the Architect says is beyond me.The third was a bit of a let down, but still decent. Overall a great trilogy, and I can't wait to see what the Wachowski's come up with, but I fear, as with the brilliant Cloud Atlas and the hugely fun Speed Racer, they are just on not on the same wave length as the general movie going public.

Has to be said, I don't believe this is in any way happening and won't until the Wachowskis themselves put out a statement.
