Next Thursday, June 16, 2022, the sci-fi action film will finally be released in Germany with some delay “Matrix Resurrections” (Germany, USA 2021). The fourth installment in the “Matrix” series, directed by Lana Wachowski and starring Keanu Reeves, will then be released Blu ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray in simple keep cases and in a total of three limited editions steel books appear with different cover artworks. Two of the Steelbooks contain the 4K version and one another steel book is only equipped with the HD version. All products are over German Dolby Atmos sound and extensive bonus material feature. But can the promising equipment make up for the mostly very negative reviews of the film? And how do we rate the implementation of “Matrix Resurrections” in terms of content? Our bluray-disc.de review editor-in-chief Michael Speier answers these questions in his detailed review of the HD version on Blu-ray Disc. You can read the complete review here read, but his conclusion is very clear and shows that there are worlds between the content of the film and the technical implementation:

Is it a remake? Is it a reboot? Is it a sequel? Is it a parody? – The answer to ALL of these questions is equally yes and no. Actually, you can not explain what “Matrix Resurrection” is – except one thing: superfluous! Two decades after the terrific success of The Matrix, Lana Wachowski discovers that money doesn’t grow back automatically and delivers a new film that dismantles her own world and sells the viewer for idiots. At least the action and aesthetics are right, but that doesn’t hide the fact that the fourth excursion into the matrix is ​​big bullshit, which almost makes the previous two excesses seem good again. The disc is at least technically successful and offers absolute reference in the audio area. And the extensive bonus material also contributes to the fact that the pure rating of the disc is damn good. However, it’s similar here to “Moonfall” – why do you have to bring such rubbish to the market with technical perfection, while the really good films are sometimes neglected?

Contents: Thomas Anderson (K. Reeves) lives in San Francisco, works with his business partner (J. Groff) on the rise of his company – and is regularly treated for his extremely realistic dreams. His therapist (NP Harris) is convinced that Thomas sometimes can’t even tell reality from dreams and wants to help him. When Thomas meets Tiffany (C. Moss), she seems eerily familiar, like he’s known her for a long time. Just how can that be? And why is she like that? And is this just another dream that his therapist warned him about? Maybe the hacker Bugs (J. Henwick) can help him to solve this riddle, who suspects a completely different person in Thomas: a man named Neo, who is said to have saved all of humanity through a great sacrifice. She wants to bring Neo to Morpheus (Y. Abdul-Mateen II), who not only wants to bring light into the darkness, but firmly believes that Neo is needed once more to complete a journey that began long ago… ( pf)
