The AnimatrixRating: Shrug.

I feel like the first time I saw this, I somehow only saw the first three of the episodes. The first one is a piece of shit, but the last one – in which humans bring captured killing machines into their own simulation and try to convert them to the human cause there – is visually striking, imaginative, and compelling. The one which tells the backstory of the war with the machines is the most interesting, probably, for fans of the original film, and its depiction of the economic and political rise of a machine state is one of the more interesting versions of the story I’ve heard. Other than these, though, overall this thing is tedious.
