    But that's only an accident because Keanu is wooden and can't act. It's not as if he put a lot of effort into playing the character. He was just his usual dull, wooden self.

    i could agree with this statement if (and only if) he didn't "play" the same character in every other movie he has been in.

    It didn't for me. It ruined the movie and turned me off to the series.

    That's all.

    why is ed bloom trailing peoples?????????? his character was a beautiful character and it was played fantastic well by both actors

    just to jump in on the NOT NEO to win, i agree that the first matrix film was very good and the neo character looked like it may go somewhere but the 2nd and 3rd films killed the character for me as it stayed stuck in the same mould and did not develop any further.

    just my two pence worth

    I actually really enjoyed the idea behind Matrix. I just thought the execution of that idea was kinda fucked up. But I liked Hugo Weaving's Agent Smith.

    No one's arguing with that.

    I agree with candy; the best that can be said about Neo was that at one point it looked as though he might become a better character.

    *sigh* Still looks like he's going to win, tho... no new votes.
    But maybe Ed Bloom will catch up!


    Well, catch up a little more, anyway? Maybe?

    i gave him my vote, hoping someone else would do the same so that we can make sure that neo doesn't continue on.

    i notice that no one has openly admitted to voting for him.
    I voted for him , on the basis of the first movie alone, which would imo have been better with out the other 2 films.

    I can't do that, and that's why so many characters are out of the running for me. If a character rocks in one movie but sucks in four sequels, that's 4:1 against so s/he is right out. For example, I couldn't vote for Bond because it was all Bonds and I don't think all Bonds were good.

    The first Matrix was all right, but it was an out-and-out retelling of an old Outer Limits story (or was it a Twilight Zone? I forget exactly. I'm leaning toward Outer Limits, though.) so the storyline isn't exactly as innovative as it seemed. Likewise, "bullet time" was nothing new; it was just used A. LOT. Hugo Weaving was great, though.

    EDIT: I don't need to put "I believe/I feel/I think/In my opinion" in front of all that, right? You guys realize I'm not making a blanket claim but am merely stating my opinion. WOOF!

    Uh, yeah! I'm thinking Outer Limits too for some reason. Maybe Harlan Ellison should have got screen credit for this.

    Wow, so much hate for Neo. Despite what some of you may think, the original Matrix is an amazing film. I also think that for Reeves' limits as an actor, he does a really good job as Neo.

    You guys really hate Reeves that much? Are you telling me you don't like Speed? Speed was such a cool movie. Mind boggling.

    I pity those that can't look past their hatred for an actor and enjoy a movie. I can assure you, you're missing out on a lot of great films.

    I liked speed. And I did like the matrix. Neo just wasn't the best character compared to some of the others, IMO.

    I liked Speed, and I did not like the Matrix. I don't see how one should depend on the other.

    My decision was between Neo and Red, and even though I ended up voting for the latter, I love both of those characters and think that they're both amazing characters in their own right and both deserved to advance.


    Advancing to the next round :
    Vito Corleone (The Godfather)
    Neo (The Matrix trilogy)

    I was mainly just talking about how much people hate him, not so much if he's a better character than the others.

    My point with Speed is that if you hate Reeves so much, that means you must not have enjoyed the film.

    I have friends and family who will literally not see a movie because there's an actor they despise that bad in it. I just hate that.

    It's seems like some of the people here feel that way towards Reeves.

    Hold on a minute. What objective scale of measure is there by which you hold up "The Matrix" to measure it as "an amazing film"? Or are you expressing your opinion? I'm going to guess that you're simply expressing an opinion (just as I have been).

    I freely admit that I am the most vociferous of the People here who hate Keanu Reeves. Yes yes yes yes yes 1,000 times yes. I can't stand {ETA} Tom Cruise*{/ETA} or Ben Affleck** either. That doesn't mean I won't see a movie with them, just that I really don't like the actors and, as a result, generally don't like the characters they play. Also, if it is a movie that only mildly piqued my interest in the first place, then yes, KR being in it would stop me from seeing the movie. It would be the proverbial straw - camel - broken back scenario.

    And I'm sorry, but the idea behind The Matrix was done in an old black and white science fiction show, either the Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, or Science Fiction Theater. Still, I enjoyed the movie but not enough to go out of my way to watch it again. (EDIT: Just saw Brice's note about it probably being OL. I tend to agree. TZ was always on the lighter side. Although it could've been Science Fiction Theater... Obviously it wasn't exactly the same, but it was a world taken over by aliens. The protagonist wakes up to find he's been dreaming his entire life. It ends with him looking out over all the other humans in their little bins hooked up to the giant alien computer. I think his pod had failed somehow and that's why he woke.)

    I got bored with Speed pretty rapidly, so I've never seen it all the way through.

    I'm certain there are movies I think are awesome and that you think suck; however, that doesn't turn either of our opinions into fact. It's sort of like this picture... Old woman? Young lady? Both!



    *But Cruise made a fantastic Lestat in IWtV.
    **At least Affleck can change his expression.
