in a NME’s Three-star review Nick Levine wrote: “The plot developments of the apocalypse are as complex and intricate as you’d expect from the matrix, So [Lily] Wachowski overcompensates by loading dialogue with goofy rendering and self-referencing moments with archival footage from the original trilogy.
Because of this, resurrection can feel like a test of concentration even when it’s gripping. However, the innovative fight scenes definitely prepare if you watch too many Toothless superhero movies, and there are some memorable shows.”
