My God do I hate overused, ridiculous, movie cliches. How many times have you watched someone get injured, then give one last meaningful speech before they die in their loved one’s arms. Makes me sick. But this one is just straight up absurd, there are so many things wrong here.
Ahh, the Keymaker. I actually really like this character. It brought an interesting twist to the plot in Matrix Reloaded. Seriously, how fucking cool would it be to have a guy around that can make keys which can be used in any door, that transport you to a different place? This guy is bad ass.
Just look at all those god damn keys! And his hat! He must get so much pussy.
So let’s setup the bullshit scene. The Keymaker is supposed to take Neo to the source by going through a backdoor. All goes well but when they arrive, they run into Smith.
Okay, first off, how the fuck did Smith get in here? As far as we know, the only way in is with the keymaker. The team went through hell and back after instruction from the Oracle to get this guy because it was the only way to get in. I know Smith is a bad ass but seriously, no explanation?
Second, how did Smith know this is where they would be going at that exact moment? I guess he could have been waiting for days on end knowing they would eventually end up there or something.
So back on track, Morpheus puts a gun to Smith’s head and then BOOM like 20 more Smith’s jump out and start kicking ass. The Keymaker peaces the fuck out and sneaks around behind the circle jerk. As he opens the door, the Smith’s hear him and all say simultaneously “Kill him” and pull out their guns.
Neo dominos a path and Supermans his way through the door. The Keymaker slams the door, but not fast enough.
Hang on a second. What the fuck Agent Smith(s)? While battling Neo and Morphy, you tried to ninja fight them, WHILE YOU HAD GUNS?!! They all had guns! What the fuck, man? Why didn’t you just whip them out and start busting caps into asses? Smith even stated, “Go ahead, shoot. The best thing about being me is there’s so many me.” So friendly fire is obviously no concern. Ugh, never mind.
So the Keymaker was shot multiple times in the chest. He drops dead right there, right? Of course not, that would make too much sense. He is held in the big strong arms of Morphy and gives his final words. He gives Neo the master key and “blarrrrggh” chokes on his own blood and vomit.
Sigh. This isn’t the first (or last) cliche you see throughout the trilogy. But why do I hate cliches so much? (I actually hate the word cliche, but there isn’t really a better word to use.) Because it’s something we’ve seen A HUNDRED TIMES. And not only that, it’s FUCKING UNREALISTIC. JUST STOP, PLEASE STOP WITH THIS SHIT. It makes my head hurt and blood boil.
This scene just leaves me shaking my head. I don’t really feel like yelling about it, it rubs me in a way where I just want to curl up and softly whimper. Please, no more!
