Saw Matrix: Revolutions tonight

According to a source online, the song that rolls with the ending credits of Revolutions is actually a traditional Sanskrit mantra from the Upanishads:

Om Asato Maa Sadgamaya
Tamaso Maa Jyotir Gamaya
Mrityor Maa Amrtam Gamaya.
Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih.

Oh Lord please lead me from the unreal to the real.
Lead me from darkness to light.
Lead me from death to immortality.
May there be peace, peace and perfect peace.

Which is interesting and works nicely in the context of the movie, but still doesn't prevent it from being something of a disappointment.

I'm starting this after just having seen it. I'll give it 24 hours to percolate a bit. Percolated or not, though, I think Reloaded is likely to remain my favorite of the three. Unfortunately, Revolutions left some of my biggest questions from the second one completely unanswered and unaddressed. I don't want to buy the Enter the Matrix the video game just to get more of the plot (more is revealed about the Oracle's change, and about the Merovingian/Persephone), so I'll be digging more online. I am glad that David and I were completely and 100% right about the Oracle's motivations. It is somewhat validating.

I am deeply glad and grateful that we did not end up with preggers Trin and baby Trineo/Neotrin. My relief on this is akin to that of Arwen not being at Helm's Deep.

More after I digest further.
