Well, the Beeb say that everyone is talking about it!
I must move in the wrong circles.
Did try on three occasions to watch, but fell asleep each time. Some films just do that for me, tried Star Wars maybe a dozen times, and I am always asleep within the first ten minutes!
I can see that it has moments of high drama, but the gaps in between are sufficient that the arduous prior hard day's work takes its toll, and I am off to join Morpheus.
