I have to hope that Lana understands this and if done correctly, the important story elements that occurred off-screen will be integrated via good story-telling as needed throughout the film. They don't have to info-dump it in the first 5 minutes, I'm okay with saying "I have no idea why things are different than I expect" as long as she addresses/resolves those as part of the unfolding of the story.If you have to have played the games, seen the animations, read the comic books and collected the trading cards to understand this new movie them I'm out. If you just have to enjoy watching people in shades running up walls and firing machine guns then I'm in.
This should satisfy both the hard core fans who are invested in every nook and cranny of the mythos, as well as those who are more casual fans of just the cinematic story.
As I'm not invested in the Matrix like say I am with Star Wars, Superman, Star Trek, Dune and so-on.. I can be hopeful without fear.. it will work for me, or it won't, but I suspect it will be wildly entertaining.
