This film is not going to work because they've 'serioused' everything up. Master Roshi says it all. The only way it could have worked was if they'd done it insanely cartoony, like what the Wachowskis have done with Speed Racer. FUCK THEY SHOULD HAVE MADE THIS!! The fight between Agent Smith and Neo at the end of Revolutions is good enough evidence for that. The transition from unrealistic manga characters into real people with their hair spiked up is just going to look dumb, because the balance is too medium. If they'd gone mental with the designs they would have had at least something. Way to fuck up one of the most important adaptations ever. Crap. If I ever get to remake this film, I bloody will. And it will be flourescent kickass awesome, not this 'gritty' shit they've turned it into.
Saying that, I haven't seen it yet. But I'm 78% certain that it will fail.
