The Matrix Revolutions
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Laurence Fishburne, Hugo Weaving
Director: The Wachowski Brothers
At the stunning conclusion of The Matrix Reloaded, Neo (Keanu Reeves) took another step forward in the quest for truth that began with his journey into the real world at the outset of The Matrix - but that transformation has left him drained of his power, adrift in a no man's land between the Matrix and the Machine World.
While Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) holds vigil over Neo's comatose body, Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) grapples with the revelation that the One in which he has invested a life's worth of faith is merely another system of control invented by the architects of the Matrix.
In The Matrix Revolutions, the final explosive chapter in the Matrix trilogy, the epic war between man and machine reaches a thunderous crescendo: the Zion military, aided by courageous civilian volunteers like Zee (Nona Gaye) and the Kid (Clayton Watson), desperately battles to hold back the Sentinel invasion as the Machine army bores into their stronghold.
Facing total annihilation, the citizens of the latest bastion of humanity fight not only for their own lives, but for the future of mankind itself.
But an unknown element poisins the ranks from within: the rogue program Smith (Hugo Weaving) has cunningly hijacked Bane (Ian Bliss), a member of the hovercraft fleet.
Growing more powerful with each passing second, Smith is beyond even the control of the Machines and now threatens to destroy their empire along with the real world and the Matrix.
The Oracle (Mary Alice) offers Neo her final words of guidance, which he accepts with the knowledge that she is a program and her words could be just another layer of falsehood in the grand scheme of the Matrix.
With the aid of Niobe (Jada Pinkett Smith), Neo and Trinity choose to travel further than any human has every dared to go - a treacherous journey above ground, across the scorched surface of the earth and into the heart of the menacing Machine City.
In this vast mechanized metropolis, Neo comes face to face with the ultimate power in the Machine world - and strikes a bargain that is the only hope for a dying world.
The war will end tonight, with Neo's destiny and the fate of two civilians inexorably tied to the outcome of his cataclysmic confrontation with Smith.
