Mr. Anderson (Reeves) is a late-20th-century hacker who goes by the name 'Neo'. His life is about to get complicated. One day his computer starts talking to him, and that's never good. You see, there's this thing called The Matrix and what it is, is what Neo has to discover. Neo meets Trinity (Moss) and gets nicked by some Agents (Baddies in black, but Agent Smith is played so well by Weaving). Then Neo meets Morpheus (Fishburne) who tells him that everything he thinks is real is actually made by computers who have subverted human beings into batteries confined to pods, and can only be saved by the One

Now, saving the human race might be a biggie. But Neo is helped by Trinity, Morpheus and other Matrixians (not the official title, I made that up). And if you ever wanted to see Reeves shaved, naked and covered with slime, now is your chance (unless you have the same freaky recurring dream I do...). The fight scenes, the special effects and the fight scenes are fantastic, not to mention the special effects. But it is supported by a new and well told story and don't think you can miss this if you intend on watching The Matrix Reloaded
