In the original The Matrix, which hit theaters in March of 1999, a beautiful stranger (Carrie-Ann Moss) leads computer hacker Neo (Keanu Reeves) to a forbidding underworld. Hee discovers the shocking truth – the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber-intelligence.
Neo joins legendary and dangerous rebel warrior Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) in the battle to destroy the illusion enslaving humanity.
In the second chapter of the trilogy, The Matrix Reloaded (May 15, 2003), Zion falls under siege to the Machine Army. Only hours before 250,000 Sentinels destroy the last human enclave on Earth — and its growing resistance — Neo and Trinity choose to return to the Matrix with Morpheus, unleashing their arsenal of extraordinary skills and weaponry against the forces of repression and exploitation.
Now, at the confluence of love and truth, faith and knowledge, purpose and reason, Neo must follow the course he has chosen if he is to save humanity from the dark fate that haunts his dreams.
In The Matrix Revolutions (November 5, 2003), Neo, Morpheus and Trinity battle to defend Zion, the last real-world city, against the onslaught of the machines that have enslaved the human race.
And, now as Neo learns more about his heroic powers–including the ability to see the codes of things and the people, he faces the consequences of the choice made in The Matrix Reloaded.
