Neo and the rebel leaders estimate that they have 72 hours until 250,000 probes discover Zion and destroy it and its inhabitants. During this, Neo must decide how he can save Trinity from a dark fate in his dreams.
A cybernetic warrior from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to protect a 19-year old drifter and his future wife from a most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
Neo discovers that somehow he is able to use his powers in the real world too and that his mind can be freed from his body, as a result of which he finds himself trapped on a train station between the Matrix and the Real World. Meanwhile, Zion is preparing for the oncoming war with the machines with very little chances of survival. Neo's associates set out to free him from The Merovingian since it's believed that he is the One who will end the war between humans and the machines. What they do not know is that there is a threat from a third party, someone who has plans to destroy both the worlds. Written by
Zion, from Hebrew, refers to the citadel in Palestine which was the nucleus of Jerusalem, or the Jewish homeland that is symbolic of Judaism or of Jewish national aspiration. However, the word has also been adopted by the Rastafari, referring to their promised land (which is thought to be Ethiopia), and given the vibe, music style, robes etc. of the underground dwelling of Zion, this is probably the meaning that inspired its inclusion in the movie.

When Neo is talking with the Oracle, he says "How did I stop four sentinels just by thinking it?", when in fact, at the end of The Matrix Reloaded, we saw that there were actually five sentinels that Neo stopped, not four. See more »
I got nothing, sir. No sign of Niobe or Ghost. Nothin' but blue pills.

As in the first two "Matrix" films, the opening Warner Bros. logo is green on a gray sky, and the opening Village Roadshow logo is green. See more »
Initially, I was expecting the movie to be more plugged into the matrix than unplugged from it. After deciding to go back and see the movie a second time with that expectation already established, I watched it again and thoroughly enjoyed the movie. I understood then that the movie really required to be primarily "unplugged" in order to make any type of sense at all and close the trilogy. It didn't hurt that the second viewing was on an IMAX, as well. The sound and effects were simply amazing once again, and in spite of all the negative reviews out there, I am satisfied with the trilogy as a whole. I look forward to adding the DVD to my collection; it will be well worth the investment that is required.
