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.
When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
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
Composer Don Davis thought it would be wasteful for the choir to be singing simple "ooohs" and "aaahs" during the climactic battle cue, "Neodämmerung". He asked that the Wachowski Brothers (Lilly Wachowski and Lana Wachowski) bring him some sort of text appropriate to the movie, which the choir would sing. They returned with extracts from the Upanisads which reflect the themes of the trilogy. The full lyrics of Neodämmerung are available on Davis's website. See more »
When Smith and Neo are running at each other in the rain for the final battle, the camera focuses behind their feet in slow motion. You can visibly see both lines of Smiths on either side of the street. However, you cannot see their opponents, just the feet of whoever it is focusing on. 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 »
The Matrix:Reloaded was good. Not as good as I would have liked, but good nevertheless. Revolutions was unfortunately many degrees below that standard. The feeling I got throughout the entire film was that the Wachowski's had the phrase "wouldn't it be cool if..." on their minds, and due to the success of the first film, nobody would stand up to them and say that, well, actually, it would be pretty cheesy. There are so many scenes that are just awful cliched nonsense. I hope that in ten years time, as happened with the Highlander series, somebody will come along and pretend that these original sequels never existed and create some new ones following on from the first film.
Too many characters with too little substance. Scenes based on effects instead of story, characters based on ability rather than being interesting. A pile of rubbish really.
