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.
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
In the scene where Morpheus, Trinity, and Seraph are chasing the Trainman, an advertisement for Tastee Wheat can be seen. Tastee Wheat was mentioned in The Matrix (1999) when Mouse was trying to describe the food in the real world. See more »
It had been established that Neo was trapped at the train platform not being "jacked in", but lying unconscious, requiring Seraph and Trinity to bargain for his release. Later, as they are travelling through the Matrix (in the city), Neo announces he must visit the Oracle one last time. After their encounter, Neo is seen being unplugged, not lying in the infirmary.

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.
