Following the events of The Matrix (1999), Neo and the rebel leaders estimate they have 72 hours until 250,000 probes discover Zion and destroy it and its inhabitants. 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 25-year old drifter and his future wife from a most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
In 2018, a mysterious new weapon in the war against the machines, half-human and half-machine, comes to John Connor on the eve of a resistance attack on Skynet. But whose side is he on, and can he be trusted?
Six months after the events depicted in The Matrix, Neo has proved to be a good omen for the free humans, as more and more humans are being freed from the matrix and brought to Zion, the one and only stronghold of the Resistance. Neo himself has discovered his superpowers including super speed, ability to see the codes of the things inside the matrix, and a certain degree of precognition. But a nasty piece of news hits the human resistance: 250,000 machine sentinels are digging to Zion and would reach them in 72 hours. As Zion prepares for the ultimate war, Neo, Morpheus and Trinity are advised by the Oracle to find the Keymaker who would help them reach the Source. Meanwhile Neo's recurrent dreams depicting Trinity's death have got him worried and as if it was not enough, Agent Smith has somehow escaped deletion, has become more powerful than before and has chosen Neo as his next target.Written by
The best-selling 1965 science fiction fantasy novel "Dune" by Frank Herbert was considered to be an influence behind The Matrix films. The Matrix films takes place in a post-apocalyptic future, which rebels are fighting back against machines that have enslaved humans, that are plugged into The Matrix, and Neo is The One, the messiah whom, according to a prophecy, will end the war between man and machine, and free the human race, and destroy The Matrix, and Neo has a recurring premonition of Trinity's death. In "Dune", Paul Atriedes leads the Fremen, in rebellion against Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV and Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, and is reveled as the Kwisatz Haderach, the universe's supreme being who, according to a Freman prophecy, will free Arrakis from the Empire. In the novel, Paul Atriedes has visions and in the history of the Dune universe, the universe was ruled by machines that were destroyed by humans in a great revolt. See more »
In the scene where Neo meets the Oracle, when Neo and Seraph are in the corridor with all the back doors, the small piece of wall around the door is white. However, when Seraph opens the door so that he and the Oracle can go through it, the borders of the door opposite to the open one are green. See more »

The 16mm print of the film (sent to college campuses, etc.) features some scenes in letterboxed widescreen form and some scenes in Academy ratio (i.e. full-frame). In at least one scene, this format revealed more than the directors intended (see goofs). See more »

When the credits for the movie came up and yet another great song by Rage Against The Machine blaring in my ears, I just thought to myself, what a great piece of entertainment this movie was.
I was a big fan of the first one (like other millions were) and was eagerly awaiting the sequel. Although it might not be as good as the first one in terms of it shocking us the way it did in 99 when it brought to us such a new flavour in cinema in terms of development in action, special effects and its terrific story. All and all it still held up very well considering the pressure this movie had on its shoulders to live up to the great expectation.
I think that's why a lot of people weren't real keen on this one, because it had such huge pressure, and whatever the Wachowski's produced, it wasn't going to be good enough, or people would say it could or should of been better. I believe the Wachowski brothers made it more epic and like most sequels, you can tell that it had a s*** load more money to work with. Apart from the Zion scene and the Twins not getting enough screen time, this movie was right up there, and for a movie just to sit back in awe and watch all these fighting sequences, car chases and special effects in action, it's a special movie.
Well done Larry and Andy showing everyone just why we go to the movies, Pure escapism and entertainment.
