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
When Neo and Smith meet for the first time in the film, there is a piece of white graffiti on the fence behind them. The graffiti is written in runes, and spells out "thew" (thorn, eoh, wynn). "Thew" is Old-English, and means servant or slave. This ties into the theme of the film. See more »
Near the beginning of the freeway chase scene, we see the twins take aim at a gold Chevy SUV. First of all, the first head on view we see of the SUV it has it's Daytime Running Lights on, the next time we see this view they are off. Secondly, one twin shoots out the passenger window and completely shatters it, however after the scene cuts briefly back to the twin it returns to the SUV just as it begins to flip and we see the window shatter yet again.

The trailer for Matrix Revolutions is shown at the end of the credits. See more »
The version shown on TBS dubs the excessive use of the word "Shit" to "Shoot" or "Shucks." It also omits the nudity during the scene in Zion about 25 minutes in and the lines "You're fucking dead!" and "I'm gonna fucking kill you!" have the expletives cut out of the scene. Plus some of the car chase was omitted. See more »
Watching The Matrix Reloaded, one is absolutely entitled to say that it is overloaded, too lengthy action sequences for instance, and indeed, a way too lengthy dancing scene in Zion. But next to that, it is obvious that this sequal to The Matrix (1999)takes the story to a whole new dimension. Different characters define the working of the matrix, and the meaning of life itself, in different ways, depending on their onthological background. A conclusion is not (yet) given, which adds to the movie a kind of postmodern quality. For as far as the action sequences are concerned: Groundbreaking. You'll see stuff that you've never seen before. Sometimes the scenes are a little lengthy, which harmes the narrative, but that is compensated easily by the visual spectacle. And yes, the Architect at the end is difficult to understand, but when you watch the film more than once, you'll find out that it does make sense what he says. All together this movie may not be as fantastic as 'The Matrix', but it is definitely a good movie that will keep you thinking for a while.
