The Matrix: Revolutions
The final film in the sci-fi trilogy has arrived. The first two films described how machines enslaved the human race, imprisoning them in a virtual world called the Matrix. This movie has plenty of the gravity-defying stunts that made the first movie famous but far less plot and character development. In this finale, the humans have begun to free themselves and the machines are fighting to keep them in the Matrix. Neo (Keanu Reeves), the human who leads the attack, was born with supernatural powers. He is joined by girlfriend Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and mentor Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne). The war between humans and machines is going badly for humanity, but the situation worsens when Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving), a computer program that replicates itself, threatens to destroy the virtual world and the real world. Neo and the humans must beat the machines and this replicating program too. The humans retreat to their last stronghold, the Zion, for the final battle.
This movie asks a great question that many go through life failing to answer — “Why do we exist?” The most damaging theme in the movie is the idea that humans exist because they choose to exist, a claim that humans are their own gods. While this movie will probably be seen by many people, you would do well to consider what you watch.
