The Matrix

DOWN & DIRTY:
Sci-fi: A man discovers that his life has been nothing but a programmed illusion, and sets out to defeat the forces responsible.

NITTY GRITTY:
Neo (KEANU REEVES) is a computer programmer by day and illegal hacker by night. He's recently been contacted by a mysterious woman named Trinity (CARRIE-ANNE MOSS) who informs him of something called "The Matrix," a mysterious entity of which he's vaguely familiar.

That leads to her near arrest by Agent Smith (HUGO WEAVING) and his government type thugs but she manages to escape. Now that they know about Neo, Smith and his team are hot on his trail.

To his aide comes Morpheus (LAURENCE FISHBURNE), an enigmatic cyber terrorist who's number one on Smith's most wanted list. Morpheus gets him out, but then drops a bombshell. It turns out that everything Neo has experienced in his life has just been an illusion created by the Matrix, a device employed by a powerful and intelligent, but mechanized and artificial life form that's using enslaved, but unaware humans as its power source.

Joining Morpheus and his small team, which includes Trinity, Cypher (JOE PANTOLIANO) and a handful of other characters, Neo learns that he may be the chosen one to overthrow the artificial life form.

After Morpheus trains Neo of the ways of the Matrix, he and the rest of the team return to that artificial, dreamlike world where dying in a battle with Agent Smith and his men means certain death back in the real, outside world.

THE ENDING:
Agent Smith and his thugs capture Morpheus and hold him figuring Neo will come after him. And they are correct. Neo with the help of Trinity shoot up the building where Morpheus is held. They commandeer a helicopter and grab Morpheus. Then the chopper crashes into the side of the building and Neo must save Trinity.

Eventually there is a showdown between Agent Smith and Neo in the underground subway station. Neo gets the crap beaten out him and comes to the realization that he IS the chosen one and he vanquishes Smith.


WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
The coooooool visual effects. They stole the GAP commercial slo-mo trick and made it better. If this is the future, I want the sun glass concession.
