(mbc.net) Neo (Keanu Reeves) is a computer programmer by day who spends his nights in pursuit of deciphering The Matrix: a term he continuously encounters while examining machine code. Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) is Neo's on-line pal and fellow hacker, who eventually reveals an earth shattering secret to the young programmer.
Morpheus is among the few humans who have escaped an artificial reality sustained by machines, that harvest human energy to create a networked synthetic world. Neo may be the chosen one -- the man deemed to reveal this disturbing truth to humankind and rescue it from the Matrix's tyranny.
The Matrix won four Oscars and three MTV Movie Awards. The picture was a blockbuster, garnering $463 million at box offices worldwide and spawning two sequels: The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.
