Bane/Smith and Neo are both in an unconscious state. The former is said to be merely asleep, whereas neural patterns of Neo are identical to those of people who are connected to the Matrix. Morpheus, dispirited after the destruction of the Nebuchadnezzar and discovering the true nature of the Prophecy at the end of the last film, starts a search for Neo within the Matrix despite him not being jacked in. Neo is in fact trapped in a limbo: a subway station named “Mobil Avenue” that is a transition zone between the Matrix and the Source (the Machine mainframe). “Mobil” is notably an anagram for “Limbo”.
The younger half of the writing-directing-producing team The Wachowski Brothers, Andy Wachowski dropped out of Emerson College in Boston to pursue a career in show business. Collaborating with his older brother Larry, the duo completed their first script which was optioned by producer Dino De Laurentiis and eventually became the Warner Bros. feature “Assassins” (1995). Another writer polished the script, so the finished product, starring Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas as hit men, veered between generic actioner and character study and ended up a box-office disappointment.
The Wachowskis chose a chancy project for their directorial debut, “Bound” (1996), a romance-thriller featuring Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon as criminal lesbians in love. Drawing on influences as varied as Billy Wilder (“Double Indemnity” 1944), Roman Polanski (“Chinatown” 1974) and Sam Raimi (“The Evil Dead” 1983), the brothers set out to create a modern film noir that would invert the genre.

The Matrix films get progressively worse, which is sad because they should have done the opposite.
Para finalizar, o mais fraquinho da trilogia, com diálogos que rompem a barreira do ridículo e histórias paralelas ainda mais ridículas e irrelevantes. Neo quase pôs tudo a perder por um motivo BEM egoísta. Porém, no final, ele se entrega. Percebe que PRECISA abrir mão de sua individualidade para que todos possam sobreviver. E assim, o fim ("o retorno à fonte") fecha o ciclo iniciado com a "saída" da mesma fonte.
The idea of The Matrix is amazing, but Reloaded and Revolutions falls short....really short. They were grasping for straws at the end. It was at times confusing, but most of the time just poor acting. In short watch The Matrix and Animatrix and stop it's not worth it to keep going. I wish I did.
