Main Plot

When a beautiful stranger leads computer hacker Neo to a forbidding underworld, he discovers the shocking truth--the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber-intelligence.


  • Keanu Reeves' character, Neo, is the protagonist who discovers the truth about the simulated reality of The Matrix.
  • Laurence Fishburne's character, Morpheus, is a leader of a group fighting against the artificial intelligence controlling humanity in The Matrix.
  • Carrie-Anne Moss plays Trinity, a skilled hacker and member of the resistance who helps Neo realize his potential as "The One."


In the ending of The Matrix, Neo sacrifices himself to save humanity by entering the Matrix and making a deal with the Machines. He manages to defeat Agent Smith, who has become a virus, but dies in the process. The Matrix is reset, and the Oracle predicts that peace between humans and machines is possible. The film concludes with Neo's body being carried away, leaving the fate of the world uncertain.
