Joining rebel warriors Laurence Fishburne (Just Cause, Apocalypse Now) and Carrie-Anne Moss (Sabotage, Terrified), Neo learns the skills he needs to overthrow the Matrix and return the world to reality in this dazzling, kinetic visual treat from the writing/directing Wachowski brothers. An over-160-million-dollar box office smash.
