Strengthened by their love for each other and their belief in themselves, Neo and Trinity choose to return to the Matrix with Morpheus and unleash their arsenal of extraordinary skills and weaponry against the systematic forces of repression and exploitation.

Driven by the humanity he once despised, Smith will consume everything in his path on his quest for revenge.
