This site is a pretty good analysis of the Matrix Trilogy. Don’t read it (or the rest of this post) if you haven’t seen the movie yet – read this article (Schulte sent me) as a refresher instead. I was glad I wasn’t the only one walking out of the theatre disappointed with the lack of questions answered.
Imagine you make a movie and suddenly your hero has telecinetical powers: He stops 4 incoming war machines just by thinking it. Wow, that is a twist.
And how did the Wachowskis decide to resolve this riddle in Matrix Revolutions?
Neo: “Tell me how I stopped 4 sentinels by thinking it…”
Oracle: “The power of the One extends beyond this world. It reaches from here all the way back to where it came from: The Source.”
Ahem, excuse me?
