The Matrix is a film about computer hacker Neo who joins rebel warriors Morpheus and Trinity to fight against an artificially intelligent robotic race that have created an elaborate facade of Earth called The Matrix. Neo learns that life on Earth is an illusion created by malevolent cyber-intelligence. Our world is a simulated reality, and our bodies become batteries for the machine that creates it. Neo is chosen to join a rebellion of people who have freed themselves from the dream world, because their leader Morpheus believes that Neo is "the one" with the gift to manipulate the Matrix.
