The Matrix Reloaded is the second in the trilogy of Matrix movies made by the Wachowski brothers.
Neo and Trinity have been summoned by Morpheus to join him on a voyage to Zion, the last outpost of free human beings on Earth.
Neo and Trinity's work together has been complicated by the fact the two are involved in a serious romantic relationship.
Upon their arrival in Zion, Morpheus locks horns with rival Commander Lock and encounters his old flame Niobe. Meanwhile, Agent Smith has returned with some surprises for Neo, most notably the ability to replicate himself as many times as he pleases.
Neo makes his way to The Oracle, who informs him that if he wishes to save humankind, he must unlock "The Source," which means having to release The Key Maker from the clutches of Merovingian.
While Merovingian refuses to cooperate, his wife, Persephone, angry at her husband's dalliances with other women, offers to help, but only in exchange for a taste of Neo's affections.
With The Keymaker in tow, Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus are chased by Merovingian's henchmen: a pair of deadly albino twins.
Filmed primarily in Australia and California (the extended chase scene was shot on a stretch of highway build specifically for the production outside of San Francisco), The Matrix Reloaded was produced in tandem with the third film in the series, The Matrix Revolutions.
