''The Matrix'' is a multimedia franchise created by the Wachowskis (credited at the time of the films' release as the Wachowski Brothers) which primarily revolves around a trilogy of sci-fi action movies starring Creator/KeanuReeves as TheHero, Creator/LaurenceFishburne as [[MagicalNegro his mentor]], Creator/CarrieAnneMoss as his ActionGirl LoveInterest, and Creator/HugoWeaving as the BigBad. The first film brilliantly used the radical visual effect of BulletTime and became one of the most influential ([[FollowTheLeader and oft-copied]]) sci-fi films since ''Franchise/StarWars'', and at least at the time, was viewed as one of the most culturally important films since then, as well.

* ThisWasHisTrueForm: Agents are capable of taking over bystanders' bodies. If they should be killed, the program leaves and the innocent most recent host is unmistakably dead. There are no other bodies, but all their other hosts are presumably very dead as well, or they just find themselves someplace strange with no memory of how they got there.

** The whole "using humans as a power source" idea. In reality, it would be an enormously terrible idea to use ANY living thing as a power source, for a variety of reasons, listed below. Rumour has it that the original idea was to have [[WetwareCPU the humans being used as processors in an immense computing array]], [[ExecutiveMeddling but somebody thought that]] [[ViewersAreMorons this idea was too complex for most moviegoers to grasp]], so they changed to Duracell batteries.

* ForcedFriendlyFire:
** In the opening scene of ''Film/TheMatrix'' several police officers try to arrest Trinity and she attacks them. During the fight she grabs one of them and forces him to use his gun to shoot another officer.
** Another example of the "cooperative shooting" variant is in ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded''. While Morpheus and the albino ghost twin are fighting over a gun during the freeway chase, they cooperate to shoot at the Agent who has just torn off the roof of the car they're in. [[SuperSpeed To very]] [[BulletDodge little effect.]]

** At the end of ''Reloaded'', Neo and his evil counterpart are lying unconscious. How do we know that [[spoiler:Bane]] is evil? Well aside from the fact that we saw him [[spoiler: get possessed by TheBigBad]] and the rumours that he sabotaged his teammates, the most compelling piece of evidence of his evil is probably the facial hair. Or the "duh duh DUUUHH?!" music that plays when the camera pans over to him.

***They're probably not the only ones to be freed, merely the first and the ones selected by Neo (maybe for their personality traits). They could presumably go back in and grab more, growing the city as they see fit.
