Movie Monday: The Matrix Resurrections (2021)

It will be almost two decades since we last saw Neo sacrifice himself for the good of the existing human race, ensuring peace with the machines once and for all. Ever since then, with a slim promise of compromise between these two entities, we’ve been wondering about The Matrix 4 plot and how it would unfold.

The Matrix 4 plot will set us up with the beginning of a story in a world that definitely looks different than when we last left it. First off, Zion is no longer, with the remaining humans not living in constant fear of the machines. In fact, some machines are even working with humans in some capacities. Morpheus is no longer alive though Niobe has taken his place, now the leader of the surviving (and thriving?) humans. Jada Pinkett Smith is still in the role and will be aged to look much older.

As for how the events unfold that possibly disturb the tentative and tenuous peace the humans and machines have created, we know that Neo makes a return. It’s unclear exactly how he’ll come back to life in this form, but we do know what he’s setting out to do. With Keanu Reeves back in the main role, Neo will be working to free a version of Trinity from the existing Matrix. Still played by Carrie-Anne Moss, this woman is named Tiffany and apparently lives a very “normal” life with her husband and kids within the program. In The Matrix 4 plot, Neo will be working to free her and likely acts in much the same way Morpheus onboarded him all those years ago.

In all, this The Matrix 4 plot is shaping up to drop us right back in the world we’ve come to know so well through the first three movies. Though time will have passed and the relationship between humans and machines has apparently evolved quite a bit, there will still be some of the familiar themes present. It’s shaping up to be a blockbuster film.
