Continuity mistake: When Agent Smith is interrogating Neo, after Smith has sealed Neo's mouth shut and he is backed into the corner, when the camera cuts back to Smith you can clearly see a reflection in his glasses of Neo still sitting down in the chair. (00:19:50)
Thomas A. Anderson is a man living a double life. One, working for a highly respectable software company. Two, a hacker under the alias "Neo." The Matrix follows the progression of Neo going from regular guy to being exposed to the Real World. The revelation comes in that the world Neo thought was real was actually The Matrix, a computer program developed by machines in order to use human beings as batteries. Neo is thought by Morpheus - a person Neo has been desperately trying to find in the "real world" - how to control the Matrix. Morpheus feels Neo is the chosen one, the one who will set everyone free from the Matrix. Neo, along with everyone else involved in these missions, are constantly being pursued by Agents, sentient programs whose job it is to isolate those who hack into the Matrix and remove them.
Morpheus: You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
Trivia: In the entire film, there are only two "homegrown", real humans - Tank and Dozer. They both have names of machines.
