I have seen the film and I liked it. I'm not raving about it. Matrix I was my favourite film for years and my expectations are high.

What puzzles me is agent Smith. He has been clever enough to escape and to "invent" duplication, but he is so mind-blowing stupid when picking time and location for fights.
If he is a virus, why would he try to stop Neo from entering the main frame? In the first film he defined freedom as not having to smell humans. In this film freedom is suddenly to escape the agent status and become a free program within the matrix.

I sure hope that this character has a purpose higher then the entertainment value.

the sole purpose of a virus is to destroy it's host. that's why smith wants to stop neo, he wants to enter the mainframe himself, to destroy it's host.

But when a virus **** up matrix, the big bad ass OS from hell, then naturally the virus dies too. Instead, what if he wants to take the power from the arkitect and rule the virtual worlds himself?

What defences does the arkitect have?

Ohh, so many questions!

ok. now, regular virusses don't care if they **** up the os, because the more they do, the more chance they have that the os can't clean up the virus. their purpose is to destroy their surroundings, and reproducing by infecting programs or files helps with that. they don't think about what happens after the os is destroyed.

BUT

because smith has now part of neo's programming inside him, the story can go many ways. i guess we'll just have to wait until part 3!

Okay, I don't want to get into an argument. I just think it's strange to be unable to distinguish between the two characters just because they're Chinese. *shrug* just your opinion - yeah I know the drill

stop calling smith stupid!
he's smart enough to supply the dialouge of the year-

"you!'
"yes, me."
(jabs hand in other agent)
"me, too"


that part rocked.

well, i guess i am strange! seriously, this really bothered me during the movie! lol! i thought it was a major turnoff.. i still do by the way. maybe it's because we don't have many people here with an eastern look.. i dont know! like you said, it's just, well, strange!

The ending was just wrong! You only do that kind of thing on TV, not in the cinema!
