[quote author=“Andreux”]Okay, and do they both follow through with their desires? To reject the Source and the Matrix, respectively. I’m guessing Neo didn’t reject since, well, he does all that crap in the Matrix
But as far as Agent Smith goes, I’m guessing he rejected it too since he’s still, well, alive. LOL .
Yep yep, you got it. It’s not a movie where you will figure it all out in one sitting. It’s a thinking man’s action film. :love: The point is they are both “free.”
[quote author=“Andreux”] And okay, so what does free will do to Agent Smith? Why does it make him so “evil?” Neo has free will too, and he isn’t evil.
Smith has always hated the Matrix (see part 1’s conversation with Morpheus when he had him strapped to that chair). This is despite his function being to essentially protect it from rebels.
But as Neo’s power increases, so now does Smith’s, since they are sharing some type of code now. Some of this is explained more in Revoultions, but I won’t spoil it for you.
The beauty of the Matrix films is that they are open to many interpretations. I try to give the answers based on the face value of the film itself though.
