    This past weekend I finally got around to checking out the 2nd Matrix movie. It's been about 2 or 3 years since I seen the first one. So can someone please explain to me what the heck is going on.

    Where is the Matrox? Is it a alternate world?
    Why are there people living underground?
    Where are the robot "squid" coming from?
    Who are the "agents"?
    Do Donald Trump wear a wig?
    How far in the future is this movie set, if indeed it is set in the future?
    Do people on the surface know about the underground people, the agents, the threat from the squids?

    Enjoyed the move, but understood dick.

    umm...go rent the first one ;)

    Ok..

    The Matrix is a computer simulated world. When a war broke out between man and machine, man scorched the skies to block the sun, since the machines used solar power for energy. As fate would have it, the machines had a power source...man. They grow humans and use them as batteries, but to keep them alive and subdued their minds are put in the matrix, where they can 'live'.

    The people live underground because it's safe and warm...unlike the surface.

    The 'squid' basically hunt the people who are alive on the ground.

    The agents are programs in the matrix trying to stop the people that hack into the matrix (Neo, Trinity, Morpheus etc...)

    Their is nobody on the surface, the machines control it.

    Confused yet?

    So the big chase scene had no real people. It was just a program simulating life?

    Well...kinda...yeah...but all the people have real bodies outside the matrix, but their minds are in the matrix. If they die in the matrix they die in real life...because the body can't survive without the mind...
